Students With Medical Marijuana Cards: Is Banning them from Campus OK?

    Some college campuses have considered complete bans on smoking. This would put students with medical marijuana cards at a disadvantage. They would have to leave campus whenever they were in pain. Yet, they are already banned from smoking on most high school campuses. Should we just tell them to tough it out?

      No. Marijuana should be legal - period. For some people, I think it should be required! lol

    There are also cookies, brownies and marinol tablets. No smoking necessary.

      I agree, this is not a big issue. Smoking gets the THC into your system faster, but you'll get the same overall effect from a nice pot brownie.  And it's unlikely that campus police will stop to interrogate people eating "baked" goods.

      Agreed. There are other ways to take THC without the use of an open flame, I'm assuming that is the reason that the colleges are banning anyways. Indoor smoking could be a definite fire hazard, so it's completely reasonable to prohibit it if necessary to protect students. It doesn't have to infringe on someone's right to medicine.

    Georgia just passed an emergency bill to prohibit "artificial marijuana' because it causes terrible effects and even death to its users.  But right after the main chemical was banned the companies simply added another different chemical whi is even more dangerous and it can not be addressed until next year.

    This is the height of stupidity when you ban a harmless-from a medical standpoint-- substance and allow an even more dangerous product to be sold instead.  These laws are ridiculous and only maintains an expensive, useless and totally unnecessary law enforcement group to curb something which we haven't been able to vote on at all.

    How else do you take a relatively cheap substance and make it worth millions, while legal dangerous drugs are taken daily by those who are against pot?  What a joke our laws have become!

      RG, I think that's one of the best arguments for legalizing marijuana that I've seen--that the people who are against it are stoned on legal drugs!

    I think it should be legal. I don't use it personally but I have tried it like many who will say they have not but have. I think they should sell it and put a big tax on it.

      Put a reasonable tax on it.

        There's a story in the L.A. times today, Sunday, 6-17 about a guy running 6 medical marijuana clinics. The feds busted him for money laundering--a million bucks. That law needs to be changed so there is a tax and no other restrictions. I was in Holland when that happened and pot use went down. Nothing sneaky about it and the pice was cut 75%.
