To be so warped in ones mental processes (perhaps I am giving them too much credit to suggest any neurons are firing at all) that you would happily band together with other ghoulish individuals to stymie a film’s reception in the eyes of fans, is truly a sad sight, and one that is utterly insensible. However, voting with one’s feet and in turn your wallet is another kettle of fish entirely.

There is little harm, in fact no harm at all, in boycotting a movie, franchise or whatever else because your animadversions have gone so long unheard, and then convincing others to your cause with thoughtful arguments. This is all well and good. I happen to vote with my wallet frequently and in fact should do so more often. If you want a franchise or organisation to change, withholding your cash is perhaps the best way to encourage it. However, what is wholly unacceptable are the acts planned and seemingly already enacted by the aforementioned gang of miscreants. If I’ve not already made it clear, let me attempt to do so again: hurting a film’s reputation in the eyes of audiences, without any intention of seeing said movie, is pathetic, sad, and desperately insipid, no matter how noble you believe your cause to be.

For DC fans among our readership, who are seemingly the driving force behind this gaggle of imbeciles (though, I doubt their authenticity and they are surely condemned by decent folk among the fandom), let me see if I can interest you in the following. If I, as someone who is wholly averse to the direction of the DCEU, but simultaneously holds great affection for Batman as a character, banded together with others who shared my sentiments to maliciously sabotage future entries in the franchise by providing horrible review scores to Rotten Tomatoes, without knowledge of said films, so that less people would in turn view these movies and in hope that Warner Bros. would go back to making Batman films I want to see, what, my friends, would you think of me? Not very much, I imagine. And you would be right to do so.

With all the above being said, it seems to me that these heroic resistance fighters, warring so bravely against the tyranny of Disney, are capable of little impact, their great efforts mostly without consequence. However, the very idea behind it, the very thinking that goes into such an endeavour, should be met with the utmost contempt. And if you happen to be one of these very individuals, I suggest you take a good long hard look in the mirror. Get a grip, find a hobby, read a book, put your energy into something productive. Surely you can conjure some miniscule respect for your time, at least more so than what you have so far demonstrated.

Curiously, the language slamming Schedule I's research roadblocks has been consistently requested by a group whose membership list contains some of the nation's leading anti-legalization advocates .

But while the Senate committee has approved a number of marijuana reform amendments over time -- including measures last month to protect state medical cannabis laws from Justice Department interference and to increase military veterans' access to medical marijuana -- it also recently blocked a proposal to protect banks that work with marijuana businesses from advancing.

And, it also Angara Round Pink Tourmaline Solitaire Infinity Knot Pendant hmLPrLdVf
, the involvement of Indian tribes in the marijuana industry and cultivation of cannabis on public lands in recent reports attached to other funding bills.

In the new report attached to the health agency bill, the committee also seemed to express concerns about the growing number of states that are legalizing marijuanaand theincreasing availability of higher potency cannabis products.

"The Committee is concerned with the rapidly changing landscape regarding the recreational use of marijuana--the effects that the drug can have on brain development; addiction; the long-term health effects in both youth and older individuals," the senators wrote. "The Committee directs NIH to coordinate a multi-Institute approach to increase research related to the effect of increasing delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol levels on the human body as well as the effect of various delta-tetrahydrocannabinol levels on cognitive abilities that are required to, for example, operate motor vehicles."

And, they want federal researchers to resume tests on cannabis seized by law enforcement.

"Without dedicated funding for this activity, the number of analyzed seized samples has plummeted, meaning that available data is no longer current or robust," the report says. "The Committee believes that such research, along with analysis of marijuana and marijuana-derived products sold commercially in dispensaries or online, is essential for informing substance misuse and addiction prevention efforts, public health policy, and law enforcement tactics across the Federal Government."

"The Committee continues to direct NIDA to coordinate efforts with the DEA and other law enforcement agencies to monitor Schedule I marijuana and marijuana-derived products."

But despite the seeming concern about the effect of state legalization, the panel's criticism of Schedule I's roadblocks to marijuana research provides more momentum to the effort to reclassify cannabis under federal law.
