Steiner completely lost it, in the post "Helping with hair" about his wonderful insult on a young girl with cancer.

AND if medical weed is allowed through out NYS, the taxes could then go to education, like coumo is doing now in his new budget.

LOL, Steiner it always something else isnt it, no matter what it is its from something else. Perhaps you missed this part "Cuomo outlined a limited initiative last Wednesday to authorize medical marijuana for patients at 20 hospitals - which would establish the test program under state Department of Health regulations - using his administrative powers rather than pushing for legislation.

"We will monitor the program to evaluate the effectiveness and the feasibility of a medical marijuana system,".....how much do you think was spent on this stiener. wake up will you.

So what you think is going to cost less to implement, a bill to allow medical weed or millions for education.

hey dk, talk to ed ballinger, cade, cronig, judeye,christopher for help in building the steinertron machines. apparently you lack the ability to think so you mock like cronig does. we gotta get the FDA out of medicine. I have told you enuf facts that anyone with half a brain could build steinertrons. but that is what you lack. critical thinking skills, so out goes the name calling.

every good moral law that has been put on the books, has been used and abused, we cite "no fault divorce" as a perfect example, a huge cash cow for lawyers everywhere

Sounds ok. However, drugs prescribed by doctors find their way to abusers. Seems a hole appears in many good efforts. Milk and Mary Jane example does not fit.

If it helps alleviate suffering(and is strictly controlled and administered) I have no issue as I have said in the past. I am against introducing/legalizing another mind altering substance into society. Why is that necessary? We have enough stupefied people running around without compounding the problem.

"maybe, just maybe some kid could make a steinertron for his family and all those "cancer victims" vomiting from poor understanding of cancer."

You've already cured some forms of cancer (or so you say). So why don’t you do the world a favor and release your (so-claimed) cancer-curing steinmirage and help those families right now?

facts for liberals. there are 2,800,00 students in NY . each year 100,000 people in NY get diagnosed with cancer. do the math. we would need 28 years to equal the number of students. get a bigger bang for the public with choice, not for marijuana but vouchers in our schools. maybe, just maybe some kid could make a steinertron for his family and all those "cancer victims" vomiting from poor understanding of cancer. the cell aint the unit of life, CO2 is, just kidding cade. oh those libs, dumb as always and proud of it. they are trying to help !

Marijuana is not addictive. There are a millions upon millions of people who smoked pot in their youth, some still do, most don't as they age. If it was addictive this would not happen. It is not a gateway drug for the same reason. Just because some drug addicts smoked pot doesn't make it gateway. Most people who become alcoholics drink milk when they are young, does that make milk a gateway drug? We are wasting billions of dollars every year on our judicial system and incarcerating people for marijuana. This needs to stop. This step is a first step, but too limited.

This is a common-sense approach for the proven benefits of medical marijuana. And we can let Colorado (and soon) Washington State be the “experiments” decriminalization/commercialization.

this is an interesting thing by cuomo, choice for medical marijuana. Hmm, I bet there are more students in NY that would benefit from choice in schools, via a voucher program than there are cancer patients in NY. but i see the gushing over this as the cancer patients are suffering. Of course, noone is suffering in the big city schoool or any city. Its those teacher unions again. if medical scince understood cancer better we would not have so many sickly cancer patients. But thats another story.cuomo is showing he cares and thats all that matters. since before the civil war it was illegal to educate slaves. we se this has carried on to our present day schools. keep them democrat. thats the way it is. I read a good article in the book section of the WSJ on this.
