The poor guy... that really is too bad... I wonder why the government doesn't just legalize it and clean up the industry. Aren't a lot of the problems and concerns with the drug results of the different and unsafe chemicals used on it during growth and production? All you have to do is make it safe through a more sterile growth environment and use of safer chemicals, and then you'd generally treat the recreational use like we treat the use of alcohol; encourage responsible use and try to punish recklessness. At the very least there shouldn't be such problems with the medical use. It'd be one thing if there were plenty of other medical drugs and treatments that worked as well, but when you have people suffering like this over a drug that shouldn't be so dangerous for a state to allow...:( I think legalizing it and turning it into clean business would be good... and it's not like being illegal has stopped many college students from using it. I'd wager that at least half of the people living on my campus smokes it, or at least have tried it... though I don't really get the appeal... smells funky and smoke in general kills me... though it's nowhere near as bad accidentally walking into a puff of weed smoke as it is walking into a puff of cigarette, or cigar smoke... let me tell you "Black & Mild"... nothing "mild" about that crap. It makes me nauseous... but I'm babbling. It's really too bad that this guy has to go through so much trouble.

... So why does he have to go to such lengths for access to it? All of the taboo on it is just ridiculous.
