    Actually it is for medical purposes and legalization. However the concern over the possibility for some doctors to misuse the intended medical purpose is not, in my opinion, strong enough reason to oppose it. Rather it seems to me to be searching for a reason.

    Your opinion is predicated on your experiences, mine is predicated on mine. Nevertheless, your assumption is erroneous.

    I can tell you I am not a pot smoker but the pain I have endured over the past year from my messed up shoulder is making me give medicinal mary jane a thought- as my Mother lay dying a painful death with cancer, I would have given anything to have mary jane to give her to lessen her suffering- I actually signed to petition to legalize medicinal mary jane- while I am not interested in it helping Crist, I am interested in it helping those in need

    Maybe the state should work on decriminalizing possession of it first?

    Oh, don't worry. The person who is arrested for possession will assert that their possession is pursuant to a valid prescription, or that they may not have a prescription, but that they know someone who does and were carrying it for their family member/friend/some other person, who does have a valid prescription and were just on their way to bring them their drugs from where they purchased them.

    To be honest, I didn't even consider signing the petition for medical marijuana, not because of my view (I'll usually support a petition to give something a public referendum on principle) but my disdain for the one hawking it on TV and radio.

    Hall my sister died a few years back with cancer. Fortunately she lived in a state that allowed Medical Marijuana pills as morphine did no good. She was in constant pain and could eat nothing without losing it. They put her on marijuana pills and her last 90 days was lived in a lot better health conditions as a lot of the pain disappeared and she was able to keep some food down. With out the pills she was in constant agony . Medical Marijuana is a blessing to those in need

    It all depends on your definition of "successful" if that includes career choices such as cook, dishwasher, yard guy and pool boy then I'm sure lots of "successful" people get high and go to work everyday.

    Marinol is already legal in Florida, the drive for "medical MJ" is not to legalize that, it already is.

    Or get drunk and go to work every day. What's the difference.

    Oh, and before you start talking chit about cooks, I'd love to see you or anyone else on here work a line for a night. I will freely admit I couldn't handle it.

    The true component of MJ that seems to have medical uses is CBD which coincidently does not get you high, the strains high in CBD also are the ones that are in the lowest demand in medicinal MJ shops......shocking.

    If suggesting that many cooks are heavy pot uses is talking chit, I'll ask you this: Is the career as a cook high on your list for your children's future job?

    BTW my brother is a cook.

    No. But it is a hard job and one that requires a lot of thinking on your feet (literally). I think one of the more under appreciated and underpaid there is.

    But one that can be done high as a kite, none-the-less.

    In a high volume restaurant there is nothing at all easy about being a line cook. Many of them make fairly decent wages after a few years of training. Being a good server is also a tough job that can bring in decent wages.
