I got the when you gonna make The medicine I take Legal medicine blues I thought this was America Why aren't I free to choose? Now don't you quote the law to me If you do your gonna lose I got the when you gonna make The medicine I take Legal medicine blues

I take everything they give me
I take all their potions and pills Now maybe they work - maybe they don't
Sometimes I get to feelin ill But I've got my own prescription
Gets me through the day with a nod My doctor's name is Mercy
My pharmacist's name is God

It grows in the fields and on the farm It grows in the valleys wide
It grows great out on the fire escape It grows on the mountainside
Flowers and leaves up to the eaves Sometimes it helps me see
If nature made it so easy to find Why can't you let me be?

Men and women of conscience I really do need a friend
I never wanted to break the law But I hurt too bad to pretend
Please listen you law makers I'm reaching out my hand
You gotta realize you gotta legalize Everybody say Amen

  • Yeah Lori drugs that you become chemically dependent on, drugs that make you feel like a zombie, drugs that are so full of disgusting ingredients they can kill you!

  • "Wow, Gertie, I never realized how rude you were. We've been trying to be polite and have a real discussion and all you can do is bash. I'm a medical pt with a script in Cali. I'm less dependent on it than I was on rx pain pills or you are on BS."

    She's always that way when someone disagrees with her, from what I've seen. You won't be able to have a real discussion with her about this.

    I don't use marijuana, but I've been curious to see if it could help my ADHD. I've read a few studies about pot and ADHD, and I'd like to see how it works. But the stigma is too much for me to deal with. It's funny that it's more than ok for me to be on Effexor and Ritalin (both horrible drugs, imo), or Xanax (highly addictive, btw), but it's not ok for me to use pot. I do know that my concentration was far better in early college the short time I smoked it. My anxiety was better too, and I didn't have the icky feeling I did with Rx meds.

  • Doesn't it also "mask" your pain?

    It eases my pain, with less side effects than rx or otc meds. It helped my friend while she was dying of AIDS, helps another friends mom deal with cancer treatments, another friend with Lupus and the list goes on. Cannabis has been used medicinally for thousands of years. It was regularly prescribed by md's, in the US, as recently as 1937 and was made illegal against the opinions of the AMA.

  • Yeah, Coca Cola originally contained COCAINE, Friday. Wowww...ANd so what if they thought pot was a good thing way back when....eventually medical science had enough knowledge to see that it is harmful.
    Pot/marijuana is touted as a pain reliever and a mood elevator and a way to relax,etc, by those who are already dependent on it. Nobody will ever convince me it is a good thing,after reading actual Medical Websites.
    The pot heads always provide links to sites that have nothing to do with medical research or scientific evidence. They just have us read a "pot head site" that goes on and on about the wonders of hemp...marijuana..pot, man. Chill..Peace on...

  • I posted a bunch of great links tha last time we all argued about legalizing marijuana. Just look for MEDICAL websites, not a bunch of laidback, chilled pot heads online.

    Answer by gertie41 at 12:01 PM on Oct. 10, 2010

  • Gertie, The AMA has requested the Feds review Marijuana's classification. There are multiple medical studies showing this plants many medical applications and I don't appreciate the veiled insults. I'm a medical mj pt and advocate for legalization and I promise I'm no ignorant pothead. Ron Paul is certainly no pothead. If we legalized Industrial Hemp and utilized it for it's many possible uses we could dump oil and improve our economy and environment. Henry Ford made a car out of hemp fiber that ran on hemp oil.

    Google Harry Ainslinger, William Randolph Hurst, DuPont Chemicals and marijuana. Learn the history of this plant and it's prohibition. Everything you think you know is BS. I used to be a cynic like you but after over 10 years of research I know better now.
