What’s All The Fuss About Weed?

weed-we-trust I guess the “dope boys” all over the world aren’t the only ones having problems with distributing the most controversial drug, marijuana (or just plain weed).  Looks like sanctioned suppliers (those who can supply it legally, I mean for real whether it sells legally or illegally; people will get high) are being targeted by federal prosecution in states that allow medical marijuana (And yes, Maryland is one of those states, go figure).  The memo written by Deputy Attorney General David Ogden emphasizes that prosecutors have wide discretion in choosing which states to pursue (And better believe we are on top of that list) and says it’s not a good use of federal manpower to prosecute those who are without a doubt in compliance with state law.  Bruce Mirken, the communication’s director for the “Marijuana Policy Project” (who would have thought that people are building organizations to protect the use of weed, guess I’m just ignorant at this issue) have express relieve that the government is dramatically toward respecting scientific and practical reality.  Others oppose Obama support of this matter because they feel it takes attention away from the real issue at hand; people using medical marijuana as a cover for illegal activity.  There are so many pros and cons with just legalizing the use of marijuana, but I don’t believe that there will ever be a solution (or rather a compromise) for this issue, what do you think?  Do you think that legalizing marijuana will cut down on crime?  Do you believe that it’s a person right (with the exception of patients who need it for medical reasons) to purchase and use marijuana?  What’s the difference if a person go to the liquor store to purchase alcohol, it’s just as damaging as a drug.  Let me hear your thoughts on this one.
