Weed: Worse Than Death

Here's the story of Owen Beck. A 17-year-old with bone cancer, Beck had to have his leg amputated, and the chemotherapy made him so nauseated that he lost significant weight. He got a prescription for medical marijuana--which worked--and his parents got for him from a man named Charlie Lynch, who didn't even charge them for it. But the evil local sheriff, Pat Hedges, doesn't like medical marijuana, and doesn't like the fact that some under-21-year-olds have prescriptions for it. So he arrested Charlie Lynch, who now faces the possibility of a 100-year prison sentence. (Note, incidentally, that the average sentence for murder in California is 20 years).

So, you see, it's better to die than to smoke marijuana, and worse to sell it legally than to kill someone.

Hell, yeah, you can't let someone be happy without earning it.
