God forbid we use a safe natural substance to take away pain and stress. Once big pharma gets into the THC market - things will change.

Just because H&S Code section 11362.758 says that "nothing shall require" does not mean that the section must be read to prohibit a court from ordering a carrier to pay for medical marijuana.

The issues the Board seems focused on, as usual, are just dumb. Look, the Board issues extra-legal decisions all the time, if they just don't want carriers to have to pay for pot, just write that and be done. Otherwise do what you're supposed to do and do what the rules require you to do.
