Any negative comment that can be made about cannabis is applicable to alcohol and pharma man-made drugs to an even greater degree. Why must the lies and hypocrisy persist regarding marijuana? Cannabis has plenty of verifiable medical uses yet it is still a schedule 1 drug...why? Because big pharma lobbies hard against it. They know that they will not be able to patent nature and control a plant. Wake up people, you have been fed lies. Cannabidiol has been shown to turn off cancer development and save lives, help with life threatening seizures in children... Search Dravet Syndrome, among other uses. It is time to stop believing the refer madness propaganda and research for yourself to find the truth. Stop the lies and legalize! Nature over synthetic! http://www.change.org/petitions/president-barack-obama-if-marijuana-is-safer-than-alcohol-remove-it-from-the-dea-s-schedule-of-drugs

So grass is okay but an inhaler for asthma is not, because the latter is part of the substance abuse policy. Lets have the same rules for it as alcohol, you can use it on your own time, but when you are at work it cannot be in your system.

The NBA's policy on marijuana is similar: treatment after the first positive test, a $25,000 fine if it happens again, a five-game suspension for the third violation.------ no matter your position on legalization, how stupid must you be to know the rules and jeopardize your livelihood in a professional that has an average duration of only a few years.
