Re: medical marijuana.
Three different pills are available that contain the active ingredient in marijuana that people do find helpful. Any legitimate doctor can prescribe one of these meds for cancer patients, those with chronic illnesses or other symptoms that these pills may alleviate.
No legitimate doctor that would encourage or prescribe to patients to inhale dirty smoke into their lungs. There is no reason to smoke marijuana for “health” reasons. Anyone who says they believe that is just kidding themselves.
