This by-the-people for-the-people stuff is poop. I mean, I can imagine an Iraq war vet who'd lost both legs when he stepped on a mine. Not only would Veterans Affairs physicians have to declare the vet disabled, but under SB423, not just one more doctor would also have to examine them but two, before they can be certified to possess pot for their pain. You make them really want it, crawl for it - as it should be. That's how I got to where I am today. I mean, you've really helped stuff 'em by requiring that those so-called caregivers (drug pushers) can't charge for their services or their pot. Damn right. They should do it out of the goodness of their hearts, like my doctors do, not for money. Besides, all those dirty, stinkin', pot-smoking, commie hippies talk about free love. Now we're giving them free pot. And they still complain. Jeeze Louise. I gotta go. Thanks for showing real guts in shutting down one of the few so-called growth industries in Montana. (Get it? Growth industries). Thanks for sacrificing all those other people's jobs on the alter of your beliefs. Now that former President Bush got Osama bin Laden, we can all sleep peacefully. Oops, my day pass is almost over. I must get back for my meds. Why not join me? I have always wanted to have a neighbor just like you. It's a beautiful day in this neighborhood. Could you be mine? Would you be mine? Fredric Alan Maxwell, Missoula - --- MAP posted-by: Richard R Smith Jr.
