Why move to Canada? Cannabis is available all across the US. Plus, the taxes collected from the sale of MJ, provide a lot of money for Government to use.

Medical marijuana does help some things. So does Tylenol. Like Tylenol it doesn't help everything. I know someone online who spent a couple of weeks in Oregon to try marijuana for his cancer pain after being denied opiates due to currrent restrictions after his previous doctor retired. His opinion was the marijuana made the pain "fuzzy" but did not treat it as well as the oxy did. He also thought he needed to do more research to figure out the right MJ products to use, doses, etc. A big consideration is that opiates (when available) are covered by health insurance, but MJ is not. Even where medical marijuana is legal, it is not covered by any health insurance or prescription plans. Many of the states that allow medical marijuana, do not allow a person to grow their own. In NJ where I live, medical marijuana is legal, and recreational marijuana is about to be legal, but growing a single pot plant is a felony with a 3 year minimum mandatory prison sentence.

if people like it and say it helps - that's the same thing. Medicine is not such an exact science that it can tell who is feeling better or worse at any given time.

it will be interesting to see how this proceeds. Their Governor is already promising a lot of regulation and groups in OK are reminding her this measure passed with more votes than she received, so she needs to tread lightly. Could be setting up some ugly confrontations.
