Arizona shooter Loughner used marijuana… so what? (UPDATED WED) | The NORML Stash Blog

I am the producer of The NORML Network, the host of the NORML SHOW LIVE and The NORML Stash Blog, and NORML's Outreach Coordinator. I'm married, live in Portland, Oregon, and I am a registered medical marijuana caregiver in this state. I've worked days as an IT geek and nights as a professional musician. Previously, I have been the host of my own political talk radio show on satellite radio. I've been the High Times "Freedom Fighter of the Month" and I travel across the country to educate people on marijuana reform. I've dedicated my life to bringing an end to adult marijuana prohibition and re-legalizing cannabis hemp, and I'm honored to be chosen by NORML to give voice to the Marijuana Nation and to speak for those who can't speak up.

    Hello to every , for the reason that I am in fact keen of reading this website’s post to be updated on a regular basis. It includes pleasant material.|

    I blame Obama for bringing a gun to a knife fight. And that is no joke. It is sarcasm.

    Seriously folks – like it or not we are going to need rather more than a few Republicans on our side if we are going to end prohibition. Republicans like Glenn Beck

    The reason cannabis and mental illiness are mentioned together is because cannabis is actually effective relief from symptoms caused by mental illness :-D

    Holy Smokes. It was almost predictable. The crazy idea that smoking pot will make you a drug crazed killer. This kid (Young Adult) has serious mental problems. The prohibitionists will have this one in the reefer madness story for years to come. It may be he may have taken aspirin or drank beer. Many people who have commited serious crimes have ingested aspirin or drank beer. But, I think the kid (Young Adult) was, is and will remain a person with serious mental health issues. There is no excuse for his actions. He should be punished. Blessings to all the victums and their famlies. This was a horrible crime.

    marijuana is a drug, a mind altering drug, it it were not, nobody would smoke it!! People smoke it to escape thinking and life. It definitely is hazardous to your health and is not good for any medical reason. If you are suffering with cancer, pot is not the answer, it will only ensure you die from cancer as pot smoking causes cancer – more carcinogens in pot than cigs – just because its natural (and most is treated) does not mean its harmless!! That is a stupid argument some potters use, well god would not have made it if we are not supposed to smoke it – you can smoke any herb out there it does not mean you should!!! I have been a pot smoker in the past and can admit how it fucks you up big time – you lose feelings emotions you become a zombie, not caring about others or yourself or life in general – when you quit as i have done, it is amazing how much you come to enjoy life and yourself and your abilities – every heavy pot smoker i know has a serious anger and attitude issue, they have no pride in how they look, they have no motivation, they are slobs and lazy and just plain boring and yes it does cause outbursts

    WTF? People with mental illness shouldnt use cannabis? Sounds to me like mental illness isnt good for the movement. Cannabis has been proven to help some types of mental illness. Maybe the headline should have said people with mental illness shouldnt be allowed to own firearms. Now that I can understand.

    Was there not a report of alcohol poisoning in 2006? There was also a statement I read that he was never the same after that incident… this could be here-say but many must have read the same. My condolences to the victims.

    The propaganda corporate media will spin this to push more incarceration and lies. Thanks for another wonderful article to counter this prison – industry complex fear-mongering.

    A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

    Let us not forget people South of the border have no such protections and as informed citizens we know the difference in body counts between the two sides.

    OMG sure he smoked a joint just like the 104million citizens that ever have, but how come we dont have 104million shooters running around? Crazy is crazy, crazy on pot is still crazy so your point is? Its simple for everyone to see , hate speech and misinformation caused this and it will continue to cause this hate and violence until everyone in this country wakes up, gets the truth and if need be takes a few hits off a joint to calm down a bit.

    Gee might as well say Godzilla movies did this, makes more since than marijuana!
