If other medications work better than marijuana, so what? Suppose medical science succeeds in creating an inhaler that delivers all the medicinal benefits of cannabis without the side effects of dry mouth, red eyes, and that pesky “high”. Suppose the inhaler is even proven to be superior to natural vaporized cannabis. So what? If my choicesbetween two safe and effective medications are the $50 / month inhaler I get at CVS or the pot plant I grow in my closet, what justification is there for arresting me for the latter, aside from protecting the sales of the former? It would be like arresting people for planting willow trees because aspirin in pill form is superior to chewing willow bark for the acetylsalicylic acid.
