Having total legal access to cannabis without threat of prosecution should put a big dent in addiction to more powerful and addictive drugs because it will keep people who smoke from experimenting with these drugs when they can’t find pot. This may be my personal opinion but I have seen this exact thing happen with a friend of mine. As a matter of fact, one of my very best friends in the whole world died 12 years ago from Sorocis and Hepatitis c due to the use of dirty needles. He was an avid pot smoker who was busted and prosecuted for possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance with pot. While in prison of all places, he became addicted to heroin. After he got out we all tried to help him and thought he really was doing great, that is until he was diagnosed with Hep C and that’s when he went down hill. He found a supplier for heroin and kept his habit fed while slowly killing himself…

Rosenberg’s comments bring to mind the tragedy of Peter McWilliams, an AIDS patient whose medical cannabis, that he used to control extreme nausea, was confiscated. He died soon afterward, from drowning in his own vomit.

The McWilliams case alone, is solid proof that the therapeutic benefits of medical cannabis, are real.

It’s Mr Rosenberg’s attitude, that would be a joke.

Except for the fact that it isn’t funny.
