Cannabis reduces symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder in an open study

emery myers:

PTSD is very effectively treated with Cannabis!

Originally posted on Cannabis Patients Alliance:

ptsd1 Cannabis is associated with reductions in symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in some patients. This is the result of a chart review of 80 patients with PTSD using cannabis according to the medical cannabis law of New Mexico. This analysis is published in the Journal of Psychoactive Drugs by Dr. George Greer from Santa Fe and collegues from the University of California in Los Angeles and San Diego. New Mexico was the first state to accept PTSD as a condition for the use of medical cannabis.

The purpose of the study was to statistically analyze data on PTSD symptoms in patients applying to the New Mexico Medical Cannabis Program from 2009 to 2011. The Clinician Administered Posttraumatic Scale for DSM-IV (CAPS) was administered. Greater than 75% reduction in CAPS symptom scores were reported when patients were using cannabis compared to when they were not.

The 40-Year-War-On-Drugs in America and the Millions of Casualties Started by a Corrupt President Nixon!

The Early Stages of Drug Prohibition. A short History.

Why are some drugs legal and other drugs illegal today? It’s not based on any scientific assessment of the relative risks of these drugs – but it has everything to do with who is associated with these drugs. It is, of course, directly related to money and lots of it in the “legal” pharmaceutical business.

The first anti-opium laws in the 1870s were directed at Chinese immigrants. The first anti-cocaine laws, in the South in the early 1900s, were directed at black men. The first anti-marijuana laws, in the Midwest and the Southwest in the 1910s and 20s, were directed at Mexican migrants and Mexican Americans. Today, Latino and especially black communities are still subject to wildly disproportionate drug enforcement and sentencing practices.

Make no mistake. This “War on Drugs” was started by an admitted homophobic and racist, republican president, with very antiquated ideals… Nixon! That should be enough right there to end the war! He would have been impeached if he didn’t resign. He was a corrupt crook. Every American knows this. His era has gone and past but his WAR still remains. Why?

I ask one simple question… Has it been worth the cost to America and American families? Drug use has increased with the advent of the War on Drugs and so has incarceration, drastically so. When will we reform these very antiquated laws and start building a better future for our children? The money saved could build schools, strengthen infrastructure and educate our children on the dangerous of drugs (including legal, pharmaceuticals). So many changes and upgrades to infrastructure here in the U.S. as well as a strong educational system with the savings from incarceration. #EducationNotIncarceration

Looks like drug use and the spending on drug use has some discrepencies. This is more legitimate proof this war has deep roots in money! Whose money? You know the government has something to do with it!

Are we winning yet? I’m asking anyone that knows…are we winning the War on Drugs? It’s being fought right now, as we speak. The U.S. government is spending hundreds of millions of dollars to keep the war going on and on, it seems. The U.S. government is spending even more to incarcerate non-violent substance users. Just ask the thousands of people who have lost family and friends to the War on Drugs. The education our children get in public schools amounts to a couple of antiquated videos per year on drugs. They learn nothing about the dangers and the truth about this hidden war.

Police brutality video here: Make sure you watch this to see what is happening every day of every week of every year due to the War on Drugs.

Incarceration rates, murder rates, police brutality… all are on the rise with this war started by our most unpopular president ever… President Richard Nixon! The statistics get worse every year. Policy HAS to change. If it doesn’t, we know why. Over 1,000,000 Black Americans are not allowed to vote due to felony records of non-violent use of marijuana. I’m sure the GOP doesn’t mind this at all! Is this one reason? To suppress votes that could change power in the government? One has to ask since Black Americans are profiled and targeted unjustly so.
So let me ask you again… Are we, the U.S., winning the War on Drugs? Source: United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime.

Most of these deaths are from prescription drug overdoses. America is brainwashed into thinking illicit drugs are the big killers but the Pharmaceutical companies produce some of the most dangerous drugs known to the world! Lets not forget that over 10,000 people, mostly innocent victims, are dying in our neighboring nation of Mexico. We spend so much on a fence to divide our nations and it has done NO good. We still have tons of illegal drugs coming into our country.

