DrugSense FOCUS Alert #351 - Sunday, 29 July 2007
On Friday, the British medical journal Lancet published a 13 page meta-analysis 'Cannabis Use and Risk of Psychosis in Later Life.'
As a result the media around the world has used the study, most often with incorrect data and conclusions, to create another reefer mania scare.
Backers of stern cannabis prohibition laws have seized on this news to urge the British government to increase the potential punishment of users under their laws.
More reasoned voices have cautioned that escalating criminal penalties based on a perceived increased health risk would be counterproductive. See 'Experts Dismiss Case for Cannabis Reclassification' http://www.mapinc.org/drugnews/v07/n901/a05.html
MAP is continually archiving both international and domestic coverage of the issue as we receive clippings. These press clippings may be reviewed by using the following link, which is updated nightly. Note that MAP identifies press stories by the location of the story. Thus a number at the link are identified as "UK:" but are actually from newspapers in the United States or Canada.
Please consider writing and sending Letters to the Editor to the newspapers of your choice. It is important that mainstream newspaper editors and opinion writers are given a more complete and balanced perspective than that being pushed by prohibitionists. If you elect to write to more than one newspaper, we suggest at least some modification of your message so that each newspaper receives a unique letter.
hey everyone...I am taking pictures of some stuff I drew recently (on my friends legs hehe) I can't wait to show them. Unfortunately I wont be home for another day or so to load them onto the computer. Also, I have a really good idea that I want to run by you guys but not now, its a bit complicated.
So who grew up watching Legends of the Hidden Temple? I've been in nostalgia mode and when watching the show high I swear the "green monkey" on the shirt was pinching the girl's nipple (well, if she has one). And my friend Tonya started to say "come in tokyo!" like the nipple was a radio dial or something. Anyway, here is the green monkey. Sorry it's hard to see, the pen I was using was half dead.
Here are some more...I had these pictures of them kicking around on my computer so I figured that I would put them up here. Again, none of this is really recent but hopefully I'll be posting more soon.
I just joined this group...seems like fun. I'm just posting a few pictures of some art I did in my sketch book when I was high. I figured that for this type of community that is probably the best intro I could give :)
