To the person that was against using drugs for mecidinal use ......drugs ARE good, look in your medicine cabinet those "drugs" help make better quality of life for many. You are misplacing words such as legalizing drugs because of those that ABUSE drugs. BIG DIFFERENCE!!!

"...Last year, the Republican-led New Hampshire legislature approved a similar bill, but it was vetoed by former Democratic Gov. John Lynch, who argued that the measure did not provide adequate restrictions on marijuana cultivation and prescription.."

THAT RIGHT THERE, is PROOF... the (D) party is ntrol. The Republicans are all about personal freedoms..

Isn't the Democratic Party just the newly defined Confederacy? They like control, not freedoms. If the Democratic Party is the majority, it's a direct reflection on the fact that America voters LIKE to be CONTROLLED.

Free state participants worked on the legislation in various roles. As well as"liberty republicans."

I wonder what influence the Free State Project had on that outcome. Being 19th makes them a johnny-come-lately to medical marijuana and the fundamental question is about civil rights and limiting government management of personal choices. You'd think the FSP would've chosen a better state with better weather.

Grass prohibition simply does not work. Our bodies are designed with receptors. A God given rite.

This is Excellent news. Thank You RT for covering such an important medical issue - This is a common sense story who's time has come!

I used to likewise be brainwashed. However - I finally looked into the facts behind Cannabis as medicine. I have heard story after story for what it has done for many good people. Recently one lady replaced some 40 prescriptions and is now only on - Cannabis.

I have asthma and I'm opposed to getting high since I cant smoke anything and I don't drink etc. But trust me. IF I had lung cancer. I would seek to use the mentioned to become well again.

Sincerely Speaking & God Bless
