If you are outraged at an employer being able to fire you for using Prozac or Lyrica or Ambien then why should not that same outrage apply to legal use of marijuana?

It cannot be left to the courts because the courts simply apply the law unless the law is vague or unconstitutional. Change needs to come from the legislature rewriting the laws or the people amending the state constitution.

We need rational drug laws and this is yet another example of anti-drug madness.

To all the folks in The Villages who smoke grass.

If one had a loved one who was paralyzed in a car accident and suffered violent muscle spasms that were only alleviated by medical marijuana one would not be casting judgement. An interesting case to see how it unfolds.

ANYONE would agree with that. It is that isolated examples are brought up and make me very skeptical. If that is so, do not make it "over the counter" make it prescribed.

Next?

Prescribed for sure, and not an easy prescription to get.

The only part that you left out was that the medication was weed. The lower courts have ruled correctly with respect to the law. If the higher courts should rule differently, they are simply being activists and rewriting the law.

I have a friend who has terminal cancer. He was losing weight very fast and would not eat enough because of no appetite from the medications. He smokes marijuana to increase his appetite and he has put on 40 pounds and looks healthy. I think it will extend his life instead of wasting away to nothing but skin and bones. I am happy he has the option of marijuana.
