Making Pot Respectable


Legalizing marijuana, at least for prescriptions, is becoming more and more commonplace. In Colorado, there is a huge battle between those who want to make it classy and those who want to keep it in the "stoner" age. Anyway, what blew me away was how much money is being made by selling it. One out-of-work handyman invested a couple of thousand dollars, rented a small shop, set out a dozen strains of weed and started ringing up $80,000 in sales. Unbelievable. I just biopsied a abnormal skin lesion that would not stop bleeding. It took 25 minutes when it was all said and done and three stitches in a purse-string formation to close the damn thing up. It turned out to be malignant. I got paid $30. Something seems wrong here.

Doctors, like pot dealers, should be allowed to return to honest capitalism.

Just plain legalize it, and treat it like hard liquor.

Don't insult my intelligence as a physician, try to claim there's a "medical" reason for it.