Ever since President Nixon started the travesty and human-rights- violation known as the “War on Drugs”, Black Americans have suffered the most. The statistics don’t lie. Black Americans are incarcerated at MUCH higher levels for the same crime of non-violent substance abuse. 1 in 3 Black American Men will be imprisoned while 1 in 17 White American Men will be imprisoned for non-violent substance use. #educatenotincarcerate

These numbers aren’t from a made up meme. These numbers are real! These are statistics from our own government. It strikes me as a horrific injustice to our diverse population. Why are Black Americans profiled and arrested for crimes so much more often than White Americans. White Americans are a majority, yet the minority is serving the prison terms. Some, if not many, serve more time than murders, child molesters and rapists. Again, these are non-violent substance users. Does this make any sense to you?

You can decide for yourself. Whites, the majority, are out-numbered by the minorities in the Prison system. This is NOT because white Americans use drugs less, in fact, the rate of use for all illicit drugs is very similar in the different ethnic groups. Profiling and racism are alive and well in the 21st century.

The same racial issues exist now, decades and decades later…well into the 21st century. People’s lives and their families’ lives are being ruined by this unjust, racist, human rights travesty known only as Nixon’s “War on Drugs”.

Why isn’t this a priority of the U.S. government? Why do we have privatized prison systems in the U.S. that have stock traded openly on our market? We know why. This is business. It doesn’t stop people from using and in fact, the drugs are in the prison system as well, so why do we keep repeating this insanity. The answer we all know… MONEY! The U.S. is all about the 1% and MONEY! Money is worshipped more than any other deity in the world here in America. Without money, we have no voice. We have no political power.

The only way we have a voice, is if we actively petition and educate our fellow Americans. Please take the time to sign this petition to End the War on Drugs and allow the compassionate use of Cannabis for Americans! Please click on the button below and make your AMERICAN VOICE HEARD!

I am an honorably discharged veteran of Desert Storm and the Marine Corps. In the Marines, we put color aside. We were either dark green or light green Marines… no black, no white or otherwise. We were brothers that had each other’s backs. I need all Americans to have each others backs in this all important issue.

We have to come together on this issue. It is not only a human rights issue, but it is costing millions of dollars and not accomplishing the reduction in drug use. Our country holds this hypocritical ideal that prescribed, dangerous medications are safe when in fact, they kill more Americans every year than all illicit drugs combined. It’s the great lie. It’s all about the money. Help end this 40-year-travesty.

Sobering to say the least. America has always been at war, even with its own people. Time to stop this injustice. It’s up to us as Americans to contact our elected officials, petition and peacefully protest this human rights travesty!

Rich people don’t go to prison for these things…only the poor and the Americans of diverse cultural backgrounds!

President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder Make Progress on the Human Rights Violation Known as the “War on Drugs”.

Written by Emery Myers

April 21, 2014

Current “War on Drugs” News.

State and Federal Prison Population 1925 – 2010. Do you see the cause? The rise started when Nixon’s “war on drugs” started. These are the brutal facts.

Do you see when the rise in incarceration began in the United States? The United States has five percent of the world’s population but incarcerates 25% of the WHOLE WORLD’s prison population!

There are people serving life sentences for first time offenses for marijuana possession in the United States. These are non-violent first offenders sentenced to life by Mandatory Minimum Sentences. President Barack Obama and Eric Holder are working on changing this 40 year nightmare, which has disproportionately affected our Black American population and the poor population. Rich, white guys don’t go to prison. Just look at politician Trey Radel (click on his name to get the full, recent story). I really encourage you to click on politician Trey Radel’s short story to see how corrupt the whole “war on drugs” really is. This just proves my point that rich, influential white guys don’t go to prison!

These states represent ALL states across the nation. How can we say the war on drugs is working? HOW? #educationNotincarceration

I have looked at many statistics. I have looked at many studies. They all point to the same human-rights violations agains Black Americans and the Poor. These people are suffering in prison! I’m not talking about violent offenders. The reality is, the majority of non-violent offenders are in prisons for drug related complications. They are being imprisoned for substance use or abuse. This is how we take care of these Americans in our country! It has to stop. We can no longer support these human rights violations. We can no longer imprison non-violent drug offenders. Some people really are doing life for a plant…marijuana. If you don’t believe me, click   HERE FOR FACTS.

