Re Clinical Pot Leaves You Sober, Yet Feeling No Pain -- June 3:

So the Canadian government is considering a clinical trial of
marijuana that will leave its subjects sober.

Typical! Let's take the only possible physical pleasure someone living
with AIDS, cancer or MS may experience and remove it from the equation.

Given all the usual side effects of the drugs used to treat these
diseases, wouldn't it be nice if this time the patients might enjoy
the treatment?
