Marijuana is an illegal drug, and, admittedly, it makes some people "feel good." That is what drugs do -- make you feel good. That does not make legitimate medicine.
If Michigan makes an exception for those who claim smoked marijuana is medicine, it will open the door to widespread marijuana use and fraudulent claims of illness for all drug users.
This would have devastating effects on the state as a whole -- especially the millions of families struggling to raise children in a drug-free environment and addicts battling to break free of the deadly grip of drug addiction.
