Good luck with the medical pot thing. Palm Desert's council has shown a dislike for anything that makes smoke: Cigars, Pipes, cigarettes, etc,,,Susan shows common sense and hey, I like Lanny !!

I think the candidates for Palm Desert City Council should have their Political  Party Aaffiliation next to their name so we know if they will be truthful or not.

I think this whole war on marijuana is being waged by the rich old white GOP cronies who know as much about smoking grass as they do about gender distinctions.  Have I missed a Biblical Principle against smoking pot?
