Marijuana now legal in Michigan?

Well, it passed yesterday. Supposed to be legal now, on a state level. Still federally illegal. So what was the purpose of this passing? Even if it is a good pain alternative, now what?

well,

well, I suppose it's the first step for that state, right? Many (12) other states have already passed such legislation, totalling 13 now, and although I can only relate to CA, I know that here, it means that countless people who benefit from it's use no longer need to live in fear of arrest or jail time for posession or use, assuming they have the proper doctors recommendation etc..

The way I see it, is that it's one more state closer to having all 50 states, and then, how could it possibly be illegal on a federal level if all states have legalized it? Baby steps towards personal freedom. We'll get there.

I think MM is a bit of a

I think MM is a bit of a joke in some respects.....bearing in mind I was a rock 'n roll guitar player most of my life...'nuff said.....I still think it is ridiculous in that you can get a MM card here in So Cal for nothing, just tell your doc you are stressed out and you'll get a card...... I know people who are just stoners and have a card.

Besides I don't see what weed does for pain really. I can see how it might help someone gain weight by getting the munchies...or drink more liquids because of cottonmouth Grin .......but pain control? Not to mention it would suck to hit the bong and get a bad paranoia buzz right before surgery say....yikes...... imagine how many stoned back patients would be on the phone to their doc Call ..." Dude, I 'm freaking out here bro'.....!!!" Laughing 'll take opiates anyday for pain control over KGB from Humbolt County or some other variety of "The Kind".

I would be willing to bet that a large percentage of MM users are just stoners finding a way to get legal weed.

I could well be wrong.....just my opinion.

Clearly you just took a toke

Clearly you just took a toke on some medical weed and got the giggles! Silly

Seriously though....the exception to what I said is cancer and other really heavy conditions, terminal illness and stuff.... I don't mean to make light of what those folks are enduring and if marijuana helps I am all for it.

So yeah, it seems a good thing for those who really need an alternate form of relief from a serious condition.

But it is being abused too. Kids are getting it for mild psychological issues and other dumb reasons, just to get high. That's lame. If they are gonna get baked at least they should have to go score and run the same risks of getting busted the rest of us had to. Grin

i hate this topic

Can you please post an example of a kid who has gotten it for a mild psychological issue, just to get high? You're entitled to your opinions, but all you posted were negative assumptions .

There's a reasonable amount

There's a reasonable amount of research going on surrounding the use of marijuana with autistic children who have violent tendencies, but I hardly consider that a mild psychological disorder.

Personally, I don't consider medical marijuana to be any more of a threat to children than the many other non-controversial drugs currently prescribed to them. I'm routintely appalled by the fact that parents choose to medicate their children for behavior issues rather than making the effort to address the underlying issues directly.

Wow, no need to get all twisted about it.....firstly you noted the humor in my posts....you also noticed how I said I could see the value for people with serious issues....you also noticed how I said I may be wrong and it was just my opinion.

I know a few guys who have MM cards who have no real problems other than what they made up to get the card so they could get high legally.

What about those kids in San Diego that wanted to be allowed to smoke medical weed while attending school? Give me a break! How liberal can we get?

You surely don't think medical marijuana is not being abused...... please.

Anyway, obviously you are very passionate about the topic and seem to be strongly for medical weed so I don't want to argue with you about it.

Again...it was just my opinion....just as you had yours about which states allow it, how it relates to personal freedom etc I don't agree with you but I am not picking apart your statements....your are also entitled to your opinion.

Bionic, I agree about rampant drug prescribing for kids without treating the underlying issues...... I am not so sure pot is the best choice either but that is just my own feeling.

The benifits of it could be argued for day on end personally being a young guy who has done my fair share of substances, medical or recreational doesn't matter if the goverment could find a way to tax it they would legallize it end of story, also in some of the states they passed a law that made under a certain amount "personal use" not a crime so that's a good step who needs to cause a kid problems when they go to college just because they got caught with a joint.

People

do abuse the medical marijuana law. I know this guy that does for a fact and he is nothing more than an umemployed stoner taking advantage of the system in many ways. I don't care that he (or anyone else)smokes it but the fact he claims he needs it for 'medicinal reasons' is purely a joke. Now, I don't think majority of the people who use this law are stoners by any stretch of the imagination but THIS GUY is.

Yeah this can be a hot topic. Personally as an older cat Grin who has been there and done that having been a musician all my life, I would not want my kids to do what I did. Hypocrite, maybe....I smoked cigs also and would hate for my girls to take up smoking.Cigs are great for stress....but look at the side effects.
