I don’t believe for a moment that cannabis can cure cancer ( I know too much of that issue to believe in simple cures ), however I have no doubt ( as I have seen it ) that it can help with the aftereffects of Chemo.
But it can. It took me time to believe this, but the evidences are overwhelming. Just take a look on the many links. Here are some:

Read the constitution before you post stuff like this, we won’t elect right wing moron, that can only gain votes by bribing the population with tax cuts
we have already seen what that gets us
I agree that Obama is only a mediocre president, that has not cleaned up the GOP mess nearly fast enough, we need someone that will be more aggressive than Obama
You don't need to keep telling us what you are: A far left liberal nut. Hay fool, we just re-elected a far left wing moron that can only campaign by bribing the sheep with middle class tax cuts. Once again you got duped....lol..how funny.

Legalizing of Marijuana Raises Health Concerns: makes kids dumb.

. Today’s marijuana is much more potent: The mean concentration of THC, the psychoactive ingredient, in confiscated cannabis more than doubled between 1993 and 2008.

Increased potency may be having unforeseen consequences. The human brain’s cannabinoid receptors are typically activated by naturally occurring chemicals in the body called endocannabinoids, which are similar to THC. There is a high density of cannabinoid receptors in parts of the brain that affect pleasure, memory and concentration. Some research suggests that these areas continue to be affected by marijuana use even after the “high” dissipates.

“It’s much more potent marijuana, which may explain why we’ve seen a pretty dramatic increase in admission to emergency rooms and treatment programs for marijuana,” said Dr. Nora D. Volkow, director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse.“When we hear,‘Well, I smoked and nothing happened to me,’ we need to think about the context of when these people started to take it, how frequently they used and how active the marijuana was.”

The most disturbing new studies about early teenage use of marijuana showed that young adults who started smoking pot regularly before they were 16 performed significantly worse on cognitive tests of brain function than those who had started smoking later in adolescence. They performed particularly poorly on tests assessing executive function, which is responsible for planning and abstract thinking, as well as understanding rules and inhibiting inappropriate responses.

Nor do you keep having to tell us that you have no clue about anything when talking about a 3rd term

Take away the Tax cut bribes, and they would hardly get any votes at all.

Sure, but a drug prohibition multiplies its dangerousness by a huge factor. Drugs are a problem since prohibition. Before, there was only incident, like with sulfuric acid, or some medication. With prohibition the state has become a drug dealer.
No it hasn't. What does it cause to prohibit drugs, except start it from spreading? It would only make drug dealing legal.

The 3rd term reference was another candidate that will be Obama the third, sorry you didn't get it. I agree the politicians are bought. Romney told the truth that the middle class will have to pay and that all will have to pay more. Obama lied and the sheep sucked it up.

making pot legal will only increase more kids using it. That's all we need: more dumb kids walking around with their pants just above their knees.

You buy $20 worth of alcohol and overdose and kill yourself. You can use $200 worth of pot and just get stoned. There is an to the effects you receive no matter how much you smoke. You cannot hurt yourself using pot...in the sense of becoming toxic to your body.

You have demonstrated how clueless you are on other things, I didn’t put your being clueless about that beyond you.

Romney's main goal was to protect his own tax bracket, didn’t win on that did he?

No need to worry, the GOP are now embroiled in a Civil war, if the far right wins and they run a far right candidate, they will lose in a landslide, if the more moderate win, they will run a candidate that has enough sense to not try and destroy the country, but to "enthuse” the base" he will have to make far right statements, and will hence lose the election.

It is illegal for kids, but if pot is legal for just adults, with all the false info out there, and a lot easier to obtain, we will see an increase.

San Francisco Giants pitcher Sergio Romo did not commit a crime, yet he was arrested at a Las Vegas airport. The Fourth Amendment protects the people from the government improperly taking property, papers or people without a valid warrant based on probably cause (good reason).

It doesn't compare, pot is a weed, booze has to be processed, it's not that easy to obtain when it was illegal for kids. Get it? Biggot Dope.

What are you talking about retard: Romo failed to provide proper identification at a document checkpoint and engaged in a dispute with TSA officers. I guess you never fly, EVERY person has to show proper ID to get through security. Doesn't Obama give you free loaders free flights once in awhile? That just isn't fair that just the rich are flying around...lol.

Ya have to remeber the city council members for Glendora, California are a bunch of right wing Tea Party Baggers, they are pron to going off half-cocked at the slightest hint of them being held responsible for something.

Supreme Court Rules L.A. County Not Responsible for Polluted Waters.

The current Court decision is a blow to environmentalists who wanted the county to clean copper, fecal bacteria and other pollutants from L.A. rivers before it reached the ocean.
