It took 13 years for the United States to come to its senses and end Prohibition, 13 years in which people kept drinking, otherwise law-abiding citizens became criminals and crime syndicates arose and flourished. It has been more than 40 years since Congress passed the current ban on marijuana, inflicting great harm on society just to prohibit a substance far less dangerous than alcohol. The federal government should repeal the ban on marijuana. We reached that conclusion after a great deal of discussion among the members of The Times’s Editorial Board, inspired by a rapidly growing movement among the states to reform marijuana laws.

It's disgraceful that citizens have to fight for their medication. Even more so that the gov is behind it.

delete previous post, a little too mean. This news is sort of old, as it happened awhile back and was the focus of many threads here. As the "N.Y. Times" goes, so goes "The Nation" (maybe).
