It's time to get over stereotypes:

UC Studies Show Marijuana Has Therapeutic Value, Reports to Legislature.
“We focused on illnesses where current medical treatment does not provide adequate relief or coverage of symptoms,” explained CMCR director, Igor Grant, MD, Executive Vice-Chair of the Department of Psychiatry at the UCSD School of Medicine.  “These findings provide a strong, science-based context in which policy makers and the public can begin discussing the place of cannabis in medical care.”

The editorial position in favor of reforming marijuana laws to allow for medical use seems worthy of discussion, considering the typical response of local media has been to simply voice over or add video to press handouts crowing about common pot busts. 
Rarely do you find reporters asking simple questions like "how much did this cost taxpayers?" or "could these resources have been better utilized to fight more substantial crimes?".

Nah, any self respecting stoner will tell you that Cool Ranch OR Nacho Cheese Doritos are the munchy of choice, but that's all relative, they're owned by the same people...wait, what?

Maybe having a family member or friend with cancer gets people to re-order their priorities and perceptions.

I used to have a friend who had a rare form of depression that was completely managed with weed.

Basically he would get depressed when he ran out of weed.

Helps with bulimia too because the patient eats and then forgets to throw-up.

Two more valid medical uses.

Not to mention using the stuff to eliminate our dependence on foreign oil - not reduce, as the Republicontins talk about - eliminate!
