Fed Up!

Discussion in 'Marijuana Legalization' started by pyro2005, Jul 17, 2003.

  1. I'm always sending letters to my congressmen about all aspects of marijuana, from decriminalization to medical use, and all I get back is bullshit. Supposedly they never heard of any substantial studies where marijuana was the answer, no matter what I send them. Here is my most recent letter back.

    Mr. Mike Hernandez

    Dear Mr. Hernandez:

    Thank you for contacting me regarding the medicinal use of marijuana. It
    was good to hear from you.

    The bill you mentioned in your letter, H.R. 2592, was introduced by
    Representative Barney Frank (D-MA). This legislation provides for the
    medical use of marijuana in accordance with the laws of the various
    States. Further, this bill transfers marijuana from schedule I to
    schedule II of the Controlled Substances Act. Therefore, in a State in
    which marijuana may be prescribed or recommended by a physician for
    medical use under applicable State law, no provision of the Controlled
    Substances Act shall prohibit or otherwise restrict: the prescription or
    recommendation of marijuana by a physician for medical use; an individual
    from obtaining and using marijuana from a physician's prescription or
    recommendation of marijuana for medical use; or a pharmacy from obtaining
    and holding marijuana for the prescription or recommendation of marijuana
    by a physician for medical use under applicable State law. This bill has
    been referred to the House Subcommittee on Health.

    As for my views on the issue of medical marijuana, I am aware of reports
    that marijuana may provide therapeutic relief for individuals with certain
    ailments who feel that their symptoms are unresponsive to conventional
    medical treatments. I am not, however, aware of any reputable studies
    which support this contention. I oppose legalizing a drug that many
    health professionals believe is associated with health risks that far
    exceed any possible therapeutic benefits.
    For more information on issues pending before the Senate, you can visit
    my web page at lieberman.senate.gov. Again, thank you for contacting me.
    Please continue to keep me informed of your various positions.

  2. My personal experience of many years/hundreds of letters ,tells me you should not have expected any more than you received. In fact in the majority of letters you send you will receive no reply or acknowledgement whatsoever.

    In fact I now recomend all American marijuana users 'perfect' their underground use/sources ,rather than writing to doctors ,lawyers ,and politicians as I have in the past as it is a total waste of time.

    I propose rather a border to border underground network of 'cells' to supply the never ending demand for reasonably priced ,quality marijuana.

    What I need is "quantity 'and' quality" - "out of the country" suppliers ,who are willing to take the risk ,and reap the rewards.

    Now if somebody wants to get behind something like that going ,I'm in.

    But don't waste any more of your time writing letters that ,in all truth ,will probably never even be read by the person you are sending them to.

    regards ,
  3. I have spent many hours, and written many letters myself, not as much as you, but i'm getting up there. I just want to try to spread the word as much as I can.

    But I think you are right; they never even are read by the intended people.

    I'll start writing to doctors and lawyers and others like you suggested.
  4. roach if i may say so you have a wonderful idea about the cells thing,although i fully dont understand,im pretty interested
