The Medical Miracle That You'll Get Arrested For Using

The Medical Miracle That You'll Get Arrested for Using By Dr. Mercola http://www.foodconsumer.org/newsite/Non-food/Drug/marijuana_1126110736.html Marijuana was a popular botanical medicine in the 19th and 20th centuries, common in U.S. pharmacies of the time.

Nowhere in section 8 of the affirmative defenses does that statute specifically state, su
