Common sense trumps the morality police in one of the least likely of places. SANTA ANA, Calif., July 18 (UPI)-Conservative Orange County, Calif., will license the use of medical marijuana and issue ID cards to patients entitled to use it.
Tuesday's decision by the all-Republican county supeervisors marked a reversal from three months ago when the plan seemed doomed, The Los Angeles Times reported Wednesday.
Advocates of medical marijuana intensly lobbied Orange County supervisors, telling them licensing and IDs would eliminate wasted court costs and prosecution time spent on medical marjiuana possession cases. While the federal government continues to waste its time fighting the so-called drug war with Draconian measures, communities across the country-including heavily Republican ones-are telling the advocates of said war what they can go do with themselves. "Real conservatives," please take note.
