I just think it is funny how people say "we need more research" "we
want to make sure it is safe" I wonder if they said the same things with
opioids? Why aren't opioids a Schedule I controlled substance?
Medical marijuana is harmful in the hands of children and needs to be tightly
controlled. It’s already available in your neighborhood.
"Yet with advocates sensing the upper hand and seemingly disinterested in
any compromise with state leaders that could endanger the initiative, the debate
over medicinal cannabis is sure to extend well past the legislative session
despite the passage of five cannabis-related bills this year." and yet
people claim the DN is an unbiased news source. that aside I
congratulate the Utah legislature for at least being willing to approach this
Under federal law, all forms of cannabis remain illegal. It’s still a
Schedule I controlled substance, more tightly regulated than opium or cocaine.
When Sessions claims cannabis “is illegal in the United States—even
in Colorado, California, and everywhere else in America,” he’s
"Once they're off of hospice, they won't have access to
that..." This is a real insensitive comment by Melissa Butler the hospice
nurse. Most hospice patients are terminal, in fact the percentage is so large
it's horrible to say what she said. Please go slow on approving
medical marijuana. It's a mess in Denver and we all know the end game for
its proponents is recreational use. Drop our rates, homelessness and dui's
are practically leading the nation in Colorado. Crime rates have also
skyrocketed with pot legalization.
A couple of years ago, when Sen. Madsen introduced a bill to legalize Med.
Marijuana, I was shocked. He was a Republican state Sen. and a Mormon. I spoke
before the hearing committee as did a lot of other people that had benefited
from the demon weed as he did.It was obvious when a legislative
supporter pulled his support a couple of days before the hearings that it was a
dead issue. Also seeing the bored looks on the legislators faces said they were
bored and it wasn't going to pass. It was said that someone in
"authority" in Utah had a talk with the guy that pulled out.
"Daw has said he would like nothing more than to get medicinal cannabis into
the hands of "every legitimate patient," but to do it "in a way that
ensures patients are safe."What is unsafe about it? Deaths from
weed? "ZERO" How is it going to help someone with 6 months to live?
It is my opinion that legal medical weed will be available in Utah.
I also believe that recreational weed will be passed by a citizen referendum,
sooner or later. 3 states that border us have already legalized it,
plus a couple of dozen more nationally. Right now it is illegal to cross
borders with a prescription. Why?
