If you have any doubt that reefer madness is alive and well in 2012 you need go no further than a scare piece about the dire fate that will befall Massachusetts if the state legalizes medical marijuana. I am not repeating any of their scare crap, but here’s a taste. Enjoy?
“A medical marijuana measure on the November ballot in Massachusetts, which would allow dispensaries, is likely to pass by as much as a 2-to-1 margin, a recent poll found.
Critics slam the proposed Massachusetts law, noting it would allow approved users to carry a 60-day supply of pot but leaves the determination of how much that is to the Department of Public Health. If approved, the law would initially set up 35 pot dispensaries and amend state law to let people with debilitating medical conditions use marijuana for medicinal reasons.
“It has that catch-all provision, ‘for any other medical conditions a doctor deems necessary,’ and that’s what opens us up to abuse and misuse,” said Worcester County District Attorney Joseph Early Jr. “Even the advocates acknowledge that this legislation needs work. That particular phrase is very broad, and it opens it up to a people who says, ‘Oh, I have a sprained ankle, and medical marijuana might help.’ ”
Yes, for the pain, mmj might be appropriate to help with a sprained ankle. Ever had a sprained ankle? Hurts like a bitch.
Okay, go read the crap, HERE, but promise yourself to be brave.
