Savages: Stones Stoner Film Reminds Us Why Marijuana Should Be Legal

Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, July, 6th 2012 by THCFinder
The new Oliver Stone stoner film, Savages, opens today, July 6. It’s based on Don Winslow’s 2010 novel, but I’ve noticed in reviews that John Travolta has a line about marijuana that isn’t in the book: “This stuff’ll be legal in three years,” he says. “Embrace the change.” It’s an apt update.
 
Travolta, mind you, doesn’t play some wishful-thinking pothead. His character is a corrupt federal anti-drug agent who, in the novel, seems burned out on the futile task of marijuana interdiction. He’s just as weary of watching the ghastly violence, both in Mexico and the U.S., that results from the illegal trafficking of a multi-billion-dollar drug that at least half of America now believes should be legal. Our largest cities appear to believe it too, including New York, where police have been told they should no longer arrest people found in possession of small amounts of pot; and Chicago, where last month the city council voted resoundingly to let cops give most marijuana violators tickets instead of handcuffs so they can focus on more important crime-fighting targets.

Teens Trying Marijuana for the First Time is More Frequent in June and July

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, July, 5th 2012 by THCFinder

According to study results recently released by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), teens are more likely to try marijuana or tobacco for the first time in the months of June and July.

 

"More free time and less adult supervision can make the summertime an exciting time for many young people, but it can also increase the likelihood of exposure to the dangers of substance abuse," SAMHSA Administrator Pamela Hyde said in the press release. "That is why it is critically important to take every opportunity we can throughout the year to talk to our young people about the real risks of substance abuse and effective measures for avoiding it, so they will be informed and capable of making the right decisions on their own."

 

“Talk to our young people about the real risks of substance abuse?” Does she mean the truth, or more propaganda? If she means truth, here it is: if your kids are going to try either marijuana or tobacco this summer, you want them to try marijuana. It’s no contest. While it’s impossible to overdose on marijuana and studies show smoking cannabis doesn’t cause impaired lung function, tobacco use kills hundreds of thousands of people every year in this country alone and can lead to emphysema, heart disease and more.

 

First-time alcohol use increased as well, to more than 11,000 adolescents a day in June and July - with similar levels in December. The number is sometimes twice as much as the 5,000 to 8,000 teens who start drinking on any average day in the year.

 

Alcohol kills 25,000 people every year just in accidents, not to mention how much damage it does to your liver and brain cells.

 

Don’t lie to your kids about marijuana. It will just make them think things like tobacco and alcohol are less dangerous, when they are much more deadly than marijuana could ever be.
