Once Dr Gupta was against medical marijuana but as of late he has changed his mind because of the lies and falsehoods spread by the DEA and the anti drug machine. The good doctor accused the anti drug warriors of hiding studies that say good things about pot and pushing those that say bad things. For instance Johns Hopkins did a study that said pot smokers drove at a 98% rate of ability. This study was hidden while a negitive study was published from UCLA. The same thing was happening in the medical marijuana field. Good job Dr Gupta.

If it was left up to me, it would be sold in state liquor stores like cigarettes and taxed like the rest of the junk you can find in those places.

It's a wonder to me that a person can go in to a state liquor store and buy a bottle that can kill them if abused, and marijuana is still thought of like it's arsenic. What's the worst can happen to someone--you get kicked out of Burger King because they're closing? :roll:

Great point. I saw Ozzy in concert in 1980 and saw a pretty young teenage girl chug most of a fifth of Jack and almost die. She could not have smoked enough pot to kill her.
