This does not appear to be a personal use issue.

Dumb law needs to be repealed. The lies that the big Drug companies spread that most people believe. People die every on legalized drugs. Zero deaths from Marijuana and cancer patience's have a better life with it's use. Grow your own medicine for pennies in your house are in your back yard. Oh and the idea of well the kids will all go around high is another lie. They are already smoking it if they want too.

We were the first state to make it illegal. We will be the last one to do the right thing. I think we need to start an petition and get in repealed. Make it legal to grow and use and sell. If you sell it buyer pays the tax on it. Medical use is tax free. This is the only reason I would use in the first place.
