Re "Raid on pot college stuns activists," April 3

Oaksterdam University founder Richard Lee's disability 
notwithstanding, the reason I can't get on board with the indignation 
everyone else has about the raid on the pot trade school in Oakland 
is because the medical marijuana debate has been co-opted by just 
plain old potheads who want to get high and, in a lot of cases, make 
some money.

Instead of getting happy about finding a "doctor" so you can get your 
card for (pick one) anxiety, finger cramps, hangovers or hangnails, 
just admit you like the high and man up and fight for legalized 
marijuana, period. Don't pretend to be supporting people who need it 
for a real medical problem.
