A group of medical marijuana dispensaries has come out against Prop 19, California's "Tax and Regulate Cannabis" initiative to legalize marijuana. Are they misinformed or deliberately lying? I don't know anymore.
The pharmaceutical industry does not want marijuana to be legal. Neither does the alcohol industry, which is spending money to defeat Prop 19. They want a few more dollars for their shareholders, but I want my best friend back.
For some, abusing marijuana may be the doorway through which they delve into more deadly addictions. For others, a marijuana drug conviction will be the doorway through which they embark upon a life of crime.
