Anybody know where I can find trend data showing whether or not marijuana consumption in Colorado has increased or decreased since passage of their medical mj law?

pass this around! Here's a key quote:

> This proposed action expands the schedule III listing to include 
> formulations having naturally-derived dronabinol and products 
> encapsulated in hard gelatin capsules.

There is a lot more to the doc but I only pasted the summary.

DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE

Drug Enforcement Administration

21 CFR Part 1308
[Docket No. DEA–344P]

Listing of Approved Drug Products Containing Dronabinol in Schedule III
AGENCY: Drug Enforcement

Administration, Department of Justice.

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking.

SUMMARY: This proposed rule is issued by the Deputy Administrator of 
the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to modify the listing of the 
Marinol® formulation in schedule III so that certain generic drug 
products are also included in that listing. Several products are 
currently the subject of Abbreviated New Drug Applications (ANDAs) 
under review by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Each 
product is a generic formulation of Marinol® and contains dronabinol, 
the (-) isomer of delta-9- (trans)-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is 
a schedule I controlled substance. Due to variations in formulation, 
these generic Marinol® products do not meet the specific conditions 
specified in the current schedule III listing.  This proposed action 
expands the schedule III listing to include formulations having 
naturally-derived dronabinol and products encapsulated in hard gelatin 
capsules. This would have the effect of transferring the FDA approved 
versions of such generic Marinol® products from schedule I to schedule 
III.

Subj: 003 PayPal has banned WAMM
From: Rick Steeb <>

I recently was notified by PayPal that my monthly [pittance] donation 
subscription had been canceled "by WAMM" [a damned lie/error] after some 3 1/2 
years of the convenience for me and the important source of donation cash flow 
for WAMM.

Might as well punch Mother Teresa in the mouth.  

What can we do to encourage PAyPal [eBay] to reverse this harmful and despicable 
act?
