Back in 2008, voters in Michigan approved the formulation of the legalization of medical marijuana. The legislation legalized the medical use of marijuana, provides patients with legal protection, and established a state marijuana patient registry.
The drums of advocates and opponents of medical cannabis continue to beat but it seems a winner is coming out. More than half of US states including Michigan have now legalized medical marijuana and if this trend continues, the federal government may be convinced to reclassify cannabis as a schedule II drug just like Ritalin. Medical cannabis is the use of chemicals found in marijuana to treat or manage diseases and health conditions.
