Legalizing Medical Marijuana

You should legalize medical cannabis

Dear Future President,

You should legalize medical cannabis. In some cases medical cannabis helps people. In a case, a young school girl (age 10) suffered from a disease. The doctor offered to use medical marijuana to help her. Her parents were skeptical about it , but later on agreed to it. Now the girl is on a faster way to recovery. There are 2.6 million new marijuana users since 2001. Marijuana is safer than cigarettes. Here are some reasons to legalize marijuana.

Pros:

  • Stops cancer
  • Treats Glaucoma
  • Undoes tobacco effects
  • Treats epileptic seizures
  • Decreases anxiety
  • Increases appetite
  • Drink less alcohol
  • Reduces nausea
  • More creative
  • Treats asthma
  • Treats migraines

Cons:

  • Increases depression
  • A risk of diabetes 
  • Risk of being addicted 
  • Reduces IQ
  • Low blood pressure
  • Schizophrenia
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Poor lung health 
  • Second hand-smoking

Sincerely,

Prada S.
