31. it's not 'sneaking' anything. People get medical benefit from it AND people should be able to

use it recreationally if they're consenting adults.

Medical use laws highlight the ridiculousness of, say, SWAT teams dragging a terminally ill cancer patient off to prison in his wheelchair for smoking a joint. Which happens way too much.

And yes, if a terminally ill cancer patient should be able to decide what to put into his body, so should the rest of us.


But you are correct, the DEA shouldnt make the call, and they wont, anyway (clearly) because they have a vested interest in the status quo.

Unfortunately congress skews heavily and unfairly towards inherent social conservatism, because although the majority of Americans are progressive and liberal on social issues, those people are concentrated highly in certain congressional districts and under-represented by the inherent structure of the US Senate.
