    • I am impressed at this article. I believe that medical marijuana should be accessible to those who are seeking pain relief. I like how you incorporated data and studies showing that the medical marijuana does in fact, decrease pain significantly without many side affects. Overall, good job.

    • Estimada Olivia:
      Estoy muy interesada con su publicación “Medical Marijuana”, porque tiene mucha razón que muchas personas tienen problemas mentales por causa de esa droga.
      Es muy importante que las personas tengan conocimiento de los daños que puede causar esta droga.
      Muchas personas la usan como medicina pero es malo usarla diariamente puede causar problemas.
      Una frase que usted escribió que se destaca para mi es: “Esta enfermedad y crisis ha cobrado la vida de al menos 400,000 personas desde 1999”. Creo que esto es muy importante saberlo que consumir esta dosis puede perjudicarte.
      No solo a ti si no que también perjudica a las personas que están a tu alrededor.
      Gracias por tu escritura.
      Espero ver lo que escribes a continuación, por que me gusta mucho la forma en que escribes tus publicaciones. Das a conocer muchas cosas sobre las drogas.

    • Estimada Olivia;

      Estoy asombrado por su publicación (Marihuana medical) porqué la marihuana es algo importante en la vida cotidiana, y que si se usa como medicamento es más importante. Por que según los expertos la marihuana se puede usar como medical.
      Una frase que usted escribió que se destaca para mi es “Otro tratamiento de medicina alternativa es la marihuana medicinal. Según el Instituto Nacional sobre el Abuso de Drogas, se ha demostrado que la marihuana medicinal trata afecciones médicas tales como epilepsia, dolor por cáncer, anorexia, ansiedad, depresión, VIH / SIDA, abuso de sustancias y esclerosis múltiple.” creo que esto es algo más importante relacionado con la marihuana por que la marihuana puede curar algunas heridas que las medicinas no pueden.
      Gracias por su escritura. Espero ver lo que escribes a continuación , porque quiero aprender más sobre la marihuana y su uso en las enfermedades.

    • This article was very well written. I also agree that marijuana should be accessible to those who need it. Because it’s not, people are suffering.

    • Hi Olivia,
      I am impressed by the way you don’t exactly take a side on the argument but instead act like an audience member who is looking for why this is such a heated topic in today’s world. I also like the fact that you bring in professional opinions and facts on the issue itself. I agree that we must look at medical marijuana as something that can have many benefits in the medical world but also be careful as to who to give it to.

    • I really liked how you used the problem of opioid use as an introduction for your argument. It made your claim authentic and mature by presenting a solution to a present problem. You did a good job of providing a lot of facts from credible sources and weaving them into your article nicely.

    • This is a great article that bring about a lot of questions that appear in todays society. I liked that you started talking about the opioid epidemic, bringing in facts and information to help back up your claims. I liked how you wrote more as an educator rather than taking a side on the issue. I also believe that medical marijuana should be an alternate method to pain relief because it is natural and generally non addictive compared to the other common drugs used to treat pain. Nice job!
