Medical Marijuana Bill Goes Up In Smoke In Illinois

Illinois won't become the sixteenth state in the nation to pass a medical-marijuana law.

Yesterday a bill that would have allowed the state to institute a three-year pilot program to legalize the medicinal use of marijuana failed in the Illinois House by a vote of 53 to 61.

The bill faced steep opposition from law-enforcement officials, who argued before the Legislature that the law would give people without legitimate medical needs easier access to the drug.

It seems to me that there is a rather easy access to high quality herb anyway, so fuck the legislature.

Like, wow man... this totally harshes my mellow...

But seriously, it's time people -- if you don't legalize it, at least decriminalize it.
