The Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) continues their accelerating drift towards liberalism with their recent support of medical cannabis (marijuana) for young Billy Caldwell who suffers from epilepsy.
Billy’s mother Charlotte Caldwell also enjoys the support of local “potheads” the pro-marijuana political party known as CISTA whose leader Barry Brown has recently opened a “Hemporium” in Omagh!
What do you think Barry is selling in his “pot” shop? Perhaps it’s pots and pans!
Barry and his ilk are using the “medical marijuana” argument to open the door to legalised pot for recreational use and Charlotte Caldwell and others who support the use of medical marijuana in certain cases are helping them to achieve their goal (wittingly or unwittingly.)
There is no consensus among doctors on the safety or otherwise of medical marijuana, the jury is still out.
I’ll end with a quote from an organisation called “Cannabis Skunk Sense” which warns about the dangers of cannabis/marijuana.
“The “scam” (medical cannabis) was started in 1979 by a pot-using American lawyer who said, “We will use the medical marijuana argument as a red herring to give pot a good name.” end of quote
