Hardly surprisingly, the chemical toilet's worst legislators have crushed a bill that would have allowed a medical necessity argument in cases where those in the law enforcement industries arrest chronic pain sufferers.
From the Sioux Falls Argus Leader's John Hult:
House bill 1227 would have provided for a medical necessity defense in marijuana cases. The House Health and Human Services committee voted 7-6 to defer the bill to the 41st legislative day, effectively defeating the measure.These are the same people who believe the Second Amendment is more important than the First.
One opponent of the measure, Rep. Melissa Magstadt (earth hater-Watertown), is a nurse practitioner backed by Big Pharma. Rep. Hickey is in the pockets of christofascists.
No one believes that adolescents should have access to video loottery either yet they bet freely in gray markets all the time and engage in commerce just like adults do.
It was laughable to watch this red state legislature stop more laws seeking to control teen drinking while hiding its federal DUI failures and blowing its wad on cannabis interdiction.
Red staters are those who can deny civil liberties to those “able-bodied” adults and uphold religious rights as absolutes.
Veterans are often shamed at clinics for seeking relief from the stress of their service.
Reminder: HHS holds the patent for medical cannabis.
