Colorado’s newest medical marijuana patient causes some outrage

ImageThe debate over medical marijuana is no longer hard-hitting news, especially for those of us in Colorado. But, as with everything else, some new development arises, thrusting it back into the spotlight. The latest fiasco centers on Colorado’s newest patient: 3-year-old Landon Riddle.

The first image that came to mind when I read about a 3-year-old medical marijuana patient was that of a toddler holding a joint; that would certainly be cause for some distress. However, the actual facts make for a valid debate.

It’s worth reading the whole story on CNN (3-year-old is focus of medical marijuana battle). But, I am curious to know people’s opinions on this matter. Do you think subjecting a 3-year-old to marijuana is justified?
