    A better question might be “doesn’t this prove that “medical” marijuana laws are just a cover for people who want to get high”? I don’t seriously believe there are 1500 glaucoma patients or people who want to use marijuana to prevent nausea from chemotherapy, in a small area, ready to become members of a collective.

    All legislation is open to interpretation. I think the right approach would have been to for the legislature to designate a state agency with authority to issue regulations clarifying the MM statute. It ensures uniform interpretation throughout the state without having to go through the tortured route of judicial clarification. Especially in cases where criminal penalties are involved. If the legislature later disagrees with subsequent regulations promulgated by the agency, then they can enact a technical correction to the law that overrides the regulation.

    This is to address Ken Arromdee and anyother misinformed soles that share his narrow point of view, are you kidding? I would guess that the San Diego area has 10x’s that number if not more of “glaucoma” patients, and as this has historically been the best treatment for glaucoma, I’m sure the percent of patients that choose it is much higher than you might think. In regards to the use of medical marijuana to relieve nausea from chemotherapy, I would estimate it to be about 95% of those that have actually tried it, as someone who has worked with cancer patients from all walks of life, NOTHING WORKS BETTER!!! Unfortunately many cancer patients are made to feel like they are doing something wrong if they use marijuana, and therefore never try it and suffer miserably for no other reason than guilt inflicting peer pressure. Why don’t you do what American’s are supposed to do: allow others the freedom to live their own lives, as they allow you to do; last time I checked the majority of society did not ask Ken Arromdee to become their dictator! I’m an adult and I have the right to use anything I want to make living easier and I don’t need your uninformed opinions on a subject that you are so obviously unknowledgeable.

    As for your limited knowledge of conditions that are assisted by medical marijuana, the list is several pages long. As for me personally, I can use it to help control my chronic pain, it helps my stomach/indigestion as I have GURD, it also works better than anything when I need help to sleep; after vaporizing I drop off to sleep within 15 minutes, if I eat it I am out within the hour and I wake up without any type of a hangover effect; I have tried nearly every over the counter sleep agent and there is not one that works half as well as medical marijuana.

    Marijuana has its place in our pharmacopia and we need to put a stop to Law Enforcement that is busting for no other reason than fear of having their budget cut, and Pharmaceutical Corporations using thier lobbiests to keep the unfounded fears and claims of no medical benefit alive in Western Culture. If all anyone wanted to do was get stoned, why aren’t claims being made about all the medical conditions are cured by crack???
