Now, on Wikipedia, the rules for editing hold that all articles should be based on Reliable Sources, which makes sense, no?
You would not want to base an Encyclopedia on random junk generated by bullshit artists: that would not do.
And what source could be more reliable, for information on the mental and physical health consequences of the use of cannabis, than a study of these effects performed by our very own United States Institute of Medicine, Marijuana and Medicine: Assessing the Science Base, undertaken in order to assess the value of cannabis as a medication?
A study with thorough attention to detail, a study soundly buttressed by serious research data, void of the detrimental qualities associated with the random opinionation of amateurs which we so frequently find attached to bullshit rhetorical devices?
Sad to say, I’ve already forgotten what I wrote already, and the whole intent behind this post, which kind of sucks… but I no longer smoke pot, so I’m a lot more ADDish nowadays?
Whatever, Science Rocks!, we could use more… and when is a Reliable Source… not?

Is there anything more bogus than the “discipline” of “bioethics”? (At least the authors of the IOM report held degrees in scientific fields!)
“Submitted for your approval…”

HOW VERY VERY SCIENCY IT ALL IS
From Raymond’s masterpiece of venomous trans-misogyny, The Transsexual Empire, p. 168:
TRANSSEXUALISM AND TRANSCENDENCE
“As Mary Daly has pointed out, the spirit can always contain the body but the body cannot always contain the spirit. She notes that a radical feminist analysis will see the problem to be one of overcoming the containment of spirit by body. In contrast to the transsexual who -embodies- transcendence, I suggest that we -“enspirit.”- Daly explains this word further:
– “The process of the Self enspiriting the Self is Dis-possession. The enspiriting Self is not anti-matter, but pro-matter, freeing matter from its restricting/restricted role of vessel/container, unfreezing matter so that it can flow with spirit, fly with spirit.”
She’s just the gal you wanna hire, to draft an “objective”, concise evaluation of the ethical aspects of transsexualism… if you believe that the “insights” of spook-wannabes should govern our world, and wish to anathematize transsexuals?
So that’s just what they did.
