    Medical Marijuana: Dangerous and Addicting?
    No Medical Evidence!
    Dr. Phil Leveque Salem-News.com

    “Lets get Leveque” was the chant of the Oregon Medical Board during the early years of medical marijuana.

    (MOLALLA, Ore.) – Dr. Phillip LevequeReaders maybe startled to read this title as I was when it was scathingly thrown at me at a Kangaroo Court by the Oregon Medical Board – FBI (Foolish Beyond Ignorance). I couldn’t believe my ears.

    I couldn’t believe my eyes either as I saw some ten members of the Oregon Medical Board sit there like dunces with their pointy hats ostensibly believing and agreeing with every word of the Board Chairman Dr. Frank Spokas of Ontario, Oregon. Other members of the board seemed to be sitting there dumbly taking this all in.

    Hearne. Tulia. Narcotics Task Forces.

    This was Texas, really, just about all over, during that era.

    The Task Forces and all those that “served” in them, and those that just wanted to, want to be reborn.

    It was a free for all for those narcotics task forces. They want to “Play” again. They want “Back in the game”, again.

    Some people actually want them “back in the game” again, it seems.

    It was so obvious and so horrible.

    The audacity of it all.
