[New Mexico] Senate OK's Medical-Marijuana Bills
Santa Fe New Mexican ^ | 3-3-05 | Steve Terrell

Not one, not two, but three bills that would set up state programs to provide marijuana to patients suffering from certain serious medical conditions won overwhelming bipartisan approval from the state Senate on Wednesday.

If any of the bills makes it through the House & is signed by the Governor, patients suffering from conditions such as cancer, glaucome, multiple sclerosis, certain spinal-cord damage, epilepsy, & HIV-AIDS would be able to use marijuana supplied by the state Health Department.

Sure hope no pathetic drug advocates attempt to use the dying to try and get their "recreational" drugs. That would be pathetic, wouldn't it?

Great, I'd sure hate to see people end up in those nasty orange jumpsuits.

Besides, dying people are bad to use as foils.

The folks who are sick & dying deserve to be allowed to live their lives as pain-free as possible...& those orange jumpsuits should be reserved for REAL criminals, such as those who commit murder, rape, & child abuse.

Sure hope no pathetic drug criminalization advocates attempt to use hysteria over "recreational" drugs to keep sick people from getting the medicine they need. That would be pathetic, wouldn't it?
