Medical marijuana gaining support in N.C.


Posted: 6:22 p.m. today

Raleigh, N.C. — State lawmakers could vote on a bill legalizing marijuana for medical purposes this spring.

Rep. Nick Mackey, D-Mecklenburg, sponsored the bill and held a Thursday night rally at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte to support medical marijuana.

Lawmaker sponsors rally for medical marijuana
House Bill 1380 passed an initial vote last year and is now in a health committee.

Joe Cullen said he suffers from a debilitating, muscular disease that has left him in a wheelchair and in constant pain. He's on painkillers, but he said smoking marijuana is the only thing that truly works to relieve his pain.

"It has done a lot of wonders. It relaxes my muscles so I don't get cramps in my muscles and charley horses," Cullen said. "It reduces my pain pretty much instantly."

Cullen lobbied last summer for a law to legalize marijuana for medicinal purposes and said he plans to continue smoking the drug, even without such a law.

"If the taxpayers would like to see me in jail, so be it," he said.

Supporters say legalizing marijuana for health-related reasons would generate more than $60 million in state taxes in the first year alone.

Still, some people say the proposal could have serious side-effects.

"I don't think it is in the best health interest of the larger community," said Anne Doolen, executive director of the Alcohol/Drug Council of North Carolina. "Not everyone who uses it will develop an addiction, (but) there will be a percentage of the population who will. The availability makes it riskier for those (people)."

Nice to see more states working at this,  NC just doesn't seem like it would be on the ground floor of this movement..

my reasoning is that it'll likely just get lost in the clutter in tsl.  more people who would be interested in this would be checking for information such as this in the news/mmj forum.  its not my call since i dont mod either of those sections.  just a thought.

Yeah, the withdraws from cannabis can be devastating to society. :rolleyes:  I don't think SHE is in the best interest of the larger community.
