Marijuana has properties that actually cuts carcinogen like tumors and cells from building in the body by half, or so I've read. It also relieves pain and suffering for people who suffer from the last stages of cancer, anorexia, multiple sclerosis, hemorhagia, parkinsons disease, and other life-threatening or otherwise painful illnesses. To date there has been no link between physical addictions and this drug. Cigarettes and alcohol are far more addictive and dangerous, and to some, THOSE LEGAL DRUGS are the gateway drugs. Now I'm sure you've heard this all before and just wanted to see how many people would reiterate this so I'll be one. I've never touched a joint a day in my life or rolled up once. But let us not be fools in sayin that Cannabis has NO type of place in the medical world. Too much of any good thing can go awry. Look at vicoden... And penicillin.
