American Medical Assn. Reverses Pot's Class I Classification

I came across an interesting article whilst browsing today.

Folks, this is THE American Medical Association.

I was living in that city when the meeting took place. I vaguely remember some reference to them being in town, but not much else-- not surprising being as how I waste virtually no time letting the mainstream media [mis-]inform me about "news". But this...

This should have been plastered ALL OVER the place-- the front pages, the headliner in local AND national newscasts. The cover of High Times...

No shock to me that is wasn't given it's proper "Finally! Some sense!" bent. More so that, being deeply ensconsed in the bible belt, there was no loud, smacking-of-uneducated/miseducated-'the-man-from-Nazareth-will-turn over-in-his-grave' cry of outrage.

Be interesting to see, now the vote is in, where exactly it does go. But that won't be reported, either. I suppose to those who already know how positively useful, in so many ways, the herb is will continue on reaping the benefits.

And as for healthier-than-smoking methods of consumption?

It's not like there's a shortage of info!

Enjoy, folks, and Slainte!


P.S.-- Feel free to spread the news. The "News" won't!

I have long maintained, Sir, that medical was the platform for legalizing. For reasons too many to go into here, I believe marijuana should be legalized - among other things it's such a useful plant, it seems a shame to waste it.

I am interested in seeing where this goes.

Shade and Sweetwater,

Just think of all the money the imperial government could rake in if it were legalized and taxed like cigarettes.
