Has the US advanced enough to legalize medical marijuana nationwide?

Asked by jazmina88 (11642points) March 20th, 2010

so, 13 states have legalized marijuana for medical use. What do you think? Is marijuana viable for relieving pain, nausea for cancer and many other illnesses? Has our country moved forward enough for this to be carried nationwise?

This is a big issue and a big question to answer. I believe there are many legitimate, medical benefits for marijuana but there’s a lot of debate around it. There’s a lot of information out there on the issue – this may give you a quick overview.

14 states. NJ being the 14th.

Apparently not yet.

Yes, marijuana has proven its effectiveness in minimizing harsh side effects in the treatment of cancer patients.
That property alone should have voters begging to get it legalized medicinally.
If you have ever been to the deep south and the midwest, you have seen just how far we have really come.

I myself have some severe chronic pain from fibromyalgia, as the latest diagnosis.
Some states I feel have their heads in the sand, being closeminded and judgemental.

I feel all people are entitled to humane and fair treatment. This is not an easy issue.
