SENSIBLE ADVICE, COMMON SENSE, NOT SENSATIONALIZED December 05, 2007 1:58 PM






“Marijuana,” said Dr. Eden, “is used for many reasons. Like many plants, it can be a medicine or a drug. It can heal pain, it helps some people relax, and it calms the stomach and helps many others eat when they need to.”

“Will it help me if I use it?” asked Jackie.

“No,” said the doctor. “Marijuana is for adults who can use it responsibly. It gives some people joy, but like many things, it can be used too much. I don’t recommend it for everyone. It is a strong medicine - not healthy for you right now. I know you understand that there are some things that are okay for an adult, but definitely not for children.”

There are those FASCISTS who would FORCIBLY remove this child from her parents...... December 05, 2007 7:28 PM






One night, Jackie woke up past her bedtime.

She smelled something funny in the air, so she walked down the hall to her parents’ bedroom.

WHY THIS BOOK IS IMPORTANT; AND POLITICAL IN THE BROADEST SENSE 

PLEASE CIRCULATE TRUE DRUG INFORMATION WIDELY.

This is NOT a "side issue", of importance only to hippies and people on the fringes of society.

DRUG DE-CRIMINALIZATION IS AN ESSENTIAL PART OF THE FIGHT TO REGAIN OUR FREEDOMS, CIVIL RIGHTS, AND ECONOMIC RIGHTS AS WELL.

THE DRUG WARS ARE AN ESSENTIAL PART OF THE PLAN TO REMOVE OUR FREEDOMS AND CIVIL RIGHTS, AND LEAVE US WEAK, HELPLESS, SICK, AFRAID, AND IN POVERTY. In other words, a population EASY TO CONTROL.

It is not some mysterious entity, some cabal of evildoers behind the scenes plotting Earth's doom. It is the CAPITALIST SYSTEM ITSELF. In the Capitalist System, evildoers RISE TO THE TOP because they are MORE SELFISH AND RUTHLESS than the rest of us.

We need a system of Co-operation and SHARING Earth's resources FAIRLY. Didn't you learn the advantages of CO-OPERATION and SHARING in Kindergarten? Like that best-selling book said?

Capitalism is not such a system. And present-day events are proving it more than ever before.

=================================

Children forever traumatized by being forcibly removed from their parents -- who have done nothing bad or immoral.

Patients suffering acute and recurring pain, sadistically deprived of medicine that keeps them functioning like human beings.

A whole generation of Black men locked up; women, too. Riding the busses as I do {I have no car}, I OFTEN hear on the busses some young {or older!} person say, "I just got out!"

Wealthy people like Rush Limbaugh getting away with their addictions; that destroy families in poorer neighborhoods.

And on and on it goes. The Drug Wars are something that affect all of us; whether we ever touch any drug, or not. Remember, "First, they came for the Jews?" Incarcerated drug users were poor, minority, "shiftless", marginalized members of society. Nobody wanted to stand up for them. {Middle-class white drug users weren't among the incarcerated, generally speaking.}

Now they ARE "coming for" the rest of us. We had better TAKE A STAND TOGETHER on THIS issue; where the  Capitalists think they have found our "weak point" where they can DIVIDE us effectively.

children's book March 31, 2010 9:00 PM

We really do need education like this for our children.

Mine came home from second and third grades one day telling me about a movie they had been shown at school. In the movie, the boy smoked pot and the drug monster came out from under his bed and possessed his body!! Children eventually find out what bullshit that is, and then many make the assumption that adults lied to them about all drugs.

"Marijuana is for adults who can use it responsibly. It gives some people joy, but like many things, it can be used too much. I don't recommend it for everyone. It is a strong medicine - not healthy for you right now. I know you understand that there are some things that are okay for an adult, but definitely not for children."

It gives me hope to see something that teaches a healthy, balanced view on the issue.

"Possessed by the Demon of Drugs" December 30, 2011 6:24 PM

This business of "possession" is SERIOUS, not JUST a "metaphor". With bigoted fundamentalist religions trying to increase their Political Power {including the Catholic Church}, "Demon-Possession" and EXORCISING DEMONS has become a Big Deal! For example, in some current religions GAY PEOPLE are FORCED to undergo humiliating and even dangerous "exorcism" of the "gay-sexuality-Demon". {!!!} Hardly seems like this could be possible in the 21st century! But it is!!! And speaking of religion and children's books, Richard Dawkins has just recently written a book FOR CHILDREN on "Atheism"! Good show! I just tried to find the name of it....... unsuccessfully. It gives Scientific answers and evidence. Good thing kids' books are getting REAL! One could expose kids to a book like this, and still give kids an understanding of Spirituality and Ethics and whatever in Religious Traditions seems valid to you..... No fear that a kid can't think for him/herself and make up their own minds.....

"The Magic of Reality: How We Know What's Really True" is the name of the book by Richard Dawkins on Evolution and Atheism. In it, he tells Myths from various religions as well as from the Bible. There is no fear that kids won't be able to make up their own minds about Spirituality, Ethics, various religious traditions of their ancestors, etc. -- they can be exposed to the TRUTH and it won't hurt them! It seems to me these two books telling TRUTH would be great for kids -- they get little enough of it in many Schools these days, what with the Bigots angling for more & more Political Influence!
