  • up to a doctor to decide...not the law
  • no. legalize it and tax the crap out of it, yes.
  • Yes, it has a large history of medical use. http://www.medicalmarijuanaprocon.org/pop/history.htm Either way prohibition doesn't work. http://www.answerbag.com/a_view/966111 Something like 70% of Americans support medical marijuana.
  • legalize it for godsake already! alcohol is many times worse...
  • Yes...I feel very sick!
  • Yes, please! I'll take some recreational stuff, too, if you have it. =)
  • Okay here is the confession: I am currently on chemo (no pity parties please). And I smoke to counteract the effects. My doctor said if it were legal, he would prescribe it to me. But I have to get it other ways. www.norml.org
  • yes please fill the pill bottle full of that good green stuff
  • Yes, I think it should be made available to patients.
  • I'll have some...thanks. :))
  • Yes please. Where do I sign up. I have a chronic problem.
  • marijuana are long time used for medical purpose, it was just forbidden for abusing it..
  • Yes, I think it should be made available to people who need it.
  • I say no, only because it is like most other herbal crap that has no proven medical qualities, but it isn't just tea leaves, its a more serious drug that no matter what anyone says is a gateway drug. People don't generally jump from aspirin to heroine, but most heavier drug users did use weed first. Sorry, I know I'll catch hell for saying this from the potheads out there, but until they can prove it does anything medically besides some pain relief, I say no.
  • It seems pretty easy here, if I told you I had something that helps people with cancer and other diseases would you think it would be illegal???? Pot first was made illegal off of bull propaganda, like saying it made you go crazy and kill people!! Yeah I have done more stupid crap when I was drunk, when I smoke I laugh go figure
  • Yes. And to anyone who says no, watch someone suffering on Chemo first, then try to say no again.
  • Yes. I think it is cruel and inhuman to keep a medicine from people because the politicians say that it is bad.
  • Why not? If it works we should use it. Sure its not for everyone but if you dont like it, dont use it!
  • Absolutely I think ALMOST everything goes for medical reasons... almost! :)
  • I am not a doctor so I have no opinion.
  • Yes. The father of one of my friends had a very serious condition that required marijuana for medical reasons, however doctors were unable to prescribe him the drug due to its legal status. This FORCED his wife (my friends mum) to go to the streets and look for drug dealers in order to medicate his deteriorating condition. She should never have been forced into that position.
  • Yes, you can't die from it's use... so why not use it if it helps?
  • It has been proven effective in some cases therefore I would say yes.
  • PLEASE!! JUST WATCH THIS VIDEO! http://www.reason.tv/video/show/57.html My vote? OF COURSE YES!!!!!
  • Yes, absolutely. It must be regulated properly though.
  • Yes, please!
  • Thats would be a Yes from me
  • Yes my name is kathy and I work for a drug testing company. I have found alot of medical condtions that are helped with marijuana. Cancer, motion sickness, anemia, insomnia, AIDS, Hep C. Any aggressive treatments can benfit from Marijuana.
  • I would agree with medical marijuana, there are alot more threatening perscriptions out there that help you out alot less.
  • Yes, Please;)
  • It is PROVEN to help with nausea and lack of appetite from chemotherapy, glaucoma, and chronic pain. Legalise it already! The government classifies it as Class A, which includes heroin and cocaine, meaning that it has no medical use. At the very least, it should be downgraded along with its penalties.
  • LEGALIZE IT! But keep it out of the hands of the big corporations. Really I had a vestibular disorder and medicinal cannabis really helped.
  • Yes. It relieves nausea in many chemo patients - I think it's cruel that its use is illegal most places.
  • No. I think that as long as alcohol and tobacco are legal then marijuana should also be.Not just for medical reasons. It would do much to relieve the pressure on the prision system. It seems to me to be the most workable solution.
  • Yes to that and yes to it's legalization too.
  • Medical marijuana has been known to suck big time for it has little THC in it.One might as well buy off the local dealer and get good quality.
  • MrSublime is wrong in his claim that medical grade canabis contains less THC than home grown..... Medical Marijuana is grown to help patients with glaucoma, aids, arthritis, the list is endless... why would they give it to patients if it wasn't gonna help them.
  • Well to that cobra dude, I have to say, shut the hell up. You don't know shit. The fact that people have done heavier drugs then marijuana is because they have and come down to marijuana. Not smokin on a pipe then injecting themselves with heroin. And by the way, it has been proven that marijuana helps with many different diseases, many have already been listed. And the truth is, that it's one of the best medicinal drugs out there. It doesn't fuck with your brain chemistry like a bunch of those synthetic pain pills and depression drugs do. And as you say there are other "non-medicinal" drugs out there, Kava Kava, a legal drug, is extremely good in treating luchemea (spelling?) patients. Some docters are trying to extract the element in it that kills of fast growing cells so they don't have to use Chemo. Radiation bad. Killing cancer good. The only downside to the effects of Kava Kava is that it's almost as bad for your liver as Alcohol is.
  • Of course it should be legalized. And the govenment should stop telling us what do use and what not use. Think of the savings if there were no enforcement costs. Billions are wasted on the Drug War.
  • Yes! If all drugs were legalized the terrorists would have a source of income taken away from them They are the biggest exporters in the opium trade (heroin)and in the cocaine trade (crack). Legalize everything. The price drops to almost nothing, the terrorists lose their biggest source of income.
