Re: “A Memorial Day open line

Bruce Westerman Avoiding the Cannabis Treatment Option

From Rep Bruce Westerman:
May 23, 2017
Press Release

"WASHINGTON Congressman Bruce Westerman (AR-04) issued the following statement Tuesday (May 23) upon the passage of a collection of bills benefiting veterans:
The men and women who have fought for our country have made sacrifices on behalf of freedom. That is why we must stand up for our veterans and make sure they receive the benefits they have earned. The bills passed today make meaningful reforms to the Veterans Administration, creates accountability within the agency, and addresses other pressing veteran concerns. We cannot fully repay the gratitude owed to Americas heroes, but these bills attempt to make good on our promise to take care of those who sacrificed for the red, white, and blue.
The following eight bills were passed this week and will now go to the Senate for consideration:
H.R. 2052, the PRIVATE Act;
H.R. 467, the VA Scheduling Accountability Act;
H.R. 1005, a bill to amend title 38, United States Code, to improve the provision of adult day health care services for veterans;
H.R. 1162, No Heroes Left Untreated Act;
H.R. 1329, Veterans Compensation Cost-of-Living Adjustment Act of 2017;
H.R. 2288, Veterans Appeals Improvement and Modernization Act of 2017;
H.R. 1545, VA Prescription Data Accountability Act; and
H.R 1725, Quicker Veterans Benefits Delivery Act of 2017"

This man (and his cohorts) have made it an art, to avoid and deny the fact that so many veterans are finding the relief and treatment they NEED with cannabis therapy for their PTSD, and many other conditions, which they and many other Arkansans suffer from and deal with, 24/7/365.
How he, and Senators Cotton and Boozman can sleep well at night, while parading around in the Emperors New Clothes,is so far beyond me, it's incomprehensible. I did not vote for ANY of these 'business as usual' politicians, and they are ignoring the will of the MAJORITY of their Constituents, while crowing about the other business they do. This is a DIRECT slap in the face of the Great State of Arkansas, and yet everyone applauds them, and pats them on the back, while the elephant in the room, grows ever bigger every day that passes. We have become a state, nay, a country, of Ostriches with our heads buried. I am sad and disappointed, and yet angry that the government koolaid is so sweet and hard to put down.

Re: “Disparate interests of large, small marijuana business hopefuls on display at public rules hearing

The strain that will help you the most, will not be available at your local street dealer. Cannabis therapy for people who are ill, suffering and or dying, requires a lot of trial and error, with different strains, CBD to THC ratios, and even the dosage required. many people use a Sativa during their waking hours, and others might use a strong Indica, to help them sleep all night. This is serious, and truly a medicine for those who have had their doctors run them through the wringer on the pharma poisons, which still kill your internal organs, while they claim the benefits outweigh the risks. I call shenanigans on that noise, because the damage can occur quickly, and like everything else, varies greatly, from individual, to individual. People who like to get high, usually wind up with an indica, so they get their butts nailed to the couch. The biggest problem, is people do not understand what this plant is all about.
Those who take part in the industry in those other states, have much the same rules to deal with there, and in some cases, the fees are much steeper, than in Arkansas. The fee for the medical card, in many states, is upward of $100, or more, like $275. There will be many ancillary businesses that will grow along with the cannabis industry, as evidenced by the 20,000 plus new jobs in Colorado.

Re: “Can the Marijuana Commission receive paid travel?

I assume the members of the Marijuana Commission are all over the age of 21, and since they are, they can sample the "product" all they want, as long as they pay for it out of their OWN pocket. I am betting that they won't, though, as that would be a moral misbehavior on their part. According to SOME people, that is...

Re: “Arkansas's surgeon general on medical marijuna

That only brings to light the fact that this man, like so many other medical professionals, have not been trained about the endocannabinoid system and how it happens to regulate every other system in the human body. Oh, and don't forget that these laws were forced down the public's' throat WITHOUT ANY science whatsoever.

Re: “Reefer madness

Far be it from the American Empire, to allow sick and suffering people to smile a little, eat a little, and enjoy their children and families in their last days.
