Hello. I am writing a research paper about whether Marijuana should be a medical option and whether recreational Marijuana should be legalized nationwide throughout the United States.

Currently, my stance on medical marijuana is see-sawing back and forth. I know that Marijuana for medical purposes has been legalized in many states, but I feel like that there is a lack of medical research on whether it actually benefits cancer patients. Does anyone else have an opinion on this? I have heard that medical patients using the drug is supposed to ease the pain that the patients, have, but aren't there other medicines available that can hinder these symptoms? My stance in this is not really firm since I have many questions that currently have not been answered.

Thank you.

It helps people get through pain without worrying about overdose or addiction, since it is not really a addictive drug.