  • Yes,i think like many people do that marijuana could be very benificial.
  • Yes. And legalize everything else too. Let's get rid of the 15 Billion dollar war on drugs; and while we're at it we'll take 90% of the funds that terrorists raise by exporting cocaine from Columbia and opium (heroin) from Afghanistan. Have you ever thought out the entire costs of that war?
  • YES!! They prescribe artificial chemicals that you can over-dose on that have all of these nasty side effects. Mary is safe, natural, and extremely effective.
  • Most prescription medicines have at least a half dozen harmful side effects. Many are potentially fatal if taken in the wrong doses. Many cause chemical dependency and hormonal imbalances. Add to that the amount of people who've been prescribed the wrong medicine and mishaps at the pharmacy and what you've got is a whole bunch of unnecessary BS. Most prescription drugs are formulated to "treat" one specific ailment alone. Marijuana can actively treat many ailments and alleviate pain with non-fatal, temporary side effects: Cannabis does not kill brain cells nor does it make them go 'dormant'. Using cannabis can cause temporary impairments in short-term memory and what's called 'executive brain functions', the ability to learn new information or engage in complex manipulation of learned material. These effects disappear as the drug effects wear off. Long term, chronic cannabis users themselves complain of problems with memory, concentration, loss of motivation, paranoia, depression, dependence and lethargy. However there is no convincing evidence that heavy long-term marijuana use permanently impairs memory or other cognitive functions. source: House of Lords Select Committee on Science and Technology.

  • It should be legal for medical purposes only. Not to any random person though, too many people abuse it.
  • Yes. My friend boils the leaves and drink the concoction to relieve her dysmenorrhea.
  • Yes!!!! It helps me so much with my nausea and nothing else does.
  • Yes but only for the illnesses/cases where conventional medicines did nothing to help the person. Marijuana also has side effects and is a medicinal substance.
  • Considering that marijuana has barely any side effects, and none that compare to conventional medicine, marijuana all the way. And not just medicinal.
  • Medical, recreational, you name it, YES on all counts. Why should the law have dibs on what I want to put in MY lungs?????? For God's sake they are MY fricken lungs!
  • i think yes it really helps some people like thoes who have cancer and go through the treatment they dont wanna eat but marijuana helps get them hungry and it can help with other stuff too i people should give it a try it can really help
  • Medical No, Weed should be smoke by anyone any place at any time?!?! Me
  • Definitely Yes, has really helped people with cancer, neuropathy, all kinds of diseases and mainly lots of suffering has been aleviated.
  • yes because it helps with pain and anxiety i am a very gloriphobic person and it helps me go out into the world everyday
  • Medical marijuana, yes. All other drugs, no.
  • As a chronic pain patient, I would have to say yes. If it helps alleviate symptoms of an illness, the decision should be between the patient and their doctor. Everyone else needs to mind their own business.
  • make it legal
  • Most def!
  • yes!!!! i believe that if the rest of the world believes its ok, why does the united states have to be so dumb about it. its natural and less harmfull than alcohol and cigarettes so why is it illegal. God made pot man made alcohol. who do you trust?
  • yeah weed helps them feel better or anyone for that matter.
  • Yes yes yes.
  • YES! Happy 420
  • Yes, I support Prop 215.
  • I feel marijuana should be legalized for medicinal purposes. It is currently available to HIV/AIDS patients in the form of MARINOL and does inprove apppetite. Also Chronic Pain is a condition that patients may benefit from Marijuana. This is a personal decision and for some a moral decision, I feel. distantwings
  • Ohhh yes it does and to those that say no... you are pompous, ignorant, prudes with nothing but judgement to impose, incoherent, retarded and unfounded judgement. Whom have never experienced pain, or chronic pain for that matter. Having a herniated disk with nerve damage, sciatica, lumbar scoliosis, generalized anxiety disorder, acute multiple sceloris and severe depression. Such extensive nerve damage in my spine has left me impotent!....did that catch your attention? oh yes i bet!!!!. It has been a godsend, Medical marijuana has helped me get my life back. My muscles atropied from inadequate opioid RX dosages. All because of my young age at the begining of my chronic maladity. Therefore, due to the undermedication ,by physicians, because of my young age when I first saw a doctor, male in early 20's, and thanks to the DEA's afference to persecute Dr's really helping patients reach adequate levels of analgesia. I spent 4 years searching for adequate pain relief. It finally did come and thanks to that and the cocombianant use of marijuana and opiates. Ending with just cannabis as my sole medication. I got my life back, at least what ever pieces could still be repaired. Not everyone can function with a five on the pain scale due to physiological and psychological factors; both which are specific on a per patient basis. Yes, i am a health professional also....mmm did that intrugue you even more. Marijuana has been great for its extremely effective analegisic effects, antispasmodic, anxioxylic, antiemetic, sedative-hypnotic, anti-psychotic and anti-depressive effects. All thanks to the combination of CBD and THC in pot, its effective for all the listed maladities....Its medical appication is endless i just wish more in my field felt this way....saddly its all due to social stigmas. We are still stuck in a 1960's social climate haze when it comes to medicine and prescibing adequate narcotics in situations which are proper and due call for such medication use. pardon the spelling and keep up the fight to legalize marijuana and push for its medical application. anonymous health care professional
