"You're going to have a bunch more people running around like zombies, not paying attention and not able to hold a job," said Congressman Doug Lamalfa. "This isn't about medicine anymore. This is about recreation."
"To me, it needs to get back to a real prescription of a real drug, in pill form, done by a real doctor," said Lamalfa. "Anything beyond that is game playing."
