In Montana we have had much work for and against Medical Cannabis. I would like to bring up a few things concerning plant. Not all of it medical. To begin with there are a few pharma drugs still derived from original plants. Most however are made from a man made copy plant essence. The problem here is that science as good as it may be always seems to miss something so an exact chemical copy is not possible. So these drugs never work as good as a plant based med. Not to mention the human body is not designed to withstand this kind of harsh chemical attack without causing problems.
Cannabis is a plant, much like garlic, ginkgo and a few others which in essence is pretty much a cure all for a vast assortment of problems. Also there is no way those against cannabis can complain that someone may get "high" off of it as their argument against this plant. Chemical Pharmas make one equally as "high" if that is the word you want to use.
From a medical standpoint cannabis is very sensible. From a social standpoint even for recreational use it is far less a problem than alcohol, both to the body, individual lives and socially.
Now let's look at another area. Economics. Socially our governments stand cost us vast amounts. First on the countless hours of legislative time in our state houses which cost us as taxpayers. Then the cost of chasing this plant or those who have it down. Next is court cost, then incarceration. Families are broken up and money taken from them to pay fines. Then we have more people on public assistance because of the busted families. Let's not forget the cartels and gangs and the problems involved there. The cost financially and socially just continue to skyrocket.
Next is the good side of the economics. In Montana we had over 7,000 jobs created (tax payers created, I might add) in order to supply the carded patients we had. Instead of the control freaks complaining about the number of patients who had cards, they should have looked at the fact that a very conservative figure for people in our state who could legitimately use cannabis is over 250,000. We are talking easily 10 times as many patients. Also that many times the workers needed to supply those patients with high quality products. That people is a lot of jobs, much tax revenue being added and the chance to lower the overall tax rates on everyone. BUT NO! The fools running our state would rather have 60 new chain store pharmacies built and opened. Causing more health problems which increases our medical spending and sending our hard earned money out of state to some corporate head quarters to benefit someone else.
I'm sorry people whether you use cannabis or not for medical reasons or recreational, our policies on this plant and those who have it are nothing more than complete ignorance. No matter how you slice it.

It probably won't appear to bode well to players, however gambling clubs have a valid justification for putting sticky confinements on their rewards.
