Medical Marijuana: What Does Your Vote Mean?

Find out what a yes or no vote on Question 3 will mean.

On Nov. 6, Massachusetts voters will be asked to vote on three questions along with the state and federal political races.

Question 3 is regarding the legalization of medical marijuana.

"This proposed law would eliminate state criminal and civil penalties for the medical use of marijuana by qualifying patients. To qualify, a patient must have been diagnosed with a debilitating medical condition," the  Massachusetts Secretary of State's website says.

According to the website a "Yes" vote would allow for patients to smoke marijuana if it is prescribed by a doctor.

A "No" vote would make no change to the current law and keep the practice illegal.

Several years ago, I had surgery on my right shoulder. Pain medication was prescribed..."take one capsule every 4 hours." I took one capsule. I was down for over 20 hours. When I came to, I felt like I had been hit by a truck. The next time I felt discomfort, I smoked a small amount of marijuana ...pain gone, no after effects. I threw the pills out. Then I wrote: Shoulda Robbed a Bank My contribution to helping point out just how ludicrous our pot laws truly are. I would be honored by your review .

I smoked my first joint in December, 1967, at the tender age of 21. Now, a mere 45 years later, I still smoke pot. I have never 'graduated' to 'harder' drugs. I am living proof that prohibitionist propaganda is a fallacy...a blatant lie. The worst experience I had with marijuana was spending 5 years in Federal Prison for a pot offense. To this day, there are THOUSANDS of Americans in prison for a plant. The 'war on drugs' is a farce...a total misdirection of time and money.. if a law is wrong, it is wrong. I was taught in school that ours is a free country. Has that changed?
