LETTER FROM THE EDITOR
Drugged Driving: Putting Science In Prison
by Jason Lauve
You can't hide driving under the influenc of cannabis
I just completed a 30 day trial of daily dosages of over 1.2g of Cannabis oil a day and I am now convinced that THC metabolites do mitigate the effects of THC. Colorado just started a Drugged Driving Is Impaired Driving campaign that is completely propagandist. To infer that someone had an accident because they have Cannabis in their system does not mean it caused the accident; it is absurd to think that way. Look at the science and stop profiling us.
What ever happened to teaching people to take responsibility
for themselves? I would never drive : if I was impaired, but to tell me 11 am impaired because I am using Cannabis is an insult. Give me a driving test and you will see. I have police follow me everywhere, as I have Cannabis all over my Jeep, and I have not been pulled over for impaired driving, in fact I would like to be tested and take this to court. These attacks are an insult to us as Cannabis patients and people.
This campaign may target all drugs, but 90% of this demographic are Cannabis consumers. I support going after people driving on Ambian and a few other pharmaceuticals.
I lost a friend in Louisville, Colorado to a woman taking pharmaceuticals who drove 50' off the road striking John. As a patient if I see these prejudicial posters in a dispensary, I share it will all I can, because those that support this campaign are not in support of Cannabis patients. This is only going to hurt us, just like RACISM, the difference being that society calls us DISABLED. Why is our own industry fighting each other with this propaganda?
Where did the money come from to pay for all this advertising? Wouldnt it have been better spent telling the truth?
I was approached by a person who was part of the focus group to choose the pictures for this campaign and it was based on their emotional response. Like the eye above, it creates an un-natural feeling to the viewer, but this is not what scientifically happens to a Cannabis user. Stop the LIES!
I am very concerned about MMIG, law enforcement and centers that support this. I believe that it is our responsibility as people to confront this Drugged Driving campaign as it is demeaning and discriminatory to us as disabled people. This is only furthering Refer Madness.
Beware that City of Indianapolis v. Edmond, 531 U.S. 32 (2000), is where the Supreme Court of the United States limited the power of law enforcement to conduct suspicion less searches, specifically, using drug-sniffing dogs at roadblocks. Hundreds of thousands of us are in prison, have been killed, tortured and abused by law enforcement, and forced to physically build more private prisons.
To stop this insane attack on health, science and the wellbeing of people, we must all work together.

We at CHNM recognize that in fact cannabis is not appropriate or necessary for everyone. We do not encourage its use by minors, or anyone who is not a legal patient, nor do we believe that every person will benefit from it's use. There are those who seem to have endo-cannabinoid systems that work well enough without the added cannabinoids that consumption offers. CHNM is focused on providing information as a resource to patients, rather than advocating cannabis use.
