you believe in the legalization of marijuana for medical purposes?Although I don't use
it I believe in the legalization of pot for both medical and recreational purposes. Drugs
are fine, it's the cars we need to get rid of.
I just believe in legalising it full stop.
If the government legalised and taxed it, they'd make a killing. And the smell is a lot
more pleasant than that of cigarettes.
Cardiff ENGLAND I really don't have an opinion. Laura, 36
Lowell, MA USA Yes. Jill, 60
Saylorsburg, PA USA As marijuana has been demonstrated to have some clear medical benefits, I think it should be treated as a "controlled substance" available by prescription. Jane, 60
West Linn, OR USA Yes definitely. Felicia, 35
Lowell, MA USA *shrug* Karen, 21
Marshelltown/Ames, IA USA If it helps, use it. Tracy, 24
Ocean City, NJ USA in a perfect society, yes. but in the real world, i think a lot of people would abuse the privelege of having such a popular drug legalized. besides, i think in today's medical world, with all these crazy breakthroughs, modern science can find a healthy chemical alternative to weed.

Boston, MA USA Sure, why not. Talia, 23
Wilton, CT USA I do believe in the legalization of marijuana. Eric, 19
Beverly Hills, CA USA With strict controls, yes. Jonathan, 19
Brevard, NC USA Absolutely: I have long held that marijuana is okay for medicinal use...it's not a popular position, but at least Axl Rose and Guns N' Roses agree with my position...great minds think alike, right? Mick, 30
Chicago, IL USA Yes. Steve, 29
Lake Worth, FL USA I don't think marijuana should be legalized for medical use because I feel there are probably other things out there that work just as well at killing or numbing pain. I'm afraid if it was legalized for medical use, "personal use" would be right around the corner. Reba, 51
Rockville, MD USA Yes. I might even go so far as to believe in the legalization of marijuana, period. Maybe. etoile, 20
Washington, DC USA I don't really know about actual medicinal benefits, but if it can offset symptoms for those in agony, and especially those who are incurable...I say go for it. Fisch, 45
Preston, CT USA I am for the legalization of marijuana, period. Maggie, 20
Sandwich, IL USA No I do not believe in legalizing marijuana for medical purpose's. There are many medications a sick person can take to help what they think the marijuana helps whether it is for nausea etc. It is just another way that people get to use an excuse to use marijuana. All these years I have known many people with cancer and they got through with the medications that were offered. So there fore there is no addiction and going to further drugs such as cocaine etc.
In short, yes.
I believe in the legalization of marijuana for all purposes. I don't think it's healthy or safe, but look at tobacco... tobacco is neither safer nor healthier. Also, I come from Oklahoma. Marijuana is more easily available now than it would be if it were legal--if it were legal, government could to extent supervise who gets ahold of it and how.
Yes, I do, and actually, for non-medical reasons too (and no, I don't smoke it)..but I say that b/c I think that if it were legalized fewer people would use it. Part of the fun is that it's illegal and thus a way of not conforming.
If it makes the person feel better... then yes... but not if they're just going to abuse the privilege.
Chicago, IL USA
E. Brunswick, NJ USA sure. . . mothmc, 36
Los Angeles, CA USA I believe in legalization of marijuana for ALL purposes. Think of how peaceful the world would be... A-Dog, 18
McMinnville, OR USA I believe marijuana should be legalized for every purpose! Medical, entertainment, relaxation, household use, heck, there's more than one use for the stuff! If everyone knew what kind of usage they would get out of it, everyone would fight to legalize it. I think it is really silly that alcohol and cigerettes are legal but marijuana is not. Stupid, stupid, stupid. Lisa J., 22
