Medical Marijuana Law a Front for More Marijuana Use?

I love social do-gooders. Much of the time I am one myself.

But, Colorado's medical marijuana law, passed with good intentions to help chronically illl Coloradans has gone bust.

Find this story here.

In 2000, Colorado voters approved Amendment 20 which legalized small amounts of cannabis to be used by patients under the care of a physician. The rationale- many Coloradans with serious illnesses would finally get relief with medical marijuana. Right.

Most of us knew what would eventually happen. Word would get out and the fraudulent schemes would occur. In essence, marijuana use would be legalized in Colorado. Now, the number of Coloradans claiming a need for it is soaring!

My opinion. This law needs to be repealed.
