Apparently people are having complicated and heated discussions regarding how much marijuana a medical marijuana patient should be allowed to possess.
I find it difficult to get very interested in that debate, although I understand that it’s important for the patients.
Here’s what I do think, however.
- Law enforcement does not have a dog in this race. The patient can have a valid opinion. So can the doctor. But not the cop.
- It seems to me that the amount that a patient is allowed to have should be at least the amount that the patient needs. Since that varies for each patient, there should be no set limit.
- If you really have to set a limit, then I’d decide it based on safety and place it just under the amount that would cause a fatal overdose*. That way, you wouldn’t have to worry about anyone getting hurt.
Best wishes for Ted Kennedy and his family.
