Trying to figure out what this has to do with MMJ ?? :bong2:

 

Legal Professionals: Area for legal ideas or suggestions. Reading Opinions and the like I find it beneficial to know more Latin. Figured some others might also enjoy.

 

 

Medicalus Marijuanus ??  (I had two years of Latin...... and that's all I got.  LOL)

 

You seem to know as much as you need already. :gym:
