Chastity, MEDICAL marijuana is grown by the US GOVERNMENT. So, you are saying that the US government is causing violence!
Try to learn about the REAL world! I've lived in it for over a half century!
I do NOT espouse recreational use of the herb/drug. I DO espouse it for valid medical uses, as I've personally witnessed AND reviewed peer reviewed research into said valid medical uses and their effects on the patients. Refuse to acknowledge that, espouse mandatory euthanasia for many chronic or terminal conditions. Then, be ready for an armed response view to your view!
That IS where our polarized nation wants to go. Pure fascism. The view of ONE group and nobody else has a view. Shortly followed by armed response to other views. It's been repeated endlessly throughout human history!
No area of REALITY, only VIEWPOINTS are valid, not reality.
I've watched vast poppy crops burn, while the US had a massive morphine shortage.
Oh, I forgot the tea party line, pain builds character. As long as the pain is not their own...
Screw the surgical patient. Screw the cancer patient. Screw the chronic pain patient.
It builds character! Or something.
Or, I know many, many, many veterans who are ALL the almighty god through their pain.
But, DO keep the US 20 years behind Europe, as we've done throughout our nation's history! We did it during the civil war, where germ theory of disease was discarded in the US for 20 years after it was proved in Europe. We've done it for antibiotics, until WWII forced it upon us. We do it now, where percutaneous valve replacement is experimental in the US, but common practice for 20 years in Europe.
But, the US has the "best" health care in the WORLD.
More like, the best TECHNICAL health care, but practical health care is elsewhere. Get diagnosed here, get finally treated in Europe.
But, what the hell do I know? I only spent over 27 years of my life defending our nation, in many, many, many nations. I don't know anything that could be observed!
ONLY the twinkie encrusted couch crowd knows what is REALLY going on...
