    the only people that want it to be illegal are law enforcement because they make money by incarcerating the entire world, and preachers because they get their rocks off looking down their noses. when I see a preacher anymore the first thing that comes to mind is; …………… CHILD MO-LESTER………………. Jesus was humble so they should stick to Jesus’ principles and mind their own business

    Nice to see four people on this site in agreement rather than sniping and name calling.

    The Medical marijuana issue will be INITIATIVE 5 on your November ballot.

    Vote FOR.

    If it is for medical reasons, treat it like any other medicine, Doctor prescribed and pharmacy dispensed, not grown by your neighbor. If you want it for recreational purposes, say so and treat it like alcohol, wine & beer. For recreational purposes, you can grow enough for your own personal use. Read the bill for yourself before you vote for or against.
