  1. And to the extent pot really is “medicine” shouldn’t it be subjected to the same FDA and other regulations medicines are subjected to? What if people grew their own opium poppies or coca leaves in their back yards? No, cannabis needs to be fully decriminalized this November for a number of reasons, not the least of which is to deflate the sense of entitlement and victimhood that this milieu seeks to wrap itself up in. Hog farming and strip mining are also legal, but cannot be carried out anywhere at will in flagrant disregard of the greater public good. In fact, one cannot even grow tobacco or hops without a federal permit. Then of course, there ‘s GMOs. So, what’s good for the goose is good for the gander.
