Sure, marijuana may be illegal in some states, but you should not look at this issue in black and white. There are actually a whole lot of gray areas that you have to consider. When you say medical marijuana, it actually does not mean that you would be cured of your illness. Rather, medicinal marijuana mitigates the affects of illnesses whose symptoms are rather uncomfortable and even very painful in some instances. Because of medicinal marijuana, some people are able to tolerate medical treatment that are just as painful as the disease itself so they would be cured of it and would be able to live a longer life. If you are against legalizing marijuana, you might want to think again about the amount of good that it does for people in pain. It helps them tolerate their illness and be free from pain even if it is just for a little while. Sure, you may not be able to feel the pain that they feel, but that does not mean that you should be absolutely against it. All you need to do is just do a quick research even with just google or any local library that carry medical journals and you will find the amount of good that this does to patients all over the country. There actually isn’t anything wrong with legalizing marijuana. It does not mean that you would have to smoke it. You do not need to impose your beliefs on other people who may be supporters of this movement.
