    God bless NORML for the work they’re doing but they have to move a lot faster — especially with respect to Medical Marijuana. American children with seizure disorders are suffering and dying — needlessly — for them its a matter of life and death.

    Why don’t you enlist the aid of Dr. Sanjay Gupta? I’m sure he’d be glad to help.

    THIS YEAR 1.6 MILLION AMERICANS WILL BE DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER.
    THIS WEEKEND 3,000 OF THEM WILL DIE FROM IT.
    EVERY AMERICAN WITH CANCER DESERVES THE RIGHT TO HAVE SAFE, LEGAL, ACCESS TO MEDICAL MARIJUANA.
    EVERY SINGLE ONE.
    See this week’s special issue of Newsweek — about CANCER.
    Marijuana is a “Wonder Drug” for CANCER PATIENTS.
    Every American with Cancer deserves the right to have safe, legal, access to Medical Marijuana.
    Every single one!

    What if anything is being done to amend the cbd law that was pronounced dead on arrival, because of the wording,Prescription rather than recommendation?

      It was just a ploy to appease mm sympathizers. While it is a huge step in Texas, we still have a long way to go.

      Apparently they did something similar to Arizona in ’96. CBD law with no “prescribers” willing to risk their license. It’s a delaying tactic.

    Legalize pot to fund the police.
