Soooo on April 9th the NC Medical Marijuana Act was introduced to the General Assembly! Please urge your legislators to support this bill.

This bill has already passed the 1st reading now it just has to be read by the health committee and after it passed that its on to Judiciary II, if they pass it it just has to go to finance..

There are sooo many reasons why this bill should get passed ... and i cant think of any reasons why it shouldnt.. NC would be a great place for pot to be a cash crop... just have it take the place of tobacco..

Medical marijuana doesn't necessarily=cash crop. NC doesn't even allow the private selling of liquor. And for people that think medical marijuana is essentially going to open pot selling to convenience stores...you're nuts. In fact, I'd be willing to bet you'd have MORE local regulations enacted than you do now with us having a blanket federal/state ban.

Your right but it is a step in the right direction..and you see how cali has been since they have legalized it for medical use..although there arent huge companies that have taken it commerical there are large grow ops that cops turn the other check too..sometimes,( but usually in the bust its the federal agents and not so much the local authorities) so i think with the medical act people will see that marijuana isnt what the propaganda said.. and i can see people having a more laid back view on it.. and that lead to a having fewer penalties as time goes on, to the point where we can have legalization and taxation... And no I dont think convenience stores would be selling pot and i dont think they should.. it would have to be controlled just like alcohol .. Just think of an abc store but instead of liquor you buy pot.

You're talking beyond just medicinal uses at that point. 1st step would be limited to pharmacies...as it should. THEN if public opinion changes...eventually move to an ABC-type system.

Regarding complete legalization? No...public opinion has not changed. Pot-lobbyists know this and USE the medicinal route to get the foot in the door.
