Interesting thread...You learn that people can be quick to judge, then later recant their judgmental statements and apologize. Seek first to understand before judging someone. Many times we preemptively impose judgments solely for the purpose of protecting our ego. We think we know what we're talking about, when in fact, we know nothing at all.

Mark was itching to express his opinion on a topic for which many of us share a common interest. He had something on his mind. So, in retrospect, we ought to have just "listened" without passing judgment.

To the wimpy hypocrites and naysayers, shame on you all.


Regarding marijuana, I agree with Mark and Linkadge, et al. It possesses both medical value and the capacity to cause harm; here is your double-edged sword. Yeah, some people shouldn't use it. Fortunately, we have a brain that can decide whether the benefits outweigh the risks. In any case and until it's decriminalized, if that day ever comes, the botton line is that marijuana is still placed firmly in schedule one per the Controlled Substances Act. So, it's a prohibited substance that US citizens cannot use, cultivate or distribute. This is the case even if it's use is approved and recommended by a physician.

Personally, and if it pleases this forum, I do think that marijuana possesses legitemate medical value. This is true especially by virtue of medical-necessity for those who suffer from painful conditions who continue to experience intractable pain after exhausting all viable alternatives.
