A question about medical marijuana....?
Is this a decision that should be voted on by the legislature in the respective states?
Should this be put to statewide referendum for all of the voters to decide?
Should this be handled on the federal level (i.e. rescheduling marijuana)?
I am not sure which avenue I support, all I know is that its inhumane to deny people medicine that makes their lives better or could extend them. Personally, I suffer from debilitating chronic pain and I use medical marijuana to treat my pain, muscle spasm and to help me sleep. Formerly I was on strong narcotics like morphine ER and oxycontin but now I am able to manage my pain with marijuana and less addictive pharmaceuticals. Marijuana for me is a medical issue and should be left up to my doctors, not the state.
What are your thoughts on the topic?
