Legalization of Medicinal Marijuana

Marijuana is a plant that has incredible medicinal use potential. For thousands of years, this plant has been used as a soothing medicine for many diseases. Cancer is one of these diseases that has taken too many lives already. Beside cancer, other diseases are curable by cannabis including Glaucoma, Epilepsy, Dravet’s Syndrome and many other. Many states declared them self as pro-marijuana as long as it’s primary use would be for medicine. So let’s see what states have what reasons to vote yes, for the legalization of cannabis.

California.

This is a state that is famous for its support for legalization of cannabis. A campaign called AUMA, or the Adult Use of Marijuana Act, has collected enough signatures, and it will most likely be on the ballot in 2016. This law would enable any adult person, over 21 years old, to have in their possession up to 4 grams of cannabis for recreational use. Also any one would be free to grow up to six plants in their yard, field or any other place that is legally owned by them. The cultivation of this plant on states ground would still be illegal.

Arizona.

Being that marijuana is great for soothing or even in some cases completely stopping epileptic seizures, Arizona’s Legalization Act called LRMA started signature gathering in order to make this law available in the upcoming ballot. It would allow the cultivation of up to twelve plants in a private area. Also, every person above 21 would be able to pose one ounce of marijuana, like in other pro-cannabis states. Taxes and regulation would come with this initiative that would dictate the cannabinoid industry. The outcomes of this ballot will remain to be seen.

Why the need for Medicinal Marijuana.

Pharmaceutical companies are charging a fortune for drugs that are firsts of all synthetic, secondly full of side effects, and lastly now even 90 percent efficient. Nature has given us more or less everything that we need. And the same group of people that is ruling this planet, creating laws and dictating history course, doesn’t like the idea of making something free and available. The fact that something that is far more efficient than their pill, and also totally natural, is to be available for everyone doesn’t make them happy. By making marijuana legal global pharmaceutical companies would gradually lose money, and eventually become bankrupt. And that is something they will not allow. This is why only some of the states are for legalizing marijuana for medicinal use.

Few countries declared marijuana legal within their borders, and they can only serve as an example that only united we can prevail. Before the prohibition, cannabis was legal. The biggest argument that can be used against all those that oppose legalization of marijuana is that there isn’t even one case of marijuana overdose. The same cannot be said about alcohol as more people die from alcohol-related diseases than from terrorist attacks. So let’s ask us, what is the real reason for making marijuana illegal?
