    Oh snap, another topic where certain ignorant/arrogant people could potentially make me angry.

    All for it, I'll leave it at that. Until I get pissed off enough to write a ****ing essay, which will inevitably happen.

    I think it's fine to use for medical purposes. I could care less if people smoked it for recreation. I just wish that people could control theirselves when it comes to getting high. People would definitely over use it.

    I see no problem with it.

    the use of/legalization of Marijuana in general is a pretty interesting debate to take part in.

    I don't see any problem with cannabis, whether for medical or recreation reasons. Heck, alcohol is worse for you and that's perfectly legal.

    Hahaha, that's most certainly me. ;)

    Actually, for medical purposes it can actually help a lot more, my mum can be prescribed it, but she doesn't want it around the house because children walk through here, and there's the medical health issues she's worried about, because evidence is quite dodgy when it comes to marijuana. Alcohol is worse for you, but it can do some damage if it's taken out of control.

    There is no good reason why it shouldn't be used medicinally.

    Good anti-nausea medicine - I've gotten prescription ones that don't do anything, weed seems to be the only one that works (it cures hangovers!)

    Good sleep medicine - It's better for you then the barbiturates they give people now

    And it is good for anxiety as well!

    Plus prohibition DOES NOT WORK. Period.
    What were people doing when alcohol was illegal? Drinking. All the time.

    Just like all things, if not done in moderation, it will #$%@ you up. Eat too much food, you become obese, play too many video games, and other things in your life begin to suffer, job, relationships, etc. If you can't control yourself, then it's not the fault of the activity, it's the fault of the person, IMO.

    I'm in favour of self control as opposed to government control for most things, so I would be for legalization for both medical, and recreational purposes.

    Also all for it.

    It's a natural plant, I've read into it a little and there's lots of benefits for it.

    I suppose if is going to help people cope with a very painful illness then why not. I don't see what all the controversy is about.

    medical marijuana is generally not smoked. it is modified chemically into a pill form. when you smoke marijuana you lose a lot of the active ingredients.

    i think mj should be completely legal, not just for medical purposes
    it would lose its widespread use and popularity after a few years and the government could stop putting so much money towards cops salaries and use it for something constructive or just give it back to the taxpayers who gave it to them
    but thats just my opinion...
