    Not really the same thing. Big "pharma' is actually viewed as makers of medicine by most people. While potheads are viewed as junkies and view so-called medical marijuana as nothing more than a scam so recreational pot smokers can toke weed without being hassled by the cops.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Well that sounds horrible, people able to take responsibility for their own bodies, with no fear of the "cops"!

    Someone call out the national guard!

    People have been smoking marijuana since as far back as history has been written. There is no logical, rational reason for keeping this drug illegal, other then to continue to fund the state, through fines.

    I could see if it was a criminal organization...but where's the harm (other than a perceived shot to one's image) would come from accepting such a donation?

    Still, he noted, food and monetary donations are very much needed because of the poor economy.

    Solberg said he was at first unaware of the nature of Munday's businesses. He said he finally realized, once he got off the phone with him, that they were medical marijuana shops.

    He said he does not support them and their proliferation.

    "They are all over," Solberg said, calling them a "pestilence" and "travesty" in the community.

    Solberg said he believed the food offer was made because the marijuana collective was "trying to validate themselves."

    I think they should accept it, but they are free to deny it as well. But as I said, it does seem to be an issue of beggars being choosy.

    "But Ganja j said to them, “They do not need to go away. You give them something to smoke.”

    And they said to Him, “We have here only five doobies and two buds.”

    He said, “Bring them here to Me.” Then He commanded the multitudes to sit down on the grass.

    And He took the five doobies and the two buds, and looking up to the collective, He blessed and broke and gave the pot to the dispensaries; and the dispensaries gave to the addicts.

    So they all smoked and were stoned, and they took up twelve baskets full of the dope that remained.

    Now those who had smoked were about five thousand addicted men, besides women and children."

    Right now (in a secret underground cave) Secret Government micro biologists in conjunction with and financed by BIG pharmaceutical companies are putting the finishing touches on ultra microbes released through chem trails systematically devouring THC crystals on marijuana plants world wide rendering them "bunk".

    You know what ive always found amusing though,

    Douchebags who go out of their way to bother typing in a forum or chat to announce to everyone that they are smoking pot or getting drunk.

    Its like WHOAAAH ITS SOOOOO COOOOL I GOTTA TELL EVERYONE MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN.

    I wonder if those who are busy telling us they are doing these fun and neat vices are only doing so because they think its "cool".
