To use the term marijuana as in being legalised, is deceptive and 
dangerous. One's use of medicinal marijuana to relieve pain is fully 
justifiable. The smoking of marijuana as a weed sold on the street is 
not. The latter, even with small usage, kills brain cells, is linked 
to deaths on the road, long term damage to the lungs and it 
accentuates depression from those already suffering from it. Any 
literature being promoted by the press needs to make a very clear 
distinction between the two.
