Marijuana should absolutely be federally legal, but there are still some states that do not allow the sale of medical marijuana.
I am extraordinarily thankful not to live in one of those backwards states where marijuana has not been legalized. I have been a marijuana smoker since I was much younger. I started using marijuana with my friends for fun. I realized very quickly that I felt much more calm and relaxed when I was high. I had a ton of energy when I was a kid. ADHD was not something discussed 40 years ago. I probably would have done well if I was on some type of medication, but my parents simply believed that I was over active and hyper. When I smoked weed with my friends, I felt like I could concentrate and relax. I even slept better. When I was in college, I got sent to the Infirmary and I mentioned medical marijuana use to the doctor on staff. The doctor thought medical marijuana was a great idea for me. He offered to give me some information on materials so I could find someone in Albuquerque to help me get a legal card. There were a ton of doctors in Albuquerque that were legally able to write a prescription. Since then, I have regularly been using medical marijuana. I was really happy when the state of New Mexico passed the legalization of recreational Cannabis act. Now the prices on medical marijuana are even lower. I also save a ton of money on excise taxes that everyone else has to pay. Since I have a medical card, I am not obligated to pay the extra fees.
