As medical marijuana proves its value in cases of autism with children, the state of Michigan has released what they hoped would be disturbing news. As it turns out, of the almost 140,000 medical marijuana patients in the state of Michigan, it appears that approx. 40 are children.

The sick and infirmed around the United States are tired of being told there is no medical value in marijuana, while at the same time witnessing the feds greasing the wheels for big pharma to come in a take over the MMJ world.
So while the seedy online world is smoking hot over the discussion of Pres. Obama’s less than discretionary use of marijuana as a young thug.
