Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid Endorses Medical Marijuana

senator harry reid medical marijuanaIt appears that medical marijuana has a new high profile supporter – United States Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV). In an interview with the Las Vegas Sun Harry Reid expressed his support for medical marijuana. During the interview Senator Reid talked about a personal friend’s son that had effectively used medical marijuana.

“He was so skinny and doing so poorly and somebody told him and his mom, you know, you should smoke some marijuana, because one of the side effects is … you get the munchies, you get extremely hungry,” Reid said in the interview. “He tried it and sure enough, he was able to eat for the first time, he got hungry. So I thought, you know there might be some medical reasons for taking another look at this.”

This is why personal stories about how medical marijuana has worked are so important. Here you have Senator Harry Reid, who admitted that a decade ago he was absolutely against marijuana altogether, changing his opinion because of a first hand experience he had watching a medical marijuana patient alleviate some of their suffering with medical marijuana. Senator Reid is now sharing that story with the rest of America. How many more people will change their minds now as a result?

If you are a medical marijuana patient who has used medical marijuana successfully, tell people your story. I hope more federal politicians jump on board. Harry Reid stopped short of endorsing full legalization, but did say that it’s an issue that needs to be looked at more. I’m confident that just as Senator Reid evolved on medical marijuana, so too will he evolve on recreational marijuana and offer up his full endorsement sooner than later.

    Fuck you Harry! You’re just now figuring this out? Right! Your past negative attitude towards this substance won’t be forgotten. You are part of the system that has ruined the credibility of LE and our Constitution. You have blood on your hands now you think we’re all going to bow to you now that you’ve “had an epiphany” while thousands of non violent prisoners are STILL suffering in jail or have had their life ruined because you were fucking ignorant? Just retire.

    Politicians are so full of shit. They never care until it happens to someone in their family or someone’s family who has donated to their campaigns. Reid finds himself now supporting it despite all of those patients that were targeted, arrested, and jailed while he was against it.

    And again, MMJ seems to get the sympathy for a drug that was considered dangerous for so long that they still try to frame as too dangerous to legalize it for all. I am sure all of these who are sitting in a jail cell right now because of cannabis arrests could care less that Harry Reid came around because he hasn’t done shit in his own state to get MMJ rolling despite being passed a long time ago.

    “I used to be all for violating your rights, but since it had a negative effect on a friend of mine, I think I’ll stop violating one of them!” A criminal and absolute tool, trying to pander to people.

    When you or someone you know has a medical issue that can only be helped by ingesting or inhaling Cannabis, I bet you’ll change your mind about Cannabis too…. Get educated.

    Finally a “suit” that opened its mind and heart. Now that’s progress. We can hope he’s not ostracized for speaking up.
