U.N.: Worldwide Marijuana Use 'Out of Control' 

U.N.: Worldwide Marijuana Use 'Out of Control'

Washington, DC -- Marijuana use worldwide is out of control because the plant grows everywhere, is in high demand and erroneously is considered by many to be harmless, a U.N. agency said Monday. Antonio Maria Costa, executive director of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, highlighted the marijuana problem at a news conference in releasing his office's 2006 World Drug Report.
Marijuana, also known as cannabis, is a danger because it contains THC, a banned substance, Costa said.While governments around the world generally have succeeded in containing use of heroin, cocaine and amphetamines, marijuana is a different story, Costa said."It's out of control in supply because it's a weed; it grows everywhere. It's out of control in demand because it's erroneously considered a light drug," he said. "But, and indeed, it is extremely problematic because of much-increased THC, tetrahydrocannabinol, content."John Walters, head of the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, agreed that marijuana is "a massive global problem.""It's not just a gateway, it is a dead end as well as an opening for many other people who go on and use other things, and are polydrug users. It has been for a long time," said Walters, who joined Costa at the news conference.The U.N. report released by Costa generally was upbeat, boasting gains including that opium poppy cultivation was down 22 percent in 2005.On the negative side, the report found that cocaine use is reaching alarming levels in Western Europe.It attributed the decline in opium poppy cultivation to cutbacks in the three main source countries of illicit opium in the world: Afghanistan, Myanmar and Laos. Opium is the main ingredient for heroin."In Afghanistan, in 2005, opium poppy cultivation decreased for the first time since 2001," the report said. Still, it said, that country accounted for 89 percent of opium production worldwide.The State Department's annual report on illicit drugs, issued in March, acknowledged that opium production is hampering democracy-building efforts in Afghanistan."Afghanistan's huge drug trade severely impacts efforts to rebuild the economy, develop a strong democratic government based on rule of law, and threatens regional stability," the report said.Despite the sharp decrease in the total area under cultivation in all opium-producing countries, the U.N. report said production was down only 5 percent due to more favorable weather conditions during the 2005 growing season in Afghanistan.

educate the public
that's the best we can do, short of another revolutionary war, which would be difficult, considering how well equipped our own government is to fight it.Spread the word, tell everyone you know.I also read that link someone posted "The Bush-Chaney Drug Empire," and it just sickens me, what they will do for control, while they sit in the white house blowing lines of coke and anything else they want, because laws don't apply to them.

It is "abused" because it is illegal. Most people want to evade juror duty. I WANT to be a juror! I would exercise jury veto power if the law is unfair, such as "Marijuana."Have any of you people ever looked at your State Constitution? Notice that among the first few provisions of your individuals freedoms there is one describing that the people are sovereign, the government is there to serve the people, and the people have the authority to alter or reform the government when the public good requires it. Jury nullification is the most practical and expeditious means of altering and reforming government, because of the difficulty getting legislation passed! This is the "power to the people" provision we need to keep. This is why the Bush/Kerry snakehead political parties are so dangerous to the American people!! They threaten to repeal the State Constitutions and U.S. Constitution, for the sake of a trilateral agreement to merge Canada-Mexico-United States into a one continent government! They have not told you this in major media, though! Remember: the United Nations "Universal Declaration of Human Rights" does not have a right to a jury trial, to keep and bear arms, prohibiton against unreasonable searches and seizures without a warrant, against self-incrimination. Check out for their movie entitled THE GANG?

That's horrible! How do they keep getting away with things like that. So Costa is basically a mass murderer. He starved the people to death by killing everything...including the poppies! Why werent' they helped? Oh...drugs. You don't help people when it comes to drugs. You just punish, and punish, and punish...even to death.That once would have been considered a crime...but not if it has anything to do with drugs. They can do anything without worry of conscience if drugs are a part of the mix."The goal was total poppy eradication. Regardless of the human cost."

