Finally! So many of us with chronic pain will benefit from this.

Madness. Just what we need - more druggies!

Bret Martin

I’m excited to try it once I can legally obtain it from a safe source.

Ginnie Lynn

What you are not seeing is the addictive qualities, the driving under the influence, the family deterioration, the increased cost of healthcare, law enforcement.

Fred Goslin

Shouldn’t we be recognizing it as okay by federal standards first? Doing it this way makes the state break federal law.

Aaron Covington

Awesome! Hopefully this will help the safe reopening efforts.

Daniel Adam Tobin

This is NOT to speed up reopening, it’s about control! It is another way to force you to get a vaccine that you don’t want.
