I Don't Like Mondays
Putting all out on the table from the getgo, I think pot should be as legal as the many opiods used for pain treatment. The stigma that marijuana has encountered over the years has crossed the border into obscene. I have yet to find a reason that controlled THC or cannabis is a bad idea.
What is a bad idea is
Federal authorities may prosecute sick people who smoke pot on doctors' orders, the Supreme Court ruled Monday, concluding that state medical marijuana laws don't protect users from a federal ban on the drug.
Federal laws exist for the health of commonwealth, and make sense when they are probiting traffic of controlled substances across state lines. In this case, if you live in one of the High Times states, you can grow your own cannabis and ingest it following a doctor's orders. However you are still a target for federal raids and seziures. I think that the Federal government is horribly overstepping its bounds here and is in contravention to the very principles upon which our nation was established.
