President Bush recently touted new survey results showing a modest drop in teen use of marijuana and other drugs, but he failed to mention the drug for which prevention efforts have had the most spectacular success -- tobacco. If he had, he might have had to make some troubling comparisons. Citing the results of the annual Monitoring the Future survey, Bush noted that drug use has declined from its recent peak in 1996, but sidestepped the longer-term picture that doesn't look nearly so rosy. If you go back 15 years, to 1992, drug use is up almost across the board. This contrasts sharply with the figures on adolescent cigarette use. While marijuana use is higher among all age groups than it was 15 years ago, cigarette smoking has dropped remarkably. The sharp drop in cigarette use is not attributable to changing attitudes about smoking. So what does this have to do with marijuana?

Decade-Long Scientific Studies: Medical Marijuana Works ​Next time someone tells you “There’s no reliable research” on medical marijuana, call BS. The results are in. Medical marijuana works. In a landmark report to the Legislature, the University of California Center for Medicinal Cannabis Research announced in 2010 that its studies have shown marijuana to have therapeutic value. CMCR researchers, in a decade-long project, found “reasonable evidence that cannabis is a promising treatment” for some specific, pain-related medical conditions. The findings were the first results in 20 years from clinical trials of smoked cannabis in the United States. “We focused on illnesses where current medical treatment does not provide adequate relief or coverage of symptoms,” said CMCR Director Igor Grant, M.D., executive vice-chair of the Department of Psychiatry at the UCSD School of Medicine.

The INCB is a quasi-judicial “control organ” for the implementation of the United Nations drug conventions. Mr. “Legalization of cannabis within these states would send wrong and confusing signals to youth and society in general, giving the false impression that drug abuse might be considered normal and even, most disturbingly, safe. Marijuana legalization is a classic states’ rights and federalist issue.
