Amendment 2 or the right to Medical Marijuana would certainly make using medical marijuana lawful under specific health and wellness problems. Individuals or caretakers with an issued permit by a doctor would additionally be enabled to go to registered marijuana therapy centers (Ballotpedia 2014). Not just anybody can get a clinical marijuana permit though. People must be identified with a “debilitating medical condition” such as cancer, HIV or glaucoma. The Florida Department of Health would certainly be accountable for regulating medical marijuana as well as it would certainly also release identification cards and also establish treatments for treatment facilities. In the adhering to passages I will go over the benefits and drawbacks of marijuana, just how poor individuals can acquire it if they can not afford it and exactly how I personally really feel regarding change 2 and the legalisation of marijuana.
Medical marijuana has several health advantages such as alleviating chronic discomfort as a result of a disease or alleviating stress and anxiety after a long or busy day. The evidence is proven by study that marijuana can eliminate certain sorts of pain, queasiness, vomiting, and other incapacitating signs brought on by such diseases as cancer cells as well as AIDS in individuals around the globe (ProCon 2014). Sanjay Gupta, MD, Principal Medical Reporter for CNN mentioned that marijuana does not have a high capacity for abuse as well as there are extremely legit applications.

Although there are a number of legit advantages of medical marijuana, there are still those who differ and also suggest that the legalisation of clinical marijuana would be unsafe to society.
The ones that are against Amendment 2 and also the lawful use marijuana suggest it might be damaging to society by causing an increase in criminal activity. Diocesan Ron Allen asserted that marijuana would increase criminal activity and hardship in Berkeley and he discusses, “Study tells us that marijuana has the same results on the satisfaction central system in the brain as heroin as well as fracture cocaine.” (OpposingViews 2014) Fans of marijuana like Mason Tvert, of the Marijuana Policy Task differ with Allen, specifying that Allen really did not recognize what he was speaking about and also marijuana has actually been verified to be less hazardous and less habit forming than other drugs. “The truth is that Medical organizations across the country as well as more than 80% of Americans believe marijuana can assist seriously sick individuals (Opposite Sights) states Tvert.” A study performed by the University of Texas at Dallas located that legalized marijuana might decrease crimes like robbery and murder.
