Lack of Access to Medical Pot Is the Poor's Greatest Problem Ever!

Silly straw-liberals.

Because dumb people* also enjoy access to the information super-highway, I get comments like this one in response to my piece on today's front page:

Goddamn if you think the biggest problem with the working poor in California is a lack of access to marijuana, you are seriously stoned out of your mind.

To which I can only respond by happily announcing that nobody's even suggested it makes the top ten.

But having cleared up that messy controversy, I do want to flesh out the argument a bit.
