Stupid, stupid, stupid prohibition

Okay. In case you missed this when I said it before, I have never used an illegal drug - ever. This is not due to some kind of great virtue or principle. I just have never had the opportunity or the motivation at the same time. But I really believe very strongly that marijuana needs to be legalized.

Now go on over to Alternet and read this article: "10 Reasons the U.S. Military Should (Officially) Use Pot". Here's the lead:

Medical marijuana may have a host of advantages over other treatments for traumatized vets, but the VA won't even study its efficacy.

When I read about the drugs they WILL prescribe, this stance becomes even more ludicrous in my mind.
