How would anyone like their personal medical records along with drugs 
prescribed to be public information?

Health Canada encourages medical marijuana for many conditions where 
it performs often better than prescription pharmacuticals.

U.S. President Barack Obama, when visiting his dying grandmother in 
Hawaii, stated that he observed elderly patientss using both 
marijuana and opiate painkillers and he couldn't tell the difference.

Locally, if fires are a real risk, why doesn't the city offer free 
inspections without judgement to rectify electrical problems and 
prevent possible fires?

Finally, I suspect if the fire department targeted elderly 
live-alones they could make sure they had safe cooking practices and 
fire extinguishers and prevent far more fires than grow-ops cause.

I am a member of Law Enforcement Against Drug Prohibition (LEAP). We 
are a 30,000-strong organization of law enforcement personnel who all 
believe that while drugs are not good, it is the "war on drugs" which 
is causing most of the casualties.
