Was debatting putting this into the post puff & huff started, but figured since his had dead line in the title & it's a date that has already passed, it might make it so some people pass over it & miss out on reading//contributing, so I started a new thread.
"MADISON, Wis. - Gov. Jim Doyle says he supports legalizing medical marijuana in Wisconsin if a law can be written that restricts its use to people who have a doctor's prescription.
At an appearance in Wausau, Doyle says he has no problem with the use of marijuana to treat severe pain and other medical conditions, if it's prescribed by a doctor.
Doyle's comments come after a decision by the Obama administration not to prosecute users and suppliers of medical marijuana in the 14 states where it's been legalized. The decision is a clear break from the policies of the Bush administration.
The governor says restricting the use of medical marijuana makes no sense when doctors can already prescribe more dangerous drugs like morphine. "
