My position hasn't changed. I am all for sick people getting what they need. That being said, the whole linkage between pot legalization and the ill is a ruse. No one wants to deal with the issues legalization in the two places it has been tried, California and Colorado honestly. In both places, it has been a disaster.
They are not the only ones. I think all you dopers need to think about the carnage you are wreaking on society before pushing this further.
Sure sounds like you are still hung-up about the medication itself and not the goal of treating the ill.
It's not a ruse...you just don't accept the significant, positive effects marijuana can have on those who are suffering.
It has not been a "disaster" in either CA or CO, unless you've redefined the term to suit your bias.
What "carnage" are you blathering about...?! How is "society" worse off, in your estimation?
What, exactly, is Your Problem...!?!
If you don't think legalization has been a disaster in California and Colorado, you are willfully ignorant. both places have had enormous difficulties, and it has fueled the illegal drug trade as well.
You think education on a subject is time consuming, try ignorance.
