Seems like the "stone age" is still here since the Feds are busting people in states that have legalized it..

One story on the news yesterday as a matter of fact...

You are talking about the state legislature aren't you, not Congress?

Its the damage that illegal farming practices, use of illegal chemicals/overuse, and theft from municipal water that is causing many of the problems. Many of the growers are planting, moving on to different places and leaving behind basically a waste/dump site.

WV needs to get some class. I never believed the WV jokes. But now I do. Do you people know ho to talk or even wear proper attire? Do any of you have an education? I think you all need to come out of the woods. Are you all stuck on stupid or still in the 40's? Oh my what a place. And what is a holler? And where is bigfoot? What species are you all?

The EPA is a government agency and will have nothing to do with it. Legalization is being done state per state and not approved by the goverment. The DEA is the leadind goverment body.

You still haven't listed what poisonous chemical you speak of.

Medical pot is grown organically, buy the way.

I don't support lots of alternative cures because there are so many snake oil salesmen out there. Pot really does help people with Muscular Dystrophy I know for a fact. It isn't a cure for cancer but has been proven to shrink tumors. Deal is, it is less harmful than alcohol and many of the prescription drugs yet remains a substance as illegal as cocaine and Heroine.
AND heroin use is on the rise again..One reason could possibly be the pill factories are drying up..

Ok, OP as much as I do in fact agree WV needs to do this, the method of which you are pushing your position only detracts from it and in the court of public perception gives more reason to oppose it than support it.

I do fully agree the state SHOULD go this route. We are one of the most naturalistic states in the union, with a long history (which seemingly is being forgotten with recent events) of being socially progressive and oft rebellious against overzealous authority. The "organic" nature of the state also makes for an ideal growing clime where more traditional cash crops require more arable land. Obviously the state could use the boon in taxation funding and honestly the state has long been in dire need of viable industries to diversify the states economic structure and help ween us off our masochistic reliance on coal jobs.

It would help the state greatly and honestly WV has one rather unique advantage in being a forerunner for something like this. There is no stigma marijuana can bestow on the state, that worse than the public perception the state already endures and I almost suspect purposely tries to perpetuate.

When as a people youve been seen as backwoods, illiterate, ignorant, inbred, incestual, goat/sheep poking, pillbilly zombies being called potheads would actually be an upgrade.

Sad to say but the news is that soon, a heroin fix will only cost five bucks. I forget the logistics behind it.

Currently, 17 states and the District of Columbia have legalized medical marijuana. In the second half of 2012, seven more states will decide, either in the state legislature or via ballot initiatives, whether they will join them in legalizing the use of marijuana, in whole or in part.
Recent polling shows that 3/4 of Americans support the right to use state-sanctioned medical marijuana. Support for full marijuana legalization is at an all-time high of 50%.
Legalized medical marijuana and legalized is two different things. Legalized, you don't need a script and can be used for recreational purposes.
