QOTD: Is push to legalize medical marijuana REALLY about medical marijuana?

Tax revenues of recreational pot have not even nearly met expectations, even as recreational sales have stridently overtaken medical sales from less than half by comparison in just six months.

In addition, black market pot is still a viable option for many.  Is there anyone still talking about how legalized pot “helps the children?”
