i was blitzed, so i "ASKed FRANK"

Post by killertofu » Thu Jan 18, 2007 2:32 am

i wrote a letter to ask frank (i guess he's like the british version of D.A.R.E.) and this is the response i got lol.

why do you make the sweet mary jane seem to be a villian with the way
you write about her? (and yes, i am personifying cannibis, because
she's not just a wacky plant, she is a portal inside yourself) you
know, i'm not going to knock FRANK. you guys are very tenacious in the
way you promote yourselves, inform and do all that lot, but i feel you
are using your powers for evil. you know people are going to use drugs
at the very least, cannibis (i don't like putting mary jane in the same
category as crack, meth, heroin, etc.) so why not educate them? why
not
give proper advice and real talk instead of using government funded
scare tactics. why not source and credit UNBIASED studies and surveys?
if you'd like an example, www.erowid.org, is more than fitting. i'm
not
advertising erowid, so don't get the wrong idea, but i am trying to
present you an example as to correctly and fairly post your
information.
please send me a response back and not ignore me as many in the public
eye do when they realize they've been found out.

-K.


the response
Hi Kyndra.

Thank you for your e-mail.

Drug use is your choice and your responsibility. It's up to you to
evaluate the risks of cannabis. See below.

What are the risks of using cannabis?


With long term heavy use, the user may feel lethargic, no drive, short
term memory loss, and if used with tobacco, coughs and sore throats.


- smoking it with tobacco may lead to users becoming hooked on
cigarettes

- it impairs the ability to learn and concentrate

- it can leave people tired and lacking energy

- users may lack motivation and feel apathetic

- it can make users paranoid and anxious, depending on their mood and
situation




What is skunk?


Skunk is a type of herbal cannabis. It is grown from specially
cultivated seeds.


The effect of skunk is more pronounced and can cause hallucinogenic
effects. Some people may find it to strong and the experience of
disturbing, while others may enjoy the greater effects.


Increasing amounts of this is being home grown for private use.


Another type of super-strength cannabis is Northern Lights.




Can cannabis affect my physical health?


There are a number of risks to health associated with misuse of
cannabis.


Cannabis affects blood pressure and increases heart rate. This can be
particularly dangerous for people with diseases of the cardiovascular
system, especially those with coronary artery disease, high blood
pressure and those people at risk of strokes.


Cannabis can worsen asthma. Frequent misuse of cannabis may also
decrease sperm counts in men and suppress ovulation in women.


Cannabis is most frequently smoked. Smoking in any form is harmful, and
tobacco smoking is the largest single cause of ill-health and premature
death in the United Kingdom. Smoking cannabis, therefore, presents a
real health risk, potentially similar to that of tobacco, with
increased
incidence of bronchitis, asthma, and lung cancer, as well as disorders
of the heart and circulation. Smoking cannabis may be more harmful than
smoking tobacco, since cannabis has a higher concentration of certain
chemicals that can cause cancer.




Are there risks to mental health associated with cannabis?


Yes - using cannabis can lead to panic attacks, paranoia and confused
feelings.


In some cases, acute cannabis intoxication can produce a psychotic
state, which may continue for some time, and which may require
treatment
with prescribed drugs.


Cannabis can worsen schizophrenia, and other mental illnesses, among
people who already suffer from them. The problem being that you may not
be aware if you have an underlying mental health problem.


Anyone who has a mental illness should, therefore, avoid using cannabis

Your brother sounds like a great man :D I remember in school we all got sent to younger years classes and had to stay with the class all day and teach them about sex, drugs and alcohol. So naturally we all got high and drunk throughout the day then at lunch i went home and had sex with my girlfriend. Sounds like i'm bragging....and i am :D :D i'm damn proud of that.

he starts saying where you can get help and quit, which obviously you dont want to and also he avoided the question by informing you on the effects of it.
