Dear Friend of America's Survival,
We are finally seeing some common sense from the Trump Administration on the pothead issue. "No amount of marijuana use during pregnancy or adolescence is known to be safe" notes the U.S. Surgeon General’s Advisory: Marijuana Use and the Developing Brain. HHS Secretary Alex M. Azar II said, "The advisory makes clear that marijuana poses substantial risks for the developing brain and discourages youth and pregnant women from using this dangerous drug."
He added, "That same grounding in the science is what spurred the Surgeon General to issue this advisory—the first Surgeon General’s advisory on marijuana since the one issued by C. Everett Koop in 1982. Especially as the potency of marijuana has risen dramatically over the past several decades, we don’t know everything we might want to know about this drug... We need to be clear: Some states’ laws on marijuana may have changed, but the science has not, and federal law has not."
So now it's time to enforce federal law.
Azar also said, "Worryingly, marijuana use is also linked to risk for and early onset of psychotic disorders, such as schizophrenia, and the association strengthens with more frequent use, stronger THC content, and earlier first use."
This means marijuana is linked to mental illness and violence.
Azar said President Trump donated his second quarter salary to promote the advisory that the Surgeon General is releasing today and that "The President’s salary donation will fund the creation of communications materials on this advisory in particular and their targeted promotion on social media."
Much more is needed. Trump must reject the pro-marijuana advice he is getting, expose the marijuana lobby (and its main backer George Soros), and order Attorney General Barr to enforce federal law. That means prosecuting marijuana businesses in states that have legalized pot.
This also means that Trump has to publicly reject the RINO Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner approach of legalizing marijuana on a state-by-state basis. "Cory Gardner is fighting to defend our conservative policies and values," says his website. No, he's fighting for marijuana profits based on exploiting stoners and potheads.
Yet, Gardner is featured at a Trump/GOP fundraiser in New York in September.
Sticking by this pro-pot Senator alienates millions of Americans who want to preserve the health, physical and mental, of America's young people.
For America's Survival,
