Vermont Senate Backs Med Marijuana Dispensaries

Vermont -- Sen. Philip Baruth stood on the Senate floor Thursday evening and told the story of how two relatives -- his grandmother and aunt -- had cancer and doctors told them marijuana might help them.His grandmother was too horrified to consider it, the Chittenden County Democrat said. In the case of his aunt, he was a college student and found himself in a tough spot.
"I was in the strange position of having my mother come to me and ask me if I knew any way we could procure marijuana," he said. He told her he did, he said, though he was jeopardizing his student loan, his place at college and his record.It was in memory of his aunt, Baruth said, that he was voting Thursday for a bill that would allow up to four medical marijuana dispensaries to be established in Vermont.The majority of his fellow senators agreed, voting 25-4 to give the bill preliminary approval."We will protect patients by providing a legal source," Sen. Jeanette White, D-Windham, told senators.A 2004 law allowed those with specific medical conditions to sign up for the state's medical marijuana registry and use the drug without repercussion. This bill would give those patients a legal means of obtaining marijuana if they were unable to grow it themselves, White said.

"Snakes in Suits"
Yeah, that's it. I looked for, and found my book here at home.I received the book while I was in prison. I saw it in a book ordering catalog and asked my Wife to order it from Amazon and have it sent to me. It became popular reading among the prisoners in my housing unit. I mailed it home before I left there in '07.It is an enlightening read, enjoy.P.S. If I could remember everything I ever knew...?

Why worry?
Through all of these messes and fights we should never forget what Sen. Feinstein said in a news conference leading up to the 2010 vote in California on Prop 19. Marijuana is already LEGAL under Federal Law, right?  :-)

Special Thank You
A special thank you to the 24 Senators who approved this…The other Four must have evil minds that plot destruction…We need more politicians stepping up to the plate and doing the right thing.

“His grandmother was too “horrified” to consider it, the Chittenden County Democrat said. In the case of his aunt, he was a college student and found himself in a tough spot.”Now just why should she be ‘horrified’…The prohibitionists have imbedded too many minds with their days of old refer madness tricks…'Horrified' of a compound that has the potential to treat and kill cancer cells…Horrified...!!!…Hhmmm…I’m horrified that these creepy prohibitionists/politicians are keeping this from ‘We The People’…Politicians need to be put back in line…They work…or supposed to work for us…after all we are the ones paying their salaries and benefits…Opps I forgot…most of these liars work for the special interests that keeps their pockets lined.When it comes to their drug wars…They gather just like witches at Black Masses…That’s what’s really-really ‘horrifying’…***Black Sabbath - War Pigs

runruff sounds interesting, do you have a link to the study by any chance?This is great news in VT, the overwhelming Senate vote is really nice, and after many LONG years of hostile governors we finally have a good one (remember Howard Dean??). Hopefully they'll continue to pass more bills expanding it every year, I'm sure the state could use 100+ dispensaries

Every now an then...
...a daisy pops up in the dung pile. Some of these law makers are real humans. Very few though.I am reading about sociopaths and other related subjects lately. The last ten years or so? In a study on academic and industrial aptitude, it is determined that a certain type of personality is attracted to civil and bureaucratic jobs. The most prominent is the "line of least resistance" type. Also known as the least of the so called "immature" personality types. They are likely to be very self centered. Espouse a strong belief in a higher power. And have a general sense of self entitlement.With this in mind we can see more clearly the politicians and prohibitionist. And, like the same emotion that drives rock stars and movie stars, they crave recognition.They are quite transparent, really.
