Colorado legalized medicinal marijuana by constitutional amendment in 2000. The state was so ravaged by teen drug use, drug related crime, auto fatalities, and general cultural decline during the 12 years following this that the citizens rose up and voted to expand legalization to all uses, including recreational. Oh, wait. No, that's not right, Colorado is a mess. Right?

[Disclaimer: I am not supporting recreational legalization and it might be a mess now for all I know. It is just instructive to note that (a) medical legalization was not a veil for rec use (it came 12 years later) and (b) voters there clearly did not see the dire consequences being predicted in Florida - even over a long period of time.]

Legislation by expediency was the reason for the abortion example.. Pot is just what we called it in my day, not meant to trivialize it. No problem with tightly controlled medicinal use, just recreational. Morally, mind altering for giggles is bad, imo.

While we debate, those that want to abuse the herb do so easily. And, those who need the herb desperately enough can do the same just as easily... They just become criminals. Here, two brave individuals talk about their illegal, medical use of marijuana openly.

An except from a MS patient: "Alcorn keeps a diary of symptoms and can tick off those that have disappeared since she began smoking pot in earnest:

Headaches, bone itch, numb hands and feet, tremors, inability to stand or walk more than 10 minutes at a time, nerve pain, problems swallowing, problems speaking and a stiff right arm.

Alcorn does not view marijuana as a miracle cure. Some symptoms still remain, such as balance problems, digestive dysfunction, fatigue" (people should know this too... An honest discussion is all I want)

I believe Mrs Alcorn should be able to accomplish this without going to a street dealer. And, frankly, I love that amendment 2 doesn't force Florida to wait until drug companies figure out how to get FDA approval to make millions selling a God given herb as a patented miracle drug NOT called "cannabis".
SEMINOLE — Peggy Alcorn, a 68-year-old retiree, exercises every day in her swimming pool. • She hangs onto the edge for an hour — bouncing, swaying, kicking and singing to a mix of 1980s hits streaming from her computer. Every 15 minutes or so, she picks up a pipe and takes a few puffs of pot. • Alcorn has multiple sclerosis. She says marijuana has eased her symptoms dramatically. And she hopes that — come Nov. 4 — she will no longer have to worr...

LOVE this!  To the precious girls in my life, I hope I have never contributed to this thinking in you. You share many weaknesses with humanity; but, being a girl is NOT one of them. 

Please be free and confident in who you were made to be.  You cannot be defined narrowly.  You are multi-dimensional.  You can be gentle AND tough, sensitive AND confident, sweet AND strong, loving AND bold... You are many, wonderful things.
 
What does it really mean to run, throw, skate, sing, dance, or fight "like a girl”? http://goo.gl/1EyX3N
