Pro to the question "Should Marijuana Be a Medical Option?"
Reasoning:

“If the voters have seen to it and a doctor agrees, it’s a travesty for the government to intercede… to get in the way of someone using something to alleviate their suffering. This is something that should be left to the states as American tradition dictates.”
