There are so many reasons to love Elizabeth Warren and now she has given us yet another reason, which is that she wants you to be free to get hiiiggggh. If you have cancer, that is. And a prescription. From a REAL doctor, not from a “Farmacy” like they have on every street corner in L.A. But still! If you have cancer and are in pain and have a prescription, you should totally be free to get hiiighhhh, says (future Senator!) Elizabeth Warren.

During a radio interview with Boston’s WTKK-FM Monday, Warren was asked about a Massachusetts ballot initiative that will legalize medical marijuana if it passes in November, and talked about what it was like to watch her father die of cancer:

You know, I held my father’s hand while he died of cancer, and it’s really painful when you do something like that up close and personal. My mother was already gone and I was very very close to my father. And it puts me in a position of saying, if there’s something a physician can prescribe that can help someone who’s suffering, I’m in favor of that. Now, I want to make sure they’ve got the right restrictions. It should be like any other prescription drug. That there’s careful control over it. But I think it’s really hard to watch somebody suffer that you love.

Seven states may legalize medical marijuana in November, and if they all pass, twenty-four states (plus Washington, D.C.) will have legalized it. So there you have it, Massachusetts residents, ANOTHER reason to fall madly in love with Liz Warren.

    If it's like any other prescription drug, they'll be advertising it on tv every five minutes, sending samples to your doctor to give out like candy and figuring out off-label uses for it to sell as much as possible.

      4. End the War on Drugs

      a. End the "war on drugs." Redirect funds presently budgeted for the "war on drugs" toward expanded research, education, counseling and treatment.

      b. Amend the Controlled Substances Act to reflect that drug use in itself is not a crime, and that persons living in the United States arrested for using drugs should not be incarcerated with those who have committed victim oriented crimes.

      c. Legalize possession of cannabis/marijuana.

      d. Strike from the record prior felony convictions for marijuana possession.

      I'm Sharkey, and I approved this message.

  • OneDollarJuana

    I burnt my lip bogarting a joint. Can I get a prescription?

    • Isyaignert

      It's called "instant karma" to teach you not to bogart.

      It's a delicious cycle.

    I'm an M.D. (Marginally Degenerate) and I could write prescriptions for all of you.

          They're nutz. It's going to cost them big time tourist dollars. It's still a cool city 'n' all, but it won't be the same without the coffee shops. Damn it! I was planning to go there next fall. My favorite shop there is Amnesia - .

    As a libtard resident of WA, OR, or CO, I lurve me some Elizabeth Warren, but think she's a little behind the curve on this issue.

  • actor212

    OK, that sinks it.

    Elizabeth, I will break my vow of confirmed bachlerhood and marry you.

    Happy now?

  • MonkeyMotion

    Though one can already see the next Karl Rove ad:

    Elizabeth Warren wants all children to have unlimited access to all illegal drugs forever. Because she hates freedom. And thinks she's an indian, too.

    I'm Scottie 'Nice Guy' Brown, and I approve this message.

    Or something similarly dickish.

    The medical uses of marijuana are many—pain relief, nausea relief, insomnia relief, inability to appreciate Jerry Garcia relief, poor appetite for Ben & Jerry's relief, inability to orgasm more than 4-5 times a night relief, poor cognitive receptivity for network television relief. But it does not make voting Republican any healthier. So it should be strictly controlled for conditions where it has demonstrable patient benefit. Plus for religious purposes, like my religion and my followers who consider reefer a daily prayer for cookies.

  • punkneverdies

    I've been head over heels for Miss Warren for some time now.

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    Americans deserve the individual freedom for medicinal marijuana usage.

    Oh, and as someone who has lost 30% of his body weight thanks to gastroparesis (thanks to the pain meds for my fucked up back) and would benefit highly* from legal medical pot (mainly so I can weigh more than 140 lbs. and maybe find some goddamn pants in my size — 28 x 32/34), all I can type is …


    Your mileage may vary …

    (* Yeah, yeah … )

    • prommie

      Well, Barack Obama is a true liberal and you just know you can count on him to advance this issue! Just like finance regulation, too big to fail, commodities futures speculation, and offshoring jobs!

