Marijuana Advisor To Sessions Wants To Drug Test Everyone

Natural Blaze – by Heather Callaghan

It’s bad enough in 2018 that the war on drugs still exists in the deluded minds of government higher-ups, just as some states begin to legalize recreational marijuana. And just as they do, Attorney General Jeff Sessions dropped the bomb that the Federal Government ended its leniency toward states’ rights for medical marijuanaThus, we devolve as a nation.

But the biggest blow to Americans was when Sessions’ DEA, although going after marijuana as a dangerous substance – in essence gave a Pharma opioid maker the rights to a partial national monopoly on synthetic THC!

What’s worse, it looks like the War on Drugs has just collided with Mad Medicine.

Herb.co reports:

A top-level advisor to Attorney General Jeff Sessions wants doctors to drug test all their patients, and to force users, they suspect of addiction into rehabilitation against their will. If Robert DuPont gets his way, drug testing could become a required part of your visit to the doctor.

DuPont, 81, is one of a small group of drug-policy “experts” Sessions invited to a closed meeting last month to discuss federal response to marijuana legalization. He is one of the most hardline and influential architects of the Drug War, having started out in the 1970s as a liberal on the drug control issue. But by the 1980s DuPont had taken a hard right turn, popularizing the long-debunked claim that cannabis is a “gateway drug.”

DuPont wants to force people into treatment for up to 5 years.

In an interview last year, DuPont pushed for expanding drug testing. His idea includes having physicians force patients whom they believe to have substance abuse problems to submit to drug tests, or lengthy stays in treatment facilities reportsNewsweek.

“Among other things, he proposed giving doctors the authority to compel suspected substance abusers into treatment against their will,” reportsThe Daily Beast. “Once in treatment, patients could face up to five years of monitoring, including random drug tests.”

“We want [drug screens] to be routine in all medicine,” DuPont said. “Doctors already check for things like cholesterol and blood sugar, why not test for illicit drugs? Right now the public thinks that if we provide treatment the addicts will come and get well … that’s not true. So let’s use the leverage of the criminal justice system.”

It is quite the understatement to say that America has been ejected right off that proverbial slippery slope. Can you imagine anything more invasive when modern medicine and drug laws are already so intrusive?

DuPont doesn’t even want to try treatment but views all drug use as a forbidden crime for which there must be government intervention.

In 2010, he penned a national model bill that “called on cops to test anyone stopped for suspicion of driving under the influence for all controlled substances, and arresting them on the spot if the slightest trace showed up — regardless of the amount. While the bill includes an exemption for drivers with prescriptions, cannabis users would still get busted. Medical-marijuana patients don’t have prescriptions (due to federal law), just doctor recommendations.”

That bill would not only punish legal medical marijuana patients in states which permit its use, but anyone for any substance that is legal to consume – even alcohol or medicine. Any failure of a bodily drug test would constitute possession of the substance!

So with DuPont’s ideas, we could look forward to a nation of forced drug testing, invasive extraction of bodily fluids, zero tolerance of substances including alcohol or cold medicine, instant arrests and federal charges of crimes for any deviation. Bye, bye 4th Amendment.

A few notable things about DuPont:

  • He was the former drug czar to Richard Nixon.
  • Vaguely warned The Washington Post the marijuana would have “horrendous” effects on society.
  • Although serving for the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) he later had ties to the drug-testing industry. (source)
  • “In 2000, he appeared before the federal Food and Drug Administration, pushing for expanded hair follicle testing.” ! (source)
  • Yes, it is and would be financially gainful for him to continue opposing friendly cannabis legislation. He was a ” paid consultant and shareholder in Psychemedics, which offered costly hair testing analysis.”

What else can we say? Whereas the state laws allowing cannabis freedom were a breath of fresh air in the midst of a war on freedom – we are heading back to the dinosaurs where the breath of aging, drug-war addled elites whispers into the ear of the Attorney General. President Trump is strangely absent from these conflicts.

    Is there anyone left who still thinks we’re living in America?

    If so, this message is for YOU:
    You’re an idiot.

    Start that testing with the cops

    • Enemy of the State says:

      Right
      And when they say everyone
      That means all you government types and employed by my tax dollars and welfare recipients get to the front of the line
      No warning 5 randoms

      Everyone in those positions go first
      And if ANY one of those come up dirty
      F:ck you even thinking about the General public

      • Henry Shivley says:

        Those welfare recipients cannot have their rights to procedural due process removed by any pretend authority.
        Enemy, I know you are a solid dude, but grouping people forced to get food from the government with the government is painting with way too wide of a brush.
        When I look at this, I say if someone is going to be drug tested for getting money from the government, it needs to be on Wall Street where they took bail out money to buy cocaine, champagne, and whores, not in poor-ville where they are puffing marijuana and drinking disco wine.
        I know it chaps people’s asses, but whatever the poor are getting, it is not a tiny drop in the bucket to what is being stolen from them.
        In the end equation, no one can tell us what we can and cannot put in our bodies.
        If our wealth was not being extracted from us and run through this evil system, the notion of such would be cause for a rope.

        • Jolly Roger says:

          “….but whatever the poor are getting, it is not a tiny drop in the bucket to what is being stolen from them….”

          I explain this to people all the time, in almost the exact words.

        • Enemy of the State says:

          you are absolutely right Henry
          I got a head of myself

        • Cynicles says:

          The next one, on the near horizon, will be a bail-in.

          The proletariat with debt, yeah, they will still have to cover their own hides.

          The only group help accountable these days are the law abiding citizens. That excludes near all politicians, big companies, illegals, many special interests et al.

  3. flee says:

    I have a solution.

    We waterboard them with dirty bong water.

    Then ask them if they have a different opinion.

    Because we know the truth.

    Potheads are destroying this nation.

    More likely they want DNA samples to dial in their lab created flu/cancer bugs to eliminate undesirable aspects of the population. They don’t seem to white friendly to me.
