If a person can get relief from pain after inhaling one puff of marijuana, 
I can just imagine who's behind the push to stop the legalization of the drug.

High-powered pharmaceutical companies cannot afford to have pot legalized.

They have the money to lobby our senators to see it never happens.

They have the money to give law enforcement agencies "grants" for the 
expensive spy toys most of them now have.

Legalize pot for those who need it and the drug companies will have to come 
up with something new with which to soak the senior citizens. I dare say 
they would lose 50 percent of their income to the weed.

I'm here to tell you that marijuana works to stop the pain and vomiting 
associated with certain illnesses.

Anyone who says otherwise is a liar.

I'm voting yes to legalize pot.
