This paper discusses the much-debated topic of legalized marijuana. The paper begins by providing background information on marijuana and its effects on the body and then proceeds with a discussion of the positive side-effects of marijuana and how these side-effects can be effective in the treatment of certain ailments.

From the Paper:

"Currently, many controversial topics divide the nation, giving rise to debate and argument amongst the people. Gun control, abortion, and the death penalty are such prevalent subjects that the slightest news related to them can be seen in newspapers, magazines, and other sources of media. National debates have been waged over such issues, and national organizations have been founded to gather supporters for their cause. These subjects are important of course, but they overshadow other issues that could find resolution with more publicity. In the cases of many controversial topics, the facts are not presented in a manner which clarifies people's common misconceptions. One issue with many of these misconceptions is the legalization of medical marijuana."
