Pro to the question "Should Marijuana Be a Medical Option?"
"Probably the safest bet on the characteristics of the minority physicians has to do with age: the younger the doctor, the greater the likelihood that he will minimize its dangers; the older the doctor, the more danger he will see in pot smoking. Because of this generational difference, it is entirely possible that a tolerant attitude in the medical profession towards cannabis use will become increasingly common and may, in time, become the reigning sentiment. That day, in any case, will be a long time in coming."
