My, my, they do have some lovely graphs and charts. And some of their statistics look real technical. But I have to agree with Thunder, the sampling of the population is very narrow and as they say you have statistics, statistics and lies. And with Jan involved then we are all screwed.
With this National Cannabis Prevention and Information Centre, National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre. Cannabis is the big evil weed. They use stats to try prove this theory, then disseminate this theory to the community as fact. But the facts are actually missed due to the subjects sampled and yet unless you read the content fully this point is lost in the stats. Using their theory, if one man falls out of a tree and you sample him alone then 100% of participants fell out of a tree, now there goes a stat for ya Jan.
All intoxicants have side effects. Any withdrawal from any intoxicant will have an effect, noticable effect or otherwise. Drug companies know this as on the packets of many medications it states it.
The idea that designing a drug to manage the withdrawal from cannabis is just "swapping the witch, for the bitch". From experience many of these 'coming down' substances have a much more addictive quality than the gear you're trying to come down from. It is a very risky swapping from pot to pharmas, when the pharmas stop working and the person wants something different, many dont return to pot but often go higher up the pharma scale often because its medically approved. And this is laughable.
One question I have for Jan and co. Which drug companies are funding your research? Which companies will develope this new medication for the masses of cannabis druggies coming down?
There's only one way I get my 'greens'
and it ain't by eating them.
