Medicine and many different treatment options have had a huge impact in the world and are constantly being researched for their abilities. Medical marijuana has been a big topic of discussion especially lately because of people’s political standpoints and legalization of it. According to the article, marijuana can be used to help treat symptoms of cancer, AIDS, Multiple Sclerosis, pain, glaucoma, and many other conditions. I believe marijuana should be treated as a medicine and give it to those people who are in need of it and have these conditions. 

Since before the world of modern medicine, indigenous people have been incorporating cannabis into everyday treatments. In ancient China, the cannabis plant was originally used as a fiber for building but eventually, its medicinal properties were discovered. It was then used as an anesthetic during the first surgeries. From then on, people started to use cannabis more and more frequently. Eventually, it made its way to the West where it became increasingly popular. Soon a synthetic version of THC was made; the development of synthetic drugs is what has primarily caused conflict about the legalization95g of medical marijuana.

People argue that medical marijuana is too dangerous to use, that various legal drugs make marijuana use unnecessary, and lacks FDA approval. They say marijuana is addictive, leads to harder drug use, interferes with fertility, impairs driving ability, and injures the lungs, immune system, and brain. They say that medical marijuana is a front for drug legalization and recreational use. But I believe that the positives outweigh the negatives.

    From my student Glenn – (In Delaware at Woodbridge High) – He wrote – “In my opinion regarding the use of marijuana being a medical option, is a good idea but the users should be monitored so they can’t abuse the substance for non medical reasons. Or so they can’t share it with those who don’t need it.”

    Dear Timothy,
    I agree that people who have these issues should be able to use marijuana for their conditions if they feel it helps. I think there shouldn’t be a synthetic version because its a plant and can keep being grown so why make a synthetic version. I think it can have some bad depending on the person because people say it is a gateway drug but I think it could be a gateway drug if the person chooses to use harder drugs because not every person that uses marijuana become addicted to harder drugs.

    Dear Timoteo :
    I am i agree with your publication, “should marijuana Be a Medical option?”, because es verdad que muchas personas utilizan la marihuana como un tipo de medicina muchos la utilizan para prevenir el cáncer, sida y otros tipos de enfermedades. Pero hay otras personas que no lo utilizan para curarse y se están afectando a sí mismas. La marihuana es muy buena medicina según las personas que la han utilizado y les ha hecho buen efecto.
    One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “la gente argumenta que la marihuana medicinal es demasiado peligrosa para usar” I think this is muy importante because como lo mencione anteriormente muchas personas no utilizan la marihuana como medicina y después de un tiempo abusan en el consumo de la marihuana. Según las personas que utilizan la marihuana solo la utilizan para sentirse bien o relajarse, o para olvidar sus problemas por un momento pero después de que hace efecto la marihuana todo vuelve ala normalidad y es por eso que abusan sobre el consumo de marihuana.
    Thanks for you writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because me gusta mucho la manera en que escribe sus publicaciones y son muy importantes para nuestra sociedad. Hablar sobre la importancia que tiene la marihuana en nuestro planeta es algo de mucho interés para que las personas tengan entendimiento sobre los beneficios y problemas que tiene el consumo de la marihuana o de pende para que la usen.
    cómo la usarías tú si tuvieras una enfermedad?
