"I have come to doubt whether the FDA rules should apply to cannabis. There is no question about its safety. It is one of humanity's oldest medicines, used for thousands of years by millions of people with very little evidence of significant toxic effects. More is known about its adverse effects than about those of most prescription drugs." Dr. Lester Grinspoon, retired professor of psychiatry at Harvard. Recent interview with Dr. Grinspoon here.

Will Foster

"I am going to be an activist. It is up to us to change these laws. And it is going to take money, because if we don't put in the money we aren't going to win. That is the bottom line. My medical use of marijuana never interfered with my work; I ran a successful business. I told my conservative doctor what I was doing; he did not really agree with it because of the health risk of smoking, but he witnessed my positive results. I was minding my own business taking care of my health and my family. What was I doing to anybody that got me 93 years?" By former Oklahoman Will Foster after his release from prison. He was convicted of cultivating marijuana, used for his own medical purposes.

"A small group of thoughtful people could change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." Margaret Mead

FROM A READER: I live in Oklahoma and I have Lupus along with other medical conditions. I have been put on & taken off meds by the doctors. I would rather be on something natural that helps me live a normal life instead of evil medication doctors are paid to put you on. I'm tired of suffering and dying at the same time with no legal solution that works for me. Oklahoma needs to understand not everyone can deal with medications that are made by man. If its such a Christian state OKLAHOMA SHOULD ALLOW MEDICAL MARIJUANA TO PEOPLE SUFFERING!!

Oklahoma's Support For Medical Marijuana Remains High

Recent polling by Oklahoman's For Health indicates that a majority of Oklahoman's would approve a medical marijuana program. Tulsa, OK (PRWEB) April 02, 2015

A recent Oklahoma SoonerPoll found that 60% of Oklahomans support the legalization of medical marijuana in the state. "We're excited and encouraged by the overwhelming support Oklahoma voters have consistently shown for the use of cannabis as medicine," said Chip Paul, chairman of the medical marijuana advocacy group Oklahomans for Health. Most participants who were polled, in fact 60% are over 55 years old, indicating strong support for an issue that is already popular among younger voters. "Normally, when almost two thirds of our polling respondents are above age 55, we would expect to see much lower supportive numbers," Paul said.

Oklahomans for Health also asked if Oklahoman's would support a medical marijuana program on Indian Tribal land. A recent federal ruling allows Indian Tribes to enact marijuana legislation, similar to a state, and be legal under federal laws. Surprisingly, even with almost two thirds of the respondents over age 55, the results showed that 43% of Oklahomans would support such a program on Indian Tribal land. "I am sure this is much more support than the Oklahoma Indian tribes had when they were considering allowing gaming." Paul added.

The organization also asked if Oklahomans would support a recreational marijuana program similar to Colorado. Polling showed that 31% of respondents would support a recreational program in Oklahoma. "A recreational marijuana program is not our issue, although we thought it beneficial to ask the question. We are about getting a robust medical marijuana program here in Oklahoma. Patients around the country are turning to cannabis to help alleviate a variety of medical conditions. It's time to give people access to the medicine they need and want," Paul said.

Oklahomans for Health is the organization behind SQ 788 for the vote in 2018 to legalize medical marijuana in Oklahoma. More information about Oklahomans for Health can be found here, or on Facebook.

Medical Marijuana News and Views

Marijuana Research Reviewed

From 2001, here's an interesting article on what research about marijuana has come to mean: Health Risks of Marijuana Use (James Geiwitz, Ph.D.). Its conclusions presented below


Reviews that do show health risks of marijuana are typically based on poorly-designed research, e.g., using massive doses of THC, far more than even those levels consumed by the heaviest marijuana smokers. Every study showing health risks has been discredited or refuted; cannot be replicated; or has been shown to be in error by a majority of studies on a given topic.

Apart from potential dangers from nonTHC factors in marijuana smoke, the best research shows clearly that there are no substantiated health risks associated with marijuana use. Indeed, there may well be health benefits (in addition to the proven benefits of medical marijuana), as marijuana levels of THC seem to strengthen the immune system.

Laws prohibiting marijuana on the basis of health risks cannot be justified by the research literature.

America's marijuana policies continue to be hopelessly divorced from science rather than driven by it. Much morehere.

The Likely Cause Of Drug Addiction Has Been Discovered.

It is now one hundred years since drugs were first banned -- and all through this long century of waging war on drugs, we have been told a story about addiction by our teachers and by our governments. This story is so deeply ingrained in our minds that we take it for granted. It seems obvious. It seems manifestly true. Until I set off three and a half years ago on a 30,000-mile journey for my new book, Chasing The Scream: The First And Last Days of the War on Drugs, to figure out what is really driving the drug war, I believed it too. But what I learned on the road is that almost everything we have been told about addiction is wrong -- and there is a very different story waiting for us, if only we are ready to hear it. If we truly absorb this new story, we will have to change a lot more than the drug war. We will have to change ourselves.

I learned it from an extraordinary mixture of people I met on my travels. From the surviving friends of Billie Holiday, who helped me to learn how the founder of the war on drugs stalked and helped to kill her. From a Jewish doctor who was smuggled out of the Budapest ghetto as a baby, only to unlock the secrets of addiction as a grown man. From a transsexual crack dealer in Brooklyn who was conceived when his mother, a crack-addict, was raped by his father, an NYPD officer. From a man who was kept at the bottom of a well for two years by a torturing dictatorship, only to emerge to be elected President of Uruguay and to begin the last days of the war on drugs.
