A Well-Crafted Argument

On Monday, the Iowa Board of Pharmacy rejected calls for allowing the use of marijuana for medical purposes. But only after board members thought very long and hard about the issue:

Board member DeeAnn Wedemeyer-Oleson compared the decision to her teenage years when she argued to her father she should be able to stay out later because other her friends did.

“He said, ‘Well, if all of your friends jumped off a bridge, does that mean you should jump off the bridge?’ So to me, this whole other 12, what is now 13, states allowing medical marijuana use is not at all sufficient to allow the board of pharmacy to make a decision,” she said.

Brilliant. (Sarcasm)