      • UnholyMoses


        I realize the guy can't control ever facet of the gov't, but it would be nice if he'd tell the DoJ to back the fuck off the dispensaries. That can't be too hard to do, can it?

        • Sharkey

          He sorta did, but they continue to go after what they deem "illegal" dispensaries.

          That original hands-off policy was codified in a Justice Department memo written in October 2009 by Deputy Attorney General David Ogden. The so-called "Ogden memo" advised federal law-enforcement officials that the "rational use of its limited investigative and prosecutorial resources" meant that medical-marijuana patients and their "caregivers" who operate in "clear and unambiguous compliance with existing state law" could be left alone.

          • Jukesgrrl

            Feel free to get as high as you want to but, no, I'm not going to vote for the Green Party. And if they fuck up this election the way Ralph Nader fucked up Bush vs Gore, they'll be black and blue as well as green.

          • Sharkey

            Fine, look, I'm just making people aware. I'm just sick of the "I'm not gonna vote because I don't like either candidate, boo hoo." We do not have to have a 2 party system – it only works if everybody agrees to it.

        • BerkeleyBear

          The issue is when the growers and vendors are basically admitting they aren't following the rules/sticking to legitimate medical uses. There was a dude here in Oregon who just got busted, in part because he admitted he was paying his employees in pot (in theory because they couldn't be paid in cash under the state's medical marijuana law). Of course, the answer to people here is to try and straight legalize it by ballot measure despite the plain conflict with Federal law – and all I can say about that is listening to a guy who sounds stoned try to win a public debate about legalization is some good theater.

  • prommie

    Wait, whoa, hold the fuck on, is it legal in DC? Wait just a fucking second here, DC? Just 3 hours away? Thats shorter than Sherman's march to the sea (Atlanta to Savannah, roughly). Where's the "Prescription Bus?" Am I gonna have to be the one makes my first million creating the "Prescription Bus" which will pick up ailing college students from all over the East Coast and take them to DC for a visit with the Doctor to obtain their life-saving prescription?

    • ph7

      It's still cheaper and easier to get it from Phil, five minutes away.

    • Sharkey

      It's very restrictive. Lemme see here… You must have either HIV/AIDS, cancer, glaucoma, or multiple sclerosis (nothing else, headaches or depression don't count) and you have to certified by a doctor.

    if there’s something a physician can prescribe that can help someone who’s suffering, I’m in favor of that.
    I double-dare Scott Brown to argue with that statement.

    • Jukesgrrl

      He won't argue, he'll just make a smart-aleck remark about smoking a peace pipe.

    Well, pot will get you through times with no money better than money will get you through times with no pot.

    And don't forget, Colorado will vote for full-on legalized marijuana for recreational use with Amendment 64 this year. Medical marijuana is already legal in the state.

  • 102415

    Well, I used to have cancer and it might come back so can I get a prescription just in case? I think we should all stay prepared.

    Reaction in the academic community has been swift, with competing offers to Professor Warren coming in from UC Santa Cruz, Reed College, and Humboldt State. Reached in his office, the Chancellor at Santa Cruz commented, "Elizabeth Warren is an outstanding academic who would bring a wealth of talent to our university and, like, wow, do you see that hawk sitting in that redwood over there, just, like, staring? It's like you can see through its eye to its animal soul."

  • DahBoner

    That picture makes her look like one of those people who do body mods to look more like a cat.

    Which makes me think of Pussy.

  • Lionel[redacted]Esq

    There are so many reasons to love Elizabeth Warren and now she has given us yet another reason, which is that she wants you to be free to get hiiiggggh.

    Way ahead of you Liz, way ahead of you…, wait, what was I saying….

  • Isyaignert

    Also, too, Washington, Oregon and Colorado have LEGALIZATION measures on the ballot. Polling is positive in WA and CO, not so much in OR.

    Vote early, vote often.
