Not much better. "I believe that medical doctors should be allowed to use their best judgment in deciding the most effective treatment for their patients" isn't exactly a ringing endorsement of cannabis freedom. (The statement itself seems rather meaningless — if a doctor wanted to prescribe faith healing for a seriously ill patient instead of treating the person with modern medicine, would she really be in favor of allowing that? I highly doubt it, even though her statement taken at face value means that she would.)
Senator Boxer says that if and when legislation prohibiting enforcement of federal anti-marijuana "laws" is introduced in the Senate, she will "keep (our) views in mind". No promise to introduce the legislation in the Senate herself, not even a promise to vote for it. Gee, thanks Barbara.

Please join Americans for Safe Access (ASA) and the Medicine & Music Project
tomorrow for the Cypress Hill Smoke Out for Safe Access [
http://smokeoutfestival.com/smokeoutforsafeaccess ], a peaceful march and
rally for medical cannabis patients' rights in downtown Los Angeles.
Patients and advocates will gather on the west side of City Hall at 4:00 PM,
then march to the nearby federal building. Our goal is to let City Council
Members know we oppose the proposed ban on patients' associations, and to
tell the federal government to stop interfering in California's medical
cannabis program. Come be a part of it!
*What:* Rally and March – Cypress Hill's Smoke Out for Safe Access
*When:* 4:00 PM * Thursday, March 1
*Where: * Meet on the west side of City Hall, 200 N. Spring Street, Los
Angeles, CA 90012
Can you help out? ASA needs 6-8 volunteers to serve as crossing guards to
make sure everyone stays safe. Please email me at s..[email protected] if
you are available!
See you downtown,
P.S. – Take action today [

I totally agree, and the cost of government ID cards doesn't even stop at the cash you have to fork over to get one. There is a hidden cost in civil liberties of allowing laws that require us to obtain government-issued cannabis cards, as well as the possibility that any local, state, or federal government registry that is created may later be used by authorities to target people for persecution.
To address a point raised by Bud, I think our *friends* in law enforcement already know that cannabis isn't as dangerous as government advertises it to be. In fact I think the rest of law enforcement pretty much knows it too, and that it is really only their desire to keep the money flowing to their agencies and themselves, along with their love of power and the authoritarian desire to control our lives, that keeps most of them from embracing legalization.
As for mainstream society, I don't see how our buying into the argument that cannabis must be regulated by government is supposed to convince anyone that it's *less* dangerous. Isn't it the *unsafe* things that are supposedly most in need of being regulated?
