One Response to State Board of Health Issues Medical Marijuana Ruling

With 20% of the federal prison population in for cultivation and distribution of pot, the police state is now realizing that the tax payers can’t afford their excesses.

    Good for the people of Colorado, too bad for the police with their sick way of manipulating the bureacracy!!
