75. It is "medical" when it is being used
for medicinal purposes. OK, you friend bought you some "medicinal marijuana" in a bottle labeled "girly girl". Big deal. Vicodin is a controlled DRUG for pain. Guess what! It has an illegal street value for use for recreational purposes. I'd wager 2/3 of the prescription pain medication, plus a lot more prescription medication is sold illegally.

Personally, I take seven different prescription medications a day, some of them multiple times a day. I've been told by my brother-in-law, who is a chemist at a major pharma, that I have a gold-mine here, if I sold it. Though, with the lousy side effects, I don't know why anyone would take them, but they do. So, if marijuana is a natural substance that evidently is multi-purpose, why tell people suffering from pain that they can't have it? Oh yeah, because the pharmas can't play.
