There is also a fundamental issue here. Are we really going to say that as adults in this country, we are so far-gone in our cognitive rationale that we forgo our personal responsibility, and actually need the daily choices of what we do/do not ingest to be delegated to us by and extrinsic rule? That is what we are saying, not to mention this rule that was willing accepted generations ago was only through a barrage of misinformation and campaign propaganda. We have had time to delineate the facts.The medical community has numerous and robust clinical data showing clearly the health benefits (as well as the risks) associated with marijuana usage. This has been blatantly ignored by the zealous media-frenzied cries for the War on Drugs.Yet deaths in this country via pharmaceutical prescription drugs are at an all-time high, such that it's a topic of major concern in the heath community - as it should be.Can we please focus our attention to violent offenders and restore to productive, tax-paying, Constitutional-loving, American adults their natural born right to govern their own bodies, and follow (or ignore) the advice of our medical professionals!
Rep. Parker:Medical marijuana also contradicts federal law, yet seventeen states - and even Washington, D.C. - have been passing such laws since 1996. Clearly, sensible marijuana reform is an issue where the states are going to have to lead. I urge you, a state representative, to join your local colleagues in exhibiting true leadership. Yes on I-502.Thanks,MichelleSpokane
