We obviously have issues with Senator Warren on many issues. However we are pleased to see her raising this particular issue. Cannabis, marijuana, pot, shouldn’t be illegal. Pot prohibition is a vestige of a less informed time. In the land of the free lighting up a joint should not be illegal.
But one of the reasons weed remains illegal is because it is by far the most used recreational drug in the USA and as such the pursuit of it gives law enforcement something to do. (I mean why waste our time going after murderers and rapists?) Another reason is, I believe anyway, because pot is a very cheap and effective medicine for many ailments. The painkiller industry isn’t too hip on you growing your own (non-physically addictive) medicine in your back yard….
“Both chambers of the Louisiana Legislature have now approved medical marijuana legislation that seeks to give certain patients who need it access to the drug. The House of Representatives OK’d the measure Thursday (June 4), by a vote of 70-29.”
