Boston Globe, Jimmy Tingle on medical marijuana bills

By Jimmy Tingle | December 20, 2009

There was a lot of excellence to celebrate this year in Massachusetts, as this issue’s Bostonians of the Year show. But there was also no shortage of absurdity. Here are just a few things that stand out for me.


2. Medical marijuana Although this still isn’t allowed in the state, the Legislature held hearings on a bill that would allow patients to use it under certain circumstances. I never understood why medicinal marijuana is illegal in the first place. When you consider all the more powerful drugs that are legal -- morphine, Demerol, Valium, and OxyContin -- how dangerous could pot possibly be for sick people? What are the authorities afraid of -- that patients will be staying up all night watching cartoons?
