What do you think of medical marijuana? (specifically medical marijuana relating to the article - I'm more interested in the use of it in medicine as opposed to the use of it at such a young age, and the use of low psychoactivity marijuana)

And don't get me wrong, I'm against abusing legal drugs and the use of illegal ones; this isn't one of those threads where I try to convince you about how the big pharma companies are conspiring against everyone...

To be perfectly honest with everyone, I'm even contemplating not posting this question, I really don't want to be seen to be considering its use as medicine :s

It should be used an a medicine. Considering is has been featured in hundreds of articles and studies showing its positive effects on those with chronic illnesses. If it improves quality of life I see no reason for it not to be used.

Otherwise illegal opiates such as codeine, morphine, diamorphine (which is basically heroin btw), are widely used medically. Why should the many supposed medical properties of cannabis not be properly explored and used if they are proven to be effective? Frankly I think drug prohibition is insanity. It has done nothing but fuel violent crime across the planet, and restrict potentially life changing medical advances.

It does seem odd that heroin and cocaine derivatives are used so extensively, as well as things like ketamine and actual heroin, without question, whereas cannabis use is somehow consideted controversial.
