FL Supreme Court's chief justice catches case of reefer madness in medical marijuana case

@MarcACaputo

Someone, get a doctor.

The chief justice of the Florida Supreme Court caught a case of reefer madness.

The malady revealed itself in Justice Ricky Polston’s Monday dissent to the court’s 4-3 decision to allow voters to decide a proposed medical-marijuana constitutional amendment in November.

As if hallucinating, Polston warned about the risk of pot-smoking toddlers.

“A physician, in his misguided ‘professional opinion,’ could believe that the benefits of marijuana for a teething toddler would likely outweigh the risks and, therefore, recommend that the toddler use marijuana three times a day for six months or until the teething subsided,” the justice wrote.

You know what’s next: the Grateful Dead and black lights at day care.
