Re: “It Is Finally Here! The 2019 Tucson Weekly Cannabis Bowl!

The Tucson Weekly's advocacy for the use of Marijuana is Completely Irresponsible; a Disregard for the Health and Safety of the Community!!

The "Medical Marijuana" of today is NOT like the Marijuana used in the 70's and 80's. Through Artificial Selection Experiments, strains of Marijuana have been developed by the Marijuana Drug Industry that substantially increase the potency of the Drug. As such, its' use poses serious potential consequences.

Marijuana of today is a Very Potent and Dangerous Drug!!!

"Marijuana pipe found in car of driver charged in crash that killed Ann Day"; Carmen Duarte Arizona Daily Star May 12, 2016.

"Fatal road crashes involving marijuana double after state legalizes drug": Science News, May 10, 2016. Source: AAA

Summary: "Fatal crashes involving drivers who recently used marijuana doubled in Washington after the state legalized the drug, according to the latest research. New research also shows that legal limits for marijuana and driving are arbitrary and unsupported by science, which could result in unsafe motorists going free and others being wrongfully convicted for impaired driving. Washington was one of the first two states to legalize the recreational use of marijuana, and these findings raise serious concerns about drug-impaired driving with at least 20 states considering marijuana legalization this year."

Marijuana use for Medical purpose should be supported by Scientific evidence, including Clinical Trials, and regulated by the FDA; closely monitored by the tending Physician and State Department of Health. Medical Marijuana should be available by Prescription only (in a Pharmacy) issued by a Licensed Physician.

Congress should amend the Controlled Substances Act of 1970: Controlled Substances Act (CSA) (21 U.S.C. 812) making Marijuana available for Medical Treatment.

The major consumers of this Drug, if legalized for so-called recreational purposes, will be the younger generation; destroying the very fabric/future of our Democracy.

This Drug should NOT be legalized for recreational purposes!!!

Re: “Danehy: Valentine’s Day Edition

The Best song with love in the title: Percy Sledge: When a Man Loves a Woman

Other good songs with love in the title: Queen: Crazy Little Thing Called Love; The King: I Cant Help Falling in Love

And the most lovey of songs with the most love(s): The Beatles: All You Need is Love

The best St. Valentines day movie to watch without the word love in the title(as per Sleepless in Seattle, An Affair to Remember, et. al.): Youve Got Mail.

Good movies with love in the title: Punch Drunk Love; From Russia with Love (the only Bond); Dr. Strangelove (cheating, but still a great movie)

Not a good movie but a good Tucson movie with love in the title: Cant Buy Me Love (tctw is in there somewhere)

Re: “Arizona Reaction to Trump’s Border Emergency Splits Along Party Lines

Temper your distraction over border security with the sobering thought that El Chapo admitted to paying former Mexican President Nieto more than $100M. Could any of that money found it's way onto American soil, in an effort to oppose construction of border walls?

In this political climate anything is possible. Just look at what the FBI has done. hmmm

Re: “Eviction Highlighted in Series of Library Events

I realized a long time ago that the US is a dog eat dog country where it is every person for himself. No other industrialized country on the planet has the poverty, ignorance, lack of medical care, of lack of caring in general. The US is a country more obsessed with guns than caring about their neighbor. The wealthiest country in the history of the world. yet cant afford to educate its young, care for its elderly, or make health care, housing and food rights that everyone deserves.

I am not complaining for myself as I have always done fine. I leaned at a very young age how to become self employed and have been making a living that way for over 60 years. I still enjoy my work and make enough to enjoy live. I just have a sadness in my heart for millions who have not been able to make it and are simply pushed aside by a government obsessed with making sure the wealthiest stay that way and actually get wealthier on the backs of the common worker. America should be ashamed to call itself the land of the free, the great experiment, the exceptional nation, etc. Even Cuba, as poor as it is, offers one of the best health care programs in the world.

The use by me of THC+CBC helps keep my intraocular eye pressure at a "normal pressure (15) both eyes.
When not used the pressure is always around 24.

Re: “Cold and Tired: Liam Neeson is out for revenge—again

Neeson's best role -- "Gun Shy." A reluctant DEA agent with the luck of some strange force that protects the terrified agent. It goes well beyond the LOL stage to dark humor that actually stays in mind on your own way to bliss in the face of impossible odds. (There is a copy on y-tube.)

Re: “Danehy: Valentine’s Day Edition

I find that "love" is a very limiting word in English. covering everything from passion to the love of a child, through art appreciation and the love of a professional wrestling character. We need a better vocabulary.

Ancient Greeks and current Roman Catholics have a term "agape'" do describe love which, between the common ancient use and today's use in the official Catholic canon have very different meanings.

The love expressed ion a valentine commercial sense can be sincere and cheesy at the same time.

Yes, we should celebrates the emotions of love in all their depth and width -- but carefully decide what we mean when we say "love" to an individual.

I thought that The Birdcage with Robin Willians and Nathan Lane was a better rom com than love actually.

Re: “Strata Deep: An insider’s look at the gem show

^ If you look at the article TW wrote about the gem show last week, you'll see it goes into explicit detail about why this is the 65th year, and also features this paragraph all about the Gem and Mineral Society:

"The centerpiece of the gem show is the registered and trademarked "Tucson Gem and Mineral Show" presented by the Tucson Gem & Mineral Society. Branding itself as the "largest, oldest and most prestigious gem and mineral show in the world." Housed in the Tucson Convention Center, the show runs from Feb. 14 to 17, and goes far beyond selling stones. The Tucson Gem and Mineral Show invites approximately 3,000 Arizona students to attend for free, and educates with lectures and seminars, for both adults and children."

Maybe they're not trying to do a disservice, maybe they're just writing about a different angle this week
