    Who is talking about state laws? States that have legalized marijuana.

    Don't loose any sleep over it demsocialist, I seriously doubt the ATF will be kicking down your door during the middle of the night. The Obama administration don't consider you a threat to Alinskism or socialism. But the Obama administration went public and said that all veterans could be terrorist.

    The problem with the term "addictive" is that it has been overused, abused, and re defined. Originally, it meant a substance that could lead to chemical dependence. Lately, everything from chocolate to shopping has been described as "addictive."

    Pot is not addictive according to the first definition. A lot of prescription medications are.

    Seems like common sense to me of why this bill should be passed. The evidence is there that medical marijuana is helping/has helped treat PTSD. [/FONT][/COLOR]
    Well, I tell you one thing. If this does pass, I will suddenly start having some really bad dreams and yelling at people for walking too close to me in public...........just sayin.

    The only drugs more addictive than benzodiazepines are heroine and maybe meth.

    Apacherat do you feel the Government shouldn't be responsible for the well being of veterans?

    Do you believe the taxpayers should be responsible for the well being of foreigners who pissed on our sovereignty and laughed at our laws and demand to be awarded for their unlawful actions ?

    You're dodging the question. Do you or do you not think the Government should be responsible for the well being of Veterans?

    That is not why it will fail. Many people see it as THE gateway drug.

    It is only a gateway drug because it has to be purchased illegally from dealers who have other goods to sell.

    And it's not the people who have undue influence over decisions like this one, but the big donors such as big pharma.
