"Who are the liberals going to sue for multi-millions when habitual marijuana-smoking users develop lung cancer? The government?"

I have not heard of any suits of this sort at this point.I just think people who are suffering should not be denied the right to use the stuff as medicine.I had a good friend who had cancer,and after chemo treatments the stuff enabled her to eat.If someone is really suffering,I say let them have it,it's certainly alot less dangerous than alot of other medicines.

I am not talking about the use of this drug for medical purposes. I am talking about the legalization of marijuana for comsumption by anyone who wants to use it. What are the long-term health risks for habitual users?

This is the issue that is being ignore by those who want to legaize the use of marijuana. There are significant health risks involved.

Liberals want this drug legalized, so my question is, "When thousands of people come down with lung cancer and other ailments from smoking marijuana for 30 years, who are they going to sue?" Since there won't be any big companies like the tabacco companies to sue, does that mean that the federal government will have to pay? This really means the the average taxpayer who doesn't use this drug will have to pay the bill for other peoples' reckless behavior.
