  1. manuel says:

    we the the people who need and use medical marijuana realy do want to thank the people and officals who voted for the proposal, but why dont the govenment stop playing games and just leagleize marijuana period, and start selling it like the way they sell cigarettes this way they will get their taxes and would make a proffit and they would be able to regulate the bissnes.and sell it at thier own dispendseries.and they would not have to worry about who is leagle to sell and buy.and as fas as kids getting a hold of it . is not going to be any different than them getting alcohol or cigs,just make the fines and penalties harder on those who abuse the system and give or buy for minors.
