Meet your new surgeon generals.
The Left has been trying to undo the noble legacy of Ronald Reagan even before He left office. Celebrated pot-smoker/adulterer Bill Clinton left our Shining City on the Hill much like he left the White House, a garbage-strewn wreck, and I shudder to think what that harridan wife of his intends to do for an encore. Maybe it's fond memories of the countless hours they spent dropping acid and watching water boil on the stove, but the War on Drugs has long been liberals' favorite subject for besmirching the hallowed name of President Reagan. Knowing that Our Nation enjoys continence and sobriety drives them to levels of unhinged derangement that make the Code Pink lezzies look like a Carmelite high school debate squad, and the arguments they make in favor of the War on Drugs' dismantling (that criminal sentences are racially unfair, that rehab works better than incarceration, that it's a total waste of money) only make sense if you're high. Just when you think they've given you the most ludicrous reasons imaginable to revisit Our Nation's drug policy, they manage to outdo themselves:
Certain marijuana components may suppress the tumors of highly invasive cancers, a new study finds.What were these people smoking at their liberal university when they came up with this study? It has long been established that marijuana is so highly addictive that one hit can will make you quit your job, leave your family, and begin panhandling to support your habit, and to advocate that cancer patients tune in, turn on, and drop out is the height of irresponsibility... though not entirely surprising.
In laboratory tests, cannabinoids, the active components in marijuana, were found to slow the spread of lung and cervical cancer tumors, according to researchers Robert Ramer and Burkhard Hinz of the University of Rostock in Germany.
Proponents of medical marijuana believe that cannabinoids reduce the side effects of cancer treatment, such as pain, weight loss and vomiting.
The study, published in the Jan. 2 issue of the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, finds that the compounds may also have an anticancer effect; however, more research is needed to determine whether the laboratory results will hold true in humans, the authors wrote.
When I read things like this, I can't help but suspect that "science" -- the same shady outfit that's trying to tell us that global warming is real & homosexuality is inborn -- is trying to pull another fast one on us American citizens. Keep marijuana away from the terminally ill and where it belongs, in the hands of criminals. Praise Him!
