Lawmakers prioritize banning bare boobies over medical marijuana

Over the last 4 years, North Carolina medical cannabis advocates have been working towards legislation that would allow them to use cannabis as medicine.

Most of our participants, BTW, are patients themselves or family members of patients. So, rather than just ignoring our bill, committee members killed it...

"We did it to be done with it, so people could move on for the session," said Rep. Paul "Skip" Stam, R-Wake. He said lawmakers we're being "harassed" with phone calls and emails about medical marijuana.
