Scott Morgan brings us: "It's Time for the Drug Czar to Resign," "Sen. Coburn Thinks Police Should Shoot Drug Suspects in the Back," "Clinton Promises to End Federal Raids on Medical Marijuana Dispensaries," "Showtime's "In Pot We Trust"is a Must-see," "The Difference Between Pot Growers and Terrorists," "Rudy Giuliani's Position on OxyContin and Pain Management Is Correct ," "David Murray Lies About Steve Kubby's Position on Medical Marijuana" and "Drug Czar Says Pot Growers are 'Terrorists.'"

Phil Smith opines, "When Oversight Means Oversight: Waxman Goes After Walters for Politicizing His Office," and points out how "Rudy Hates Pot Smokers (Especially Black and Brown Ones) More Than He Likes Effective Policing."

David Borden comments that "You know the drug war's been lost when they're growing marijuana right outside the DEA's office..." and discusses "Hurwitz Receives Lesser Sentence Second Time Around, Could Be Free in 17 Months.

Does anyone know the regulatory nature of Marinol in Mexico i.e., if one has a US prescription, can one go down and purchase Marinol in Mexico? I am guessing that transport of the medication across US boarders is going into murkier waters, but if it consumed in Mexico, I wonder if it can be dispensed?...
Any help or advice would is greatly needed and appreciated.
