Jeff Sessions Says Opioid Addiction
Starts With Marijuana. Here Are
6 Studies That Say Otherwise

Reason, by C.J. Ciaramella

Original Article

Posted By:zoidberg, 2/8/2018 8:20:08 AM

Attorney General Jeff Sessions thinks marijuana may be a gateway to prescription opioid and heroin addiction. In fact, a number of academic studies show lower rates of opioid abuse and overdoses in states that have legalized medical marijuana. Speaking at a Heritage Foundation event last night in honor of the late Ronald Reagan´s birthday, Sessions lamented the "permissive rhetoric" and media coverage surrounding marijuana and other drugs. "We don´t think illegal drug use is ´recreation.´ Lax enforcement, permissive rhetoric and the media have undermined the essential need to say no to drug use. Don´t start," Sessions said. "That´s what President Trump

So very disappointing--Jeff Sessions failure to take firm, complete charge in the face of a treasonous plot to overthrow the election of the President of the United States .

Glad(sarc) Jeff found useful work investigating weed and pills.

Oh nice cherry picking of studies to compare apples to oranges. Most of the stories listed compare the use of ´medical´ marijuana to some opiod related death. Now medical marijuana is a misnomer as it is really a prescribe drung with very specific indications under a doctors supervise and it is n[t really marijuana. Its a synthetic derivative of THC. So its different form pot. Also, the out comes are not cause and outcome specific. They are noted outcomes related to some chery picked variable. People using medical marijuana had fewer car realted deaths with opiods invovled. That dosen´tmean theat the medical marijuana produced less car wrecks. It doesn´tcontrol the ogther variables like whethter the pwerson using medical marijuana is unable to drive. As in terminal disease.

Sorry Mr. Sessions, but the true gateway of drugs is alcohol and more people get addicted to opiates through their doctors or a friend doin you a "favor". DEA put pot in the same category as heroin because they reap big money from doing so. Besides, has AG Sessions even heard of the attempted and maybe still going on coup in America?

The writer speaks bull pies. The drug of choice does not matter, the problem is the addictive personality. It may begin with cigarettes and alcohol because those are legal and easier to reach but usually, whatever is handy will do. Those who have marijuana would lose the incentive and ambition to procure anything else, thus the lower opioid use.

Just like blaming shootings on guns, the drugs themselves are not the culprit, willing addicts are.

This has been argued for 50 years getting to where we are now-nowhere. We are a coddling cradle to grave no worries man society. That gives people the wherewithall to get stoned, be unproductive, and still have a roof and an income. Until that ends, #12 is right. A certain % of the population will flake out on something. It doesnt matter what. Chasing potheads is a colossal waste of time.

I like Jeff Sessions but this is an utterly ignorant thing to say. This man is completely clueless on the subject of marijuana. The ONLY link between weed and opiates is the fact that they´re purchased through similar channels, hence the exposure to other types of drugs. Remove the link and that problem disappears. It baffles me how a person can be intelligent enough to make it to Attorney General of the United States and still be so uninformed as to make such a blatantly ridiculous statement.

Is anybody´s position on this authentically forward-reasoned from credible facts? Heavily-rationalized opinions driven by ideology or emotion seem to pervade on every side.

I´d say "get the popcorn and enjoy the spectacle" if the argument had any entertainment value; but after putting up for 40-plus years with arguments masquerading as debate I see it as more of a tedious time-killer than anything else (both the argument and the drug).

For starters, I have never smoked pot in my life or have used any other kind of street drugs. My doctor has prescribed lose dose vicodin, which has been helpful. I don´t have a craving for it, He has added gabapentin to the mix. Jeff Sessions, if you are not a doctor, then shut your mouth. My quality of life has improved, but not perfect. I am 74. My guess is opiod problems are mostly caused by illegal street sales.

#1 and associated posters how about backing up your statements with some real study´s done by unaffiliated real scientific research to support your notion or theory´s that marijuana is a gateway drug.
Its interesting that the main lobbies that are always in the background fighting legalization is the alcohol and opioid pushing pharmaceutical companies. If it was a gateway you would think the opposite would be true.
What about all the well documented studies of real medical benefits for epilepsy patients, glaucoma,cancer etc.... ?

