State to start implementation of medical marijuana

The state's Department of Consumer Protection will start implementing the medical marijuana law passed this year by the legislature on Oct. 1. And in case you considered getting in line right now, the DCP has a convenient Q &A set up to explain the truths and myths of medicine weed. 
For example:
Q. Can patients be placed on a waiting list?
A. No.
 And just in case you thought you now have carte blanche to set up a grow operation in your closet:
Q. Who will grow the marijuana?
A. Only producers licensed by the Department of Consumer Protection will be authorized under the bill to cultivate marijuana.

I really don't know where should I take my perspective in this issue but I can say that if this will go under due process and can help everyone without causing damage to anyone then it'll be okay to everybody.

Let's say one of the marijuana initiatives wins at the ballot box in November. What happens then? This is where things get complicated. No matter what a state decides, marijuana is still illegal under federal law. While Barack Obama's Justice Department said in its first year that it wouldn't go around arresting people who were complying with their state's marijuana laws, he turned out to be nearly as much of a drug warrior as any of his predecessors.
