  • These are huge exaggerations being stated as facts. By the people you trust.

  • Jerome Adams is a puppet of big pharma. Also this man's view of his own community, based on this and his comments relating to vaccination ("tell ya big daddy") is utterly patronizing and abysmal.

  • I do not agree with you Sir!

  • "ThErE's No SuCh ThInG aS mEdIcAl OpIuM" — Sergeon General?? Who the hell appointed this guy…

    Oh wait, I forgot Percs, Oxy, and Fetty, don't exist. That would really suck if you got into a serious car accident, and say, cracked your ribs, ruptured your spleen, or shattered your femur. Maybe they could make some sort of severe pain relief meds. Just spit-ballin' here.

  • Wrong. Great Britain did a study of smokers (minimum of 20 years) cigarettes and pot (marijuana) . People who only smoked cigarettes got lung cancer 10 times more often than non smokers. People who smoked both got lung cancer only 5 times more often. People who only smoked pot got cancer less than non smokers. Marijuana is a great anti-cancer substance. It is the only substance that can be taken to provide relief (buzz) that does not have to be synthesized (pills) cooked (alcohol) or made/cooked in someone's bathtub (cocain, meth). It grows anywhere and is 100% natural. It is completely non-addictive (only mental not physical), and is the ONLY known substance to stimulate appetite in people with disease like cancer where the cancer drugs ruin a patients appetite. How many people you know (men particularly) get a few drinks, especially whiskey in them, and the first misunderstood word they are ready to fight? How many people you know smoke pot and get into a fight? How many drunk people drive causing accidents and fatalities? How many pot smokers drive high only to be pulled over for doing 20 mph in a 45 mph zone, and causing few if any accidents? Ben Franklin made the comment:"Marijuana is proof God loves us". I agree.

  • You can't tell this dudes never blazed it

  • But yet he will tell you to take Prozac because its the most effective way to treat you while it gives you suicidal thoughts and thoughts of shooting up a school

  • Big Pharma must have paid him off like they did with the AMA. The Dept of HHS since 2003 have owned the patent #6630507 to cannabis' cannabinoids for medical uses.

  • This man is crying for us.

  • I feel like not a single one of you actually listened to this man. Potheads get triggered as soon as there is a conversation about the negatives of marijuana. He’s making excellent points.

  • COMPENSATE FEMALES OF USA FOR ABUSE MALES HAVE DONE TO THEM AND THEIR OFFSPRING.

  • USA ARE SERIAL KILLERS. MULTIPLE ABORTIONS ON DEMAND. FEMALES STILL TRYING TO BE DECLARED EQUAL TO MALES. UNBORN HUMANS HAVE NO RIGHTS OR PROTECTION AT ALL. PLANET EARTH IS UNEDUCATED. GAS LIGHTING OUT OF CONTROL. AM RADIO MEN FINALLY NOT TOO CHICKEN TO REPORT THE TRUTH.

  • PENISE ENGORMENT PILLS VS PAIN PILLS BOTH HABIT FORMING.

  • SMOKERS PAID PUBLIC SCHOOLS IN NEVADA IBM COMPUTORS. BY SMOKING THE CIGARETTE TAXES. YEA WE HARD CORE SMOKERS HAVE A BEEF WITH USA. BIDEN WANTS MENTHOL TO STOP SELLING. TWO FACED MEN. MENTHOL HELPS WITH SMOKERS COUGH. WAR NOW, SMOKERS VS NON SMOKING HUMANS. I LIKE AND NEED TO SMOKE. SMOKERS HAVE RIGHTS. BIG TOBACCO. BIG REVENUE FROM WEED SALES. NEVADA ISN'T STUPIED. JUST MALICIOUS. USA CAN'T DO MATH MUCH LESS MAKE CHANGE. TRUTH HURTS.

  • I grow my own organic, tax free, and unregulated pure 100% American marijuana.

  • there are a couple of US government agencies that would disagree with that.

  • Contherned for thith counthry methical marijuana.roll it intho a thiggarette and thmoke it.thocial juthtice thkills.🤣🤣🤣

  • How to become a surgeon General
    I'm curious

  • All those puppets clapping in the beginning…. This dudes a drug war surgeon general… high brass like this will do their best to stop the military from having access to marijuana. Thankfully, new President, new administration that doesn’t pander to 40 year old drug war propaganda

  • He is incorrect about the comparison between a glass of wine and a bottle of grain alcohol it's more comparable to the difference between a glass of wine and a mixed drink nobody is taking a gram of shatter or gram of concentrate and ingesting that whole gram or half a gram or a quarter gram. A marijuana user is going to use whatever amount of physical marijuana they need to get to the dosage and they're going to use the same dosage every time whether they use a dosage that is very weak or a dosing method that is very strong they're going to use it till they get to their potential particular dose but they're not going to use a higher dose just because they've got stronger what concentrated cannabis.
    People that drink alcohol do not decide how many drinks they're going to consume they decide how much alcohol they're going to consume and just because alcohol is available as liquor versus just wine or beer does not make the difference of whether the public gets drunk off of it or not

  • Why do the US gov allows cigarettes to stay legal if it causes cancer then… I'm calling bs this is still war you are fighting for Former President Nixon

  • Nothing is medical then

  • this guy is such a joke

  • This guy sounds so ignorant I can't listen to him. He just does not sound intelligent at all. IS he a real doctor?!?

