The Feds have already proven themselves a failure at addressing the "drug war". The only area in which they are currently excelling is by stealing the property of the American people through civil forfeiture. Medical marijuana works. It alleviates horrible suffering more safely than opiates. Yes, there will be those abusing marijuana. If you have not noticed, Brad, our current president and the republican (your) majorities in our government have been causing significant anxiety at home and worldwide. To reduce drug use, consider giving Americans stable homes, stable work, and stable healthcare. Leave medical marijuana to the states, get out of the civil forfeiture "business", and create some stability for the American people.
