Medical marijuana should it be legal

There is a debate that has been going on for years, and until today it has not been fully resolved. Everyone knows what marijuana is, and the ease to be able to get this drug is rather scary. Marijuana has been linked to many crimes that take place every day. It is known to be a soft drug that teenagers start to experiment with, before moving on to something stronger like cocaine.

We can all sit down and start to bash marijuana and all the bad side-effects that this drug brings. At the same time, there are a number of advantages that come along with marijuana, which not many people know about. For example, for people who are suffering from eating disorders, marijuana has been known to increase their appetite and speed up the process of curing them.

For patients who are suffering from terminal conditions like cancer or AIDS. Medical marijuana has been known to control the nausea of patients who are undergoing chemotherapy. It also helps ease the pain they are feeling and helps them sleep. Since terminal patients do not have long to live, should medical marijuana be given to them to help ease their pain and suffering? This debate has been going on for years and it is still unresolved.
