(Newser) – Smoking pot is now legal in all of New England—provided you have a doctor's permission. New Hampshire today became the last state in the region to approve, as Gov. Maggie Hassan made it official, reports the Union Leader. It joins 18 other states. Patients who qualify will be able to pick up 2 ounces at one of four state dispensaries once the system is in place. Growing it at home is still a no-no. And first up with the "Live Free or High" headline is the New York Daily News.

Here is another reason why the U.S. government may want to legalize Marijuana. When economic times get really tough -- Marijuana may be one of the few things that keeps people from suicide, rioting and increased criminal actions. Sedation stops violence.

This is great for New Hampshire, but it is time now to legalize plant Marijuana in every state and ban that synthetic lab made Marijuana. Hemp ropes, clothes, car fuel, and smoking for medicinal and entertainment. People will drink less alcohol and suffer less from alcohol related incidents when they smoke more Marijuana.

Although smoking pot may help some with the pain of their disease, these laws are only a pretense to continue legalizing drugs which will continue to move downward in age as more and more become dealers to get the money to buy their legal pot. Oh yeah, really hard getting a prescription in these states. Sorta like going to an abortionist to weight whether or not to get one.
