Prompted by “Rules for medical pot, finally?”: http://www.latimes.com/opinion/editorials/la-ed-medical-marijuana-regulations-20150618-story.html
“California lawmakers are, again, getting close to adopting the state’s first system to regulate medical marijuana. Even if they’re 20 years late and it’s difficult to craft laws for a largely lawless industry, legislators must not let another session end without passing a comprehensive bill to license and control medical marijuana.”
I understand there’s a distinction of utility between medical and recreational cannabis (actually, both of those areas often blend with one another), but instead of simply following through to form a recreational environment from de facto recreational legality (with stores responsibly selling both main categories of cannabis with proper distinction as needed), now it’s time to break out the serious (i.e. taxpayer expensive and liberty-infringing) judicial regulations?
What actual harm has occurred from California’s cannabis situation over the past two decades?
There’s no evidence of harm requiring broadly reaching judicial impact (that has proven itself worthless in addressing the relatively minimal cannabis abuse issue), and I challenge anyone to concretely prove the contrary here.
There’s ample evidence proving that highly regulated cannabis laws in other states have caused mass harm to people unable to get the right medicine when they need it.
Will our national society ever truly understand the lesson that established our nation — law abuse is worth opposing, so not the answer to other forms of abuse?
Is nobody interested in literally bringing judicial sanity to the “land of the free”?
Law against public safety is not the answer, but obviously a problem worth solving to better ensure that safety — i.e. a public intervention to promptly lovingly bring “justice” in the form of serious law addiction to justice.
It’s time to actually fix the actually broken.
