    This stuff should be legalized. That way, the RNC wouldn't be wasting a ton of my tax dollars. This is legal in Canada for medical purposes and straight up legal in a few states now. Legalize it, regulate it, tax it and stop wasting my money.

      Absolutely, what or who is holding this issue in limbo? One time I used to think it was the conservative thinking Yanks, not so anymore, now is it the conservative Albertan?
