A hot top that has made it’s way into many 21st Century conversations is the topic of marijuana and if it has enough health benefits to make it legal. For over the last 30 years, 25 of the 50 states have legalized the use of marijuana for medical purposes. Arguments against medical marijuana say that it is too dangerous, lacks proper approval from the FDA and that it is not useful. Some more extreme claims say that marijuana is addictive and leads to more dangerous drug use if abused. Arguments for medical marijuana claim that marijuana can reduce the effects of cancer, AIDS, multiple sclerosis, joint pain, glaucoma, epilepsy, and much more. While more and more studies come out studying the use of medical marijuana, look for the legalization of marijuana in a state near you.
