Hank ChalmersWhat really needs to happen is doing away with the fact the plp of Vermont have been removed from the policy making bills into law. There is no ballot vote for the plp to override this corrupt system. When the plp have been removed from the system the system is corrupt. If we the plp of Vermont were not shut off from these closed doors in the state house. Imagine where we would be today? Think about all that has happened in our state that we the plp have had no say in… we must not worry about automatic voting registry. Yet we must be more concerned about the corrupt system that’s in place now. Allowing for people to vote on all issues opening closed doors allows all plp to have their say. We must fight for our rights to be able to have a ballot vote system that can override the system if the system isn’t working for the plp..13 hours ago

Eric ChanAre you ready for Judgment Day? The Bible says that all will stand before God to give an account of every thought, word, & deed. Will you be innocent or guilty on that day? Let’s look at the Ten Commandments to see if you meet God’s standard. Have you ever lied or stolen? (regardless of value) Ever looked with lust and therefore committed adultery in your heart? (see Matthew 5:28) You may see these as "no big deal" but God sure doesn’t. He is Holy and said, "be Holy, for I am Holy." God sent His Son, Jesus, to live the perfect life we never could. He took God’s wrath on the cross for sinners. Jesus paid the punishment for our sins against a Holy God. Then Jesus rose from the dead.

Medical marijuana can help with pain, insomnia, PTSD, tremors……….it can help as an alternative to opiates. Our Attorney General Jeff Sessions thinks "only bad people smoke marijuana." He is so far out of touch with this issue that it is sad. The United States Department of Justice www.facebook.com/SenKirstenGillibrand/videos/151235528754851/
Medical marijuana is legal in 28 states and the District of Columbia, where lawmakers recognize medical research showing cannabis can alleviate symptoms of serious conditions, including epileptic and seizure disorders in children, cancer and Parkinson’s Disease. Sixteen more states have laws regulating cannabidiol.
However, medical marijuana remains illegal under federal law, leaving patients and providers vulnerable to arrest—even if they are in compliance with their state laws. As a currently classified Schedule I drug, federal law restricts medical marijuana research, as well as fair and safe financial services for medical marijuana-related businesses. U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, along with Senators Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Rand Paul (R-KY), have introduced a bipartisan bill—the Compassionate Access, Research Expansion and Respect States (CARERS) Act—to recognize that marijuana has accepted medical use, and that it is the states’ responsibility to set medical marijuana policy. www.gillibrand.senate.gov/issues/medical-marijuana2 · 1 week ago

“It’s been a long time coming, but New Hampshire is finally moving toward adopting marijuana policies that are consistent with the state’s ‘Live Free or Die’ motto,” – MPP New England Political Director Matt Simon … See MoreSee Less
New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu (R) is set to sign a marijuana decriminalization bill into law. On Thursday, the state’s House of Representatives took final action on legislation to remove criminal penalties for small amounts of cannabis, setting up the state to finally become the last in New Englan…
Dennis R. RoarkNo state or federal government should have the last say in a matter that pertains to what anyone does with there own body, take a census from the people of that state if the people are for it hold a special vote from the people and when voted and passed by the people use the first dollars of revenue from sales reimburse the state for the cost of the special vote….10 · 3 weeks ago

Deena LouiseRiddle me this Chuck…..if marijuana is not medicine, then why does the same government you work for have a patent on it saying it can protect and heal the brain? Why would GW pharma be wasting millions trying to market it? Why was it in our U.S. pharmacopoeia for almost a century? Why did the exhaustive Shafer Commission report recommend it "be studied for its promising medicinal benefits? Why did the government set up a CIND program in response to Robert Randall’s court win? Why is that same CIND still helping patients today? Why did Robert Randall’s progressive, untreatable glaucoma become managed and controlled with the marijuana you supplied him ? I could go on and on…the hypocrisy and straight out lies are astounding73 · 4 weeks ago
I use MJ daily to combat pain associated with scoliosis and lower back problems. It works FAR better than hydrocodone or oxycodone…the shit that big pharma wants to push. I can be productive on MJ vs. having a brain like jelly on a ‘codone’.

