Selective prosecution?

Maybe both reasons, being run into the ground and the Marijuana issue was the reason, I can agree with that but if it was only being ran into the ground, I think he would have stayed in the NFL, IMO.

Millions around the world think Marijuana and Medical Marijuana is being wrongfully attacked in the war on drugs and the government seems ignorant to knowing the medical benefits this plant has. We see the double standards the government has regarding the health and welfare of the people, “Cigerettes/Nicoteen and Alcohol” if they truly care? We are tired of our moms and dads, sons and daughters going to prison for years for using or growing medical marijuana. It's frustrating to have the main stream media turn a blind eye to the inhumanity the American Government is doing to its own people. Worst of all the government tells us for over a decade to get out and vote. "If you want something changed, vote" or "don't complain about America if you will not vote". America heard its government and responded, voter turn out has been in record numbers. It is in INSULT, a smack in the face when we unite as a country to change our laws to save the sick and suffering just to have Congress, "House" over ride or vote. Why did the Government ask us to come out and vote if our vote means nothing to them? I am insulted and everyone in America should be.

If politicians want to be our doctors, shouldn't we get free medical coverage? It seems to me that they know what I shouldn't take for my pain and suffering and offer that advice for free. I find it hard to believe that our government will allow Cocaine and Heroin to be prescribed to patients but will not fund research for the Marijuana plant. When 10 states and more are in the process to pass laws to allow Medical Marijuana the government still turns a blind eye to the sick and suffering who use this plant to relive the pain. Not only do they ignore them but the send them to prison for years.

Selective prosecution?

According to the federal government we do not know if Marijuana helps with Anxiety or any other medical condition. I and many others say it does but who are we to know our own bodies? Even when DOCTORS, “not to be confused with a POLITITION” prescribe Marijuana for Anxiety or to relieve our pain and suffering from a sever illness the government will still send us to prison and take our medication away.

If doctors in our state and community feel Medical Marijuana is safe for us to use and we respond well to the medication, why would our own government deny us of our medication? Just like with any other medication, if the drug is not working or given us bad side effects we stop taking it under a Doctors care. If you believe politicians are Doctors as well then maybe I have been going to the wrong office building when I needed my arm fixed, I should have went to Congress. The Supreme Court knew they were not Doctors and they passed it to the House where they thought it would also be fun to play Doctor but forgot to leave it in the bed room.

Do you know if Medical Marijuana helps Anxiety, Aids patients or people with Bi-polar? That is why we leave it up to the Doctors. Millions of people have been trying to tell Congress and the Bush Administration that Marijuana is saving lives and has many medical uses but they will not look up long enough to realize it. What it comes down to is if you do not have the millions to pay-off our government they will even let the sick and dieing suffer and the media is just as guilty not to be reporting about this injustice.

The government declared war on the wrong drug and innocent people are being locked up in prison well others are suffering and dieing. The war on Medical Marijuana is a war on the American people and families are being torn apart, sons watch mom and dad being taken off to prison for years just for taking their medication. Even some people who do not use Marijuana fail to see that this war involves them and their rights as Americans.

I have not heard one good reason why Marijuana should be illegal from the government. We can use vaporizers to take medical Marijuana and this allows us to safely take our medication with out all the toxins entering our body. Congress wonders, “What kind of message does it send our kids”? Kids are very smart and know from right or wrong, this isn’t a problem for the most part with heroin and cocaine being legal to prescribe patients. If the government would tell our youth the truth, they will listen and I am sure they are tired of being lied to. How do we know Marijuana is as bad as the government says when they won’t even study it to know? It must be the devil, or is that more propaganda?

Why should I trust my Doctor to make the right decisions about my health if the government doesn’t even trust Doctors opinions that Marijuana helps people who are sick and dieing?

Will you take the Blue or Red pill?

Maybe Marijuana doesn't help Anxiety and Ricky Williams is just smoking it up. It's still wrong about America’s double standards. How do we know Marijuana is as bad as the government says when they won’t even study it to know? It must be the devil, or is that more propaganda?


It's not chilly man, just being respectful errr.... you *****
