THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS MEDICAL MARIJUANA” according to current U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams. Response by: NORML Atty. Steven Groce:
I think it could also be argued that ALL Use of Marijuana, is Medical, because isn’t it true that any use of Marijuana, is based on a perceived need, whatever that may be? If one uses Marijuana to relieve Stress, or deal with Pain, or to simply Chill Out, those are all perceived needs that one could also take a variety of other prescription medications to deal with, rather than Marijuana. Let’s remember, there is a prescription drug for everything, Opiates, Anti-Depressants, Anti-Anxiety drugs, etc., etc. Therefore, ANY perceived need, for using Marijuana, can be argued to be Medical.

LEGAL DEFENSE! One would think: After the passing of Amendment 2, the attitudes of Prosecutors in Missouri, would be changing. Unfortunately, Not the case! Both MO. residents, and unlucky visitors, are still being charged, and even arrested, for Cannabis offenses. Even 10 grams or less is still a D Misdemeanor Criminal Drug conviction. Don’t pay the fine, and Don’t take the Conviction. Steven F. Groce, NORML LIFE MEMBER ATTORNEY, Defending Cannabis cases in Missouri.
STAND UP, SPEAK OUT, AND DEMAND LEGALIZATION;
and: LET US PROTECT ALL OF OUR RIGHTS!
