I wanna know where I can get it for $100-140 an ounce! I haven seen prices like that since the 90s.

I hope that people will finally start voting for issues like this so that our voices are heard, rather than those of a powerful and vocal minority. It is crazy that it has taken so long to legalize marijuana for medical use. Why should the government stop somebody from smoking a pipe or using a glass bong? It shows the disconnect between the people and the law. Freedom is only possible when everyone votes and takes responsibility for democracy.

All this talk of legalizing pot, have you no compassion for all the people in Central and South America you're putting out of work?

Maybe its more compassion for the families of the tens of thousands killed by drug violence just since 2006.

Lets see you give med. weed to people for medical reasons. you had better make weed legal then because it won't look so good when someone is arrested selling the government weed on the street for a nice profit. It's one way to stimulate the economy.

how could one profit with the gov't weed prices?

If weed actually helped keep the status quo, there would be no motive to outlaw it. Anything that fosters a mode of life that is relatively slow and unproductive for Western capitalism is a threat to the oligarchs, wouldn't you say?

Where's the dem leadership on this issue of 'free the weed'? Pres. Obama does not support legalization of weed. Why? This is an issue that dems could really use in upcoming elections, but, they prefer to stick to their conservative-leaning , kiss the booooty of the right mantra, that is just feeding a conservative comeback.

Relax and let the rest of the population catch up.

Weed was made illegal over a hundred years ago for polical reasons. It has been a demon for polical weapons far too long for it to be suddenly recognized as not dangerous.

Plus our legal system have punished too many people over this plant for too long to suddenly turn the boat in the opposite direction.

It is a hash view but true.

I think they must have took the phrase, "No pot to piss in" seriously.

I don't understand the legal ground for Marijuana being illegal. How can the government tell me I can't use this?

It isn't addictive, it doesn't harm me and it doesn't ruin families or lead to violence or crime.

The WAR on drugs has does many of those things though.

Its a safe, natural drug that takes no chemical process to cultivate or produce... How can the government tell me I can't use it. Its like them telling me I can't wear a certain color or eat a certain food... Legalize it!

Thats why millions of people smoke pot illegally in this country.

The American people have proven to be absolutly ungovernable when it comes to stupid, needless laws, and I hope it never changes.

Indeed. This is just like alcohol prohibition of the 20's. It is completely unnecessary and largely ignored.

There is no reason for the ban on smoking pot. It does no more harm than anything else on the planet we do legally every day.

It should be limited because weed, unlike alcohol will give a contact high so where you can smoke needs to be regulated but keeping it illegal is costing us BILLIONS and doing no good at all.

This program has abuse written all over it. There may be people for whom this is an effective medicine but a huge portion of people who use medical marijuana have either exaggerated their condition or would be just as well served with a different medicine.

If it makes them feel better at all why not let them use it?

How dare you look at a dying cancer patient who could find solace in something that isn't doing any harm to anyone and tell him he can't use it because its illegal.

What right does the government have to restrict its use if an adult decides he wants to use it. It doesn't hurt anyone, its cheap, its not addicting... Its just the government and people projecting their idea of morality onto other people when it isn't their right to do it.

"Obviously because there's no roadmap on how to do this, it may require some tweaking over time," said David Catania, a D.C. councilman and the chairman of the city health committee that drafted the law. "We may, in fact, set an example for other states."

I know, I know state program vs. federal program, but it looks like a map to me.

I am sure people will discover all of a sudden that they have a medical problem, and need to get a prescription for pot to help ease their symptoms. A good example maybe not having a job and getting depressed, maybe pot will help. The governments new plan to keep the people happy.

As a cancer survivor your comment is insulting.

Maybe you need one of those useless drugs that big pharma invents conditions for like restless leg syndrome.

Cancer survivor wo didn't need the pot, in fact made me feel worse...so like everything else it should be about the doctor & patient and insurance should cover it if a doctor writes the script, this is not a taxpayer issue, its an insurance issue
