Back in the early twentieth century, marijuana was mainly used for medical purposes in the US. Now, both it 's recreational and medical use is increasingly being consumed by the population and the tendency is to continue increasing. Much has been said about the use of marijuana as a solution to different health problems, and although not everything that is said is true, it cannot be ignored that marijuana can help in the treatment of some cases of adult patients. CNN’s chief medical correspondent, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, was opposed to the medicinal use of cannabis. Based on his knowledge as a neurologist, he was convinced that the drug was dangerous and had dismissed its supposed therapeutic benefits.
Medical marijuana can be an answer to a lot of people’s problems. It’s time to make a change in those people’s lives and this could do it. I’m for legalizing it for medical purposes, but the question is; what are you for and what do you think should happen? People think they know marijuana, but do they really? Barney Warf describes how marijuana use originated thousands of years ago in Asia and since then, found its way too many other regions in the world.
In recent years there has been a debate on whether or not to legalize marijuana for medical use. People fear that it might be abused by others claiming to need it while those that truly need it, get put on the sidelines. Marijuana can be a hot topic, but with research people can come to understand why it should be legalized for medical use. For example, Amy and Lou Weiss are new marijuana entrepreneurs and they believe that their business can help those in pain. In their article called, “We Got into Medical Marijuana to Help People, Now We’re Under Siege”, in the Washington Post they prompt the idea that medical marijuana is needed to help ease pain, but major flaws such as logical fallacies can make it harder for the reader to comprehend their argument.
Growing up, everyone is told to stay away from any type of drugs. Now as a kid, I didn’t really understand the reason behind that phrase and once I became an adult, I found out that there have been many controversial discussions about the use of marijuana medically lately. I believe that the government of Kuwait should give patients the right to use marijuana for medical use because many doctors have discovered that marijuana works as a great pain killer, appetite increaser, and it reduced nausea. According to WebMD (2014), “The medical community is clearly saying they support using marijuana as a potential treatment option for any number of medical problems. In fact, many doctors already prescribe it.” Until this very day, I still question why has it this drug become illegal all over the world.
Attorney General Bill Lockyer said “shows the vast philosophical difference between the federal government and Californians on the rights of patients to have access to the medicine they need to survive and lead healthier lives.” Many citizens of California such as Robert Raich, Angel Raich and Diane Monson who support medical marijuana hoped their voice and the voice of people who support medical marijuana be heard in Congress. Diane Monson for example, was prescribed medical marijuana because of her lower back pain. On the same topic, Angel Raich was prescribed medical marijuana because without it, she would lose her appetite and die from a “wasting syndrome.” Angel Raich said “I don’t know how to explain it, I just can’t swallow without

Simply put, it appears that society has already experienced the negative effect of marijuana and had already set a perception of it; it is shown by the severe punishment given to citizens who uses marijuana.

Smokers in their numbers burden the health system and increase the expenditure of the country.

These monies would be spent on other products from more labor intensive companies. The aim of the ban in India was to discourage tobacco consumption. This has worked in other countries before.
