It should be noted that this may be mainly because nobody has studied these issues nearly enough; drug makers see no benefit for themselves and the government has refused to get involved. But there just is no evidence that would justify bending the laws around this issue. And while as drugs go marijuana is not very dangerous, it can mess you up:
Serious adverse events included asthenia, balance problems, confusion, dizziness, disorientation, diarrhea, euphoria, drowsiness, dry mouth, fatigue, hallucination, nausea, somnolence, and vomiting.Speaking as someone who strongly supports the legalization of marijuana, I have always been bothered by the medical marijuana scam. By "scam" I mean that most of the advocates for medical marijuana are not much interested in medicine, but are just looking for ways to legitimize their favorite drug. Maybe that's the way politics has to be played in America; maybe there is a big mass of people who don't much care about pot but are not sufficiently in favor to vote for full legalization, making this a convenient way to get more cannabis on the market. But I despise that sort of dishonesty. I wish people would forget ginning up medical evidence and focus on the basic issue: marijuana is less bad for you than whiskey, so whether adults want to use it is just nobody else's business.
I have to wonder, though: why is euphoria on that list of adverse events?
