No grass

Let's see, they can prescribe oxycontin, morphine, all manner of narcotics. What the hell are they afraid of with marijuana?
Stupid, stupid decision. It's between a patient and doctor.

Here's where I'm actually going to agree with the Supreme Court (reminding people that the 3 "activist judge dissenters" were O'Connor, Rehnquist, and Thomas). Drug policies of all schedules from the most severe of drugs to prescription drugs to over-the-counter drugs are determined at the federal level. The majority opinion that determined that medical marijuana was illegal in light of federal law was correct, but they also made sure to note that Congress has every right to change the law regarding medical marijuana. Now let's see if Congress will respond or leave it alone. Congress is more like an overpaid, hysterical paperweight, though.

Melon is right. Although O'Connor's dissent was really interesting.

Okay, then it is a stupid ass policy. Insufficient pharmaceutical profit, I guess. I just never understood the big deal about grass.
Will read the dissent.

It's stubbornness, more than anything. Whole generations of people have been taught that marijuana is evil and that legalizing it would be a "gateway" to harder, more clearly dangerous drugs. To legalize it even at this most banal of levels would be an admission that they were wrong all these decades. They won't do that.

It just fries my puny mind, though. I've seen firsthand people who have been on prescription drugs for so many years now having so many serious health problems created by those very drugs, and here's this herb that is basically harmless for people who are really, really suffering and bedridden and it does alleviate their pain.

I had a friend who was in so much pain from her breast cancer that she deliberately overdosed on the prescription morphine.

It just makes me so angry.

The Supreme Court did not take evidence regarding profit and loss of the pharmaceutical industry.

It is a simple matter of federalism. State law cannot supercede Federal law.

Up here our govt grows the stuff in Flin FLon, Manitoba. In an old bunker!

People arent using it as much because it isnt nearly as strong as the stuff you get from BC.

A couple of weeks ago on a flight to Oakland, I sat next to a person who ran a medical marijuana retail outlet. She described it as a very lucrative business with a lot of risk. The businesses are run on a cash basis and work on referrals from select doctors.

California should have thought through the regulatory scheme before making it legal for sale.

I think that if medical marijuana can possibly be used as a cure for something....then it should always be allowed to be used. Just like anything else, if it cures somethin', then use it.
