I have multiple sclerosis. I just don't understand how marijuana isn't legal for medical purposes! It's legal for me to be high on all of my pills I'm supposed to take on a daily basis, (man-made; hurting my body more), but it's not ok for marijuana?! It's from the ground! I haven't heard of ANYONE over dosing on pot! "Gateway drug"?! Hah! I've never done anything else! I think that Indiana, and the other states that haven't legalized this for medicinal purposes, is a joke! I'd rather be high, (helping my medical condition, than drink! Alcohol and tobacco is legalized, and does more harm! Come on people, let's get our priorities in line!
So true, David and it's always been that way. Indianapolis is too liberal, has too many blacks, latinos, gays and whatever so it scares the hell out of these good, bible toting Christians who can't see beyond their noses that God's children come in many varieties.
There was a movie years ago that said it all. Two guys on a trip stopped and got out of the car and said to his buddy something to the effect of breath that air, see those tilled fields, see the salt of the earth etc. and the other one said "Yeah, morons"!
Reminds me of "Urban Archipelago"
the state will turn down $10.9 BILLION over 3 yrs. then about $3 BILLION every year after.
You fail to mention the other outrageous part of Pence's agenda: He has declined to accept federal funds for the expansion of Medicaid. In this, too, he departs from the model offered by both Ohio and Kentucky. Pence has placed himself at the leading edge of the Republican strategy to do its damndest to deny decent healthcare to poor and middle-class Americans.
thank god for him
Pence does not give a #*$* about the people of Indiana. All he cares about is trying to make anything to do with Obama and the Democrats look bad. He will not work with anyone unless he is making himself look godlike.

Remind me again, what's that old saying about putting the inmates in charge of the asylum? I cry for the great university that was Purdue.
PS: If you want to have some fun at Mitch's expense, there's a read-in of Howard Zinn works at Purdue on November 5th.
Pretty sure citizens want a balanced budget. Regarding education. Indiana ranks #3 in high school graduates or equivalent. Anything after high school is personal choice as is obesity. Green state? We've all seen the waste of money lining I65 in windmills. Throwing money at a 'green' project isn't going to result in success. See Solyndra.
Here's my problem; Obama has been in office for five years and every year my healthcare has gone up, the last two add up to a 50% increase. My employer says it's due to market adjustments as insurance companies are getting ahead of this ACA. Insurance companies are expected to have higher payouts, meaning they have to charge more to stay profitable. This results in shifting costs onto people like me, which by definition is socialism. There is nothing in the ACA designed to actually fix the problem which is out of control billing practices in an over regulated healthcare industry.
"Surely, . . .we can hold parents responsible for things their children do . . ."
You mean to tell me that we don't already hold parents responsible for the actions of their children?? Mom and Dad should be criminally liable (if they aren't already) for the unlawful actions of their dependent children!! If they aren't responsible for the actions of their brats, then who in the heck is? And don't blame it on teachers and society and the economy! Parents are responsible for teaching their children right from wrong. NO ONE ELSE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS. JUST THE PARENTS. And if the parents don't take responsiblity for this then THEY should literally pay the price for their children's misdeeds.
Lance made millions simply by taking Erythropoietin. Pretty amazing feat.
We have come to a clear realization of the fact that true individual freedom cannot exist without economic security and independence. “Necessitous men are not free men.” People who are hungry and out of a job are the stuff of which dictatorships are made. F D R
I think it is time we make it so people who need it can smoke it god said he gave us a herb to help heal the body and weed is that herb and it is been showed to us it can help people and save life's why not pass a bill to save a life or is it cus the people in our house want people to die if we let ppl grow and sell it we can tax it like we do with tobacco think of the income Indiana could make we are knowing as the state to have the hard hitting laws in the USA for weed if we make it so people can buy and sell all other states would get on bored and do the same and soon or later people in DC will have to pass it its time the people in the house of Indiana woke up
I agree sell everything and all realestate and start over with farm land.
Coleman Young was responsible for white flight. He was
a radical leftist and declared that Detroit was going to
be a 'black city' and through various policies encouraged
Political corruption through mayors and council and unions
brought the Detroit tiger down.
Sell the art and feed the people, simple. Once on their feet
again they can start another museum...they are better off
with a car museum than an unattended 'art museum'.
City Hall is not people 'friendly' at all.
I agree tho, the hockey puck stadium is a total boondoggle designed to line the pockets of Llitch. Another crime of wasting tax payer dollars. They tried that in Gary, IN with a 'baseball stadium'.
Another public flop of tax payer dollars.
Maybe privatizing will be better than inefficient and corrupt
I have C.O.P.D. Sleep Apnea, and several other ailments all of which when I smoke marijuana the symptoms are reduced to a dull roar. Maybe If they let me and my Doctors alone and experiment with the oils and such... My point is it is none of your business why I went to the doctor. Did Ryan White have to have permission for his doctors advice ? It is none of my business why my neighbor went to their doctor's office.
I believe that the planting out doors of marijuana is very beneficial to god old mother earth. In the government's own words in their war time movie "Hemp for Victory" They say that anyplace Hemp is planted the soil is improved. all the lumber that can be made from hemp saves trees. All the paper, clothes food meds, where do you want me to stop? The list goes on and on. There are hundreds of uses Eli Lilly doesn't like Marijuana... Du Pont doesn't like marijuana. Where does it end?
When does it end?
I have personal paranoia, insomnia and manic depression, doctors and therapist have not been able to help me with any of my afflictions. Yet, I find marijuana is the only thing that helps me. I am not some hippie or some liberal, I am a young father, working towards being a home-owner, yet I get judged because I can't sleep without smoking, or because my mind gets so frazzled that I can barely function in society, unless I have smoked marijuana. The medicinal properties of cannabis, for mental and physical illnesses, are numerous and I cannot wait for this state of mine to see that. I love Indiana and I am sick of it being seen as backwards. It's all because we elected Mike Pence. Once Pence is gone maybe we can join the progression, and we won't all be seen as idiotic hicks. In reality, there are actual intelligent, open-minded people in Indiana, it's our politicians who are representing us as close-minded people.
DOMA was not "a misbegotten attempt to make marriage more valuable by making it harder to come by" - it was created for the sole purpose of discriminating against gays and lesbians by exluding us from the rights that every other citizen has.
