    tried using that "product that destroys the lives of individual users along with entire families" line with me (I think they just write one form letter and pass it around to all their buddies in Congress), and I asked him why he didn't apply the same concern to alcohol? I've lost both a mother and a sister to alcoholism and not one person in my life ever died from organ failure as a result of smoking too much pot.
    I think the states are the way to go, as the Holder DoJ is certainly not sympathetic to MMJ users or the providers of MMJ.
    That's why I was so surprised when Oklahoma did this (and pleased).

      At least my congressman has found a new letter.
