Ronald. I'm afraid you deny evidence. Marijuana is not addictive at. By addictive I mean the presence of physiological response to withdrawal. Marijuana can be said (unlike salvia) habituating, but everything pleasant is habituating (TV, sports, fruit juice, etc.).<quoted text>
That is so silly. There is no such thing as "medical" Marijuana. Marijuana is a dangerous highly addictive class 1 illegal drug. As far as the corrupt California politicians "taxing" illegal pot to "get the overtaxed minority of Californians who pay taxes out of debt", that is just as silly. Whenever the free-spending out-of-control California political ruling class get more tax money, all they do is to use it to leverage more debt.
And medical marijuana exists, since thousand of years. There are tuns of evidence easily accessible. You can completely cure certain illness from sciatica to cancers. Marijuana is one of the best, safe and efficacious, medication in the world, perhaps with salvia and iboga coming after.
You are right on the fact that marijuana is illegal, even schedule one, but that is the scandal that we are denouncing and trying to change.
