"Devil weed" is slowly gaining recognition for it's medicinal benefits. And slowly but surely (I hope) moving toward decriminalization.

"The board recommended that legislators reclassify the drug from Schedule I, for which there are no permitted uses, to Schedule II, which could allow medical uses."

If the medical thing keeps expanding everyone will be exposed to all of the false BS that the conservative right have been spreading about marijuana over the years and people will realize that pot is less harmful than either of the conservatives choice of drugs(booze & cigs).

If that happens then I'm moving upstate to get in on some of that myself. I already love it up there and lived there when I was a kid and my pop was in the Air Force.

Since 1996, thirteen states have enacted laws that allow the cultivation of medical marijuana and protect patients who possess medical marijuana (with their doctors' recommendations or certifications) from criminal penalties: Alaska, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Maine, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington. Nine of the thirteen did so through the initiative process. Hawaii's law was enacted by the legislature and signed by the governor in 2000; Vermont's was enacted by the legislature and passed into law without the governor's signature in 2004; Rhode Island's was passed into law over the governor's veto in 2006; New Mexico's legislation was signed into law by Governor Bill Richardson in 2007; and on January 18, 2010, Governor Jon Corzine signed New Jersey's bill into law. In mid-December 2009, the United States Senate passed an omnibus appropriations bill that removed restrictions on the implementation of a marijuana initiative passed by District of Columbia voters in 1998; President Obama subsequently signed this bill into law on December 13, 2009.

Yes - I saw that on the local news out of Waterloo last night. Maybe this will help to get rid of some of the redneck image Iowa has.

I could volunteer a spot in my yard for them to grow test samples.

in nj, where they passed it, you will need to be a non-profit retail store. you will get our stash, i mean inventory, from an approved grower.

as a conservative, i'm all for decriminalizing mary jane. especially for medicinal purposes.

I've been working with a friend who just opened a wood stove store at a great location up here in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Once it becomes legal in California, and you are able to open cannabis cafes (which will eventually happen), we've got some extra room and some big plans.

There are, it's not all that rare.

Reminder - Conservative does not equal RNC, Tea Bags, or the Christian Coalition.

Seems like many of those excited here must be sick.

The trouble is that they are not talking sick in the head.
