If Marijuana Can Be Used For Medical Purposes, Whats The Issue With Recreational Use? If states acknowledge that Marijuana has Medicinal Properties by allowing Medical Marijuana, what are all these prohibitionists talking about when they say that its dangerous, addictive, too potent, is a stepping stone, etc.? If its allowed under medical use = it can be used recreationally with no problems. *I understand DANGEROUS DRUGS like pharma, or Heroin. But a freaking plant? Why is the public so confused here, they can't put two and two together?
