Re: marijuana legalization.
It is actually cannabis. I have come across 17 U.S. medical patents for cannabis and there are hundreds more patents awaiting approval.
Do an Internet search — 700 medicinal uses of cannabis. You will find links to medical studies. Cannabis has over 10,000 uses, from paper to fuel oil.
So before anyone goes reefer madness about the legalization of cannabis, I suggest you sit down at your computer and do some reading.
