Summited Bill to Virginia Legislature Fox News and NBC Some key issues or landmarks New VA medical cannabis policy IOM medical Marijuana report Topics Discussed: motorcycle accident chronic pain the path to activism marijuana control cannabis regulation cannabis reduces overdoses the history of cannabis hemp ancient Chinese cannabis evil cigarettes evil alcohol cannabis products after WWI Marijuana tax act machine gun tax 1914 federal drug laws The Boogeyman of marijuana the influence of state laws U.N. Meeting in Vienna, Austria is marijuana a medicine? is marijuana a gateway drug? drug cartels Portugal Nixon’s White House - quote from John Ehrlichman, served as President Richard Nixon’s domestic policy chief “You want to know what this was really all about,” Ehrlichman, who died in 1999, said, referring to Nixon’s declaration of war on drugs. “The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people. You understand what I’m saying. We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did.” http://www.drugpolicy.org/press-release/2016/03/top-adviser-richard-nixon-admitted-war-drugs-was-policy-tool-go-after-anti 61st Commission on Narcotic Drugs, 12-18 March 2018, Vienna http://www.emcdda.europa.eu/news/2018/61st-commission-narcotic-drugs_en The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA): “States with medical cannabis laws had a 24.8% lower mean annual opioid overdose mortality rate (95% CI, −37.5% to −9.5%; P = .003) compared with states without medical cannabis” laws.
