Why are we still basing policy based on a Reefer Madness perspective? This plant has been proven to be a health benefit to the human body in multiple studies. I happen to be a brain cancer survivor, though since it was the most aggressive and lethal form of brain tumor believed to recur in all patients, I'm still undergoing periodic MRIs, battling seizures and using my own home grown cannabis to improve the quality of my life. If the studies that are being conducted in Israel, Sweden, Spain, and Italy, at least, are correct and that Marijuana can treat brain cancer, I'd like to keep growing mine the way I have been for the last six years. I have a "strong recommendation" from my neuro oncologist at UCSF, a recognized regional brain tumor center, to 'regularize' my cannabis use, primarily to combat the seizures I'm now predisposed for, as a result of my disabling brain surgery.
In other words, Zach, please leave me and my garden the F alone.
