3/4 doctors support medical marijuana, why isn't this talked about?

I. Those who oppose marijuana legaliztion frequently tell us that there is no medical purpose to marijuana. Well, tell that to 3/4 doctors. Those with medical degrees. 76% of doctors in North America, according to a survey in the New England Journal of Medicine favor medical marijuana.

II. Trish and Daryl Bertrand grew marijuana in a Missouri County in order to treat his back pain. About 10% of it was sold or given away to friends. Well, the couple were busted and he was given a so called break by allowing him to attend a drug court. What if you are a cancer patient and you are arrested the break you received was that your anti-cancer drugs would be taken away by the government, but you wouldn't be sentenced to prison. How absurd of a break would that be? \

This couple's business was destroyed from the publicity of the arrest. They couldn't afford their nice home so they had to move into a high crime area. A violent high crime area fueled in part, directly or indirectly, by ug cartel marijuan growers, in contrast to the peaceful Bertrand family.

Organizations such as the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws and DRCnet exist to reform these idiotic prohibitions on marijuana. It is time we end a climate of irrationally that justifies imprisoning people for using marijuana for medical purposes. Viagra isn't illegal, nor should it be, and it is taken for only sexual purposes. Marijuana is taken to relieve horrible pain, something that most people would state is more medically important. I urge your support on this issue.