Today, President Obama and Attorney General, As part of a new initiative, President Obama plans to step up the number of nonviolent drug officers he considers for clemency.

Mr. Obama with Attorney General Eric Holder by his side, “has asked the Justice Department to set up a process to ensure that anyone who has a good case for commutation has their application seen and evaluated,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said Monday.

U.S. spending on the failed, human rights travesty known as the "War on Drugs" started by one of our most corrupt Presidents...President Nixon.
U.S. spending on the failed, human rights travesty known as the “War on Drugs” started by one of our most corrupt Presidents…President Nixon.

So instead of strong education to prevent drug abuse, which does work for our future generations, we are spending more and more to incarcerate the minorities and the poor. What is going on here?

Colorado is planning on a 40,000,000.00 tax revenue infusion into the state’s education system out of the projected 100,000,000 million dollars in legal marijuana tax revenue this year. The legalization has actually decreased crime and is making a LOT of tax revenue for the state of Colorado without having to increase income taxes and burden the middle-class and poor even more. Sad fact! 49,000,000 Americans don’t know where their next meal will come from in the U.S.A. today! Paul Ryans budget plans to all but make the “takers” extinct in America!

Prohibition Still Doesn't Work!

Majority of Law Enforcement Officers Want to Reform Marijuana Laws.

Prohibition Still Doesn't Work!
Prohibition Still Doesn’t Work! Never did and never will. Education NOT incarceration! #EducationNotIncarceration

survey released this week by the publication Law Officer revealed that a majority of law enforcement officers want to see our country’s marijuana laws reformed.

The poll, which questioned over 11,000 law enforcement officers regarding their opinions on drug policy, revealed that just over 64% believed our marijuana laws needed to be relaxed in some form. When asked “Do you believe possession of marijuana for personal use should…” and presented with several options, 35.68% of respondents stated that marijuana be legalized, regulated and taxed, 10.84% chose that it should be be legalized for medical reasons and with a doctor’s prescription only, 14.24% said it should continue to be illegal but only punished via fines (no incarceration), and 3.68% said marijuana should simply be decriminalized. Only 34.7% believed marijuana should continue to be illegal with the criminal penalties that are currently in place.

“This poll reveals that support for marijuana prohibition is eroding even amongst those who are serving on the front lines enforcing it,” stated NORML Communications Director Erik Altieri, “When a majority of the American people and most of those tasked with implementing a law disagree with it in principle, it is time to change that law.”

You can view the full results of this survey here.

“Prohibition cannot be enforced for the simple reason that the majority of the American people do not want it enforced and are resisting its enforcement. That being so, the orderly thing to do under our form of government is to abolish a law that cannot be enforced, a law which the people of the country do not want enforced.” – New York Mayor Fiorello La Guardia on alcohol prohibition.

Study: Enactment Of Medical Cannabis Laws Not Associated With Higher Crime Rates.

Marijuana Myths and Facts.
Marijuana Myths and Facts.

The enactment of medicinal cannabis laws is not associated with any rise in statewide criminal activity and may even be related to reductions in incidences of violent crime, according to data published online in the journal PLoS ONE.

Researchers at the University of Texas at Dallas tracked crime rates across all 50 states between the years between 1990 and 2006, a time period during which 11 states legalized marijuana for medical use. Authors reviewed FBI data to determine whether there existed any association between the passage of medicinal cannabis laws and varying rates of statewide criminal activity, specifically reported crimes of homicide, rape, robbery, assault, burglary, larceny, and auto theft.

Investigators reported that the passage of medical marijuana laws was not associated with an increase in any of the seven crime types assessed, but that liberalized laws were associated with decreases in certain types of violent crime.

“The central finding gleaned from the present study was that MML (medical marijuana legalization) is not predictive of higher crime rates and may be related to reductions in rates of homicide and assault,” authors reported. “Interestingly, robbery and burglary rates were unaffected by medicinal marijuana legislation, which runs counter to the claim that dispensaries and grow houses lead to an increase in victimization due to the opportunity structures linked to the amount of drugs and cash that are present. Although, this is in line with prior research suggesting that medical marijuana dispensaries may actually reduce crime in the immediate vicinity.”

