Should be legal with prescription for medical ailments. It is the most effective and safest treatment for migraines. Other meds have a great incidence of causing strokes. It’s sad that meds that are legal are far worse for you. I blame recreational users for limited access to those who actually need it for medical reasons.

What publication is due on the newstand at 4:14?

Does the member of the gang now work for the DOH in HI or the FBI and swear that BO told all of them he was “Born in Kenya”?

I’ve had three questions...Can seventeen more be asked?

Oops now down to sixteen...

When I think of Horace Greeley, I think of the letter of Lincoln’s that he published where Lincoln told Greeley that he would emancipate all slaves or emancipate none if it would save the Union.

Is your post simply passing on the following.....

Rally To Save Harborside Health Center July 23 in Oakland, CA

Last October CA’s four US Attorney’s announced a crackdown on medical cannabis, saying they would target organizations using medical cannabis as a shield for criminal activity and profiteering. But the list of those actually targeted reads like an honor role of the most legitimate and legally compliant medical cannabis providers in the state.

On July 9th, Harborside Health Center was added to that list, when federal agents taped a notice of property forfeiture to our front doors. This action was a major escalation by US Attorney Melinda Haag, who previously had said she would focus enforcement actions on dispensaries that too close to schools, or out of compliance with state law.....

Snip....

Who cares what happens in Oakland?

My guess would be yes. Most boys that age with access to large amount of drugs in Hawaii would be surrounded by good looking female groupies.

I think this is a club of homosexual drug users.

Well, Obama has made a big effort to excite the gay vote and illegal alien vote. I predict that he is now going after the pot head vote.

Am I right? Give me a hint.

A User’s Guide To Smoking Pot With Barack Obama

As a member of the Choom Gang, Barry Obama was known for starting a few pot-smoking trends. The first was called “TA,” short for “total absorption.” To place this in the physical and political context of another young man who would grow up to be president, TA was the antithesis of Bill Clinton’s claim that as a Rhodes scholar at Oxford he smoked dope but never inhaled.

Along with TA, Barry popularized the concept of “roof hits”: when they were chooming in the car all the windows had to be rolled up so no smoke blew out and went to waste; when the pot was gone, they tilted their heads back and sucked in the last bit of smoke from the ceiling.

When you were with Barry and his pals, if you exhaled precious pakalolo (Hawaiian slang for marijuana, meaning “numbing tobacco”) instead of absorbing it fully into your lungs, you were assessed a penalty and your turn was skipped the next time the joint came around. “Wasting good bud smoke was not tolerated,” explained one member of the Choom Gang, Tom Topolinski, the Chinese-looking kid with a Polish name who answered to Topo.

In case nobody can figure out why Obama is cracking down on pot, then follow the money. Specifically Big Pharm $$$$. There is a lot of money to be made from the medicinal marijuana business and the Big Pharm companies don't want the medicinal marijuana dispensaries to siphon it away. Thus the crackdown. Oh, and it wouldn't surprise me a bit if one of the prices for Big Pharm support for ObamaCare was a promised crackdown on the medicinal marijuana dispensaries. Note that the crackdown began when the Bamster start to need the campaign bucks.

I admit I couldn't figure out WHY the crackdown until I went to the basic motive for Obama: $$$$. When you follow the money you can always find Obama's motives.

Put the blame where the power lies - with the pols and bureaucrats who use recreational users as an excuse to block medical use.

You mentioned Horace Greeley - just Horace Greeley, so I figured it might have something to do with his being editor of the Times way back when... Plus, you had an exact time (like the embargo stamp on articles and press releases). Anyway, you shouldn’t sell yourself short in regards to your writing, but I admit I was having a hard time figuring out WHY you would WANT to have an article in the NYTimes! LOL

Not necessarily just Big Pharma, either... You have to take into consideration his ties with the Sinaloa cartel. The cartel doesn’t exactly appreciate LEGAL COMPETITION! The advent of legality in growing marijuana here in the states has taken AWAY some of the power and money from these cartel folks. The gov’t is so involved in the drug trade (and not stopping it) that it’s disgusting.

We also don’t need Big Pharma controlling what is essentially a plant with a very wide variety of uses, and benefits (besides just ingestion/inhalation qualities for medicinal therapy). The “war on drugs” is one of the biggest scams the gov’t has going on today.

His decision to crack down on medical dispensaries is just another ploy to keep his cartel buddies happy. Letting the PEOPLE of this country grow, sell, and dispense marijuana without the NEED for government intervention gives the PEOPLE too much power and money, and takes the power and money away from the Cartels AND the Government.
