If marijuana were teated the same as any other drug in the medical community, I would have no problem supporting it

Perhaps one of the differences between the two is that most prescription meds have potentially far worse side effects than marijuana.

Heck, you can't kill youself by smoking too much marijuana. But how many prescription meds can you say the same thing about?

The real difference for the poster is that he is terrified that someone might actually have a pleasant sensation from a substance without the permission of a group of armed people.

Non-prescription medications can kill. There's some kind of number floating around concerning aspirin.

"Can this drug kill you" is not one of the criteria.

Marinol is approved. Sativex is seeking approval. I support these drugs, no problem.

Smoked marijuana is not medicine.
