But how can this be?  RWHN assured me, quoting a very impressive study from two RAND Corporation experts that legalising marijuana in the USA would have no impact on the Mexican cartels?

Oh, it is having an impact.  3 to be specific. 

1. Some are adjusting and switching to heroin.  Heroin being grown by Mexican farmers who were growing marijuana.  All of this cheap heroin flooding the streets in the US?  Yep, you can trace it, in part, back to marijuana legalization. 

2.  The above said, the cartels still have plenty of business in Colorado, they are simply undercutting the taxed price and still doing quite well for themselves.

3.  Their main competition now is Colorado itself, which has essentially become the marijuana black market for the rest of the country.  A lot of Colorado weed is flowing from the border to 40 of the 50 states.  So Colorado has become for weed, what Florida is for the illegal pill trade.

4.  Hi guys! 

5.  Bye guys!

Please DOX me, and ruin my career!

It is my duty as a parent to stop the the weed basket of the east from bringing its variety of societal ills.

As usual, Mr. Gagnon simply denies evidence and makes unsubstantiated claims, no doubt traced back to his DEA buddy's anecdotes.

YOU GUYS! PEOPLE ARE SWITCHING FROM INJECTING WHOLE MARIJUANAS STRAIGHT TO TEH HEROINS!

Just SAYING STUFF = EVIDENCE, as long as the stuff agrees with his agenda. On the other hand, evidence = just saying stuff, if it undermines his agenda.

Wheeeeeeee...  :lulz:

But on another note....

In the documents, the DOJ argued that while Arquiett did not directly authorize a DEA agent to create a fake Facebook profile, she “implicitly consented by granting access to the information stored in her cellphone and by consenting to the use of that information to aid in … ongoing criminal investigations,” AP reported.


Hahahahaha....Not really surprising, but still.
There's no sun shine coming through her ass, if you are sure of your penis.

Paranoia is a disease unto itself, and may I add, the person standing next to you, may not be who they appear to be, so take precaution.

If there is no order in your sexual life it may be difficult to stay with a whole skin.

Last year the mainstream media was quick to highlight a study from Northwestern University that implied there were structural changes in the brains of people who smoked marijuana, even occasionally. The dubious research was sponsored by groups biased against marijuana including the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP).

Now a new, study published in the Journal of Neuroscience has completely debunked those claims. Researchers at the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience, University of Colorado Boulder and the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, University of Louisville created a trial to attempt to replicate the earlier results but could not.

Participants in the new study were were both adults and adolescents. They were given brain MRIs and carefully selected as those who consume cannabis and those who do not. But this time people who use alcohol were excluded from the study.

The results were clear, "No statistically significant differences were found between daily users and nonusers on volume or shape in the regions of interest," the authors stated.

A cornerstone of modern medical science is not just a single experiment but results that can be replicated again and again.

The researchers in Boulder and Louisville put the issue to bed with their conclusion; "In sum, the results indicate that, when carefully controlling for alcohol use, gender, age, and other variables, there is no association between marijuana use and standard volumetric or shape measurements of subcortical structures."

I'll be interested to hear my neurophysiology professor's take on this.

Does that seem like a really small sample size to you?

Not really, no, not for a preliminary study, or for the degree of confidence for that effect size.

I wouldn't agree with the hype that it's "conclusive", but I do think it's probably pointing in a more accurate direction than studies that don't control for other drug use.
