I Think Marijuana should be legal

By Tyrees Mills

Marijuana should be completey legal

I support the effort to legalize marijuana because it is the safest drug and it is non-addictive

you can not overdose on it and may be able to cure cancer. In a surprising move, CNN is reporting that marijuana may be a potential cure for certain types of cancer after numerous studies have shown the viability of cannabis as a potential cancer treatment. The report of marijuana being a potential cure was less surprising than the fact that it was covered prominently by a mainstream media outlet.The stunning admission comes as Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN’s Chief Medical Correspondent, has gone on record stating,“It’s time for a medical marijuana revolution.”Marijuana may be able to slow the progression of Alzheimer's disease, a study led by Kim Janda of the Scripps Research Institute suggests.

The 2006 study, published in the journalMolecular Pharmaceutics, found that THC, the active chemical in marijuana, slows the formation of amyloid plaques by blocking the enzyme in the brain that makes them. These plaques are what kill brain cells and cause Alzheimer's. Marijuana has many benefits that not man people know and many portray it as this horrible drug that causes lung cancer but in,reality it is not as bad as alcohol or cigarets. I say that because how is alcohol legal but it causes liver and it is addictive. Cigarettes cause lung cancer and it is addictive weed is non-addictive and it is helps with sickness and anxiety. I believe you
