If a mood altering drug provides subjective benefits to people who have some medical problem, what’s the big surprise?
I am surprised at the weak nature of the evidence in this new study. Marijuana is an intoxicant, and if I give an intoxicant to people, i would expect them to say they feel better.
The editorial hits the nail on the had though–medical marijuana is mostly about legalizing recreational marijuana.
Why not, we have been rolled by the left and the welfare state is in full bloom. Aldous Huxley predicted this developmental stage in Brave New World, only in his book the intoxicant for the masses was Soma. “All the advantages of Christianity and Alcohol, none of their defects.” Would marijuana be Soma?
Huxley’s dystopia eliminated family, promoted casual promiscuity, and portrayed an intentional dumbing down of the populace with a systematic development of an oligarchy of alphas and betas–are we there yet?
