     i was about to write the same thing, lol. The government WORKS for US THE PEOPLE not the other way around. We pay them to serve us how we want to be served, not so government can rule with an iron fist. This is a democracy not a monachy. Stand up and make your voice heard, send letters, show up on their front door with a full presentation proving that cannabis is less harmful than caffine, asprin, sugar, and a plethera of other acepted DRUGS that are ok to feed our children!

    Why is it that nearly every story you hear covered on broadcast TV (Not just CAnnabis stories either) has someone interviewed who inevitably doesn’t have a clue what they are talking and gives absolutely no helpful information about the topic yet are billed as an expert or at the least qualified to open their mouth to talk when they are not qualified to talk period.
