"So if I asked you about art you’d probably give me the skinny on every art book ever written. Michelangelo? You know a lot about him. Life’s work, political aspirations, him and the pope, sexual orientation, the whole works, right? But I bet you can’t tell me what it smells like in the Sistine Chapel. You’ve never actually stood there and looked up at that beautiful ceiling. Seen that.
If I asked you about women you’d probably give me a syllabus of your personal favorites. You may have even been laid a few times. But you can’t tell me what it feels like to wake up next to a woman and feel truly happy.
You’re a tough kid. I ask you about war, and you’d probably, uh, throw Shakespeare at me, right? “Once more into the breach, dear friends.” But you’ve never been near one. You’ve never held your best friend’s head in your lap and watched him gasp his last breath, looking to you for help.
And if I asked you about love you probably quote me a sonnet. But you’ve never looked at a woman and been totally vulnerable. Known someone could level you with her eyes. Feeling like! God put an angel on earth just for you…who could rescue you from the depths of hell. And you wouldn’t know what it’s like to be her angel and to have that love for her to be there forever. Through anything. Through cancer. You wouldn’t know about sleeping sitting’ up in a hospital room for two months holding her hand because the doctors could see in your eyes that the term visiting hours don’t apply to you.
You don’t know about real loss, because that only occurs when you love something more than you love yourself. I doubt you’ve ever dared to love anybody that much.
I look at you; I don’t see an intelligent, confident man; I see a cocky, scared shitless kid.
But you’re a genius, Will. No one denies that. No one could possibly understand the depths of you. But you presume to know everything about me because you saw a painting of mine and you ripped my fuckin’ life apart.
You’re an orphan right? Do you think I’d know the first thing about how hard ! your life has been, how you feel, who you are because I read Oliver Twist? Does that encapsulate you? Personally, I don’t give a shit about all that, because you know what? I can’t learn anything from you I can’t read in some fuckin’ book.
Unless you wanna talk about you, who you are. And I’m fascinated. I’m in. But you don’t wanna do that, do you, sport? You’re terrified of what you might say. Your move, chief."

Three senators are making history this afternoon by introducing a bill that would effectively end the federal ban on medical marijuana. Sens. Cory Booker (D-NJ), Rand Paul (R-KY), and Kristen Gillbrand (D-NY) will stand in front of the Senate today and introduce the bill that would allow patients, doctors, and businesses in the 23 states in which medical marijuana is legal to regulate their product without breaking federal law.
Michael Collins, policy manager for the Drug Policy Alliance, said, “Almost half the states have legalized marijuana for medical use; it’s long past time to end the federal ban. This bipartisan legislation allows states to set their own medical marijuana policies and ends the criminalization of patients, their families, and the caregivers and dispensary owners and employees who provide them their medicine.”
The Washington Post reports, “[The bill] would reclassify the drug in the eyes of the Drug Enforcement Administration, allow for limited inter-state transport of the plant…and make it easier for doctors to recommend the drug to veterans and easier for banks to provide services to the industry.”
What this means is the dispensaries would now be able to have access to safe and secure banking without the threat of their assets being seized by the federal government.
Tom Angell, chairman of Marijuana Majority, a cannabis advocacy group said, “It would effectively end the federal war on medical marijuana.”
The bill’s five key provisions are as follows:
- Marijuana would be downgraded to a Schedule 2 drug, joining OxyContin, Adderall, and Ritalin.
- Restrictions on inter-state transport to facilitate patient’s access to cannabis would ease.
- Banks would be able to provide services to the marijuana industry as they do with any other industry.
- Access for cannabis research would be broadened.
- Doctors working for the Department of Veterans Affairs would be able to recommend cannabis as a treatment in states where it is medically legal.
The bill is officially titled The Compassionate Access, Research, Expansion, and Respect States (CARERS) act. The proposal will be unveiled at a press conference at 12:30 EST. We will continue to keep you updated on the progress on this bill.
