To Governor Reynolds:


Medical marijuana should be legal in
all 50 of the United States. Only 29 states
and Washington D.C. have legalized
the medical use of marijuana. Medical
marijuana contains a higher amount of CBD (cannabidiol), which cancels out the
euphoria that THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) compared to recreational marijuana. Medical marijuana can help relieve symptoms of certain
medical conditions like anxiety, substance use disorders, schizophrenia, and


*Marijuana can be found in heath stores
in the form of hemp oil and hemp seeds, which are both rich in dietary fiber,
protein, and minerals. In the
mid-1800s to mid-1900s marijuana was an acceptable medical product in the
United States Pharmacopeia, USP. With the rise
of synthetic medicine, medicine-containing marijuana started to become. After a tax
act was passed in 1937, it became difficult to prescribe marijuana making
people forget about it.


Medical marijuana helps with cases of
appetite loss, Alzheimer’s disease, Crohn’s disease, cancer, eating disorders,
mental heath conditions, glaucoma, and muscle spasms. In Iowa you have to be diagnosed with Intractable
Epilepsy in order to use medical marijuana.

marijuana has been known to help with the burning pain in the hands and feet of
those who suffer from spinal cord injuries, AIDS, and diabetes. The studies of
pain relief show that patients that smoked cannabis had better results than
other methods tested.


The problem is, in order to receive
these heath benefits you have to live in a state where it is legal to obtain
medical marijuana. In order to
obtain card you have to visit a doctor to see if your condition or illness
qualifies you to use the drug. You may also
need a medical marijuana identification card or you have to be added to the
database in order to purchase the drug at a dispensary. The doctor will give you a recommendation and you
will then need to go to a medical cannabis dispensary.


*At any dispensary there is usually a
security guard at the door and you might need to walk through heavily locked
doors. Licensed
dispensaries are targets for thieves and criminals, because they tend to handle
vast amounts of cash, so security is their top priority. On your first
visit, you will need to have your handwritten recommendation; a copy is made
and entered into the system along with your paperwork. You will be
required to sign in and then relax in the waiting room. You can look at all of
the products offered, until your name is called. Once your name is called you
simply decide on which product you want and how much you need. The staff at
the dispensary will then help you to complete your transaction.


Compared to recreational marijuana,
medical marijuana does not make you high. The recreational use of marijuana was
only made illegal because minority groups used it. It was banned in 29 states by
1931 and only until recently the ban was lifted in only eight states, though 29
states allow the medical use of marijuana. In order to purchase recreational
marijuana you have to be at least 21 years old, while you only have to be 18 to
purchase medical marijuana from a dispensary only if it is legal in your state.


**Marijuana contains over 500
compounds. Cannabinoids, arguably being the most significant, produce pot’s
effects on your body. THC is associated with the “high” in recreational
marijuana. Some cannabinoids are psychoactive. Your brain produces its own
cannabinoids through its endocannabinoid system, (ECS). ECS is
important for functions such as emotions, sleep, appetite, and movement. THC affects
your body when it attaches to cannabinoid receptors causing slower reaction
times, impaired judgment, and causes poor memory.


Medical marijuana should be legalized
in every state. Studies show how medical marijuana can calm multiple symptoms of a
vast amount of ailments. It helps children suffering with epilepsy and seizures. The ban in
most states against marijuana use altogether is absurd; there are no reported
cases of lung cancer or emphysema caused by marijuana usage. Why are
cigarettes legal when they cause more than 480,000 deaths per year in the
United States, including 41,000 deaths caused by secondhand smoke exposure? On
average, cigarette smokers die 10 years earlier than nonsmokers. So why should
we make a product, that does not cause any diseases, illegal when the product
that does is widely used across the whole country? Medical marijuana helps people.
