Ok you guys aren't going to change Zeb's mind (trust me).
He just isn't for legalization, it's a culture change that will have to take place in this country. Unfortunately it is still thought of as a gateway drug (and with good reason is some cases). But one thing that doesn't help the cause is that ANYBODY can go into a doc here in Colorado say they have back pain or they get head aches and BAM they get a card.
One good thing I have seen is some are working on a plant strain with the pain suppression characteristics but with the high removed (maybe this is something Zeb would be for?).
