The War on Drugs is like every other war - useless, destructive and disruptive.

Let markets work and free people prosper.

I wonder if the proprietor of the "joint" attended business school at Oaksterdam University in downtown Oakland,CA?

I voted for medical marijuana when it passed a few years ago in WA. This was a return to the days when doctors prescribed cannibas to patients for pain releif.

Doctors have always been able to prescribe cannabis, or more correctly it's extracts, for medicinal purposes. Marijuana is not an effective at suppressing pain:

Active Ingredients In Marijuana Found To Spread And Prolong Pain

"Medical marijuana" is just a backdoor path to legalization.

Anon., I find myself in the awkward position of defending marijuana and its deriviative cannibas. Here is a link to a medical site for CA, OR & WA with doctors and clinics for treating among other things seveve pain.

I write awkward, because I am fearful that the legalization of cannibas/marijuana could lead to the unfortunate acceptance of narcotics in U.S. society.

Since since time immemorial people have wanted to hide from their lives of quiet desperation in some manner or or other, we must recognize that narcotics are already accepted in American society. Its just that a lot of folks get them from a physician, uppers, downers and the like from the convenient corner drug doc. Why not allow people to use drugs that mellow them out, and tax the usage, to provide drug treatment, rather than spending gobs of money putting folks in jail for possession. The crime wave should not be a surprise because we had one in the 1920s in the US over Prohibition. If you legalize you drive the crime to other sources, likely driving a lot of people out of crime, and saving all the money spent on drug enforcement to go after the mortgage fraudsters.
Lots of people want to escape their lives.
