Good on 'em!

Rhode Island Legalizes Medical Marijuana.

This makes me happy for two reasons. First, because there are demonstrated benefits to some cancer, glaucoma and AIDS patients from smoking marijuana.

Second, because it's an always-welcomed poke in Uncle Sam's eye when a state asserts its rights over the federal system. The correct answer is almost never "more government involvement".

Or to quote Ronald Reagan regarding the most frightening thing you could hear "I'm from the government and I'm here to help."

There is also some interest in marijuana for control of diabetes and asthma.

The real fun will come when some state elects a governor with cluster headaches.
