Yes it should because it can treat people for a lot of medical reasons and it can make cancer treatments such as chemotherapy a lot better.

I disagree on medical marijuana being legalized in all fifty states. Even thought It can help with cancers and such people will get there hands on it illegialy and use it. We have taught are kids in school that Marijuana is unheathly for the body but someone is gonna get there hands on that "medical" marijuna and sell it to teenagers on the side of the streets. Marijuna is a gateway drug. when people get there hands on it medically, there going to start using other more dangurase drugs that can cause more damage then marijuna gives. The Children are are future. If we get all these people selling pot on the streets what will happen to our future, as I said its a gateway drug and I won't be surprised if the rate of meth goes up as well.

wow I wish I could debate con. but i cant but i live in Colorado where pot has been legalized and we have seen an increase an our tax revinew for the state and while you say pot is a gateway drug that has never been proven and has no base to prove and in fact since pot has been legalized in Colorado our use of hard drugs has actually dropped so that kind disproves that. and as a high school student in writing from the child's prospect per say. So you say that we teach our kids pot is bad true but and a big but we also teach our kids that alcohol is bad yet its still out there and is a mulit-billion dollar industrie and we know all the negative health effects about it liver damage, drunkenness, depression, etc and same with smoking its terrible for you the amount of carcinogens in it and how it builds up tar in your lungs. Those two things are out there and there terrible for you alcohol has killed people just by its self but isn't humanly possible to smoke enough pot to kill you. I believe pot should be legalized just on the fact of what it well do to the economy if anything it well help it but if you say keep it illegal then make smoking and alcohol illegal too as there are just as bad if not worse than pot. and again you say you wouldn't be surprised if Meth use went up with the legalization of pot again in Colorado our hard drug usage like Meth, Crack, Heroin all have dropped since the legalization of pot please if you debate use facts more than opinion because you opinion just makes you look ignorant.
