Proponents of medical marijuana argue that it can be used to treat a number of distressing symptoms. Have you ever used, or considered using, medical marijuana? Do you think it should be legalized in every state? Maybe you think it's all a farce and marijuana should be illegal, regardless of its purpose. Share your thoughts and feelings about medical marijuana with other users.
it is ok.
- It is really a fact that marijuana has medical use.. studies have done so no need to question its therapeutic benefits. I think the idea of legalizing marijuana for medical purposes shoulb be done as long as it will be used for the health of mankind. but of course we can't still remove the fact about its harmful effect especcially in addiction issue.. so I recommend that maybe the use of marijuana for medical purpose must be in a way that it will be only used for medicine.. convert it into drugs, tablet form or any form and make it as a prescription drug..

"Comfort" comes in many ways "Da"
- For the past 18 months out of 37 years of my nursing career as a hospice on-call crises nurse, I have been given the opportunity to provide comfort that seems, in many ways, nothing short of incredible. I have been truly blessed to be able to have this opportunity to help terminal patients, providing comfort in the last days of their lives. It's often said that there are two ways of passing on:1)peacefully in your sleep and 2)participating in the race of death. If one must be in that race, then one often needs all the help one can get. This can mean using strong narcotics such as morphine, ativan, haldol etc. These can create a calming effect and hopefully allow the patient to breath easier and pass comfortably. Medical Marijuana can be used for the same "comfort" reasons that the stronger narcotics are used in end-of-life care. I have seen firsthand, the benefits of medical marijuana to patients who suffer from Cancer, MS, CP, Alzhemier, AIDS wasting syndrome and so on..Lets Rol

- i have seen so many people in hospital and home, including my granmother, and mother who are in such pain. shame on our government to not help relieve suffering for these people and make them feel like a criminal when they are dying. i watch my mom take 15 or more pills a day, and she gets sick from the med. all for a tax dollar. there is a difference in medical, and pleasure. when pts take pills they can't keep them in there system! my husbands mother died with weight of 43lbs.. shame on us..this is not a moral issue, this is medical.. i don't even drink.. sometimes we need to help the pt. more than finding a way to tax something. i have seen the difference on both sides.

- I hope that by the time I retire from being a Hospice nurse I can call our DME company and order a vaporizer for home delivery. I think it is shameful that medicinal marijuana is not readily available for any patient who would benefit from it and requests it.

All For Legalized Medicinal Marijuana
- I would like to see medicinal marijuana legalized in every state. The proposed uses were started nearly 30 years ago. One was to eliminate the nautiousness of Chemotherapy and Radiation in Cancer patients. I recently met a woman who was given marijuana in response to her Chemotherapy treatment. She indicated that it was standard practice for her doctor. I wish it had been available about 30 years ago when my grandmother was going through Chemotherapy treatment.

More study needed
- I think it's great that some states have legalized marijuana for medicinal use but I would like to see real evidence that it actually works. The FDA should allow wide spread clinical trials - then we'll really know if it's effective and for what.
