        Why was my on-topic reply removed? If Polar can post a link about prescription drug alternatives to marijuana, I should be able to reiterate what’s actually in that link. Come on IJ. Be consistent!!!

        Take 2:

        Polar – your link talks about only two alternatives and they’re both extremely similar to marijuana.

        Dronabinol = man-made form of cannabis
        Nabilone = synthetic cannabinoid

        So the alternative to using marijuana is to use man-made cannabis or the synthetic THC. There aren’t any NON-THC or NON-CANNABIS related alternatives discussed in your link.

          As stated previously, Insurance Journal has neither the resources nor desire to monitor comments 24/7. It is not possible to catch all off-topic or offensive comments. Because someone else went rogue or off-topic is no excuse for following them down that path. In your case, it appeared to be a duplicate comment. We respectfully request you all move on from repeating and rephrasing the same basic arguments on cannabis and Obamacare again and again. This is not a forum for personal discussions and continuous tit-for-tat or one-upmanship; please take those extended conversations offline. Thank you for your cooperation.

            Roger that. While I do not agree with part of what you said, I understand your point and will act accordingly. Thank you for your response. I hope you (all) enjoy your weekend.

      Because it is so much more desirable to make people who could use it and benefit suffer because Nixon-era ideals about “dope” are still stuck in people’s heads. Medical marijuana is a no-brainer (inb4 the inevitable pun) and reduces healthcare costs by providing certain patients specialized treatment at a much lower cost than prescription drugs that don’t even help as much.

      I don’t conceed that using weed is immoral as some think but, at some point, the ends have to start justifying the means for people who hold that view and I am curious as to when that starts to happen.

      Good one Polar. The only ones really objecting to these rulings are the recreational crowd.

    The ignorance displayed by this jurist is beyond belief. The use of lies and misinformation in the decision is reason for removal and retrial. This is a problem of a judge trying to make law instead of a real decision. All this does is cause more people to have to break the law to obtain the only medicine that helps their diseases.
