No Dope: Ft. Lauderdale Man to Smoke 115,000th Joint - News- msnbc.com (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/34041743 - broken link)

"Yep, provided by Uncle Sam," Rosenfeld told NBCMiami.com. "They grow it for me, I find that quite ironic."

Rosenfeld's pot has been provided by the government since 1982, when he became a patient in the Federal Drug Administration's Investigational New Drug Program. Grown on a farm on the campus of the University of Mississippi, the weed is delivered to a local pharmacy where Rosenfeld gets it by the bushel.

He's been getting 300 joints every 25 days for the past 27 years, and said he smokes between 10 and 12 per day.

"The first thing I do every morning is smoke two joints as I watch my business shows," Rosenfeld said. "Then another on my drive to work."

That of course would explain why he continues to do so.

He says he would be bedridden without the medical benefit from pot.

Im confused.

The pot has no effect on him, so he is allowed to drive and operate machinary.

But...

He needs the pot otherwise he would be bedridden?


Talk about playing both sides of the coin.

Not at all. You should read the article. He says it has a major medical benefit from it, but he doesn't get high from it. Like aspirin: it has medical benefit, but it won't give you a high.

Getting high and benefitting from it medically are two different thigs.
