    It's a Federal over-reach into a state issue.

    Federal law, when it lists Marijuana as a schedule 1 drug, is plain stupid, and the people in states where medical marijuana is legal are just a little smarter than our federal politicians, and should just be left alone.

    Federal law doesn't seem to be looking out for the best interests of the American people. They seem to be doing what the lobbyist want them to do, which are paid under the table by pharmicutical companies, insurance companies, bankers, etc.. This is to insure that man's inhumanity towards man keeps rolling along. This way, they can keep homeland security in place, slowly taking your personal rights away a little bit at a time, like a frog in a pot of water, They're killing us by degrees & waxing rich while they do it. What happened to the part about "WE THE PEOPLE"? We are the governments bosses. They should be doing what we tell them to do, not some nameless, faceless octillionaire, just so he/she can stay rich at our expense. My personal opinion is that laws should be rewritten to make marijuana legal, or at least decriminalize it & sell it like alcohol is sold. Imagine all the jobs that will create. It'll give American farmers something to grow again. And talk about a happy employee! They'll be early to work everyday. They'll be willingly work late, work weekends, etc. It'll create new taxes that will help towards fixing the economy, too. On the flip side, here's my opinion about meth, crack, coke. ice, heroin, pcp, etc., all those street drugs; No powders, no pills. If it gr...&

On the flip side, here's my opinion about meth, crack, coke. ice, heroin, pcp, etc., all those street drugs; No powders, no pills. If it grows in the ground it's "probably" ok. I can see meth helpful for people with narcolepsy. Cocaine can be helpful in the dentist's office to numb out gums for dental work. And there are a few other uses for some of the other drugs, as long as they're used under medical supervision. As for the street dealers & the cooks - Death row. No ifs, ands, or buts. And not 15 years on death row either. 6 months to a year maximum. I don't want to support a drug dealer in prison for decades with my taxes. If you can't prove your case in that amount of time to gain your freedom, SEE YA! Wouldn't want to BE YA!

    I think it's about time they get on the bandwagon and just allow it already. It is so ridiculous at this point.

    No, it should drop the Schedule I classification ( that's stupid, even cocaine has a Schedule II) and really test it in proper clinical trials and with all species of MJ. That would eliminate all the hearsay and we also find what really works.

    Plus, after all the testing, it can be monitored and sold legally and taxed for revenue like all other products.

    Last I heard, Federal Law trumps State Law.

    IF states can selective start saying they wish to ignore Federal Law... we will have a problem very quickly.

    If states want to permit Marijuana, then they need to change Federal Law FIRST - - at least append the Federal Law, to allow states to provision for Medical Use - making Marijuana simply a controlled substance available via prescription - as opposed to an Illegal Substance.
