Bill Richardson says yes to cannabis

with 5 comments

Good for Bill Richardson:

New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson says he plans to sign a medical marijuana bill despite the controversy surrounding it. “Is it risky? So what if it is risky. It’s the right thing to do,” the Democratic presidential candidate told the Albuquerque Journal. “Sure I’ll catch national grief over this. But I don’t tailor my style, or what I stand for, to primary states.” The bill, which cleared the New Mexico Legislature Wednesday, would allow state residents suffering from certain debilitating medical problems to be state-certified for medical marijuana use to ease their symptoms, the newspaper said. Supporters say the measure would affect a relatively small number of people. “What we are talking about is 160 people in deep pain, and it only affects them,” Richardson said.

  1. I think this is a good solution for people who really have medical problems.I had a friend who was really sick and I believe this treatment would have helped him to overcome easily his mood swings and sufferings.

  3. “To be secure in their persons and effects” would seem to allow someone be permitted to cover their whole yard in marijuana wouldn’t ya think?

    How far we have come from the Constitution and its Bill of Rights.

    We should be outraged at the people persecuted for growing and smoking a harmless plant in general, never mind sick people. Perhaps, if anything, it is arguing its medicinal purposes that is postponing cannabis’ decriminalization. We should be outraged on issues of liberty and privacy alone. Forvever secure in our persons and effects.

  4. If God had wanted us to smoke marijuana, He would have it growing wild.
