Homeland Security Secretary Chertoff on Legalization: “It won’t work” | 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.

    I’d love to see some scientific evidence of what you say. I heard the documents are hidden in a trunk at the bottom of the fountain of youth.

    Aphoric, March 17, 2009, states, among other things that “If the doctor gives you medicine that makes your condition worse, it would be malpractice if he simply increased the dose and ignored science and facts.” This is the one truth that Aphoric has uttered. Marijuana, for so-called medical use or otherwise, is very damaging to those who use it — read the proof of this, which is quite universal. Our society world wide is in decline, and recreational drug use is highly significant in this decline, and will become increasingly so if the drug promoters prevail.

    Well Mr. Chertoff, we have tried your approach for the better part of a century. The result is not simply failure, but the opposite of your desired effect. When you take failure to a whole new level, you admit your mistakes and step aside. You do not know what works or does not work. Time for new ideas and new action. If the doctor gives you medicine that makes your condition worse, it would be malpractice if he simply increased the dose and ignored science and facts. Your brand of political malpractice sickens us all, it dilutes freedom and is a cancer of our democracy.
