  1. Awe. Give him a break the poor thing! The way i see it is that this man was providing a service. Everyday millions of people with so much pain go through life beating up their liver with narcotics. But there are those who count on people like this man to provide them with a more natural and safer pain relief. seeing how the marijuana is going to be legal in Maryland within a few months i think that this is absolutely ridiculous!
