Legal We always try to avoid politics like the plague here on OSNews, but sometimes, it's hard to avoid it. Take the case of Joel Tenenbaum, who could be liable for over 1 million USD if the Recording Industry Association of America gets its way. While many hoped for a change of pace when it comes to these matters, Barack Obama's Department of Justice has squarely sided with the RIAA.

Medical marijuana is a joke and if you've been to LA you know you can get all the 'legal' weed you want by saying you have insomnia or arthritis or back pain or any freakin' load of bull you want.

"Why... it's nothing but a tin of red herrings in heavy oil!"

That argument boils down to "because there are people who use it for frivolous reasons, there must be no medicinal value." When I was in high school, one of my classmates was actually stupid enough to overdose on Gravol - does your reasoning apply there as well?

So listen buddy, go smoke your ganja and pop in your favorite Bob Marley CD you paid twenty bucks for

Personally, I've never smoked in my life - but now I'm strongly tempted to. If just to dissociate myself from the sort of idiocy displayed in the above quote.
