I believe that for terminal diseases such as cancer Medical Marijuana should be used as much as possible in place of man made drugs


"Medical Marijuana is better than man made pills" assumes that cannabis is better for treating medical conditions than man made pills. While medical Cannabis is proven to help with much pain management and as been proven very useful in some fields it leaves others void of any treatment in which man made pills prove their use.

If a woman needs birth control should she take man made pills instead of using cannabis to protect against unwanted pregnancy? No this is foolish

If someone has a bacterial infection that requires antibiotics they should use pills instead of cannabis? Of course not.

If someone has schizophrenia they should take man made pills instead of just using cannabis? There is good reason why we don't.

To say medical marijuana is the be all and end all for medicine is a blanket statement that shows a lack of understanding of empiricism.

so people who are sick should just get high instead of actually dealing with the problem? Don't know if you've heard, but weed doesn't kill cancer.
