[ExI] medical marijuana

This is what I was thinking too. You're not feeling well and have terminal 
cancer -- and don't want to be doped up on morphine derivatives. So you smoke 
pot. Big deal if this might have long-term health consequences. It's your life; 
you're in pain; and you're likely not going to live long enough to get, say, 
lung cancer.

Why should anyone else have a say in this anyhow? Again, the solution is quite 
simple: eliminate states and turn over the statists to me for medical 
experimenta -- er, re-education.

"getting high" is what causes the relief of symptoms in most cases...

What do you hear, say, concerning the percentage of certified marijuana patients 
who actually use marijuana for medical treatments rather than to get high?
>I've been told it is 2 percent.

"A rational anarchist believes that concepts such as ‘state’ and‘society’ and 
‘government’ have no existence save as physically exemplified in the acts of 
self-responsible individuals. He believes that it is impossible to shift blame, 
share blame, distribute blame... as blame, guilt, responsibility are matters 
taking place inside human beings singly and nowhere else. But being rational, he 
knows that not all individuals hold his evaluations, so he tries to live 
perfectly in an imperfect world... aware that his effort will be less than 
perfect yet undismayed by self-knowledge of self-failure."
