Re: “The Cannabis Conundrum

Correction:

"Cannabis was once a common ingredient in patent medicines, but for most of modern memory it has been a prohibited, stigmatized stoney gateway drug."

Should read:

"Cannabis was once common, but for most of modern memory it has been stigmatized as a prohibited, stoney gateway drug."

This addresses the stigma without said stigma, and recognizes the fact of marijuana's ubiquity before such stigmatizing began. Limiting cannabis discussion to terms of drugs and medicines completely ignores the plant's lucrative presence in all of history and today. It's very common, but it's also a result of the stigma that is being addressed. "Drug" and "medicine" can be used synonymously with "cannabis" in applied contexts, but it's just false information to suggest the plant is primarily either.

Re: “Nurses, Stat

Let's talk about wages! Compare the wages (& benefits) just between the 2 area hospitals. Let alone to the rest of California. How many RNs do we loose if they can make $15 more per hour w/ better benefits & less stress?

Re: “The Cannabis Conundrum

marijuana isnt addictive in any traditional sense of the term. this needs to be made clear and understood. consuming marijuana is a habit, it alters a perception not unlike being engaged in a fun activity, but there are no dependant withdrawal issues beyond the habit, and psychology thereof. caffiene is addictive, the withdrawl can be especially painful even after short use, as it literally affects blood flow. i experience crippling migranes coming off of caffiene, no more for me. sugar is ridiculously addictive, and harmful, in more ways than our commercially profitable society will ever address. alcohol is a demon of addiction, the withdrawls can literally be deadly. but marijuana is not addictive, and the term "gateway drug" has long been understood to be a scare tactic. the term "gateway drug" is ONLY used by people ignorant of the greater human condition enough to use the term in the first place. this is all common knowledge to the truely experienced. as a substance abuse counselor, the author of this article made a living addressing worst case scenarios (and probably lots of pointless court mandated cases). ive known many counselors. marijuana belongs to everybody, yet we've all been raised in an era of generations old prohibition and fear mongering. people who really have a grasp of the bigger picture gained from open experience are few and far between, whereas the regurgitated propaganda of yesteryear is still being barfed all over the place today.

Re: “Nurses, Stat

It is a shame that our public officials have done little to address the nursing shortage and for that matter an overall medical professional shortage in Humboldt County. It is only getting worse as more and more medical professionals are retiring or leaving the county. We need an innovative program to lure nurses and doctors and support personnel to our community. This is becoming, if not already, a public health crisis. The excuse that, "it's just as bad in other rural communities" is tiresome and a shirk of responsibility. Our public officials should prioritize public health and attend a seminar or two on the subject rather than sticking their heads in the sand.

Re: “How Sweet It Ain't

Actually, fat is a large part of the problem; the fat found in seeds. The Government's dietary advice to replace saturated fats with polyunsaturated oils caused the food supply to be altered. https://www.credit-suisse.com/us/en/articles/articles/news-and-expertise/2015/09/en/fat-the-new-health-paradigm.html

Re: “How Sweet It Ain't

Doctors at the International Council for Truth in Medicine are revealing the truth about diabetes that has been suppressed for over 21 years.

Last year they helped over 17,542 type 2 diabetics end the need for prescription drugs, insulin injections and blood sugar monitoring.

This year they're on track to help over 30,000.

In just a few weeks, 96% of their patients are able to stop ALL diabetes medication and insulin injections.

No more neuropathy pain, pricking your finger, or the need for expensive medication.
