      Wow, 5 days after Colorado went legit and did not go into Chaos. New York gave way to medical Marijuana, just a matter of time before Marijuana is reclassified as a schedule 2 or 3 drug, or it becomes legal and regulated all over.

      Yeah! Thank you Allen and NORML for the Sunday update, you guys never stop working. Go New York!

      @Azteca once the rest of the nation sees that all the scare tactics were wrong, I agree marijuana will be rescheduled.

      If this is true, i’m going to ask my doctor at my next appointment to consider me for medical marijuana to help with my Spasticity. I have been doing stretches with a licensed PT for over six months, and have come a long way. But I hit a wall, and I don’t do well with medications. Case in point, I went to the hospital a few weeks ago for dizziness from a vitamin D prescription.

      Weed the people – isn’t that nothing but positive tho, as public opinion has reached a point in which pro a ganja stance is politically favorable? The change of stance is political pandering; the subtext behind it is profoundly significant
