Cannabis Legalisation Is ‘Appropriating Issues Of Systemic Injustice For Personal Gain Profit’

first_imgMedia Release SayNopeToDope NZ 12 August 2020A social justice advocate from Washington DC says that the idea that legalising cannabis is going to deal with systemic injustices and inequalities is naive at best if not outright appropriating issues of systemic injustice for personal gain and personal profit.The SayNopeToDope Campaign hosted a Facebook event today with interviews of three international experts on cannabis legalisation.Author, consultant, advisor to three U.S. presidential administrations including Barack Obama, and assistant professor, Kevin Sabet, Ph.D., has studied, researched, written about, and implemented drug policy for more than 20 years. He is currently the President and CEO of SAM (Smart Approaches to Marijuana).Professor Mary Cannon is a Professor of Psychiatric Epidemiology and Youth Mental Health in the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI), and Will Jones III is a Communications and Outreach Associate at Smart Approaches to Marijuana (SAM) and Social Justice advocate.From her research, which includes involvement in the Dunedin longitudinal study, Professor Cannon warned that cannabis is strongly associated with psychotic symptoms and psychotic disorders such as schizophrenia. In fact, cannabis use is now the most powerful single environmental risk factor for psychotic disorder. Recent studies from Europe have examined the risks associated with high-potency cannabis (defined as greater than 10 per cent THC) and have found that daily users of high potency cannabis have a nine-fold increased risk of developing schizophrenia or another clinical psychotic disorder. But this “psychotogenic” effect is not confined to adolescent-onset cannabis use and appears more linked to frequency of use. In addition, it is not confined to people with a history of psychotic disorder in their family (although they are at high risk and should avoid cannabis).She concludes that the failure of governments worldwide to control alcohol harms shows that once an addictive substance is legalised and freely available, public health takes a second place to profit.WATCH THE FULL PRESENTATIONlast_img read more

Ouch! How Do Guys Deal With Rejection?

first_img Share Not well, says a recently dumped Jake—not well at all. Allow him to explain the six stages of male-ego grief. (And forgive him if a couple of them involve alcohol.)I take out my phone. I stare at it. I put it back in my pocket. Take it out again. I think for a second. I start texting. I hate myself a little as I hit send.If you think women are the only ones who text-obsess, you couldn’t be more wrong. Jake is supposed to know better. Jake does know better! But here I am, sitting with my dog, Piano (who tries to tell me gently, with his eyes, that I’m being pathetic), desperately texting a woman who probably won’t text me back.In short: J. is blowing me off. We had a few great dates (see my November column). We argued over favorite bands, laughed into the wee hours, fooled around a little. She hung around long enough for me to develop a monster crush. And then she got back with her ex. Thus began, for me, the six stages of rejected-dude grief.Stage 1: Denial What’s the first thing that all guys do after being dumped? We reject your rejection. How could J. not like me back? I’m reasonably hygienic, successful, loving, a proficient swimmer. So I indulge in creating elaborate excuses for J.’s radio silence, some involving a heavy work schedule and contagious illnesses. And I text her, because I assume one great message, with the right combination of warmth and cool insouciance, will convince her that I am the awesomest guy in the universe. Of course, by this point she’s moved on, and nothing I say will change that. I’m Myspace, watching its users dwindle as Facebook conquers the planet and asking, “What if we add more features?”Stage 2: Drinking After rejection, I like to take a nice long run…to my local bar. I surround myself with drinking buddies, who say upbeat things like “She’s an idiot,” “I hope she gets hit by a bus” and “She doesn’t know what she’s missing; you’re a great swimmer.” Their critiques ring hollow because I still like her; flattering me doesn’t help because I don’t like myself at the moment. Still, I keep cheers-ing out of politeness and then make out with someone under an overpass. Later, I throw up.Stage 3: Calling in the FWBs The makeout gives me an idea: Sex is the answer! I turn off my feelings for J. like a light switch, pull out my little black iPhone and start contacting my friends with benefits (FWBs), like the art history student who doesn’t believe in monogamy and Klepto Hipster Girl (she’s cute, and I have too many stereo speakers anyway). Additional symptoms of this stage include watching too much porn.Stage 4: The (Theoretical) Big Life Change This is when I say to myself, I’m done with love. I’m going to ride the Trans-Siberian Railway and post it on my Tumblr. This stage may include a visit to med school websites and a rereading of Into the Wild. I dream about transforming myself—mainly, if I’m being honest, into someone J. would want. Eventually I put down the Marine Corps pamphlet and remember that no heroic deed will make J. love me.Stage 5: More Drinking Do you know how many glasses of wine you can drink and still complete half of a Spin class? The answer is six. Six glasses.Stage 6: Acceptance Around the time I resolve to ease up on the booze—usually after my boss asks if I’m OK—I realize that J. has moved on and I should too. Slowly, as I trade in hookups and junk food for (sober) exercise and hard work, I see that J. wasn’t right for me, nor I for her. Because now that I think about it, she took herself too seriously. And My Morning Jacket as a favorite band? No. Then I get back on the horse (well, OK Cupid) and try again.So what does all this mean to you? It means that just because a man doesn’t appear to be reeling from a breakup doesn’t mean he isn’t. He’s just going through his own, very male process. And if the new guy you’re dating guzzles martinis and starts multiple sentences with “my ex,” you may be part of stage 3; behave accordingly.by JakeMSN Love Sharing is caring!

