One of the medications prescribed by my personal physician for my
arthritis pain and inflammation has the rare potential side effect of
death. In other words, if I take this medication as prescribed, I can
die as a result.

On the other hand, marijuana has never been documented to have killed
a single person in the 5,000-year history of its use.

For me, marijuana is the more effective medication. Right now, if
adult citizens opt for the safer and more effective medication, they
are subject to arrest and being sent to jail with violent criminals.

Shouldn't adult citizens have the freedom to choose what goes into
their own bodies in the privacy of their own homes?
