Congratulations to medical marijuana user (for HIV symptoms) Tim Stevens, for winning his legal necessity defense against a marijuana possession prosecution. The Texas jury took only eleven minutes to deliberate.
Marijuana is powerfully beneficial medicine. What is more is that it is completely natural, which is why pharmaceutical companies will be opposed to it (anybody can grow this wonderful weed).
Legalize marijuana now, especially for medicinal use. Jon Katz
