Chelsea Clinton Suggests Marijuana Is Killing People
Former White House rugrat Chelsea Clinton believes marijuana may have some therapeutic benefits, but she also thinks the herb may be killing people in states where it has been made legal.
During a recent appearance at Youngstown State University, Clinton—campaigning on behalf of her mother, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton—told a crowd of students that “anecdotally, we have lots of evidence” that cannabis is effective in treating epilepsy and stimulating the appetites of those undergoing chemotherapy treatment. But she then went on to say that there are still some public health concerns associated with pot consumption due to recent deaths in Colorado.

Pot Matters: The Drug Czar Is on Drugs
When it comes to marijuana, the nation’s drug czar and his office are still against it. This should come as no surprise to anyone. But it’s important to keep an eye on the official position of this cabinet level office as marijuana’s legalization goes before voters in five states November. The current Director of National Drug Control Policy is Michael Botticelli, and this makes him the nation’s drug czar. What he thinks about marijuana and legalization are important, but the focus here, really, is what his agency publishes in terms of information and official policy positions.
Indeed, the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) has a part of their website devoted to marijuana. Pot is, after all, “a topic of significant public discourse in the United States.” And ONDCP is not too happy about this because “Confusing messages being presented by popular culture, media, proponents of ‘medical’ marijuana, and political campaigns to legalize all marijuana use perpetuate the false notion that marijuana is harmless. This significantly diminishes efforts to keep our young people drug free and hampers the struggle of those recovering from substance use disorders.”