No. AG Jeff Sessions is wrong. As a person of no experience but strong opinions on this issue, what could he possibly know besides his prejudice against the longhairs he encountered in college? The real gateway drugs are the legal ones: alcohol and cigarettes, and alcohol is the worst drug of all, the most debilitating, especially on the highway.

Like Dr. Carroll in Reefer Madness (1936), Sessions is fixated and will not be deterred. Harpoon that Green Whale!

From Reefer Madness: Bureau Official: Here is an example: A fifteen-year-old lad apprehended in the act of staging a holdup - fifteen years old and a marijuana addict. Here is a most tragic case.

Dr. Carroll: Yes. I remember. Just a young boy... under the influence of drugs... who killed his entire family with an axe.


Some very sick or injured people legitimately need opioids; doctors´ prescribing to this class is blameless. Are we going to complicate the availability of painkillers to them? My old house cleaner and her next door neighbor getting 300 Oxycontin pills per month--that´s drug abuse. Florida´s legislature moved against pill mills in 2010.

Predictably, heroin usage is up. Since heroin, a black market drug, comes in all different strengths when mixed with fentanyl and the like, there will be lethal overdoses that wouldn´t happen with a product that is pure, available, and of predictable strength. Addicts are going to get their fixes no matter what we do. As a libertarian on this issue, I say end the War on Drugs, which is petering out as Prohibition did.

Most of the population have no desire to take hard drugs and ruin their lives. That includes me and most everyone here.

My neighbors on both sides, both mid age managers in larger companies, smoked pot just about every weekend and sometimes in the evening. As an old Prison Guard, I am tuned to the smell of it. Both neighbors never once raised hell, went to the heavy stuff or robbed banks to feed their "habit". I smoked the stuff for a few years from in Vietnam and here in the states and never felt compelled to go to harder drugs. I don´t think I ever felt "out of control" or crazy. Just relaxed and mellow. I quit messing with it because I had a job that I could have lost if they knew I smoke it- I just didn´t smoke it anymore. No habit withdrawal at all. Stopping tobacco- now that was a fight.

Good point, #16.

Weed has been classified for decades as a Schedule I drug, defined as drugs with no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse. Schedule I drugs include heroin, LSD, marijuana, ecstasy, methaqualone, and peyote.

It´s absurd to list weed in the same category as heroin. Research into its therapeutic potential has been prohibited by federal law, so I don´t know how it can be stated that it has no medical value.

Citing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh´s record on privacy issues, Sen. Rand Paul (R–Ky.) said Sunday that he has yet to decide if he´ll vote to confirm the judge. "I´m concerned about Kavanaugh," Paul said on Fox & Friends, alluding to the judge´s views on the Fourth Amendment, which protects American citizens from "unreasonable searches and seizures." Paul explained that since President Donald Trump "did such a great job" with his first Supreme Court pick, Neil Gorsuch, he is keeping an "open mind" regarding Kavanaugh.

"We have to STOP the next Trump nominee!" says a pop-up solicitation on People for the American Way´s website. Before you rush to "donate now," you might want to consider the organization´s assessment of Trump´s last Supreme Court nominee. "Far from being a fair-minded constitutionalist," PFAW says, Neil Gorsuch "has proven to be a narrow-minded elitist who consistently votes in favor of corporations and the powerful." The gap between that description and Gorsuch´s actual performance on the Court speaks volumes about the blind partisanship of Trump critics who care more about scoring political points than defending civil liberties.

Harley-Davidson, the iconic American motorcycle brand, will shift some manufacturing overseas in response to the raising of trade barriers on both sides of the Atlantic. In a filing made Monday with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Wisconsin-based Harley-Davidson disclosed plans to move some of its manufacturing facilities from the Rust Belt to the Old World in the hopes of avoiding higher costs created by new European Union tariffs that target American-made motorcycles, along with other cultural products like whiskey and blue jeans.

