Medical Marijuana User Denied Kidney Transplant

Interesting news item. The title definitely slants the story. At the end of the article they say that this man's marijuana use was not the only "factor" in the decision, that they don't give transplants to people who smoke anything, and that they also consider any history of substance abuse or addiction. They don't say that he has such a history, they just say that they consider it. If that's not slander, it is certainly suggestive. I would not be surprised if he is a pothead who is working the system. Check out the picture.
