Trump will likely invoke existing federal law to ban marijuana use for any reason nationally. He could do it tomorrow by executive order. This election likely spelled the end of our experiment with legal marijuana in several states. This is what the people want, otherwise they would not have voted for the Republican candidate. All Republicans, including our governor, are against the legalization of marijuana for any reason, even medical ones. "Its the law," they will say.

@Nodmcm Trump can't make an executive order tomorrow because he isn't president until he is sworn in in January.

Yes the $3 million that Asa just asked for to launch the medical marijuana must be a smokescreen (pun intended). WGT is a special kind of stupid

Nodmcm - be careful making assumptions that you don't know anything about. You don't know what Trump is going to do.

Nod - you sound like the Nazi! Trump won by the people, so get on board or move elsewhere! You are very racist in your comments. "The goal is to figure out a way to take health insurance away from blacks and Hispanics without taking it away from white people." Could this be because it's the working class that's paying for the Hispanics & blacks to have free health insurance & not have to work for a living? Get a job!

Oh Pearl, thank you for your last comment. It is so Trump. This is what we have to live with for at least 4 years.

I will be sure to tell all the black and Hispanic people that I know are working, that they are pulling a complicated lie as you say otherwise. And to the white people who I know on food stamps or government assistance, I guess they work when I dont know it.

wonder if Ben Carson ever paid back with all the money he has made his up bringing on government assistance. Or was it worth it to have a Great neurosurgeon help children? Complicated idea for the right to consider a Black, Black baby moma having a child she cant support, government assistance, rejects most science, conservative.

Pearl do you recommend a policy to go after blacks and hispanics................... how about the ones who have been here for years, hundreds of years.

States right, we want medical weed. Keep the Feds out of our business.

Mr. Charles - you & Nodmcm post the most racist comments than anyone else, but when a Republican rebuts your comments, we're the racists. Like you, my comments are general & not towards everyone. The truth hurts...
