Off-Topic / Stoned Drivers vs. Drunk Drivers
« on: August 30, 2010, 06:18:51 am »Message ID: 228938
A few weeks ago, I noted that the Obama administration, reputedly more enlightened than its predecessor on matters of drug policy, is encouraging states to enact gratuitously punitive laws that treat drivers with marijuana metabolites in their urine as if they were drunk. Since traces of marijuana can be detected in urine long after the drug's effects have worn off, this policy is just an excuse for sending pot smokers to jail. I suggested that tests of THC in blood would be a more accurate measure of impairment, comparable to the standard for alcohol. But as at least one commenter noted, there is an argument for treating drivers under the influence of marijuana less severely than drivers under the influence of alcohol: They are less of a threat to public safety. Experiments repeatedly have found that marijuana has a less dramatic impact on driving ability than alcohol does, with the added advantage that pot smokers seem to be more aware of their impairment and therefore tend to compensate for it by slowing down (whereas drinkers tend to speed up). In the latest study, reported recently in the Journal of Psychoactive Drugs, subjects who smoked a joint containing marijuana with about 3 percent THC "decreased their speed [more than the sober control subjects did] and failed to show expected practice effects during a distracted drive," but "no differences were found during the baseline driving segment or collision avoidance scenarios."

In their book Marijuana Is Safer, which I reviewed in the April issue of Reason, Steve Fox, Mason Tvert, and Paul Armentano cite marijuana's relatively minor impact on driving ability as a public safety advantage. To the extent that legalizing pot encourages people to shift from alcohol to marijuana, it could actually produce a net decrease in traffic deaths, contrary to the nightmare scenarios painted by prohibitionists.

One of my Mods posted this tribute to the late ALice in Chains singer on my live music website, thought I would share it here



Most all of us, no matter what our age or preferred genre, know who Layne Thomas Staley was.
This thread is in honor of his birth on August 22, 1967, in the town of Kirkland, WA.
In celebration of his life and times, take a look, read through and maybe you can post a thought,
a memory, or a pic. Maybe add your favorite AIC/Mad Season song, or lyrics.
All comments welcome.

Off-Topic / If Gambling’s Good, Why Not Pot?
« on: August 15, 2010, 04:58:09 am »Message ID: 220832
Taken from

I spoke to Kevin Krueger recently to ask him to explain the difference between his party’s voracious criticism of gambling expansion (in particular online wagering) while in opposition and the fact it is salivating as it expands gambling like no other government in North America.

During the conversation, the Kamloops-South Thompson MLA and tourism minister compared government involvement in cyber-casinos to the failed prohibition experience of eight decades ago.

“There’s no going back,” he said of government’s foray into gambling. “It’s like alcohol. Prohibition ended up benefitting organized crime and government changed its mind.”

Based on that view, I asked, why shouldn’t marijuana — or any other illegal drug, for that matter — be legalized? It’s a fact prohibition benefits criminals and, the stricter the prohibition, the more money flows into the pockets of the underworld.

Krueger mentioned the fact the legalization issue is a federal mandate (true, though provinces can take stands and push for needed change); argued marijuana is a gateway drug (actually, alcohol is the pre-eminent gateway drug); and that he has heard reports of dealers lacing marijuana with stronger, addictive drugs to create a repeat customer base.

The last claim is hard to believe, considering the $7-billion-a-year marijuana industry hardly needs anything more than the plant to maintain customers.

And, for argument’s sake, even if it were true, that’s more reason for government to legalize, regulate and tax pot. Government did so for alcohol and I would suggest treating teens for drinking bad Budweiser and busting stills in the hills are rare events indeed for police and physicians.

Seriously, if Rich Coleman — the minister responsible for gambling in B.C. — can essentially argue B.C. can’t beat them, so it is joining them in the $100 million residents allegedly spent annually on offshore gambling websites, why wouldn’t he and the Liberals push for the same when it comes to the question of marijuana?

Why? Because this is the way it has always been. Because Canada has a prime minister who follows the failed U.S. war-on-drugs mantra in lockstep, a leader who makes embarrassing comments, such as pointing to the thousands of murders in Mexico as a reason not to legalize pot — somehow missing the fact those thousands of murders occur precisely and only because pot and other drugs remain illegal.

Opponents often argue legalization will legitimize pot-smoking. Well, why shouldn’t it be legitimized?

Is there an iota of difference between a person unwinding after work with a scotch and soda and a person unwinding after work with a joint, aside from the fact our silly society labels the latter a criminal for no apparent reason?

Opponents often charge legalization’s road to legitimization will result in more young people trying marijuana.

Baloney. Ask your average teenager to get you a case of Heineken and ask another teenager to get you a bag of weed. Guess which one will find it near impossible to deliver your goods?

That’s because legalization has dropped the price of alcohol to levels that have eliminated organized crime and the need to make your own, while regulation has made it appropriately difficult for minors to get their hands on booze.

Pot? It’s everywhere.

It’s more available illegal than it ever would be as a legal, regulated substance.

In 2002, the Senate Special Committee on Illegal Drugs called for the legalization of marijuana, noting that prohibition of marijuana has done little to reduce its use despite vast amounts of money spent on law enforcement, that marijuana is not a gateway to harder drugs like ******* and ******, that marijuana is not generally addictive (less than 10 per cent of users become addicted) and that pot is less harmful than alcohol.

The very fact marijuana is illegal is the reason organized crime, violence and sky-high prices are part of the equation.

Add to that electrocutions and fires (caused when growers mess with hydro connections) and one has to wonder why the powers-that-be cannot see that legalization is the answer that makes the most sense.

Off-Topic / the Biggest Medical Breakthrough Since the Discovery of Antibiotics?
« on: August 06, 2010, 05:06:18 am »Message ID: 217124
"Is this the Biggest Medical Breakthrough
Since the Discovery of Antibiotics?"
Harvard Researchers are saying this miracle ingredient which helps keep your blood pressure in the normal range, helps your heart health, and better controls the aging process could be the biggest medical breakthrough in 30 years.*


Some Harvard-educated researchers believe they’ve discovered a proverbial ‘fountain of youth’.*

They’re talking about resveratrol, calling it a miracle ingredient, and the greatest discovery since antibiotics.*

Resveratrol is a compound found in the skin and seeds of grapes.

Researchers have been mystified for years about how the French can smoke cigarettes and eat high-fat foods, yet still have extremely low rates of cancer and heart disease. They call it the French paradox.

Harvard researchers Dr. Christoph Westphal and David Sinclair conducted genetic research to investigate the French paradox.

Until now, scientists believed drinking red wine had health benefits*… but couldn’t put their finger on exactly why.

Now they believe the resveratrol in wine activates cells into behaving more youth-like in a number of ways.*

The biggest hurdle with resveratrol is finding a way to consume the large concentrations required to provide you with a benefit. You’d need several bottles of wine per day to get the anticipated benefit from resveratrol. Drinking large amounts of wine or other alcoholic beverages will increase your insulin levels, which will eventually have a negative impact on your health in a number of ways.

I’ll tell you in a minute how you can get your highly-concentrated resveratrol without the alcohol, sugars and calories of red wine.

But first, let’s discuss how to control your free radical levels…
