Medical (And otherwise) Marijuana

The wonderful Federal Government has done it again. It has gone against the wishes of the masses and, with it's iron fist, ruled that states do not have the right to make their own laws about medical marijuana. That is when the vile weed is used to treat people with nasty diseases, and other conditions, sometimes terminal. Many patients report that smoking a little doobie, now and then, makes them feel better.

Your friendly, neighborhood Federal Government does not care.

The problem is... we brought this on ourselves. People were getting busted for illegal pot and the penalties varied from state-to-state. We demanded that there be some sort of unification of the laws. The Federal Government did just that.

Now we are stuck.

The Feds will have to unmake the law, that is allow the states to rule, again. It will not be an easy sell. The Federal Government loves to take power. They rarely give it back. I can see it now, any state that does not comply with the Federal Laws against marijuana use, for whatever reason, will lose millions of dollars in Federal highway money.

Have you had enough, yet?

Be careful, or I'll have you thinking like a Libertarian!

Power To The People!

Hey, isn't the lesson to go to your Reps and Senators and tell them you want the Federal Law that they have enacted changed?

There is a Federal Law on the books which the Supreme Court chose to uphold.

So everyone, put your efforts where it will do the most good.

I was glad to find out that my favorite show hosts (You and Matt) have blogs. Sometimes reading things brings much more clarity to your opinions.

Legalize pot and tax it. Man made Booze and God made grass. Who should we trust? Today I am clean and sober. I have walked the walk. I could go on for days on this topic.