Dan BrickleMost pharmaceutical drugs are designed after actual plant substances. Aspirin is from Willow tree bark.
Marijuana is not medicine but opiates are? Marijuana is not medicine but artificial chemicals designed to behave like marijuana does is medicine?
You need to look at yourselves and realize how dumb you sound and look defending oppression.

Beige AllenLooking at the comments makes me wonder who actually read the article and who just commented on the headline. He does not say that he does not see the potential for it, what he says is "If it turns out that there is something in smoked marijuana that helps people, that’s awesome," he said, speaking at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio. "I will be the last person to stand in the way of that. … But let’s run it through the Food and Drug Administration process, and let’s stick to the science on it."
Sticking to the science is not a bad idea. Feel good changes to policy all too often just get undone by the next group that takes office. Policies based on hard science tend to stick longer and make it harder for the next group in office to strike them down.
In the article he also acknowledges the legitimate studies that have been done to show that it has benefits for children with epilepsy and agrees that access must be made for studies to be done. So he’s not an idiot, just cautious.10 · 4 weeks ago
Rachel FarmerHe is completely uninterested in whether marijuana has medicinal benefits or not. The DEA stays in business if they have a war on drugs. Kids getting the medicine they need means nothing to him. He is employed to keep the status quo. If he had cancer, Crohn’s disease, a child w epilepsy or any of the many issues marijuana could help he would change his tune. Cause ONLY when it happens to them do they give a fuck about anyone else6 · 4 weeks ago
Laura SaldarriagaIdiot. I’m a multiple stroke survivor who lost all the feeling on the right side of my body. After 6 years, I got off of about 7 different pills with marijuana AND I feel normal again. Of course they don’t want it legalized, then everyone would ditch the pills. Weird how healthcare always seems to be a "top priority" only when doctors and pills are involved. Mention marijuana and NO IT’S A BAD ADDICTIVE DRUG, yet we give heroin addicts methadone??? Does that make any sense Mr. Rosenberg? Your holding up progress with that mindset. We don’t need more studies by the FDA, when you discredit the "studies" and accounts done by real survivors with disabilities.9 · 4 weeks ago

Jessica TomlinsonHe is an idiot. Marijuana is not addictive because it does not produce the dopamines like most things that are addictive causes because of an enzyme that marijuana produces. Heroin oxy math all the opioids even food releases dopamines so your brain says oh that feels good. And ya know what else…science freaking says so…its proves everyone wrong.4 · 4 weeks ago

Virginia LipseyIt’s ridiculous that it’s in the same class with those drugs it’s nothing like that! I don’t understand why alcohol is legal but marijuana isn’t everywhere. I know for a fact that the gateway drug to all the heavy stuff is alcohol not marijuana like it’s been said for so many years now couldn’t be further from the truth. You cannot even OD on marijuana! So how can that even be classified in the same category with LSD that’s just STUPID!! Alcohol kills in so many ways.4 weeks ago
Denise Stone BennerMight want to ask him why they have the patent on cannabis and ask about the trials they used on our humans during the 70s for cancer, found it worked and shut that down, leaving the people in the study healed to watch others die without it.2 · 4 weeks ago
Karron Moore-ThompsonI have an AVM in my brain and it’s pressing on the brain stem. The doctor doesn’t know if I’m having severe panic attacks or seizures. Cannabis controls these episodes for me. Nothing else has helped. It also helps with the depression that goes along with any long term illness. Tell me HOW it is not medicine?2 · 4 weeks ago
Diane Brossard BarthelI can just speak for myself, but as a retired nurse that had to retire early due to multiple sclerosis, weed makes my pain and the constant difficulty walking bearable. I really don’t want to start on addicting opioids. As a nurse, I’ve seen how easily it is to get addicted. Weed works for me so I can at least function. I realize it’s not for everyone. But it’s totally non addicting and please don’t tell me it leads to harder drugs! Was a nurse long enough to know it does not. If anything leads to that, it’s the biggest destroyer of life there is, and it’s perfectly legal, alcohol!4 · 4 weeks ago
