I am not a pot smoker, yet couldn't agree with Michael Norton's point
at all. There are people who exist in this nation who do not want to
put pharmaceuticals into their bodies, and I am one of these people.
Doctors may say there are more effective drugs, yet what are the side
effects? I've witnessed drug companies come to hospitals to "sell"
their wonder drugs, complete with catered lunches and perks. So of
course the physicians will push the pills, especially if they're
receiving "kickbacks" from these drug companies.

Money speaks louder than morals in this society. And the
pharmaceutical companies are screaming the loudest!
