This is about Medical Marijuana
It could be a difficult choice if you are treating a disease that a marijuana product will alleviate. There are some illnesses that have had dramatic results with cannabis products. These people are required to make a choice of either improving their health and quality of life, or the right to protect themselves. Many cannabis products have no THC and will not get anyone high buying this stuff. Other tough choices could be buying this stuff for or child so that they can live a normal life, or become a felon.
You're arguing what you think the law should be. I merely stated what the law is. Those are two separate discussions.
You correctly stated what the choices are. I just explained that the choices available could be difficult some in some circumstances.

I was with you just about up until the part in red above. Do you have a reliable unbiased statistical reference to support that claim?
What part do you disagree with? That PTSD victims can benefit? or that the side effects are not as bad as some of the drugs they normally prescribe? My use of "proven beneficial" might be misguided. To be honest I have only seen anecdotal claims, but some of them are pretty convincing. The thing is there isn't much scientific research done about weed because most drug research is funded by federal government grants and since weed is illegal there are no funds.

Re: Honolulu PD begins confiscation of registered guns...

I don't think anyone is promotiong recreation weed, We are for the most part just discussiing the issue of doctor prescribed medication. I for one don't promote or recommend recreational weed. The issue on the original post is about legally prescribed medication.

I think that the point is missed that things like cannabis oils are criminalized and have no psychotropic effects nor any other bad sad effects and can drastically improve peoples lives.

Therapeutically prescribed marijuana can drastically improve the lives of cancer patients chronic pain, and PTSD victims. The drugs normally prescribed for these people are much more damaging to folks and the community than the weed. I suspect that a properly managed and regulated program might actually take it some of it off the streets and away from the children. There is an opioid epidemic coming our way, At least with weed no one overdoses and dies.

Personally, I don't want it, and I don't need it Im am blessed with reasonably good health.

A few years ago it was Luitenant Governor Dan Patrick who promised that as long as he is in power that he will never allow folks to get medical treatment because the cost to society would be that some people might enjoy the herb recreationally.
