    In the area of NY where I came from, we had a woman who grew it right in front of her house so she could show everyone she wasn't about to hide anything. She had a son who had MS with so much pain he couldn't stand it. She finally discovered MJ was the only that aleviated it.
    She was warned by the PD to remove it or suffer the consequences. She decided to take the latter choice, and continued to grow the MJ. That story was on the front page of a newspaper that covered 5 counties. I said yeah for her, and if my child or other relative I was caring for suffered from excruciating pain to where that was the only thing that would aleviate it, then I would too, without apology!!!!! The only problem I would have is the smell. I can't stand the smell. I'd need some nose plugs or something.

    I'm glad you do, Tom. Personally, it used to give me a sweet taste in the back of my mouth, but now that I have COPD and am on oxygen, it and any other type of smoke cuts my breath right off. But then I'm on oxygen 24/7. Just know I'm not knocking anyone who does like it.

    It's ridiculous that there is even a debate about it. Except that the drug manufactures don't want it, and they probably spend a lot to lobby against it. Weed is good for appetite, anxiety, sleep, depression, pain, Gerd, MS and a multitude of other symptoms and diseases. Not to mention its non-medical uses, clothing, paper, rope, and as an energy alternative. When something doesn't make sense there is probably a "money reason" behind it.

    Alternative energy

    Think of the Happy Cars

    Think of stopping at a redlight jumping out and inhaling the tail pipe exhaust

    Gets rid of Road Rage

    Personally, I'm for decriminalizing it altogether.

    Along with the other controlled substances.

    Ain't nobody's business if I do.

    If I should go and take a notion....

    just look at the coffees now, You have Colombian, Jamaican, Kona, and other names. These were all names for marijuana in my day. Now we know what happens to old pot growers, they switch to coffee. Same names different product.

    The problem that I see is that when it is legalized everyone with a doctor is going to suddenly have a "legitimate" reason for smoking out. GERD, Chronic Fatigue, Restless leg syndrome, bat wing boils etc... I'm sorry but I don't want my nurses and doctors to be hopped up on Mary Jane while working on me. Or my cops, EMT drivers, firemen, accountant, you name it. Once its legalized you will just open the floodgates for people who would never jeopardize their careers now that will start using. To pretend it will only be used for CA and MS patients and the like is naive at best.
