    That's the standard BS argument for legalisation. If it is medically helpful then have it only as prescription only and not try to expand it to being recreationally allowed, which we all know is the true goal.

    . Bloomberg, by comparison, may be the candidate that most of the Founders hoped would arise: a wealthy patrician, much like them, who would use his vast resources and influence to defeat what he views as disruptive elements in the nationís political system.

    Which is not itself a completely good solution in the current prescription climate, with the addiction crisis from prescribe-only opiates.

    The fact there is actual debate about whether marijuana should be legal or not while tobacco (which has fewer medical benefits and is much more harmful) is legal seems... dissonant.

    Inanimate objects don't have rights.

    Politics are rarely initially coherent because its a piecemeal system.

    Tobacco isn't an intoxicant.

    The hemp derived CBD oil alone has alleviated more of my pain than anything else I've tried, and from what I understand marijuana would help even more so since THC is a natural anti-inflammatory. I still have a lot of pain, which is why I want medicinal marijuana legalized here. I would never want to smoke it though.

    I hope that hemp may be legalized.
    Alcohol kills more people than any other drug out there and yet it is legal. Marijuana has many medicinal effects and any adverse effects that it may have, none that I'm aware of, pale to those of alcohol. Of course it should be legal to sell and use just like alcohol, and will be eventually.

    From what I've read and the anecdotal stories I've heard it seems that pot can sometimes be much more powerful when consumed through the digestive system (eaten) than the respiratory system (inhaled/smoked). My personal guess is that part of this appears to be due to the fact that it take considerably longer to take effect when eaten leading some to think that they didn't take enough.
