    Exactly everyone wants to see pot completely legalized and this is a step in the right direction.

    Amazing that some people in Congress realize we have a Tenth Amendment.

    “High” hopes for this bill. I am sure the big pharma’s will spend the right cash to beat it. Yes Barney is a liar, but can anyone provide me the name of any elected A hole that tells the truth. Our government has been lying about MJ, since 1937. I do not trust any of them. But I give Barney credit; he at least has the wavels to stick his ass on the line for our cause. To those of you who oppose our views, you are entitled to do so; it is your right. But please get informed, get the facts, sit down with a MJ consumer, and ask them any questions you wish. We are not just a bunch of teenage stoners, we are doctors, lawyers, teachers, politicians, ceo’s, cfo’s, law enforcement, the lists go on and on. So before you spout off get the real truth and facts, then form your educated opinion. I myself smoke each and every day, I am a very productive part of my community, and I have a seven figure bank account. Not to bad for a stoner from Il., and my wealth was obtain 100% legit.

    I see a major issue with a bill like this being passed into law and that is the same issue I have with loose regulation of perscriptions of controlled substances. With a ‘script’ and enough savvy any person can feul their addiction. You see the popular vote because of the “stoner” aspect of marijuana. You see the point being blurred because of this too. It sounds like people are excited because they can have an excuse to grow ‘weed’ and say it is for medicinal use. People want to deregulate our system because of loop holes like this and the supposed freedom ‘it’ takes.

    If medical marijuana was to be manufactured by pharm. companies and controlled like narcotics and distributed like they are supposed to, then I highly support this bill. But if it is to give a bunch of idiots a pass on getting high, then I say vote this bill down.

    I dont understand the patent issue for ‘weed’ either. This is irrelevent because it is a schedule I drug. Period point blank. It is what it is. You do not have to ‘own’ the rights to weed to grow it. It is not like they have dumped time, research and development into marijuana, they do not have to recoup that money as would a drug that would have a patent.

    It should be legal for medicinal use nationwide.
    Substance abuse and medical value are not the same by any means. For example there are many, many current pharmaceutical drugs prescribed and sold daily that are abused. Drug abusers and ill patients using the same drug can not be compared. Someone having a legitimate health need for the drug simply can not be put in the same category as an addict or drug abuser.

    It should be legal for medicinal use nationwide. It is a criminal offense for officials or executives of the U.S. government to direct or conspire to wage a deliberate campaign of misinformation, omission of fact, and outright lies with our tax dollars. Taxpayers pay $50,000.00 per year for every person in jail. It is time to stop punishing those that this is the only medicine that works for them, especially those that can not tolerate the pharmaceutical chemicals, which are far more damaging to the body and any amount of cannabis could ever do.

    See Run from the Cure – the Rick Simpson story (this man cured hundreds of cancer patients with strong cannabis oil) on you tube.com http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0psJhQHk_GI
    For some patients it is the only thing that works. Must we all leave our homes and move to other states? It should be legal nationwide!

    It should be legal for medicinal use nation wide!
    The DEA (along with other government officials, executives, departments and offices) can stop committing the criminal offense of officials or executives of the U.S. government to direct or conspire to wage a deliberate campaign of misinformation, omission of fact, and outright lies with our tax dollars and change the schedule, realizing without a medical need and valid prescription it would still be a crime they can pursue, along with all the other substances that are abused. It would be grand if they could eradicate cocaine, heroin and methamphetamines from this nation. Changing the schedule might give them the time and manpower to focus on the truly dangerous drugs that do in fact cost lives and the real criminals instead of so much concern over ill patients with no alternative.

    Additional Fact : The Cannabis plant contains more than 60 cannabinoids, 66 have been found to date. Marinol has 1 cannabinoid which is not effective on everything. The other cannabinoids have great healing properties that science is just beginning to understand but years away from developing a synthetic compound in attempts to reproduce the natural. Many ill patients can not tolerate the pharmaceutical chemical drugs.

    Studying what all the fuss is about regarding medicinal use of cannabis I found the main issue – is the psychotropic effect. Research conducted on cannabis based medicine for a wide range of heath issues main attempt is to eliminate these effects. It must be pointed out that there is a wide range of medicines prescribed daily have psychotropic effects. Many of these are on the list of schedules 1 through 5, Marinol is currently placed on schedule 3. Examples of substances on Schedule 4 include Alprazolam (Xanax), Clonazepam (Clonopin), Diazepam (Valium), Lorazepam (Ativan), Phenobarbital, Sibutramine (Meridia) Temazepam (Restoril) Zolpidem (Ambien, Ivadal). It must also be pointed out that Benadryl, available over the counter, as well as many cough medicines also have psychotropic effects. So just what is all the fuss about? No one had ever died from cannabis. Alcoholic beverages cause death on a regular basis yet they are legal for all adults yet also cause psychotropic effects.

    The FDA is responsible for protecting the public health not pharmaceutical companies profits. The FDA claims they concure with the DEA, who claims they are basing their decision on what the FDA states. Neither is willing to take responsibilty. It is like listening to toddlers in a he said – she said, each blaming the other. What a farse! The Controlled Substance Act of 1970 and subsequent scheduling was done before science was even aware the human body has an endocannabinoid system. Congress enacted laws against marijuana in 1970 based in part on its conclusion that marijuana has no scientifically proven medical value. In the last 40 years much scientific documentation has taken place. It must be taken into consideration… It should be legal for medicinaluse nation wide!

    The war on drugs is a fraud and a failure and cannabis is healthy.

  • concernedcitzen 12/19/2010 8:02am

    I’m unsure how to vote on this one. I voted no because I feel this law it too restrictive in some ways for those marijuana users. I feel it is a step backwards in policy. I hope it fails.

    I just changed my vote since I realized it means there would be less federal inference. So I am now in support of this law. I hope it passes.
