if the worlds governments had a grain of sense between them they would wake up to the reality of this plant and legalise it,tax it according to strength,stop the stigma that goes with using it for pleasure or medication,there are hundreds of uses that dont involve getting high on it, and within a real short time the changes who be so globally noticable peace may even break out in some places !!!!!

Medical Marijuana has been approved in MI and they have schools to teach people how to grow it. I always wondered how long it would be before some idiot tried to use a weapon to get it illegally. We have about 75 to a 100 clinics that have been issued license to grow and distribute.

From July 1 to the end of the year, there have been 28 medical marijuana-related robberies in Denver, police said. Those crimes include 15 dispensary sticks-ups and 13 medical-marijuana-related robberies or burglaries at residences, where targets ranged from pot grow operations to home invasion robberies of medical marijuana patients.
While it will always be my opinion that Medical Marijuana be legal
everywhere, there is still, obviously, alot of work to be done to
eliminate the criminal element from this. The obvious solution would be to legalise
marijuana across the board, do it everywhere, and do it NOW.
Prohobition did not work in the 1920's, and it doen't work for marijuana now,
nor has it ever.
Thanks, Terry.

Medical marijuana is like any commodity, unfortunately evil people will kill for a handful of nothingness.

I agree with Pastor Tim,if marijuana was legal everywhere,this might not have happened.We need to legalize it now.

Truly sad. Marijuana dispensaries, including that sold from homes, needs to be heavily secured until the threat is removed. Together with high unemployment, a depression (yes, a depression - not a recession), and crazed people running loose, this is no time to take chances and trust everyone.
