It makes no sense that medical marijuana is not legal yet opiates are.

It is very rediculous... Marijuana is much safrer than opiates. People say marijuana will lead to other things, well arn 't those things opiates? Opiates are much more dangerous than marijuana, I am not understanding peoples arguments against medical marijuana.

first off medical marijuana is legal under certain curcumstances but the reason alot of drugs now that were once legal that are illegal now is because people are irresponsible. Just like one person said about gun control "Guns dont kill people, people kill people", and thats true, people are the problem and thats the reason you cant have certain things in society because people are the ones who ruin it for people who might actually do whatever it is that they do in a responsible way so yes the current system is fine. But if you to they should ban all opiate based Rx pills because one people get addicted and drug dealers get of hold of them and sell them to adults , teenagers, and kids.In closing in you look at the bigger picture drugs are always going to be here and we can stop them we can contain so if people can learn to be responsible than maybe you can see changes come about.

What the heck? How could you have written all that and think you were on topic? Your like a kid taking a test who gets an essay he doesn't like so he tries to write his own, then gets an F. You don't even mention medical marijuana.

"Since 1996, Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Maine, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington have passed legislation that removes state-level penalties from marijuana use by patients who have a doctor's recommendation. In addition, Maryland passed a medical marijuana affirmative defense law in 2003. This dictates that if a person is arrested for marijuana use but is found to be using marijuana out of medical necessity, she or he will only face a modest fine. "-http://ask.yahoo.com...
