Leah,medical marijuana patients aren't protected from reprisals from their employers & can be fired or denied employment just like those who enjoy marijuana on their own time.& away from their workplace. We're sick & tired of anti-marijuana zealots attacking us & infringing upon our legal rights & while our patience is wearing thin our ranks are increasing exponentially ! Anyone with a modicum of understanding of this issue knows that it's being pursued through legislation & litigation at the local,state & federal level. Progress has been stymied due to the historically partisan nature of this issue as most Republicans rightly believe that those who support marijuana reform are mostly Democrats & Independents. It's not the patients who have turned a public health matter into an unnecessary controversy,it's those obstructing state law with dispensary bans who've done so repeatedly & vindictively !

The point is that food stamp welfare already pays for "the children."

It was never the voter's intention to allow employers to discriminate against medical marijuana patients who use their doctor recommended medication when they're not working. Otherwise the self-employed or unemployed would be the only beneficiaries of the Compassionate Use Act passed by voters in 1996. State courts have ruled that patients aren't protected from employer reprisals & efforts to reconcile the issue have been stalled in the legislature due to efforts of anti-drug crusaders,law enforcement,employer groups & the Chamber of Commerce. It's nice to know who your friends are,but it's better to let everyone know who their enemies are & why ! Locally it's the Chamber of Commerce & their members who bankroll the campaigns of those who oppose "safe & legal access" in San Leandro in defiance of the majority of their neighbors. Keep this in mind when deciding if & where to spend your hard earned cash in a town run by those violating their oath of office & obstructing state law !

First of all I choose not to smoke pot so I can have a job. Since I have a commercial drivers license it is a law that I be tested. Would I like to smoke pot once in awhile ? sure, I don't drink either since I feel it is far worse a drug. As for me "whining" if being tired of my tax dollars going to people who have no intention of working and are happy to live off the system then I guess I am a whiner and I am sure a lot of others are as well. It is not a Democratic or Republican thing it is a people should contribute thing.
