January 1, 2014, should be remembered as the day that legalized the doping of the American mind. But it’s hard to tell how many Colorado residents, where “recreational” use of marijuana becomes legal at the stroke of midnight, will be able to remember the day because their “memory-related structure will shrivel and collapse.”
Memory loss is but one effect caused by frequent marijuana use, as proven by researchers at Northwestern University. The study also found “evidence of brain alterations … significant deterioration in the thalamus, a key structure for learning, memory and communications between brain regions.” If this were not enough, the study concluded, “chronic marijuana use could boost the underlying process driving schizophrenia.
This study is the latest to document scientifically the devastating long term harm caused by marijuana use. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), “marijuana smoke contains 50% to 70% more carcinogenic hydrocarbons than does tobacco smoke … which further increases the lungs’ exposure to carcinogenic smoke.” Moreover, “marijuana users have a 4.8-fold increase in the risk of heart attack in the first hour after smoking the drug. … This risk may be greater in aging populations or those with cardiac vulnerabilities.”
In addition, marijuana use (whether obtained legally or not) causes “distorted perceptions, impaired coordination, difficulty in thinking and problem solving, and problems with learning and memory,” lasting weeks after the initial use. “As a result, someone who smokes marijuana every day may be functioning at a suboptimal intellectual level all of the time.” In conclusion: “Research clearly demonstrates that marijuana has the potential to cause problems in daily life or make a person’s existing problems worse. In fact, heavy marijuana users generally report lower life satisfaction, poorer mental and physical health, relationship problems, and less academic and career success compared to their peers who came from similar backgrounds. For example, marijuana use is associated with a higher likelihood of dropping out from school. Several studies also associate workers’ marijuana smoking with increased absences, tardiness, accidents, workers’ compensation claims, and job turnover.”
The impresario who staged the unfolding scenario of how best to dope the American mind is George Soros.
His first foray into U.S. domestic politics began in earnest in 1993, after he allegedly made $1-$3 billion “raiding the Bank of England.” Soros launched his drug-legalization crusade declaring, “The war on drugs is doing more harm to our society than drug abuse itself;” and he proceeded with “checkbook advocacy” through his Open Society Institute (OSI). He started by giving some $15 million to establish and fund several pro-drug-legalization organizations. Since then, Soros, whose motto is, “If I spend enough, I make it right,” has been funding campaigns for drug legalization and “medical marijuana,” which is described as a “compassionate drug.”
On February 7, 1996, I opined in The Wall Street Journal that Soros’s “sponsorship unified the movement to legalize drugs and gave it the respectability and credibility it lacked.” I suggested that unchallenged, Soros would change the political landscape of America. It took 20 years and lots of his money to achieve what he set out to get. For him, legalizing marijuana was a necessary stepping-stone to advancing drug policies in the U.S. and elsewhere toward legalizing the use of all drugs.
Pretending to support an “open society,” Soros has been working diligently to advance the greatest slavery ever–drug addiction.
Making money is but one of the many possible speculations on Soros’s motivation to legalize drugs. If asked, he’ll respond with gibberish that makes no sense. However, the revenues from the illegal drug trade are enormous. There are no other commodities on the market that yield such high and fast a return. In 2014, legally listed marijuana producing and distributing companies will generate huge revenues. Soros seems to believe that state-controlled drug distribution will best serve to increase dependency on the state, while controlling the doping. Indeed, moving in that direction, Soros’s emissaries “made history” on December 10, 2013, making Uruguay “the first country in the world to establish a legal, government-controlled marijuana market.”
It has to be emphasized here that legalizing marijuana as a “medicinal” and “recreational” drug in various U.S. states effectively renders the federal law that criminalizes it null and void.
An August 29, 2013, a Department of Justice memo clarified the government’s prosecutorial priorities and stated that the federal government would rely on state and local law enforcement to “address marijuana activity through enforcement of their own narcotics laws.”
A good example of how this works is the TSA announcement that beginning January 1, 2014, there will be no drug-smelling dogs in Colorado airports, even though these dogs are usually trained to smell also heroine, ecstasy, cocaine, peyote, crystal meth, and more. Was this statement anything other than an open invitation to carry/transport these drugs also?
Given all of the above, it seems that the Obama administration’s efforts to hook Americans on the opiates of social welfare (food stamps, government health care, a greater share of the wealth through minimum wage increases, public housing, free cell phones, and other services) is now extending to allowing the use of and facilitating addiction to mind-altering drugs. Marijuana today, opiates, and the rest, tomorrow.
What better way to assure a large number of dependent, ready-to-oblige voters? Unlike drug-free citizens who maintain their potential to think independently and even protest to demand this or that, the large numbers of new drug addicts with compromised brain functions will be ready to do anything to get their next drug supply.
This is real, and this will be coming soon to your neigborhood.
New Year’s 2014 should be remembered as the year in which the Obama administration moved one step closer to obscuring the memory of many unhappy duped Americans by making dope so easy to obtain and use.
Give him drugs and give him candy
Anything to make him think he’s happy
And he won’t ever come for us
And he won’t ever come.
