Another year, a little more progress in the ultimate goal of legalization of a plant that does way more good than bad.

There have been some major strides taken by the good people of the United States when It comes to making legal medical marijuana accessible to all that need or want it. Unfortunately, many opponents are also sticking to their guns with their ignorant arguments and rebuttals when it comes to this sensitive subject. They are holding on to the same ol' outdated propaganda that needs to be rolled up in a phatty and laced with some of the best medicine ever known to mankind...spark it up.

I don't know of any prescription drug that works 100% without the chance of some adverse side effects kicking your butt. The greedy pharmaceutical companies and politicians need to be exposed for what they are... wealthy people that don't care about the well being of the people but only the well being of their already overflowing pockets.

We came oh so close in taking a step in the right direction in my home state of California with Prop. 19. We are taking the steps that all states need to take until the entire USA is decriminalized. We need medical marijuana dispensaries available to all who need easy access. I don't necesarily look at the failed proposition as a fail. I see it as a stepping stone in the right direction.

Medical Marijuana is not for everyone. Xanax, Vicodin, Morphine, etc., is not for everyone. More and more people are dying from diabetes and heart disease related complications every year so the foods and lifestyles that cause these major illnesses are actually worse than the wonder plant that does the opposite for these sick patients. Marijuana has been proven time and time again to have healing properties for some of lifes most debilitating and deadly sicknesses.

Will 2012 be the year when your state takes the steps to legalization? Let us hear your thoughts below. The time is now!

Please follow my blogs as I am going to bring the heat on the powers that be in 2012.

Also, please comment and I will get back at you asap!

Dear Phil ' I am a baby boomer who has been smoking weed for the last 45 years . I can surely attest to the benefits of marijuana .

First to suppress the horrible childhood I had to survive, then for my chronic back pain since 1982(injury) . It is the only drug that helps me with the pain without the risks of dying from a prescribed drug like heart attacks and death .

Of course the FDA , FTC will never allow it because of the greedy phamaceutical giants would lose a crapload of money if people stopped buying the poison the FDA allows them to shovel down our throats .

It is awesome for nausea , glaucoma , stiff joints and a great pain suppressant .

In the U.S alone their is approx . 700,000 related deaths caused by prescribed drugs alone .

Their is a sh**load of of lawsuits going on as we speak against the makers of prescribed drugs .

They realeased the drug Vioxx , and knew b4 hand that it would kill thousands , yet were allowed to introduce it to unsuspecting people who were looking for nothing else than relief from their pain .

Whistleblowers have come forward denouncing that they had many cures for some of our illnesses yet fail to realease them to the public ....

Why do u ask , simple $$$$$$$$$$$ is what keeps these death dealers in the pink . They made billions on vioxx alone , and if i remeber correctly paid out a paltry 253 million for the countless lawsuits they had in court against them .

What a joke , 253 million is like pocket change to these pharmaceutical giants who no matter how many deaths have occured due to their poison , they still laugh all the way to the bank .

Truly a sad state of affairs ,when money is put above the lives of human beings .
