Ellis, for the first time in my experience in 600 posts on this blog, stood and answered a straight question. Kinda.
In answer to the question posed in the topic post below, Ellis said, "Marijuana may have some medicinal value in certain medical conditions."
Okay, that's progress. I followed up with, "Do you believe it is proper to jail people for attempting to alleviate their own suffering with a medicine that demonstrably alleviates it better than any other available?"
So far, he hasn't answered. Powers, what do you say?
I'll even amend the question. Do you believe it constructive to jail people for ingesting a substance? Again, anyone is free to chime in. I've asked Powers this several times over the past five years, and his response is usually to delete my question. Gets the neocon runs, I guess.
