Reading such ignorance I had no choice but to tell how I really feel.
Read the Letter: No such thing as 'medical marijuana'
I'm not sure the comment moderator will post my reply or not, so here it is:
I suppose all the scientists and doctors are wrong then Joe? http://maryjanecannabian.blogspot.com/2009/10/international-researchers-reveal.html
Next you'll be saying all this medical marijuana is going to cause black men to step on the shadows of white men - oh wait, that's how Anslinger got cannabis prohibited back in 1937.
Cannabis has been used by humans for medicine since before we even started to record our history, it's only been in the last hundred years that POLITICIANS have outlawed it, not doctors.
Cannabis saved my life - it's not about getting high, it's about trying to live our lives in less pain with fewer side effects - I personally don't want to take meds where the side effect is DEATH.
Cannabis isn't for everybody, but there is no way that it should be outlawed from people who it will help. If you don't believe in it, don't use it. Alcohol is legal but I probably have a drink once a year. Freedom of choice cannot be denied when people's lives are at stake.
Government prohibiting people from ingesting a substance means they own your body. Ownership is slavery. Just the very fact that people are thrown in jail for using it proves that. Prohibition laws are draconian and that is why more and more people are fighting to change these laws, in spite of people like you.
I'd rather go to jail for using cannabis than to merely exist bedridden in pain. I usually pride myself on being a very polite Lady, but from the bottom of my heart, screw you, Joe.
