Re Gov. Dayton and medical marijuana:
Suggesting to civilians with mm needs that they buy it off the streets… this is astoundingly bad guidance. Following that advice would put one in peril of hoods / thugs, the police, and the prosecutors – none of whom are going to make lenient departures from their normal practices because someone’s needs is medical rather than hedonistic.
So the advice is wrong…. but Dayton’s the governor, so there is some great occupational malfeasance present in this advice as well.
And this as Dayton’s response all because as Governor he can’t sway the sway the police and prosecutors lobby at all.
And then, the Governor thinks “I didn’t say that” is going to be a conclusive, satisfactory response.
