Legalize medical marijuana As far as I'm concerned, I don't know why this hasn't been enacted yet. Marijuana is a natural plant that has been used medically for years. It offers similar calming effects that anxiety relief focused pharmaceutical drugs do. The sale of Zanax and other anxiety relieving drugs have literally ruined some of my friends lives. The craving for some of these drugs is on par with herion. Sure marijuana isn't as strong as Zanax but it certainly is less addicting. The ease of obtaining Zanax even without a prescription is mind boggling, especially with the effects that it can have on the human body. Making marijuana legal may stray some of these kids away from Zanax and other pharmaceutical drugs that are making the Government a lot of money.
