Do medical marijuana laws promote illicit cannabis use and disorder? — ScienceDaily BULLSHIT ALERT

Posted: April 27, 2017 in Uncategorized

Illicit cannabis use and cannabis use disorders increased at a greater rate in states that passed medical marijuana laws than in other states, according to latest research. The new study is among the first to analyze the differences in cannabis use and cannabis use disorders before and after states passed medical marijuana laws, as well as differentiate between earlier and more recent periods and additionally examine selected states separately.

Big Pharma is at it again, with such scary headlines and implications that laws make us use intoxicants– FAKE SCIENCE.  OMG, alcohol is legal in the U.S., therefore we must all drink.  It is rare that a law prevents people from using intoxicants or other things that they want.  Murder is against the law, yet people commit it.  Heroin, methamphetamine, and opiates are ubiquitous, yet illegal.  And so on.

Further, laws tend to keep people in the closets, not advertising the fact that they are users of a banned substance, yet if/when legal, they may freely talk about it and answer surveys more honestly.

All this paper tells us is that people are more open about cannabis use where it is legal.  Duh!  And what IF more people indulged in something legal; is that bad thing?  That more people drink when a dry county legalizes alcohol sales?  Oh my goodness.

These and other BS headlines and scare stories should prompt intelligent people to think about the message, look around and see how truthful it may be, and scrutinize it.  We hear the term “fake news” that spins meaning where there is none, that sensationalizes, distorts, and manipulates us into believing something other than the pure truth.  Well, this is fake science, in the same vein.