  • so "you don't talk about medical opium"…except for the prescribed opioids that many medical cannabis patients are using cannabis to lessen their addiction to…the reason that people have to crumble it up and smoke it or put it in to a brownie is because people like this man support the classification of this and other plants as a schedule I drug so that their benefits cannot be researched by any organization that receives public funding; and with the messed up way that our universities are these days, you can not seriously compete as a research institution without fitting into this category somehow. the DEA is the "muscle" of an organized crime racket that has a monopoly on the drug market.
    the war on drugs has never been about public health, it has been used as a tool, by those who see people that are different from them and want a way to use the government to throw them in jail. so yes the problem is the law, which gives racists a tool to turn the racism and bias that they have in their hearts in to laws that oppress minority groups.

  • Lol this man silly as hell, comparing a dab to a pint of alc??? Fr bro?

  • This guy is a puppet 😂

  • There’s no “Medical opium” but yet there’s an opiod addiction crisis going on in America interesting

  • it's said that medical cannabis has mind expanding properties which stimulate free thought…. So in other words, mind control doesn't work well (or at all) on those who use Cannabis. Did you know that Cannabis is the #1 NO NO to the global elites? After all they wouldn't want their minions thinking for themselves now…

  • my mothers marijuana? hilarious …. what a disgrace to all humans. marijuana has been around longer than this idiots mother…

  • Tell that to the people that are cancer free now because of cannabis.

  • Typical Dump appointment. A Dumptard.

  • Holy shit, this guy is a moron.

  • he sounds like his mom manipulated him wen he was young now the government does the same to his booty hole . he looks and sounds like a puppet

  • Big pharma boy is doing a great job.

  • This clown is allegedly a doctor and stated "we don 't talk about medical opium" but doctors do prescribe morphine and codeine for pain management which is a derivative of opium. https://www.drugs.com/illicit/opium.html and people are believing this guy with this covid -19 crap? GTFOH!!!

  • LOL this guys a meat puppet. clueless. people like him are the reason its not allowed to be studied more openly to allow for the health benefits to be recognized and acknowledged , it clearly works . yet he doesn't mention alcohol , opiates , prescription abuse , or alcohol . odd. . . .

  • Oh, and IF COURSE WE DONT SAY MEDICAL OPIOD… NO NEED TO SINCE IT IS ALREADY MEDICALLY USED AND PERSCRIBED! I don't even have a college degree and I know that!

  • You are a FOOL if you believe what this guy says… Yes, it's stronger so we can USE LESS… Pregnancy, and during brain development are special circumstances.. I use a LOT of opiods for pain control. I USED to use marijuana illegally and was able to GREATLY REDUCE my opioid usage… Since I have quit marijuana I have gone back to full usage of my PERSCRIBED OPIODS AND I FEEL WORSE! This guy has already shown he is a liar and another trump pawn (he SAID our OBESE, fast food and aderol addicted president is HEALTHIER THAN HE IS!) and to believe him is to believe what comes out if Trump's behind, oops… Mouth! Watch the old movie "Uncle Tom's Cabin" and then judge for yourself what this fool is!

  • "We need THC!!"

  • This guy is an idiot. You don't know what to do with the opioid crisis so Mr military goes after cannabis. Marijuana is just common slang. Then tighten pain prescriptions to the point where it's to hard to get them. Yet heroin runs the streets. And genius the cannabis is already in every neighborhood. Hiding behind that uniform. No experience in science.

  • Awesome Man

  • Who is this clown? Had to bring “racism” into it, smh…

  • I dont think this guy is apart of the military cuase if he was he would now that weed helps people with PTSD every year and prevents suicides

  • Thank you Surgeon General for telling the truth about the dangers of marijuana. The problem is you are talking to a country of pot heads who have lost the ability to reason.

  • Of course not we just wanna get high, this is where we are at in this country deal with it, next up is to legalize cocaine

  • Did anyone else notice he brought race into this?

  • This dude needs to smoke!

  • Complete moron. This guy is an absolute idiot. Answer this, how is it that a plant that absolutely works, worse than opiates for pain? Are you kidding me? Amazing he is a doctor, proves you don't have to be smart to be one. Tell all the patients with debilitating pain to do what now?

  • So funny Israel is exporting medical marijuana today and I am guessing that is a sign that it is probably not such a bad thing.