I actually consider cannabis to be the Christian sacrament so I don't have to try to figure out which Native American tribes might have used it in their practices. I think it was common to a lot of different traditions though and we often have different metaphors describing the same things.

They're one of the easier things for people to grow in their homes because you don't need expensive lighting or anything really but a dark corner. I've certainly eaten my share in the past.This is what Erowid says:Psilocybin mushrooms are not specifically named in the U.S. federal scheduling system, however their two primary active chemicals Psilocybin and Psilocin are both Schedule I in the United States. This means they are illegal to manufacture, buy, possess, or distribute (sell, trade or give) without a DEA license. Fresh and dried psilocybin mushrooms are considered containers of Psilocybin and Psilocin, making them illegal to possess as well.Because spores contain no psilocybin or psilocin, they are legal to sell and possess (in all states except California and Georgia). But in most states, it is illegal to cultivate or propogate spores into mycelium since mycelium generally contains both psilocybin and psilocin.Some states in the U.S. and some countries have ruled that growing psilocybe mushrooms does not qualify as 'manufacturing' a controlled substance (psilocybin).

Certainly 'war' is not against any 'international law' according to the us.

It is toothless and maintains nothing but the status quo, global ensure, by the acceptance of principles and the institution of methods, that armed force shall not be used, save in the common interest, and - which apparently includes cannabis users, the UN itself has no standing army so cannot enforce employ international machinery for the promotion of the economic and social advancement of all peoples,
 except so-called illicit drug usersHAVE RESOLVED TO COMBINE OUR EFFORTS TO ACCOMPLISH THESE AIMSAccordingly, our respective Governments, through representatives assembled in the city of San Francisco, who have exhibited their full powers found to be in good and due form, have agreed to the present Charter of the United Nations and do hereby establish an international organization to be known as the United Nations. 
The UN charter is not worth the paper it is written on. I used to believe in the UN but now I think its just another corrupt bureacracy, toothess, worthless.

Unkat27 if this is you, I'm blown away with admiration.I just read this one:, and here I can make my point as clearly as I might for those who may understand it. I am engaged here in a religious mission for cannabis. This is a religious dispute. So I cannot, absolutely cannot, seek political power, use force, engage in the state in any way except as to interact when necessary.If I did that, I would be engaging in religious war.That's something that's against my religion. *wink*

Interesting read on Costa's pretty clear that Costa is a part of the new World Order crowd. His job has a public face, that of fighting drugs, and a covert face, that of 3rd world destabilization, population dispersal/reduction, and the setup of new business oppurtunities for the globalists, which includes ALL of the Pharma industry and many other bigtime corporations.UNODC's Antonio Maria Costa: Architect of Death for the Akha of Laos 
By Akha Drug War 
12/29/2005 10:44:16 AM ESTThis is UNODC's Antonio Maria Costa. He is the Director of the UNODC Office of Drugs and Crime.He is the one who along with the US Govt. hatched the Drug War plans in Laos that resulted in the severe humanitarian disaster for the Akha of Laos. A "death plan" if you will. Architect of Death. He was helped by Amreicans like David J. Wise NAS. The goal was total poppy eradication. Regardless of the human cost.Anyone with experience could have looked into the region and been aware that a rapid poppy eradication plan was going to bring severe problems and death to the Akha people. As of 2006 you can still go there and witness the results in full swing."We know they are dying, we are helping to alleviate their poverty. We have started a new plan, called 'The Plan To Stop Eating'. The Akha should be grateful."

