Representative (Jeff) Essman (R-Billings) is indeed in the hands of
big "pharma." How noteworthy that he has no problem if the active
ingredient is supplied by them does he. Is he going to to see to it
that they supply the pill at no profit as well?

Of course not. Just one more member of the finest legislation money
can buy. We don't need his moral directives. Is he worried about the
economy? Well, judging by all the vacant real estate once occupied by
registered caregivers? I guess not. Or by the business that supplied
all things related to growing, and there's a lot. Or the lost
advertising revenue by the no-longer-existing providers.

The trickle down effect in every area of the business community is

As for growing it oneself, ask those who can't walk, or bend over, or
lift how that's gonna go.

As for non profit, why "ain't that socialism?".

Who works for nothing in this country? Certainly not Rep.

When I'm not working to repeal a law passed by an overwhelming
majority of voters in Montana, I'll be working to see that a
self-righteous, religiously-motivated, demagogue like Essman loses his
sweet deal in politics and like the rest of us has to work for a
living. Then see if he agrees to do it for free.
