there are many people with mental illnesses like depression, dissociation and bi-polar depression who use a prescription drug that actually helps to treat their symptoms. That prescription drug is, like many other drugs, a drug that some people abuse. Please address the de-criminalization of medical marijuana. Perhaps Michael Phelps is helped by smoking the stuff. Alot of people who drink too much, such as it appears he does, are trying to treat symptoms that medical marijuana is much better at relieving, such as depression. The end of persecuting those who seek a non pharmaceutical treatment of their mental disorders would be such a great step out of an old cruel and profit driven paradigm!!!