Hey, Whig...
MadKrow is Unkat! He's pretty sharp, eh?About potency...I never hear anyone mention that cannabis, no matter how potent, is self limiting. After a couple of smokes you know what you've got. Cannabis, even the most potent, will only get you as high as it will...after that, smoking more is just a waste unless you just enjoy smoking it. I've even had some that would bring you down if you smoked more of it than necessary. Cannabis is so strange. Another thing that is seldom mentioned is that mixing varieties of pot that you might have left over can be a mistake. It's been well noticed over the years that if you put together what you have left of any two...that what you get will be no stronger than the weakest pot you added to it. It doesn't just bulk up the better pot. You can add tobacco to it without that happening...but two pots will inevitably turn out that way.I've smoked myself straight more than once.Weak pot means smoking more and that means more irritation. There's always been one and two hit pot...but in the olden days most of us never thought about trying to use just one or two hits because we just smoked it without giving thought to one hit or two hit. Although I noticed at the time that non-tobacco smokers only took one or two puffs to get well into the action. I've never gotten too skunked on just pot...good pot. But you throw alcohol...even a small amount...into the mix with some potent cannabises, and you might have to lay down till the alcohol eases up. I had that happen once. The key being don't drink when you use that "flavor" of cannabis.

Walters lies
Someone needs to confront John walters on his lie, comparing high potency marijuana to cocaine and heroin. It needs to be done soon, because too many prohibtionist are starting to use this lame argument. Anyone who smokes marijuana knows the higher the potency the less is required to get to a desired state. You could set this up in a simple experiment. Take two groups of marijuana smokers with varying levels of tolerance within in each group. Give one group low thc marijuana the other high thc and compare amount used. This way you could show that the higher the thc concentration the less adverse healt effects one would have due to the amount used.

That link you posted is amazingly good. Please everyone read it, he is making the same points as we are here but puts them into different terms.Words are just metaphors anyhow. The more metaphors to describe the same thing, the better we understand the underlying concept.Cannabis is unity. Or to say it another way, it brings us into awareness of one another as equal parts of a cosmic whole.

Mary-Jane: The PTB's Favorite Scapegoat
This is just another BS way of blaming all the world's problems on marijuana and drugs, when in fact all the world's problems are due to poverty and the unequal distribution of wealth.The latter is the reality that the corporate whores of the mainstream and DC politics are doing their best to hide, ignore, and deny. They enjoy hording wealth and they don't like sharing it, so they deny that poverty is the real problem and blame drugs and marijuana. They lead the sheep to believe that marijuana and drug abuse are the cause of poverty rather than the other way around.Anyone that is born in poverty and works hard all their lives to escape it knows that drug abuse is just another easier "temporary" escape from it and if it were not for the awful conditions of poverty it would not be so compelling an escape. Marijuana, otoh, is wrongly misunderstood and mistaken, and intentionally blamed for all these problems. But it is just another scapegoat for the problems of the world. The PTB lies about it, not because they want to scare kids away from it, but because they fear it could change the world by making it a better place, a place where vampires and vultures cannot flourish.

Thanks a lot for the link! When Pot TV goes down, you never know if it's for good or not. Of course, these grand avenues of Emery's activism are the sole reason they want to extradite him so badly. He has been the main pillar and nurturer of Canadian marijuana reform, and it's likely that example of freedom is the prohibitionist's biggest threat!From this article:John Walters, head of the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, agreed that marijuana is "a massive global problem."Lies characterize our current "leadership" and nowhere are they more essential than in the war on marijuana consumers. Marijuana is not a problem for consumers, and it's not a problem for the drug warriors. As a matter of fact, it is their bread and butter - their golden goose. They couldn't live without it. If marijuana disappeared overnight, the Cannabis Culture would suffer a loss, but these parasites would simply shrivel up and die. It would almost be worth it 8^)"It's not just a gateway, it is a dead end as well Another great Walters Whopper. Among other things, marijuana is the great antidote to the constant barrage of propaganda that convinces most people those who have siezed the reins of power have the interest of the people at heart. Just the opposite of being a "dead end," it is the key to the door that allows us to escape this fine-tuned madness - see reality, and build a real life and real communities - and attain real happiness!Thank Gaia for Cannabis!

