Medical Marijuana is Good For Pain Relief and Appetite
Dec 9, 2008
I think medical marijuana definitely has it's place in medicine. I have personally known people that have benefited from marijuana when very ill. It's especially good for patients who have a hard time with appetite, and for pain. If you think about it many of our medicines already come from plants, so I am sometimes surprised that marijuana is viewed so negatively for use as a medicine.

People already abuse marijuana illegally, so what should stop the government from unilaterally allowing the legal use of marijuana? The only crime the use of marijuana should be considered is the abuse. Alcohol was illegal for a brief time in American history (Prohibition), but now there's a legal drinking age for it, and the use of alcohol is only a crime when there's abuse involved, such as driving while intoxicated, drinking in public (to prevent indecent exposure, and other … more
