And Moses stood before the burning bush and took it all in and then heard the voice of Hashem talking to him? Of course he forgot where the bush was and we spent 40 years wandering around the desert following him whIle he was searching for it.

There are positive uses for all things created… but when it comes to dealing with a matter at the 'communal' level, we ought not legislate for the few, but the many.
Medical Marijuana is available in pill form under many prescribed names, It can be in natural organic form or synthesized… this is tried and proven, nothing new. The pill form has twice (2x) the analgesic properties without the euphoria (high) nor other many harmful side effects.
Most of those who push for marijuana (or other drug) reform are either looking to get high, to relieve themselves of social obligation (policing), or to get votes from supporting the issue.
Legalizing or decriminalizing is not the socially responsible thing to do and will in time compromise those who could truly benefit from alternative treatments in the longer haul. Marijuana 'decriminalization or legalization has always led to greater social problem; increased drug exposure to youth, addictions, mental health and health issues, greater demand on social assistance.
Be socially responsible … Take a pill.
