            Ringleader has it exactly right!

            If Jason Parce thinks that a kid can overdose on THC, he needs to go back to drug school.

            Teach your kids to stay away from the SRO, he is not your friend or your counselor, he is a cop and cops want to charge you with crimes and put you in jail, if not you, anyone you talk to him about.

            I think it appropriate after reading this article that brings our attention to an obvious drug problem with our population.I commend the work of the two officers and the reporter Jesse Davis and the Interlake for publishing it. After reading only one posted comment (Ringleader) supporting the use of Marijuana and the ridicule that followed,I feel compelled to also comment towards the reasons that this drug is on schedule 1. I will refer you to a U.S. Food & Drug Administration news announcement dated April 20, 2006 Titled: Inter-Agency Advisory regarding claims that smoked Marijuana is a Medicine. I believe if your reporter Jesse Davis got a copy of that for publication it might help inform the Public and the poster of facts they may not be aware of. Such as the DEA The Drug Enforcement Administration The CSA The Controlled Substance Act ,The Department of Health and Services (HHS)The Substance Abuse And Mental Health Services (SAMHSA), The National Institute for Drug Abuse (NIDA) to name a few. These Agencies are the ones who endorse and test the safety of products being consumed by our citizens . Publish the news release and we would do favor to inform the public of the harmful effects of Smoking Marijuana

            First: where's the parenting? Discipline? Second: anyone with any minimal education should know marijuana should NOT be schedule 1. PERIOD. You can NOT overdose on cannabis, unless you consume more than 1500 pounds, which is impossible. This is a fact. ZERO OVERDOSES ZERO DEATHS AND ZERO SIDE EFFECTS (except hunger) IN THE HISTORY OF MANKIND!! Once people have been educated to this FACT then it should be removed from this equation all together. Marijuana is safer than Tylenol, and its benefits are overwhelming at this point. Our focus needs to be on these other substances. It is almost laughable that marijuana would be looked at as a harmful substance. Only the federal government has that opinion at this point, and only because there's "NO MONEY IN HEALTHY PEOPLE"!! Wake up people and for the love of god educate yourselves!!! It's these other SYNTHETIC substances that pose risk to our society. But on a whole, it's all big business really. Educate yourself then educate your children! Be proactive about what they are learning! Google cannabis and cannabinoids. Hear from doctors around the world about cannabis before you listen to these federal and state officials tell you what they are paid to tell you.
