This makes me want to puke.
I just lost two family members to cancer. We had thought they was too far gone to communicate with us but it was the meds they were taking that was turning them in to zombies. They both started smoking weed and stopped taking the pain pills and all the other crap and was actually able to talk to us and be coherent.
I smoke and whether it is legal or not will continue to. To not have a medical marijuana law, not only in this state but all states, is utter non-sense! If it never passes to be legal for everyone I would be ok with it as long as they had a medical marijuana law in place. It's such a sad thing when people are so closed minded about it.
I'm sure one of the worries is abuse of the law by people that don't need it, but let's look past that and help the people that do. If you are NOT voting, you are hurting the chances of a law ever being passed!!! WE vote the people in that votes on these laws!! Sure ALMOST every politician is either corrupt or just worthless, but there are good ones out there! Get active about it! (I know that is a funny thing to say on a weed forum LOL)
Sorry for the rant, I'm just soooo full of anger about this subject.

Yes it is a sad time in Illinois. I listened to the whole debate on the audio/video feed on the il.gov website. I will give it to rep. Lou Lang for giving it his all, he had some good responses to questions from other house members ect.. There was really two outstanding arguments against this bill.
1. The house members that a just flat out saying no to the bill. There is no changing there minds.
2. A handful of house members only concern where just a few sections of the bill that where kind of vague of the wording.
I hope Rep. Lang will add a few amendments to the bill to appease these few votes that we need. But again it doesn't look to good..

We all need to take action on this, before it is too late... We were only 4 votes short, and we can still bring it back in January to get those 4 votes. I know my representative Representative Rich Brauer voted against the bill. If you live in the 100th district please contact Mr. Brauer and tell him how disappointed you are that he thinks people in need of medicine should be treated like criminals.

Dan Beiser, John Bradley, Fred Crespo, Anthony DeLuca, Keith Farnham, Jack Franks, Jehan Gordon, Jay Hoffman, Tom Holbrook, Charles Jefferson, Joe Lyons, Frank Mautino, Emily McAsey, Kevin McCarthy, Brandon Phelps, Dan Reitz, Carol Sente and Mark Zalewski. These are DEMOCRATS that voted NO! Going against others in their party... these votes are ones we can win back. Suzie Bassi, Bill Black, Beth Coulson, Bob Pritchard and Skip Saviano, are REPUBLICANS that ignored the lies and vested interests and voted YES! If these are your representatives, contact them and tell them how you appreciate their vote and show your support for them so as they may repeat their vote when the bill is reintroduced. Though Bassi, Black and Coulson are not returning in January, you should let them know they did the right thing, they may be able to help persuade their fellow party members to vote yes in their absence.

Living in IL is hard for sure..seems like we are the perverbial donkey being lead around by a carrot..its a shame our politicians are so corrupt, thats probably why it failed..everyone would come-up from its legalization. o well..doesnt affect my personal grow or consuption, never will. ill just keep hoping..but i dare say, well see change soon.
