An interesting story has emerged from Illinois USA, public officials have proposed a plan to allow the legal growing of marijuana to treat 41 different medical conditions including AIDS and cancer.
The proposal would have local residents giving up their Second Amendment rights in order to obtain the medical marijuana.
Weed smokers are breaking the law and law breakers in whatever form they come in are seen to be the uncontrollable and unpredictable section of society.
Governments do not like the fact they cannot control or predict what certain people are going to do, they could get in the way of any plans they may have and, well, if they own guns and are armed, that can be a frightening situation.
A report in the Chicago Tribune states:
Sufferers who want to qualify for medical marijuana in the Illinois area would need to be finger printed for a background check and pay an annual fee of $150 and give up their right to own a gun.

We imagine that there will suddenly be an increase in the number of people claiming to be suffering from conditions like regional complex pain syndrome. Is this an insidious attempt to ‘dope up and disarm’ the American population?
Americans see the ‘right to bare arms’ as one of the most important parts to their constitution and so it has been seen that the move to allow people to smoke weed in exchange for guns is nothing more than a black hat back door way of robbing the people of a way to defend themselves.
Still if the United States Government did decide to roll out the troops onto the streets of American and turn the nation into a dictatorship, at least the people in Illinois would be too stoned to care.
If you are going to be oppressed you might as well be oppressed with a smile on your face.
Personally, I cannot see that happening, but what do you think? Is it a good idea to swap guns for weed?
Any thoughts on this Cypress Hill?
