    This is one more thing out of many that I disagree with that I actually agree with. The Federal government should not be stepping on the toes of States rights. Currently there are 13 states that allow for medical marijuana use with people who obtain written notice from their doctors to treat chronic conditions.

    We need to spend DEA funds to track down crack-cocain--herion & meth dealers.

    Your thoughts?

    Bullshit.

    We "need" the DEA like we "need" endless foreign military deployments.

    Time to end the idiotic federal "war" on (some) drugs altogether.

    And how much you want to bet flake Dr.s will start upping their marijuana prescriptions... even though smoking is not an FDA approved delivery method and even though there is a tested and true product known as marinol that can be ingested or nebulized.... going to show all of this is not about the medicine, but about the high

    Fuck the FDA too.

    Drinking beer and whiskey is also all about the high.

    After hearing the story from a CW co-worker discuss how she had visited a home where a client had "medically prescribed marijuana" for generic back pain, and said worker found boxes of it in the bedroom, in a bong ready to go next to the bed, another stash under a pile of clothes, and a much larger box in the car...I have determined to request medical marijuana from my PA for generic anxiety (I learned long ago that pot actually makes my anxiety worse, unless I'm completely isolated) and generic back pain.

    I'm not a pot head, haven't been for years, but still...it's so tempting. I find something orgasmic about being able to have pounds of pot in my home legally. Like I said, I don't smoke it, but still.....

    Doing a shot next to someone does not have the risk of passing the intoxication or the other effects over to the second person

    And alcohol does have medicinal uses as just what it is, in it's chemical form... the chemical benefit of marijuana can be had it an approved delivery form without the high... kind of like why we have methadone and not heroin not being prescribed
