Marijuana has phenomenal medical benefits for those with chronic pain or psycological disorders like PTSD. Opiods are destroying Americans lives rapidly, so this alternative natural option should absolutely be legal everywhere. For recreational use, most studies show that the "dangers" of marijuana are a fraction of the dangers of alcohol. We need to stop pretending this drug is so terrible. Giving marijuana users the same criminalization as those who are involved with meth, heroine, and opiods is completely absurd and unfair. We need to allow scientists to study it's medical benefits to a fuller extent. Full research will also give us more information about the substance, only to further prove that its side effects are minimal. We need to stop criminalizing things simply because conservatives don't like change! Science and progress are the only ways to better our society.
