Transcript of video:
I don’t use medical marijuana to get high. I don’t really drink. I don’t sort of have that “I want to get high” kind of thing.
I’m using it to make myself feel better. Just like (when) someone uses a normal medicine. And just like other people abuse normal medicines.
Its in the same category, if you’re going to abuse it; you’re not using it as a medicine anymore.
So that’s why I feel it should be in the same category as Oxycontin or anything else that someone else could abuse and make it into a drug or use normally and be a benefit on a everyday basis.
