COLUMBIA — Flanked by lawmakers, law enforcement officials and doctors in white lab coats, S.C. Attorney General Alan Wilson called marijuana “the most dangerous drug” in America while denouncing legislation Wednesday that would allow patients to obtain it with a doctor’s prescription.
Various speakers, which included State Law Enforcement Division Chief Mark Keel and leaders from the S.C. Medical Association, suggested the use of medical marijuana would cause a litany of problems in South Carolina: addiction, increased traffic accidents and — without specifically citing any peer-reviewed research — an increase in the number of overdose deaths.
I found this richly ironic...
“They use words like stoned, high, wasted, baked, fried, cooked, chonged, cheeched, dope-faced, blazed, blitzed, blunted, blasted, danked, stupid, wrecked — and that’s only half the words they use,” Wilson said. “Are these consistent with something that describes a medicine?”
Wilson classified marijuana as the most dangerous drug because he said it was “the most misunderstood drug.”
It really incenses me, and I mean that literally, to see such an intellectually dishonest comment.
Eddie, whom I've been friends with for over a decade, is in stage four fighting Parkinson's. I've never heard him use the phrase "I am going to get *cheeched* so these tremors will settle down." Or, my best friend saying, "instead of taking these opioids (percs) I'm going to get *wrecked* so I'm not in as much pain."
"The most dangerous drug in America." For goodness sake...stop already.
