There's plenty of "buzz" ( pun intended) as of late in the arena of medical marijuana. The latest is a poll conducted by WebMD, that polled 1,544 doctors and a majority believe that marijuana should be legal for medical purposes.
56 percent of the doctors believe that it should be legal nationwide.
50 percent of the doctors surveyed in states where it's not legal believe that it should be.
67 percent believe it should be an option for medical patients.
That same poll (Pew) concluded that 76 percent surveyed don't believe people should be jailed for using small amounts.
Lawmakers, parents, and professionals everywhere believe the use of marijuana (especially for medicinal purposes) should be legal and decriminalized. The use of medical marijuana can be beneficial in the treatment of epilepsy, pain, and other medical conditions.
So the question isn't really about, should marijuana be legal for medical or recreational purposes? It's a matter of when will the non legal states legalize marijuana for either recreational or medical purposes?