Syracuse erases 1-goal deficit after Bono’s blunder to defeat Penn State, advance to 3rd round of NCAA tournament

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ For almost 14 minutes in the second half, Syracuse’s historic season was on the verge of ending because of a blunder from its all-conference goalkeeper.Alex Bono’s botched distribution found the feet of Penn State forward Connor Maloney, who was fouled by SU defender Tyler Hilliard and slotted the penalty kick dead center as Bono dove left to give the Nittany Lions a one-goal lead with half an hour left.But then the tide turned.“We looked up with 30 minutes, left and said, ‘Yeah, we’ve got this in the bag,’” SU defender Jordan Murrell said.The Orange pushed numbers forward and peppered PSU goalie Andrew Wolverton, who bent, but didn’t break. After multiple heroic saves from the PSU keeper, SU was finally able to break through.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textLate goals from forward Emil Ekblom and right winger Oyvind Alseth pushed the hosts out in front and ninth-seeded Syracuse (16-3-1) squeaked out a 2-1 victory over Penn State (13-6-1) in the second round of the NCAA tournament in front of 1,213 fans at SU Soccer Stadium on Sunday afternoon.“All season long, when we’ve given up goals we’ve been really quick to get back on the front foot and try and go find our equalizer,” Bono said. “That’s how we’ve been all season and that’s how we’re going to keep being.”Temporarily being on the back foot was a far cry from how the game began, though. Syracuse assaulted the Penn State goal in the first half, as forward Alex Halis, midfielder Liam Callahan and Alseth all had point-blank chances denied by either the post or Wolverton’s fingertips.The head-in-hands position that Bono assumed after his error was the same one SU’s forwards and midfielders often had throughout the opening 45 minutes despite being on the front foot. Frustration reigned throughout the 11 players on the field and the fans in the bleachers, as the home contingent screamed substitution recommendations at McIntyre and at Alseth for not crossing the ball soon enough.Then Bono lost control of the ball after getting caught in between holding onto it and distributing to Hilliard. Maloney put the Nittany Lions ahead early in the second frame and the tension came to a peak.After Bono guessed incorrectly on the penalty kick, he grabbed his water bottle and threw it against the left post as water spurted out. The Atlantic Coast Conference Defensive Player of the Year stood with a blank stare, looking out at the field as his team prepared to kick off down one.“I was very calm,” McIntyre said sarcastically. “No, we were on top of the game at the time and then it was kind of a flukey play and all of a sudden they’ve got a penalty kick.”Syracuse rarely conceded first before Sunday, and would be tasked with climbing out of a hole for only the fourth time this season.When Alseth threaded a perfect through ball to Ekblom on the right edge of the box and the sophomore slotted it bottom left, that was the first step.“It felt like the world got lifted off my shoulders for a second,” Bono said.Then when an intended cross off the foot of Alseth was muffed by Wolverton and ended up over the line, Syracuse was no longer desperate. Instead, elated.Alseth said it wasn’t meant to be a shot, and that he just got lucky.But on a day when the Orange couldn’t convert routine opportunities, it had to be the benefactor of a stroke of chance.Said McIntyre: “You need a little bit of luck. We created our own luck tonight.” Comments Published on November 23, 2014 at 6:41 pm Contact Matt: mcschnei@syr.edu | @matt_schneidmanlast_img read more