A Pennsylvania-based company that claims to be the last American manufacturer of steel beer kegs might be driven out of business by the tariffs that President Donald Trump imposed last week. On Thursday, Trump signed an executive order imposing 25 percent tariffs on steel imported into the United States (plus a 10 percent tariff on imported aluminum). The tariff will help steel makers at the expense of steel-consuming businesses like American Keg of Pottstown, Pennsylvania.

One of the ironies of trade protectionism is that tariffs and import quotas are what we do to ourselves in times of peace and what foreign nations do to us with blockades to keep imports from entering our country in times of war. Or consider that we impose sanctions on U.S. enemies such as North Korea, Russia, and Iran because we want them to feel the economic pain of being deprived of imports. But now we are imposing sanctions on our own country, putting up tariffs supposedly to make Americans more prosperous. If ever there were a crisis of logic

They ran identical letters over a four-day period, each signed by a different person. The effort is an example of public-relations ´astroturfing,´ a technique meant to simulate genuine grassroots support for an idea or cause. The form letter is one small piece of the message minefield erupting around Kavanaugh

The man who co-wrote “The Art of the Deal” said Sunday he believes President Trump’s faculties are diminishing — and that he feels obligated to sound the alarm. “We are in a true emergency,” Tony Schwartz said on CNN Sunday. “And the accelerated rate at which his breakdown or decompensation is occurring is cause for us, and certainly for me, to come on to TV more often, to tweet more often.” Schwartz told CNN’s Brian Stelter that he felt comfortable making that assessment because he had “spent an enormous time with [Trump] over a period of 18 months.”(snip)Stelter pointed out that Schwartz

Meghan Markle‘s smile is hiding fear, stress and the pressure of adjusting to her new royal duties, her father said in an interview published Sunday. “I think she is terrified,” Thomas Markle told The Sun. “I see it in her eyes, I see it in her face and I see it in her smile.” “I’ve seen her smile for years. I know her smile. I don’t like the one I’m seeing now,” he added. “This is a pained smile.”The newly-minted Duchess of Sussex, 36, is struggling to cope with the transition from TV actress to a member of the royal

Democratic Tennessee Rep. Steve Cohen on Monday called for the “military folks” to save America from President Donald Trump after Trump’s much-criticized press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin. “Where are our military folks? The Commander in Chief is in the hands of our enemy!” Cohen wrote on Twitter, using language suggestive of a military coup. (Tweet) Cohen later said that he was in no way calling for a coup. “No coup called for,” he wrote, claiming it unlikely that someone would call for a coup on Twitter. Cohen’s bizarre tweet was similar to one from former Obama CIA Director

San Francisco Mayor London Breed said the streets of her city are flooded with the excrement of the homeless in an interview Friday. Breed, a Democrat who was inaugurated as San Francisco’s mayor Wednesday, urged homeless advocacy groups that receive money from the city to teach homeless people to “clean up after themselves.” “There is more feces on the sidewalks than I’ve ever seen growing up here,” Breed told KNTV. “That is a huge problem and we are not just talking about from dogs — we’re talking about from humans.” The streets of San Francisco are littered with a “dangerous

Whether Democrats realize it or not, the names being tossed as potential 2020 challengers to President Trump are weak. It’s milquetoast. All far too left for the American voter, and all with rigid regional appeal. Who knows who Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) is outside of New Jersey? The same could be said for Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY). Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) doesn’t resonate outside of the Boston suburbs. And Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), well, she’s working hard to boost her profile, but she’s running aground with the Bernie crowd. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) could run again, but his age—and the

President Donald Trump’s comments during a joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday were “treasonous,” former CIA Director John Brennan asserted. “Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes & misdemeanors,’” Brennan, a vocal Trump critic, wrote on Twitter. “It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???” Trump and Putin fielded questions from reporters at a joint summit in Helsinki following a one-on-one meeting earlier in the day. Trump praised Putin during

The body of John Hearring -- known as Nicholas -- was discovered with head trauma in his upstairs apartment in the 1000-block of North Leamington Avenue in the South Austin neighborhood. Multiple family members confirmed that he had 43 children. Hearring was a long-time resident there and well-known in the neighborhood. "He was the nicest man you´d ever want to meet. I don´t get it. All this killing is so senseless and now they are targeting the elderly," said Gwen Bridgeforth, his daughter-in-law.
