While reading the paper it has come to my realization that using marijuana as a medicine could be a good thing. On the front page (Sept. 9th) there was an article about a mom wanting it to be legalized in liquid form to help her son ("Utah mother wants to see medical marijuana in liquid form treatment"). Medical researchers are always looking for cures and new medicine.
In the article it is stated that there are 18 states that have already legalized the use of marijuana as a medicine. The article also states that there are 100,000 Utahns who have epilepsy. If other states are already using it, and it has shown improvement with patients, why aren't we using it? It could be a very good thing for Utah, and I feel it is very important to be looked at and recognized by people.
In my opinion, it wouldn't be right to keep such a medical discovery from Utah. We should do what is going to help the people, regardless of religious, or anti-drug views.
