Ian Fraser is mistaken thinking medicinal cannabis (marijuana) is a 
crock (Going To Pot Here? Mar. 9, 2015). Cannabis has been documented 
medically for over 5,000 years still without one single death. In 
Colorado, where it's legal both medically and recreationally, people 
continue using it for medical reasons. Historically there are so many 
medical issues treated with cannabis that it's undeniable. Further, 
another reason to allow sick people to use cannabis that doesn't get 
mentioned is because it is biblically correct since God created all 
the seed bearing plants saying they're all good on literally the very 
first page of the Bible. Many people know of cannabis as the tree of 
life and the very last page of the Bible indicates the leaves of the 
tree of life and they are for the healing of the nations. Christ 
Jesus risked jail in order to heal the sick.

However, I agree with Fraser, cannabis should be completely 
re-legalized to keep things honest.
