    Retired Marine staff sergeant Mark DiPasquale says the drug freed him from the 17 opioids, anti-anxiety pills and other medications that were prescribed to him for migraines, post-traumatic stress and other injuries from service that included a hard helicopter landing in Iraq in 2005.

    one of the main obstacles there is only federal marijuana access is granted from the university of Mississippi... there are lots of Vets and that little school will not be able to keep up??? or is this the Feds' access into Legal Pot across the Country ? Or, is there laws in place to start allowing outside sources to supply federal needs? not exactly directed @macbill just sayin

    My understanding is that the advocacy from veteran's groups is encouraging states to enact medical marijuana laws, and some states "to OK therapeutic pot as a PTSD treatment, though it’s illegal under federal law and doesn’t boast extensive, conclusive medical research".

    Absolutely.

    With ramifications for PA's lame-ass (what else would one expect?) attempt to address the needs and wishes of the majority of its citizens:


    How legal marijuana in N.J. will disrupt Pa.'s medical program: A Q&A with Duane Morris lawyers

    This news has me very excited. I thought I was years away (at least) from being able to access recreational buds. As grateful as I have been to my black market acquaintance who takes proper care of me, I'm ready to be able to purchase what I want rather than what is available. I've been dreaming of a steady diet of sativas ever since I spent a weekend with dutch treat while on a trip to Seattle last year.

    Marginally marijuana, but fascinating...
    Portugal’s radical drugs policy is working. Why hasn’t the world copied it?
    In 2001, ..... Portugal became the first country to decriminalise the possession and consumption of all illicit substances. Rather than being arrested, those caught with a personal supply might be given a warning, a small fine, or told to appear before a local commission – a doctor, a lawyer and a social worker – about treatment, harm reduction, and the support services that were available to them.

    Let Marijuana Travel Between States If Guns Can, Dem Congressman Says

    Republicans on Capitol Hill are pushing legislation this week that would allow people permitted to carry concealed guns in one state to bring their weapons with them when they travel, even if their destination state has more stringent requirements to qualify for concealed carry.

    But if the GOP wants to do that, a Democratic congressman argues in a new video, they should also be in favor of forcing states to recognize protections granted under each another’s marijuana laws.

    LA Times Editorial:
    Back off, Jeff Sessions. California and other states should be able to legalize and regulate pot on their own


    Late last month, Sessions told reporters that his office was looking “very hard” at recreational marijuana. “It’s my view that the use of marijuana is detrimental, and we should not give encouragement in any way to it, and it represents a federal violation, which is in the law and is subject to being enforced,” he said, adding that the department was working toward a “rational policy.”
