Help needed for upcoming legalisation debate.

Discussion in 'Marijuana Legalization' started by cooliorokerij, May 8, 2011.

  1. Following the legalisation march in my hometown yesterday I have been embroiled in an online debate with a local politician. He is an idiot and he proved it (one of his arguments was that cannabis use causes paedophilia!). I have since (smelling blood) invited him to a live pubic debate on the issue. He is slow to respond but I'm sure he is arrogant and ignorant enough to accept if I push him.

    Based on this debate I know I could destroy the little weasel on my own but would appreciate some help from other enlightened people. Can you post in this thread any scientific research, fact based evidence, eg legal etc that can support my argument. Cannabis legalisation has been held off the political agenda by these imbeciles for too long. I genuinely believe that if I can get this guy to debate that I may get some media attention because of it and I can take the fight further.

  2. The test they used to determine that "THC kills brain cells" was conducted on Monkeys where they would strap a gas mask to the monkeys and force them to inhale THC for 5 minutes every day for a month before the monkeys died. However, the thing you don't hear about is that they didn't include Oxygen when they forced monkeys to inhale.

    Essentially, they suffocated the monkeys over the course of a month and noticed the brain cells were dead. (The first thing that goes when you suffocate is your brain cells.) They then declared the THC killed the monkeys and that Marijuana kills brain cells.

    Urgently needed facts:
    A resent study, Mortality Within the First 2 Years in Infants Exposed to Cocaine, Opiate, or Cannabinoid During Gestation - A total of 2,964 infants were drug-tested at birth to see if they were positive for drugs - cocaine, opiates and cannabis were studied and compared to drug free infants. During the first two years of their lives, 44 babies from the original group died. The death rates were :
    "No drugs at birth" deaths....... 15.7 deaths per 1000 live births

    "Cocaine positive" deaths.......17.7 deaths per 1000 live births

    "Opiate positive" deaths.......18.4 deaths per 1000 live births

    "Cannabis positive" deaths.... 8.9 deaths per 1000 live births

    The "cannabis positive" infants rate of death is almost half of what the "No drugs" infants death rate is! When it comes to failure to thrive, cannabis shows a significant improvement in the outcome.

    A 2006 report from the Pediatrics Department at Vanderbilt University characterized endocannabinoids as "an emerging concept in female reproduction." They found a "cannabinoid sensor" mechanism to influence crucial steps during early pregnancy. The endocannabinoid system actually modulates the stress to the woman's body. The Vanderbilt research termed the "endocannabinoid signaling in pre-implantation embryo development and activation." They found the endocannabinoid anandamide, is necessary for a fertilized egg to attached to the lining of the uterus using CB1 receptors that are on the fertilized egg. The conclusion was that throughout pregnancy and during nursing the endocannabinoid system delivers relief and neuroprotection to mother, fetus, and baby.

    Good luck, let us know how it goes!
