Denver (AP) -- A medical marijuana patient and advocate is taking
his fight over the legality of medical marijuana laws to federal
court. According to the Denver Post, Brandon Baker is arguing that Colorado's laws regulating medical-marijuana dispensaries are an unconstitutional violation of medical-marijuana patients' life and liberty. The federal government has warned dispensaries they could be subject to prosecution because use of the drug is still barred by federal law.

    My neck is sore. I wonder if I can get strung out on pot to relieve my "pain", lol. The entire concept of MMJ is a joke.

    Obviously, enough people use this as medicine and otherwise. They should just make it legal and regulate it.

    Interesting that States have the right to decide about booze but not marijuana. Its time for Americans to take back our country and restore individual freedoms.

    Okay, but if one doesn't believe in the medicine the feds say we can use, then one must also believe in freedom to use a non-mercury filled light bulb, one of the greatest inventions of modern times. One must also believe a commode can use more than a cup of water to flush. One must also believe in freedom to choose if one participates in the Healthcare/Marxism complex or not. One must also believe that an energy company can explore anywhere it can afford too. Freedom for all or freedom for none.
