Yes I understand it is opinion, but when you have people putting untrue information, people are going to read it as fact. I had more fsctual information in my reply than he did in his entire "commentary"
fine.......kudos to the east lake Tribune for putting an unbiased "commententary/opinion" like the cofounder of the Arizona for a drug free youth on here to spread some more Reaganesque Just say now lies to the American people
Now since I did a rebuttal, why dont you guys ask him for oneAug 18, 2010
P.S. If Alex is so concerned about the youth of Arizona getting drugs maybe he should look into the majority of studies that have shown that the prohibiton of marijuana has made it easier for kids to get weed than it is to get cigarettes or alcohol.
Keep pretending that Just Say No works. Our kids depend on itAug 17, 2010
Dennis, your arguement makes no sense.......you'd rather keep allowing drug cartels and gangs to have the drug money and force common american citizens to keep paying outrageous prices just to smoke a joint to relax. you got your priorities way otu of whack buddy.
P.S. prohibition makes it easier for kids to get drugs. Unlike a regulated licensed vendor for adults, a drug dealer will never I.D. your children. And they may have harder drugs in their other pocket.
But you keep thinking that its a good idea to keep something that thirty one million people did last year illegal and keep letting the drug cartels and gangs have the financing from it instead of the American economy and tax system........Aug 17, 2010
Here's a few
The Institute of Medicine, The American Medical Association, Our own National congressional research committee, The New England Journal of Medicine, The American Academy of Family Physicians, American Nurses Association, American Public health Association, British Health Association along with about 100 other state and national health orgainzations.
By the way mas kudos to the East valley Tribune for having an "unbiased" journalist like the cofounder of Arizonians for a drug free youth doing your "story" about marijuana. How about jane Hamsher or neil franklin or Keith Stroup next week so we can have the other side of the stroy. You guys should be ashamed of yourselves for this blatent attempt at biased journalism. He's no journalist and he doesn't deserve one more line of your newspaper
And while he's quoting the American cancer society, the American glaucoma society and the national multiple schlerois society about their stance he should also tell you that all three of those organizations support further research on cannabis and its effects on those illnesses. It's just more Nancy Reagan just say no rhetoric that has been shown to have little to no effect on drug usage and in some cases has shown to have negative consequences.Aug 17, 2010