Researchers concluded: “Medical marijuana laws were not found to have a crime exacerbating effect on any of the seven crime types. On the contrary, our findings indicated that MML precedes a reduction in homicide and assault. … In sum, these findings run counter to arguments suggesting the legalization of marijuana for medical purposes poses a danger to public health in terms of exposure to violent crime and property crimes.”

Are we all deluded? America, Politics and the Racist, 40 year war on Drugs(the poor).

Deluded… Delusional… Are we all simply deluded? Were we programmed from birth, by pre-formatted parents? Were our grandparents and their parents beliefs, morals and ideals forged from governmental guidelines and religious rules?

2.Psychiatry. maintaining fixed false beliefs even when   confronted with facts, usually as a result of mental illnessHe was so delusional and paranoid that he thought  everybody was conspiring against him.

Sounds far-fetched, I know. Just the title screams “conspiracy theory” without making a sound! I think many of us can relate to the thin line between delusion and reality! This is the space that is widening for middle-class Americans. Our country is now the ultra rich and the poor. There is a war on the poor happening in America right now.

Forty years ago, President Nixon started the “War on Drugs”. We know this war has only been effective in destroying the lives of the poor. We know this war has been a racist war on the poor as well, affecting people of Color, disproportionately so from Caucasians.
40 years of the war on drugs and our government is still waging a racist war on the poor. This is fact. Look at the statistics. The statistics are black and white! Click on the image to view full size image. Image courtesy of Google Images.

This war has affected the poor and people of color more than any other group in the U.S. Please see the informative graph below. It simply explains the racism involved in this broken, immoral war that has been going on for 40 years. It is time to end this racism and incarceration. We need education not incarceration for drug abuse and non-violent drug offenders. #educatenotincarcerate
Incarceration rates in the United States by race. This accurate graph indicates the racism involved in our broken War on Drugs started by President Nixon 40 years ago. Countless Americans have had their lives ruined over this war.

Recently, a man in a southern state, was sentenced to 13 years in prison, with 5 of those years being hard labor for possession of 2 marijuana cigarettes. Mandatory minimum sentences are killing families in America.

NEW ORLEANS—The Drug Policy Alliance filed an amicus brief today urging the Louisiana Supreme Court to review the egregious prison sentence of Bernard Noble, a 48-year old man who was sentenced to 13.3 years of hard labor in prison without the opportunity for parole for possessing the equivalent of two marijuana cigarettes.”

Americans, it is time to end this horrible, human-rights violation, called the War on Drugs. This war has proved to be a racist war that has actually increased the amount of illicit drugs used and has caused the destruction of millions of families over 40 years. The War on Drugs has not protected people. It has been a huge waste of money, resources and life. Thousands upon thousands of Americans and others in surrounding countries have been killed by cartels, law enforcement and black market drug deals and it is all linked back to the terrible, failed War on Drugs! Let’s also not forget all those police officers killed in the line of duty and the innocent victims of the war on drugs.

It is early in Colorado’s legalization movement, but so far, crime rates have gone down substantially and the state’s tax revenues from legal marijuana are in the millions of dollars. This is a win/win situation so far for Colorado. Take away the demand by decriminalizing, regulating, taxing and educating citizens on marijuana and the benefits and dangers. Anything in excess is bad, whether it be alcohol or allergy medication.

Please add your name to the petition below by clicking on the icon and sign the petition to end the prohibition on Marijuana. It is time to take this first step. 13 years in prison for 1 or 2 grams of a natural plant? This is real, click the link above for the news story. this just happened! The man charged with this will be over 60 years old when he gets out of prison, if he gets out of prison. His family life, his job, his everything is gone because of 2 little cigarettes of marijuana… for his own personal use. He wasn’t doing anything violent or assaulting anyone. He was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Now his life is ruined for the time being. Also, tax-payers will be paying for 13 years of his life in prison for 2 marijuana joints! This is insane. End the police state that we all live in!

Please, if you have empathy for your fellow Americans, help end the suffering from this immoral, human rights travesty called the War on Drugs!
