Medical marijuana is the answer thats why our bright lawmakers passed the law authorizing its use when prescribed by a licensed physician. Advocates claim it is the medicine of the future with the side benefit of recreational highs. What does she have to lose, yet it may prove to be the only cure that will help. Go for it!

Actually, there is no such thing as "medical" Marijuana. In fact, "medical" Marijuana is a carcinogen that can increase suffering by causing cancer.
During the 60s 70s revolution, the druggie revolutionaries *(now in power)* dreamed of being supplied "free pot", the cost of which would be paid by the hard working "drug-free" taxpaying minority. Following the revolution, the druggies went on to seize academia at all levels - including high Government teaching positions at the elementary and secondary levels, the fat-cat holders of which are sucking from the public teat.
The really hard core revolutionary druggies went on to occupy high paid taxpayer funded positions at the Government controlled university level. Among their many schemes designed to "get back" at normal society was their associating mind rotting pot with Government provided and controlled, taxpayer funded, medical "care". The Orwellian NEWSPEAK they created to achieve this end was "medical" Marijuana.
Americans tend to view "works in progress" as the finished product, but we can expect the next argument the revolutionary druggies make will be that they should be provided taxpayer funded Government administered "free pot" because of their "medical condition".
