Yup, I mean there is already medical Heroin,medical cocaine and medical Meth that are used throughout the medical community. It all went through the FDA and the right channels. I'm sure if Marijuana was a very valuable medical supplement they would have already had it incorporated into medicine widespread. I mean really, anything you smoke is bad for you regardless. Its not much different from inhaling smoke from a burning wood pile.

Lets face it, this isn't about medical marijuana, it is simply a front for people to get high legally. And they are using poor diseased children to push their agenda. I think if they really want to make it medically and help people that could possibly benefit from it, it should be extracted and concentrated in the form of a liquid or pill and should go through standard FDA procedures just like every other Medical prescription drug.

I still stand undefeated in the challenge. Hydraulic fracturing has never caused pollution."
It has but not to the extreme scale that these folks make it out to be, there have been leaking machines, refueling incidents and hydraulic hoses breaking on rigs, however proper preparation and set regulations for dealing with these problems as well as methods for cleaning and redeeming have proven this incidents to be next to negligible as far as environmental pollution goes. Land fills cause more pollution, Liter and surface methane related pollution than the oil/gas industry. You should start banning land fills.

They flare at the landfill in poland all the time (for the dump not for the fracking) the waste management landfill has been flaring for the past 15 years. ( again the landfill is not the gas company) they do this to prevent build up of methanes from decomposed garbage that can cause potential disasters. The lights you see are probably just the well pad working lights. I can see them from my house right on the "Stateline".

Tired: I apparently took your first comment the wrong way.
The world will always need ditch diggers, i'm sure you heard this and i'd hate to say it but its true.
also- Employees will only work hard enough not to get fired, and Employers will only pay and employee enough so they won't quit
not necessarily true, but is relevent
Its not always how much you make but how you spend your money that determines your quality of life.
People are running around in $150 shoes, with a $200 cable bill every month and spending $60 a week on carton of cigerettes. But bitch and complain when they can't pay the rent.
Now this isn't true for everyone i know, but as far as youngstown city goes i'd say a lot people fall into this "type"
i still don't think that people should get $15 to flip burgers.

I understand your point, but People need to realize that nobody owes you Anything. Just because you go to college doesn't mean people owe you a job. If people aren't willing to pay you what your worth, you may just not be worth it.

Tea Party? I was almost positive Youngstown is as Blue and Liberal as has been for the past 50 years. Look where that got you.
Lots of good jobs in the area, people just don't want to work , or quit smoking dope. Oh Who would want to make $27 working for an evil Fracking company.
