Church okay with medical pot?

Wasn't the Church against all things "Pot"?

This is an interesting turn of events. They've been fighting the prop. Now it looks like they worked out a way to let the prop pass, then they will use their cronies on the salty hill to modify it to a satisfaction. I guarantee this is about control and tax revenue for the state. They will mod the prop to the point it will be very very limited in what is available and will likely give big pharma the ability to eventually control the supply.

No, they want Prop. 2 to fail, and then they want to control what happens with the "legislator's compromise," since LDS-Inc. owns most of those legislators.

They had the chance to do this during the last session, and they shot it down. Now that with what seems to look like public backlash with their stance on Prop.2, they're back-tracking.

I can't help but think what Wfluff said was accurate. This does seem like a diversionary tactic to prevent Proposition #2 from being passed in Utah.
Good faith does not require evidence, but it also does not turn a blind eye to that evidence. Otherwise, it becomes misplaced faith.
