Legalize Medical Marijuana In West Virginia

Marijuana has so many medicinal properties. It's a shame West Virginian's can't benefit from them. I could present all kinds of statistics but the bottom line is, marijuana should not be illegal in the first place!

Our prison's are packed with people who were simply caught in possession of a plant that could help cancer patients cope with the horrible disease. And most of these inmates are first time offenders! Why put first time, non-violent offenders in prison at all? It only puts a burden on tax payers and devastates the families of inmates.

It has been said that marijuana is the "gateway" to higher drugs. That's baloney and anyone who has a functioning brain knows it. It could also be said that alcohol is a gateway to a higher drug. But who cares, right? It's legal. But how many lives are taken each year by drunk drivers? Like anything, alcohol is abused. It also has medicinal benefits when used as a medicine. Anything can be abused.

Please legalize marijuana in West Virginia. Let us decide whether we want to use it as our medicine or not.

      Because i believe marijuana has many health benefits. Not only has there never been any recorded deaths but my father smoked it for his chronic back pain and felt fine after medicating. Marijuana should be accepted for what it is and not the myths.

      We the people need a choice in the medicine we put into our bodies !! The government should not tell us what we can and can't consume !
