I'm saying, very clearly, that it's not medicine in it's raw form. I'm also saying that the overwhelming bulk of people I've heard refer to it as their "medicine" are using it recreationally and hiding behind palliative use when they're expected to be accountable for their behavior. These people are a-holes, and are not doing legalization advocacy any favors.
