Leading researcher: “At this point, I’d be in favor of legalization.” | 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 am sure the Gov would want to silence this report or anything that shows how much they have lied. I am sure that with this out that they will come up with a new lie. Why are they so stuck on this fight? Could it be that the industries are still afraid of loosing money if Hemp is legal?

    GOOD POINT, I DIDNT KNOW THAT. SO THE GOVERMENT MUST HAVE NO NEW RESEARCH OR THERE JUST GOING OFF THE OLD CRAP (RIGHT)

  36. herbalist973

    damn russ i guess the money couldnt cover this one up. now lets see how far the research goes…………………… :2thumb: :2thumb:

  37. kids

    Just one small point here- Dr. Tashkin is not a “government researcher”. He is a professor at UCLA who has received government grants, like >95% of academic medical researchers. It may well be that the agencies who funded his research wished to see grant applications for projects that sought to find harm in cannabis, and he may have tailored his applications to reflect that, but as with government grants to academic researchers he was perfectly free to publish as he saw fit. This is not necessarily so for the true “government’s own researchers” at the NIH, CDC, FDA, EPA, etc.
