Franco, your chance of winning this argument is about the same as the government winning the war on weed!
Everyone who knows, knows there is no rationale for it on any level but you will never see an office older with the nads to make the stand publicly.
Colorado will be a major force on Tuesday to bring some sanity to the issue. Then, there is the medical use for relief in pain which big pharma has been spending millions on to prevent the medical use. Much better to keep folks on pain meds with all the side affects than an organic compound that does the same job.
Almost one half (48%) would prescribe marijuana to some of their patients if it were legal.
48% of Oncologist support pot for the treatment of pain!
Again, this is just a side issue to the bigger issues that ail this country. Issues like the ecomony, Monetary and Foreign Policy which Romney and Obama just represent more of the same old failed policies!
The Democrats have failed us.
The Republicans have failed us.
If 5% of the American voters vote Libertarian, then Libertarian candidates can no longer be ignored in Presidential debates. There would be other ideas and other candidates outside of the two dysfunction parties in local, state and Federal government.
No more two party monopoly!
And, if Romney loses on Tuesday, the Repub Party is done, finished, kaput! That's because the Repub brand is damaged beyond repair. Today's new Conservatives have given the party a bad reputation and the great majority of young voters and women want nothing to do with this new Conservatism. If Romney wins, the Repubs can hold on hold on for a few more years. If he loses, the party is over and the nation's third oldest party, the Libertarian Party, will be the new viable party with fresh ideas and a fresh platform better suited for the here and now!
BTW, Presidential candidate Libertarian Gary Johnson has run 75 Triathalons and climbed Mt Everest over the past 5 years! Not to shabby of an x-hippie!
Oh, by the way. Why should we listen to or appreciate the opinions of anyone that can't figure figure out how to use spell check?
