Congress likely to catch on that most people find it disgusting to jail cancer, AIDS, and MS patients. No seriously….I mean they might catch on while at least some of those paitents are still alive.

With Michigan set to become the 13th state to allow medicinal usage of marijuana, provided a voter initiative passes this fall, there’s a chance Congress might eventually wake up and show a sliver of compassion to very seriously ill folks. All the Democratic candidates pledged to end federal harassment of medicinal dispensaries and doctors and patients. Sadly, only Ron Paul and Tom Tancredo had the guts to do the same on the GOP side. And John McCain? Well, he’s either still angry at the pot-smoking hippies that cost us Vietnam, or he’s still clinging to his Reagan-era “Just Say No” booklet.

“I do not support the use of marijuana for medical purposes,” McCain said. “I believe that marijuana is a gateway drug. That is my view, and that’s the view of the federal drug czar and other experts.”

Marijuana has no medical benefits just as staying in Iraq for the next 100 yrs. is a great idea. Anyway, read more about some positive signs of ending the DEA’s cruelty and idiocy.  Better late than never.
