I have no problems with allowing medical uses of cannabis such as alleviating the symptoms of chemotherapy (eg nausea & weight loss), if it can be shown to be effective.It's been effective for a lot of people with anxiety disorders and chronic pain. I'm going to try it. I could care less about any side effects. To me its like going over to my neighbor's house and having a cigarette and a Budweiser. Its always unwise to simply think only of the negative impact a substance has on a person. The only thing they should decide whether the gain is worth the risk. And if risk is very low and you like it then I say go for it. I'm biased of course. I lost 10 years of my life to intolerable chronic pain. I wanted to die and let that be the end of it. Nothing has happened or will happened that can make up for that kind of torture.
A lot of politicians and bearcats are horrible people. E.g. it's not legal to smoke pot in Massachusetts for recreational purposes. But my landlord is our town's housing authority and he's quite uncaring since he's made it such that residents can't smoke in their own homes, neither Tabaco or pot. Nor can we smoke it outside. I wager that he's being driven by an racial stereotype. When I spoke to him about it he seemed to have to restrain himself from saying "Those people." Grrrrr....
