It looks like the “Compassionate Use” law in California may not be so, well, compassionate. For example, how about those two poor providers of “mary jane” in Modesto who were convicted on federal trafficking charges? These simple folk were, according to their defense lawyers, in compliance with state law as they turned a $9 million profit selling weed. They even paid $1 million in taxes. Sure, all medical marijuana dispensaries are meant to operate as nonprofit entities. Okay, so they kind of messed up on that tiny detail. They were convicted as basically acting as drug dealers selling pot with the supposed excuse of treating medical symptoms. Can’t a company exaggerate a little on their marketing claims? I mean look at Vioxx or Vytorin. I think it is high time we stand up and allow all supposed practitioners to sell whatever herb or diet pill they want without the constraints of having any scientific proof or legal ramifications. All kidding aside, I hear these same salesmen and sales pitches on the “Dr. Bob” radio show all the time. He is the host who I have never heard tell his audience what his degree is (check out his picture with stethoscope here. Don't most chiropractors use a white jacket and stethoscope?) or the conflict of interests that his guest(s) may have. Why hasn’t he got trouble for that?
