Carly Fiorina's Parenting
Skills Revealed

Weed Whore
Also revealed? General ignorance & foolish delusion:
“You’re not going to like my answer,” Fiorina responded before hearkening back to her breast cancer diagnosis in 2009. At the time, she recounted, her doctor asked “if I was interested in medicinal marijuana.”

“I said ‘No,’ and his response was ‘Good,’ because its a chemically complex compound that we do not understand — we do not understand how it reacts with chemotherapy and all of the other statements,” she said. “It is true today …. [that before you get chemotherapy] you cannot have any marijuana in your system for at least 30 days …”

Van Winkle interrupted. “That’s no longer true, ” she said.

Fiorina paused. “So I will also tell you something else. We lost a daughter to addiction,” Fiorina said, before recounting the death of her daughter due to drug and alcohol abuse.

According to the Annenburg Public Policy Center, it is no longer true that doctors don’t know how marijuana reacts with other drugs. “Prescribing information for approved versions of medical marijuana does contain drug interaction information, and studies have turned up few problems in terms of interactions with cancer therapies, as well as other types of medication,” the organization’s website reads.
"Alcohol abuse". Will Ms. Fiorina bring back Prohibition as well to assuage her (possible) guilt, then?

Meanwhile, here in the real world (Oregon), legal marijuana sales to 21-and-over folks start next Thursday. I'm personally gonna wait a few days for the furor to die down before I stop by to see what's available.

When are you Cali folks gonna catch up so the whole left coast has its shit together, huh? You were there on the medicinal stuff, what's taking so long?

No actual idea, but the one ox that would be gored if temple recommends were no longer needed would be the croakers who advertise in the alt-wkly. papers & charge $35.00 for a five-min. visit & printing the form. Other than that investment, the "medical" thing seems to be working for the dope fiends.

The City of L.A. has apparently cracked down on dispensaries that don't qualify under whatever the municipal code is (a strictish proposition was passed by the people a while ago); a yr. ago there were three w/in two blks. & one six blks. from me, but now there's only one. Unless business was bad or they were incompetent.

I haven't been a smoker in a long time, but I'll probably get some once it's legal just to have around for the occasional puff. Maybe it'll keep me from drinking so much beer? Nah, probably not.

Her stepdaughter died due to a mix of booze and prescription pills, and she wants to keep pot illegal... just fucking great.
