4. This needs to be done on the Federal level, now!

Until marijuana is legalized, or at the very least decriminalized, on the federal level, people who actually need the benefits of marijuana can't use it. I go to a Pain and Symptom Management Clinic and can't even touch marijuana for it's medicinal benefits. It's still classified as a schedule one drug, right along with heroin. I've had to undergo urinalysis every two months for 17 years so they can make sure I don't take too much methadone, which they prescribe for pain, or take any "street" drugs.
So every pot-head can merrily puff away to their heart's content, but people who could actually benefit from the medicinal properties of marijuana are shit out of luck. I'm sick and tired of writing to my Senators, Congress-critters, newspapers etc. trying to address this miscarriage of justice, but there aren't enough of we people in the same boat to matter. We remain..........fucked.
