Isn't one of the reasons possibly how absolutely horrible and idiotically easy it is to get pot legally - even without a disease? My buddy in Glendale has a neighbor self medicating from the dispensary due to "depression" and gets a script for it and has for the past 4 years or so. I mean literally, you can go to a marijuana friendly doctor, nurse practitioner, or anyone who can write a script and get pot for anything.
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
This an end-run around states' rights, a nod to lobbyists for big pharma, and the job-protection act for tens of thousands of federal enforcement personnel. It also guarantees that the trillion-dollar drug cartels will be doing business as usual, along with all the blood and death that entails, for the foreseeable future. If marijuana was legalized, crime cartels would take a billion dollar hit, and be crippled. If all drugs were decriminalized, crime cartels around the globe would instantly implode.
One thing the feds are consistent about is protecting the necessity of their own existance.

At least now it appears that there can be an appeal and actual rulings.
You can bet your ass I will be at the polls, but this may well be the straw that has broken the camel's back for me. Assuming it's Romney v Obama, I'm strongly considering voting independent. I will however vote Obama over a few potential candidates I will leave unnamed. Don't assume all liberals (or conservatives for that matter) will vote straight ticket regardless of political climate.

there is a Federal program that distributes marijuana cigs. to a few hundred patients around the country.

I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.
Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.
