Anyone see Montel on TV trying to get them to legalize Medical Pot? He says it helps with his MS. I know my husband was in lots of pain and I rolled lots of joints for him. One of the folks in his group therapy suggested it and it worked. So what are your thoughts on this?

Don't expect the Federal Government to legalize it any time in the near future. Too many politicians making money on the ``War on Drugs". The War on Drugs is a scam. Even if you are anti drug, you should still be in favor of legalization.

Hey ya know what if they want to take me down for helping my hubby die comfortably so be it. I made his last few days nice like he wanted, got a problem with that then your fucked up in the head. Ya know if my dog gets sick I can have it put to sleep and if I don't I can actually be arrested for animal ruelity but if my husband gets sick and I help him die comfortabally then I can be arrested what wrong with that pic.

Gurl, According to the feds it's still illegal so I would not fess-up to anything on the net. There is a women dieing in Oakland, CA and she stated she requires pot to keep alive, but the feds are still prosecuting her.

I haven't bought pot in years, but I'd gladly take the risk of buying it again for a family member who needed it medically. My 2nd wife was in a wheelchair with MS and pot was the only thing other than debilitating drugs that would get rid of her god-awful muscle spasms. With the pot, she was functional, with the drugs she was little more than a zombie. Not smoking pot wasn't an option for her and for many cancer patients it's one of the few ways they can keep food down. Fortunately, here in CA, there are some enlightened legislators who realize that this is the only economical recourse for thousands of sufferers - and sometimes the ONLY recourse for those whose systems can't handle the stronger drugs.

Hate drugs, not too fond of drug users. I read an article about legalizing all drugs and it made sense to me. Wonder what all the dealers would have to do to make the big bucks then. We would have to find something else to spend all the law enforcement tax dollars on. Alcohol is legal. People abuse it or they don't. Prohibition did not stop people from drinking. It just created new crime.

This is true. MS suferers get huge benefits and relief from symptoms. But its is a big battle at the moment as of course Government does not want to legitimise pot. They may get adicted. Hell who is not addicted to not suffering?? A woman in Scotland has just been prosecuted for supplying cannabis on chocolate bars to MS sufferers. She herself suffers and says a little mixed in a cup of hot chocolate makes a huge difference. They have been hard on her but she says she will continue and try and change the law. If you decide you have to see what you position is in law and if you are prepared to take the risk. But that is what many are doing and taking on the law when they do to push the arguement. Junie

It should be legalized for medicinal purposes! If a state such as California legalizes it, the federal government should not be able to come in and invoke arrest powers derived from some federal law! The will of the people of California has been served by their legislature and the feds should not trample on the rights of the state. After all, the original intent of the federal branch of government was for a common defense and unrestricted trade and travel.

I think it is absurd that it is not legalized for medicinal purposes. If it relieves human suffering and causes no further suffering it is inhumane to withhold it.
