It Will Not Happen In Oklahoma
Legalization of marijuana - medical or otherwise. Perhaps I am wrong, but I cannot see this ever happening in the state of Oklahoma. Liquor by the drink was hard enough to get through the concrete walls of morality, to pass something as controversial as medical marijuana under this Pharisaical leadership just is not going to happen. The only way it will be even considered by the hyperbolic moral majority in Oklahoma, is to see one of their own suffering under immense pain with no hope for relief. It's okay, of course, to prescribe medication that is highly addictive and destroys the body from the inside out, but marijuana is "of the devil." Personally, I have a difficult time reconciling my position about legal alcohol while marijuana remains illegal. The hypocrisy stacks up so fast in Oklahoma, you need wings to stay above it.
What difference does it make to me or to the average Joe? Not much. We're too concerned with staying alive than we are changing public policy.
Of course, these are just my opinions and I could be wrong. But I seriously doubt it.
