Nevada Legalizes Medical Marijuana, Needle Exchange Programs

Nevada has legalized two major drug reforms, StopTheDrugWar.org reports. A state-regulated system of up to 66 medical marijuana dispensaries will be established with at least one in each county. In addition, infused pot product manufacturers, as well as cultivation and testing facilities, are subject to regulation. Also, possession of syringes has been decriminalized by removing them from the state drug paraphernalia list. The change allows for needle exchange programs and over-the-counter sales of syringes.

I can hear all the pot heads celebrating. I do not believe on medical marijuana, it is driven by those who are hoping that all of this propaganda from either misinformed or just like pot, to be a miracle to their problem. pot causes an assortment of other problems.
