This whole medical marijuana issue is such a crock. It anyone truly needs the ingredient in medical marijuana, their doctor can prescribe it in pill form. And no, I don't want to hear some potheads argument that the pills aren't as good as the joints -- thats also a crock. The sole purpose for "medical marijuana" is to circumvent illegal substance laws. One of the exceedinly few good things that Obama has done is to provide some level of enforcement of federal laws against marijuana.

Keeping marijuana illegal while booze is legal is hypocritical.
