You've got mail, margi, and I would have posted the message on the board, too, but I lost it. Forgot to save it...just that quick
I think a sympathetic jury would acquit if a defendant were armed with the proper documentation as a defense. And what a wonderful precedent that would create. I just don't want to be the one whose case sets such a legal precedent. A recap of the email I sent you was that most discoveries have been accidental, but are effective, nonetheless. Many laws are broken; many aren't even enforced. I only recently discovered (for myself) that shrooms were even a possible cure. I had always thought it was something to do when you're 20yrs old and bored on a Friday night. And I'm not 20 anymore. Being of a particular faith doesn't disqualify me from taking shrooms as a therapeutic means to prevent/abort a cycle. The governing power of my universe (God, if you will) put many things on this planet of ours to assist us. Why not take advantage of these gifts? Civil laws are broken all the time, and if you live in Georgia, the law forbids you to attempt to kill yourself, though it is seldom enforced. If you live in Georgia, there are certain things even a married couple is forbidden to do, so that makes my wife and I outlaws... that is, prior to my daily use of verapamil. In fact, because we can't break these laws anymore makes me want to ditch the verapamil and head for my local cow pasture. Damn the justice system (what a contradiction)- Full Life Ahead!
