      The time is right and the feeling is now,
      I see the walls crashing down,
      watch them fall all around,
      it aint a secret session,
      word is all over town,
      change is coming and we finally found a common ground.

    5. Keep up the good work, guys!

    6. I’m not sure if this post has direct relavence to the primary driving force for the legal and ethical explanations to why marijuana should be nationally legal.

      First of all, I have an advanced degree in a health related field. I recently performed a limited qualitative study of the effects of relief of migraine headaches. My study consisted of 10 people (8 women and 2 men), who where of the 30 to 60 age range. Each of the participants were currently under the care of a primary physician and a neurologist. They also agreed to the introduction of marijuana.

      Not to bore you. The results of my limited study (only one control group), showed that migraine/tension headaches relieved better with the introduction of marijuana opposed to not introducing marijuana, either prophylactically or during symptoms.

      In my opinion, if this study were repeated with other groups who have similar criteria, would show statistical significance.

      The actual point of this posting is not to show that marijuana can have positive effects on migraines. The actual reason for this post is that, I believe, people don’t want to go through the trouble of finding a doctor to sign off on a medical card, paying $200+ for a visit, and then having personal information that is stored in a database.

      People who have migraine, who use marijuana for relief, should not have to go through the trouble of dealing with this process. This is one of the primary reasons for marijuana to be legalized nationally.

      Thank you, so much, reading and posting responses.
