There's another push in Frankfort to legalize medical marijuana. Lawmakers have recently been listening to testimony from both sides of the debate. Advocates say that doctors should decide whether their patient needs pot for their medical condition. The other side says that there's already a process by which to approve new drugs for medical use. The concern many have is that this is a back door attempt to legalize recreational pot. Of course, there is anecdotal evidence that medical pot in some forms benefit some people. But long term studies haven't been done, which leaves doubt. So should it be legalized? Why not let the FDA run trial tests and examine it. Then ask this: would advocates accept medical pot if it could only be prescribed in pill form? The answer would reveal the true intent of their efforts.
