This essay is a persuasive argument in support of legalizing marijuana in the United States. The author examines the history of the cannabis plant, and the medicinal properties of marijuana with regards to relieving pain in multiple sclerosis and cancer patients. The paper also details the opinions of advocates, and the opposition, in the marijuana legislation cause.

From the Paper:

"At present, the legalization of marijuana within the United States remains solidly blocked by the brick wall formed by a unified front of federal opposition. The campaign for legalization, however, has made progress on both public and governmental levels, progress that has put chinks in this seemingly insurmountable wall. As time passes, positions of power presently held by those whose opinions and attitudes were influenced by the misconceptions and misguided beliefs of the twentieth century will pass to those whose views were shaped by the more progressive values of the twenty-first century. Perhaps this passage of power will produce a more equally matched platform of debate in the argument of legalized marijuana and allow advocates of this issue access to avenues previously denied."
