      With the invention of K2, the Japanese scientist’s discovery (proof) of exactly how pot/thc interacts with the brain, makes pot legal by definition, according to our glorious Bill Of Rights (Life, Liberty, & the pursuit of happiness), imnsho, no?

      [ My response: In fact, it says we have the right to persue happiness; while possession is a felony in all 50 states]

      They found thc interacts/effects one particular neurotransmitter, which is soly responsible for balancing stress, & allocating happiness.

      Now the question is, why can’t some fancy lawyer for Norml or ANY attorney for that matter, connect the dots with the Supreme Court over this FACT?

      [My response: The stonewall of this whole issue is this: sure, somebody might be able to push a class action suit against the Feds; but it takes a massive amount of money to do so; well out of the range of anyone to whom it matters. Those who have this sort of funds available, are those same people who are getting rich off the arrest, prosecution, mandated ‘rehab’ and kickbacks from the alcohol and tobacco industries. They can keep an issue tied up in court so long, you’ll go broke trying to persue it, and have to drop the case. Never confuse a politician with facts; they just get in the way of campaign funds from high sources.]
