If medical  Cannabis/Marijuana is legal in the state your reside then shouldn't it be tax deductable from state taxes as a medical expence - the same as other pharmicuticals?

http://www.alternet.org/drugs/10-benefits-medical-marijuanaAlternetCancer is the second most common cause of death in the U.S. resulting in at least 584,881 deaths, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Recent animal studies show that marijuana extracts can help kill certain cancer cells and even reduce the size of some of them. But, marijuana is still illegal in several states. The number of people who’ve died due to an overdose of marijuana? None.

The National Institute on Drug Abuse describes medical marijuana as “using the whole unprocessed marijuana plant or its basic extracts to treat a disease or symptom.” The Food and Drug Administration has, however, neither approved nor recognized the drug as medicine. So far, 25 states have approved the usage of medical marijuana.

Medical marijuana is available in a variety of forms. It can be smoked, vaporized, consumed as a pill or can be added to brownies, cookies and chocolate bars. Here are some of the benefits of using the drug as medicine.

The Hemp for Victory clip isn't very complete. Farmers who signed up for the program and grew hemp with male children of draft (into the military) age were exempt from the military because hemp was important for the war effort.

If cannabus were taken off the list of the DEA list of schedule 1 drugs perhaps medicine that was benificial to patients could be studied and made available.

Neal that is an interesting way of looking at it and I think it makes sense. Follow the money

Indiana enjoying more crazy:

I have a new and self-imposed policy that I follow when I see a news report of some bull-headed politician proposing some law to put low-level drug possessors in prison. That rule? Follow the money, of course.

Because something hideous is festering under the surface of these laws. It's the private prison lobby, which makes campaign contributions to secure harsher penalties. You see, these prison companies are in need of warm bodies, since they can put those people to work inside the walls of those prisons. The companies double-dip, too, pulling in a guaranteed sum from the state in addition to whatever they can make with their legalized slave labor. Weed offenders are just the sorts of people these prison profiteers are looking for. They're mostly non-violent people who will comply. They can be put to work without much worry.

This week, Indiana got into the mix, as its governor Mike Pence pushed for changes to legislation on drug crime. Among his suggested changes:

Tougher marijuana possession and dealing penalties could be added to a proposed overhaul of Indiana's criminal sentencing laws by legislators after Gov. Mike Pence questioned whether the plan was strict enough on low-level drug offenders.

One proposed change expected to be voted on Thursday would make possession of between about one-third of an ounce and 10 pounds of marijuana the lowest-level felony rather than the highest-level misdemeanor.

Why would this Republican governor suggest policies designed mostly for the destruction of communities and budgets alike? Mostly because he and others are politically aligned with the very prison companies that run the show.

Alex at Weird Universe captions:

An ad by a Seattle burger restaurant, inspired by the fact that Easter Sunday is on April 20 (4/20), which is a special day for cannabis enthusiasts. Of course, some people are already saying that the ad offends them. But in the ad’s defense, there is a long-standing argument that Jesus and his disciplesprobably were cannabis users. Though I doubt that argument is endorsed by the Vatican.

Man Charged With Marijuana Trafficking To Help Sick Wife

article image

On Tuesday of this week, a resident of Bluffton, South Carolina, was charged with drug trafficking after 137 pot plants were found in his backyard. The resident, a 66-year-old man named Frank Dennis Peters, turned himself in to the authorities.

Peters claims he has been growing the marijuana to assist his wife of 40 years who suffers from fibromyalgia and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. The drugs increase her appetite and help her sleep according to Peters. His wife has been ill for some time and needs help every couple hours for her treatments. Peters added, "I have a moral obligation to make my wife as comfortable as possible."

The neighbors had not reported the plants, though he has been growing them for some time. He believes that a guest at his neighbor’s most recent party must have notified the authorities.

Peters welcomed the police into his home voluntarily and made some coffee while they confiscated his plants. As his wife’s sole caregiver, Peters was given some time to make arrangements for her before he turned himself in to the local authorities. He was released on Tuesday from the Beaufort County Detention Center on his own recognizance.

Under current law, medical marijuana is legal, but only if it is purchased from South Carolina’s Department of Health and Environmental Control. However, the Department has never actually distributed any marijuana according to department spokesman. The law is 33 years old.

Peters does not match the description of a typical drug trafficker, though his case is hardly rare. Earlier today, a jury in Loveland, Colorado convicted two doctors for writing an illegitimate medical-marijuana license. The doctors were 63 and 73 years old.
