Oh, that's right. They just changed our law voted by the people and took away our rights for our choice of medication, so now we will not be able to get our medication. The changes they made will keep people from being able to get it. One thing I have not heard is that a lot of doctors cannot legally prescribe marijuana because they work with the federal government and because it is a federal law. They could lose the right to accept Medicare and other federal programs. Don't you wonder why our president, governors, senators and congressmen want to keep marijuana illegal? Could it be all the money they get from the pharmaceutical companies? These companies are very powerful and they have been very good at putting fear in people about marijuana. You know, Reefer Madness. They would lose billions if it became legal. Our government officials don't care about the people; they only care about their pockets. If they did care, marijuana would be legal in all states. We need to make it legal. Shame on you, Gov. Schweitzer, for not vetoing the new law.
