Official-Looking Anti-Marijuana Document Proves…Nothing

In response to this nonsense, as seen on /r/trees:

Like most government propaganda, a lot of what Wikipedia calls “weasel words” and other techniques of stretching the truth and intimating things without actually lying 100% of the time, which would be too obvious.

Actually, learning how these things are done — especially easy to do on a topic you know intimately — is a very good way to learn how marketers and politicians and corporations fool most of the people most of the time. In college, I studied communications and statistics…a very deadly combination for this kind of stuff. I coulda been a very effective evil person, but I swore only to use my powers for good…and so I’m planning to dedicate a great portion of my life to passing Prop 19, beginning September 1.

Look out world!

About Old Hippie

http://gplus.to/OldHippie Old Hippie is a father of two boys and thankfully living in California where all this kind of thing is legal. He started smoking marijuana in 1967 in high school, experimented with mind-expanding drugs of all kinds, and then straightened out 15 or so years later to become an airplane pilot. After being diagnosed with depression in 2000, he lost his job and most of the following decade to prescription medications (such as antidepressants) which sapped his energy and will. Finally, a chance conversation with a friend led to a doctor’s recommendation for medical marijuana (MMJ). This changed his entire life, health, and outlook for the better. BeyondChronic.com is his continuing story. It’s also his way to provide experienced advice on using medical marijuana effectively and responsibly, as well as advocacy, activism, and support for others. Old Hippie teaches about safe use of cannabis edibles, Canna Caps, vaporizers, dosing, and even microdosing.
