> Paul Ryan Says Feds Shouldnt Interfere With Legalized Medical Pot
What’s Ryan trying to do with such talk, win an election?
This should help a lot of Ron Paul people, twenty-somethings and libertarians take a second look and perhaps vote for Romney/Ryan.
sure. legal drugs pimped out by drug companies and doctors are ten times worse than pot.
“And ever since Obama was elected, hes sent Eric Holder and the DOJ after marijuana clinics in every state that allows it by law.”
The only good thing the commie bastard ever did in his life!!!!!!
“The only purpose for which power can be rightfully exercised over any member of a civilized community, against his will, is to prevent harm to others.

Kiddie porn is not manufactured with consenting adults. I find you guilty of using false straw man arguments to justify your irrationality.
Any coating would delay or diminish the effect, perhaps even making the drug miss its target in the digestive system, entirely.
Look it up.
I know what I am talking about, this Thalidomide is dangerous stuff to unborn babies.
Come on now.
I'm not a libertarian, really, but you might as well have wrote "I have an irresistible urge to appear extremely foolish tonight."
“....he personally doesnt approve of medical marijuana laws. But he said that states should have the right to choose whether to legalize the drug for medical purposes.”
THAT is my position, exactly. Good for Ryan.
Ryan's going after his OWS votes.
Thalidomide was a well known scandal, but the idea that skin contact with a pill is teratogenic is new to me. That suggests, chillingly, that a terrorist could use a similar mechanism to poison a crowd that hadn’t even been exposed to enough stuff to know it had been poisoned.
And why would male users of the medicine have to be warned on the record never to use it if pregnancy was possible... that is stupid.
It can’t cost that much to produce the medicine. It has to be a liability issue where the insurance is a thousand times more costlier than the chemical.
I agree with Ryan on the principle that no citizen should be caught between conflicting state and federal laws. I am sure there are other instances where federal and state laws conflict, but you have to start somewhere.
Each order requires a recorded telephone conversation and clearance from the drug company before the pharmacy is allowed to release the order.
Yes, it is very dangerous.
My point, of course, is that pot is not as dangerous.
I've seen, up close, the honest benefits of what medical marijuana provided to a long time friend who was dying of terminal cancer.
I'll say no more other than Ryan's right. Let the States decide for themselves. The Federal Government is too far "out of control" to understand a personal situation like death.
In fact, they're so far "out of control" America is now truly in jeopardy.
All the stupid warnings are because of the lawyers. What happens then if the patient dies. Superfund site? Ridiculous.
Why do you trust the Federal Government more than the States to see things your way?
I found the NIH info here:
It's in in a capsule. The threat of contamination is really the risk of handling a broken or leaking capsule.
There are many more warnings and restrictions. You have to see a doctor every month to refill the prescription.
If you are a woman that can become pregnant, you have to use two forms of birth control 4 weeks before, during, and 4 weeks after treatment (or abstain entirely from sex).
While you are taking it, all of your bodily fluids are contaminated -- which means that everyone around you must take special precautions.
They’ll let you suicide yourself without a batted eye, but heaven help you if you have some weed to make your death or treatment easier.
Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together... mass hysteria!
Ah, a liquidgel.
If you were a thalidomide patient and you spit on a pregnant woman — could you be convicted of the crime of mayhem?
