for those of us with chronic, 24/7 pain, isn't it long past time to decriminalize the use of marijuana for pain management? some states (including montana) allow it with strict regulation, others do not. and the federal government, as usual, is more behind the times than anyone.

prohibition has never worked. a century and a half ago, abraham lincoln understood that. the current so-called "war on drugs" is an abyssmal failure. other substances aside, it makes so much more sense to legalize marijuana completely, then (just as we do with alcohol) regulate and tax its sale, thus (a) assuring standards of quality control, and (b) providing much-needed revenue to state and/or federal governments.

but i guess that would be too logical.
