I am a student at West Junior High School, and I was wondering about laws 
that say you can or cannot use marijuana for medical uses.

There are only 10 states that allow medical marijuana use. The states are 
California, Alaska, Colorado, Hawaii, Maine, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, 
Vermont and Washington.

If drugs help people stay alive or help them live through pain, I think 
they should let people use drugs for medical purposes only. If someone in 
my family needed a drug to stay alive, I would want them to use it, but if 
they did not want to use I would respect them and let them do what they 
wanted to do.
