I am responding to your e-mail on medical marijuana. I have served over the last 10 years on a national not-for-profit board with a lady who is a Director at the only legal and government-sponsored medical marijuana growing facility. She has over the years explained to me the need for the use of this product. While I don’t disagree with what the doctor ordered between pain pills and medical marijuana, it is my understanding that this type of marijuana is different from what most people purchase to smoke when they buy on the street. Unfortunately, I don’t think that this type of legislation will pass here in the “Bible Belt”. I am currently trying to pass legislation that allows wine in the grocery stores and again the liquor lobbyist has threatened me to “unleash the preachers” across the state. However, I will watch this bill.Please keep me informed if you have further information.
