Michigan is struggling with the medical marijuana laws. The court systems is getting flooded with people who are getting arrested for carrying their medical marijuana, they are being charged with transporting and possession of marijuana. Some counties are creating ordinances banning medical marijuana dispensaries from opening up in their community.
Michigan's economy is very poor right now, medical marijuana can help put money back in the government. Some people truly need their medical marijuana and they shouldn't be forced into the streets to get it. Since the dispensaries opened up, they have developed medical marijuana soap for people with skin cancer, they users of the soap say the soap can clear up their skin cancer and dramatically improve their lives and are afraid of dieing if the close down the dispensaries. I think their mistake was opening dispensaries. They should have treated it as any other prescription, have the doctors prescribe the medical marijuana and let the pharmacies dispense the products the same as any other prescription. If people are dieing from cancer and suffering from other serious illnesses, let them have their medical marijuana.
In my opinion, there are more problems with alcohol than there is medical marijuana. More people a year get in serious accidents, kill others, and kill others drinking and driving. However, alcohol is not needed, the only thing alcohol does is cause serious injuries or death and create alcoholics in people who abuse alcohol.
By not accepting that medical marijuana make help those with serious diseases and cancer are only holding back scientists in discovering a cure for cancer. If marijuana soap can help clear up skin cancer, what else can it do? The government allow companies to put chemicals in our food and products that cause cancer, however they have a problem with people who have cancer using something that may help them. I say "Pick your battle." Not all battles are worth fighting and they are fighting the wrong battle. Fight the companies who put the chemicals in our food and products that cause cancer in the long run and leave the people who are dieing from cancer alone.
