The Obama Administration has made clear that science and research – not politics – should determine what is safe and effective medicine.
And, of course, he just can’t resist throwing out completely irrelevant treatment numbers.
… 150,000 people who showed up voluntarily at treatment facilities in 2009 reported marijuana as their primary substance of abuse.
The volunteerism of 149,999 of those had to do with choice.
“Either you show up at treatment, or you’re out of this house buster.”
“Either you go to treatment or you go to jail.”
“Either you sign up for treatment now, or the judge isn’t going to look at your case as favorably when you show up at court.”
The 150,000th person thought it would be a good place to pick up chicks.
