Winding down the War on Drugs

 Now, sick Nevadans can pay a $150 fee and acquire a physician’s recommendation for the medicinal plant. Then — they can’t get any.

Oh, some do. They can grow their own, with an absurd limitation on the number of seedlings grown at any time. (Imagine a gardener trying to grow a crop of carrots … while being limited to seven seedlings.)

But police have continued to bust well-meaning souls who have tried to help patients acquire this medicinal plant, threatening Biblical prison terms.


A year ago, District Court Judge Donald Mosley — in his last day on the bench — condemned the absurd state of Nevada’s medical marijuana law, calling it “ridiculous.”

Judge Mosley dismissed a drug trafficking case against Nathan Hamilton and Leonard Schwingdorf, who supplied the herb to patients unable to grow it themselves.
