Medical Marijuana Passes In Conn.
May 07, 2012
Connecticut became the 17th state in the nation to legalize marijuana for various medical ailments, when the state legislature passed a bill early Saturday authorizing its use.
Gov. Dannel Malloy said he looks forward to signing the bill when it reaches his desk, reports the Connecticut Post.
The bill would allow the state Department of Consumer Protection to set up as many as 10 secure indoor cultivation and distribution networks for people who are certified by doctors and pay a $25 fee.

Police already ran an article about how Russian and Armenian gangs are fighting for control of the dispensaries here in CA. It goes to show that legalizing a drug that is harmful to people isn't going to solve the problem. Also here in CA, more crashes are being attributed to people high on marijuana; some bystanders are being run over and killed like the photographer in Joshua Tree, CA, and more kids are trying dope because they see adults using and have easier access to it. Education, Enforcement & Rehabilitation together are the only way to combat the issue and get results.

Connecticut... You're idiots. You've just bought into a whole lot of trouble at the behest misguided "do-gooders" and purpose driven special interests (organized crime groups).
