After the Failure of IM 27 lawmakers attempting to restrict Med MJ even more

Well, we should have seen this coming, a NEW drug war has emerged after right wingers killed IM 27 with a campaign littered with lies;

Lawmakers want to make it more difficult to expand the list of conditions that might qualify a citizen for a medical marijuana card.

Patients who want relief for conditions not explicitly listed in the law ought to ask their elected lawmaker to add the condition for them during the legislative session. 

Yeah, that sounds convenient and legitimate! NOT! As I have told people in the past, all Medical Cannabis is, is aspirin that gets you high. It’s a pain reliever, sleep aid and relaxant. It can and should be prescribed for ANY ailment. Isn’t it funny how a group of mostly white male business owners with NO medical, chemistry or biology degrees seem to know so much about reproductive health and chronic pain disorders.

I mean, I knew they were big group of smart fellers (or was it fart smellers?) but they constantly amaze me with all of their genius medical advice and recommendations 🙁

Reefer Blindness is strong referring to IM-27 campaign filled with lies. Unless it is FDA approved it’s just another garden variety drug dealer selling snake oil claims with zero legitimate science to back it up.

Abortion and medical marijuana restrictions…. What’s next, my Milk Duds?… AND, can you honestly have fireworks at Mt. Rushmore without duds? #FreedomBaby! #GiveMeLibertyOrGiveMeMeth

I just want marijuana brownies. It’s not to much to ask. Try pot for brownies only but make it happen.

Let’s vote to decriminalize it at the county level in 2024!

Why are you brining “race” into the equation with:

“Isn’t it funny how a group of mostly white male business owners with NO medical, chemistry or biology degrees seem to know so much about reproductive health and chronic pain disorders.”

You sound like a Leftist Shill crying about everything being racist. Stick to just the facts of the topic and stop trying to race bait a topic that has nothing to do with Race, ridiculous

And how many non-whites serve on state legislature? I am not sure, but my guess is about 1-3 and they are likely Native American. I can’t find that a black person has ever served in the State Legislature.

Chet Jones served two terms in the State Senate from ’92 thru ’96 from District 10 (Eastern SF and Brandon). He was black. He beat Randy Austad (’92) and Steve Haugaard (’94), but lost a close re-election in ’96 to Dave Munson.

The late Gil Koetzle used to tell a story how the first time he and Chet when to Pierre for orientation, they went to a restaurant in Pierre for lunch, but one of the waitresses was overheard saying she wouldn’t wait on them, because she didn’t wait on “those kind of folks”…. And, to think, this was 28 years after the passage of The Civil Rights Act.
