These Four People Receive Free Joints From The U.S. Government

Irvin Rosenfeld, 52-year-old stockbroker, recently went to court for reeking of marijuana. Due to a little-known U.S. taxpayer-funded program, the court ruled that Irvin was exempt from possession laws because of his rare health condition. The 'compassionate use' program has been in effect since 1982, though only ten (two anonymous) people have ever been able to make use of it. Four are alive today and will receive joints, courtesy of the federal government, till the day they die. Soo... why isn't weed legal again?
