We have comments from Ron Paul supporters that compare laws against marijuana to prohibition against alcohol. These folks, and Ron Paul, fail to understand the trauma of modern drugs. The real sadness is that Ron Paul is a physician – and he seems to turn a blind eye to the problem of a pandemic illness sweeping our country.
Cocaine was first reduced to powder form in 1850. Opium was synthesized into Heroin in 1898. Methamphetamine was invented in 1919. Oxyconton, a synthetic heroin, was synthesized in the late 1990’s. These drugs have swept our country like a plague of locusts.
Alcohol and marijuana are referred to as ‘gateway’ drugs. For a physician to ignore the facts of addiction is deplorable. The drug addicts that write comments on this site are in a state of mind that confuses them – they cannot see the truth because their minds are addled with mood altering chemicals. On the right side of this page there is a category called On Addiction – please look here for further clarification. See On Addiction.
Go ahead – write comments – make my day.
