We are all equal in the face of the law. But some of us are more equal than others.

You are smoking too much crack. You keep changing your topix name, but your rants remain the same.

Sanity (finally) prevailed in one case.
Let's afford patients and their doctors the ability to do what is deemed necessary and helpful for the treatment of serious illness such as Mr. Williams and others. Is there a more cruel thing in our society than keeping medicine from those who need it? Hold the calls for legalization, and make sure the sick and dying are taken care of. They do not need to be in the middle of this. It's just ridiculous (and offensive!)

Mr. Williams' only saving grace in this case is that he cleaned his pipe of any residue. Had they found any traces of cannabis, he would have been treated like a common criminal instead of a contributing member of society and patient under a doctor's care. The topic of medical cannabis brings out some interesting commentary, as any thread on the subject reveals. It's time for compassionate and consistent legislation for those who benefit medically from THC. In what other nation is a patient treated as a criminal?

As an aside, I wonder WHY airport security felt obligated to open Mr. Williams' suitcase to do a search?