Cannabis-Related Health Damage???
World is beating drug addiction, says UN: the above linked article...The report also shines a spotlight on cannabis, which it describes as the “world’s most abused illicit drug”. While government policies have waxed and waned, “traffickers have invested heavily in increasing the potency of cannabis. The result has been devastating: today the characteristics of cannabis are no longer that different from those of other plant-based drugs, such as cocaine and heroin. With cannabis-related health damage increasing, it is fundamentally wrong for countries to make cannabis control dependent on which party is in government.”What increase in cannabis-related health damage?

Remember that Cannabis has never caused a single death, kicked in a single door, shot dead a single person, but Prohibition has and is. oh ya happy 61 birthday UN.

You're exactly right.2001 was while the Taliban were in control of Afghanistan. There was almost no opium produced that year in the country. After the US and Northern Alliance overthrew the Taliban, the production levels went to world record levels, and continued to increase in 2003 and 2004. A 5% drop in 2005 follows a nearly 300% rise the year before.

it grows everywhere
i love the way he makes it sound as though it's just growing everywhere, all over the place, no matter what!! like it's a ditch weed problem - 'because it's a weed' HAHA - and to say opium production is down for the first time in 2005 since 2001 means nothing - i'm not sure what the actual figures are but that could theoretically mean it went down in 2001 - then way way way up for 4 years and then down a real little tiny bit in 2005. he's trying to make it sound as though it went down to below what it was in 2001. and was this an article on cannabis, opium or drugs in general? the headline is pure propaganda - once again. everyone knows that the masses of ignorant sheeple read a good deal of headlines without reading the articles themselves.and so what if you smoke more or the same amount of cannabis with high amounts of thc versus low amounts? it's still not going to give you lung cancer - or a plethora of other ailments that you might get from legal drugs. duh. but on the other hand you just might not need as much, thereby saving you from some coughing. not to mention, this 'super, not your 60's pot' tastes a whole lot better and has a more pleasant aroma.this really discredits the U.N. - too many people are paying attention to buy this crap anymore.oh and i've not had any in months without a thought in my head about needing it or anything else to replace it. what a lovely gift from the earth!! it knows to let go when the time comes!! :)

Costa and Walters 
are dishonest and their goal is to delude the nations for the profit of a few. They, and supporters of prohibition, are not our parents and we aren't children. They are no better than anyone else and to criminalize normal behavior will soon be seen for the travesty that it is.When they say "Out of control"...they mean, "Those people act like they're free people or equals or something! How dare they presume to choose for themselves what they consume? They have to obey us or they're out of control!"Notice I said this will happen "soon". I don't know why. But that came very clearly to my mind. I hesitated at the word "soon"...but felt reassured to go ahead and say it.Soon!

... the real story about why they have demonized this mild herb will come out. I hope I'm alive to hear it.  I think we all have a pretty good idea, but it will be nice to hear it from the horse's mouth.BTW, has everyone else been having a hard time getting into Pot TV and Cannabis Culture Mag. lately? I haven't been able to get through for a few days.

danger Will Rogers danger!
I don't know about the rest of the world, but cannabis use is about to be TOTALLY out of control in my living room right now, I had a long day. Here's hoping the rest of you are getting "totally out of control" tonight too!

Walters and his deceitful honking
John Walters, head of the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, agreed that marijuana is "a massive global problem."I'd say a much bigger global problem by far is the unchecked proliferation of corrupt, ignorant, bleating bureaucrats and shills like you, Mr. Walters. I can't see any damage from cannabis, indeed I see positive effects from it every day, but the damage to real peoples' lives that zealots like you do is all too apparent.

extremely problematic due to increased THC levels
Once again we hear about the "dangerous marijuana" because of it's startling higher levels of THC. Perhapse somebody should inform the good folks at the UN that marijuana isn't a little pill with a preset dose. I would think government and united nations officials, would at least have enough brains to know that more potency merely means less smoking to get the same effect. ah but then, after all, critical thinking isn't exactly the driving force behind the drug war.
