    if a person is taking medication under a doctor's orders, medication that has possible side effects, a judge wouldn't be apt to take that into account as a mitigating factor?

    That isn't what he is saying or asking is it? He is saying recreational use yes? Like alcohol, recreational use...there are people in prison now for that same scenario...
    Even in the very best of situations, voting is still an unmitigated failure. The fact that any simple majority of individuals (mob) can determine an outcome that adversely affects the minority (mob rule) is against all natural rights. In the United State today, all who vote harm others so that they might benefit. By voting, they are also sanctioning theft of private property at the point of a gun, and the redistribution of that property to those who did not earn it.

    Really?

    You don't think a lawyer would argue that impaired senses were a mitigating factor in a crime?

    So that's a rather weak argument from someone who I thought was stronger than this.
    Well, before we go comparing my relative "strength," let's find out if lawyers would really not use such tactics.

    I dunno. Anything that should bring corporal or capital punishment.

    Many users prefer medical marijuana over prescription drugs


    As more states legalize cannabis consumption, many more people will likely use medical marijuana as a supplement to or substitution for prescription drugs, says a University of Michigan researcher.

    A new study by Daniel Kruger of the U-M Institute for Social Research found that 44 percent of medical cannabis users stopped taking a pharmaceutical drug, or used less of one, or both, in favor of cannabis.

    Kruger and co-author Jessica Kruger, a clinical assistant professor at the University of Buffalo, conducted the study to assess attitudes and use of medical cannabis and the mainstream health care system—described as either a doctor or hospital—among marijuana users.

    From the 392 usable responses, the majority (78 percent) reported using marijuana to help treat a medical or health condition. Users also had more trust in medical cannabis compared to mainstream health care, in part, because they rated marijuana better than pharmaceutical drugs on effectiveness, side effects, availability and cost.

    “This study advances knowledge in the evidence-based approach to harm reduction and benefit promotion regarding medical cannabis,” said Daniel Kruger, a member of the U-M Institute for Healthcare Policy and Innovation. “Given the growing use of cannabis for medical purposes and the widespread use for recreation purposes despite criminalization, the current public health framework focusing primarily on cannabis abstinence appears obsolete.”

    “To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.”

    ― Theodore Roosevelt

    And how many of these potheads will be using the non-THC products? A solitary percent?

    As has been explained, the "medical" argument is simply camouflage so potheads can justify getting stoned.

    This had nothing to do with the study.

    Better for them and for society than getting hooked on opioids. That's kinda the point of the study.

    You're just stuck in repeat mode. Getting people off harmful drugs in favor of less harmful drugs is a good thing, medically and otherwise.

    Yep.

    Funny. I've heard all your points before from you as well.

    Right. No THC is better.

    Everyone looks out their own window.
    I stand at my own window with Jesus.
    I know God has already won.
    I know that God in Genesis pronounced his creation “good”--at least twice.

    “I saw Satan fall like lightning from Heaven.”
    --Luke 10:18

    OK DOSER, If you trust in the God of Jesus, you will have no fear.

    I don’t smoke at all.
    Check your mind-reading skills as well as your ability to guess at my motives.

    If you have a question, just ASK.
