Well stated, however it will fall on blind eyes; your patience is far beyond my capacity for tolerance and I applaud you for it.Lets take your scenario.
The man takes a grevious injury and is spurting blood and it seems every few minutes even more blood starts pouring out.
Now, yes, you need to get more blood into the body.
However JUST getting blood into the body is not going to "rescue" the body, because it will just bleed it all back out again. All it is doing is prolonging the issue.
Thus why some are arguing that Pot isn't going to magically "rescue" California's economy all on its own.
Now lets keep going to further explain peoples rational.
So you do the blood transfusion, new blood is in the body but its still coming out at a bad clip.
Now, the next step, is STOPPING the bleeding (well, that should've came before the transfusion if possible). But lets say the doctors there, for whatever reason, simply don't have the medical knowledge to actually figure out how to successfully stop the bleeding.
This is the issue of some other posters in here. Essentially, that the politicians in California do not have, in this case the will, to do the massive spending cuts that would need to be done simultaneously to stop the bleeding.
Finally, in your analogy, our patient is STILL not out of the woods because we haven't addressed the underlining illness that has caused him to bleed from all over his body. If he goes untreated he may be well for a while but soon enough he's going to start bleeding again.
In this case, people talking about this in this thread that say that Marijuana alone isn't going to Rescue California's economy basically is of the belief that the politicians and the laws in Cali make it so that the root causes that made this happen stay in place.
So to "save" this person that is having blood flow out of them is to not only give them a transfusion, but to close the wound, and then solve the underlining issue. If all of those things aren't done, then its setting the person up for death again...it just depends if its soon or a little later.
So what they're saying is the transfusion alone, Marijuana and Hemp alone, is not going to "Rescue" anything unless some significant changes happens at a law and governmental level...which they appear to believe won't be the case.
