Two points here: 1) My wife is in Stage 4 BC and now on 3rd chemo series as the first 2 didn't work. Nausea, lack of appetite and extreme fatigue had caused her muscles to atrophy. Now, within 2 minutes of smoking, her nausea disappears and the appetite comes back. As we live in a "no-pot state", I am always worried about being branded a criminal in the strict sense, but I rationalize away the risk by witnessing the relief it provides my wife. 2) I would argue that the movement for MJ's federal legalization is gathering steam and needs to happen. It's far better than alcohol and I would also argue it is NOT addictive on the level that alcohol is. Many in the medical profession agree. Spending enormous amounts of money for federal and state MJ interdiction activities is a waste and diversion of resources better applied to the harder drugs such as cocaine, meth and heroin. Putting people in jail for MJ possession and branding them felons for the rest of their lives is simply stupid.
