    It's time the government got out of the racial division business. We are either all equal or we are not. Pick a side already.

    Using the NAACP's logic, the University of Maryland's football & basketball teams should be 2/3rds caucasians players.

    Monello thinks he is king of the forum, now. Just keep that in mind.
    What bad thing did you do?

    A "compassionate use fund" will be part of the legislation in order to make medical marijuana affordable for patients in Maryland. The fund will be financed based on the fees that licensees in the industry must pay, Glenn said.
    I'm all for medical (and recreational) marijuana legalization, but this is the one of the dumbest ideas I've ever heard.

    And for anyone who thinks govt. can do things better than the free market:
    Maryland is considered to have one of the slowest medical cannabis rollouts in the nation, hampered by several delays that arose during the four-year process since it was legalized.

    I don't think anyone here is under that misconception.
