  1. Here is a statement from the one presidential candidate who actively supports the legalization of medical marijuana nationwide! “[T]here is very little evidence that smoking marijuana as a means of taking it represents a significant health risk. Although cannabis has been smoked widely in Western countries for more than four decades, there have been no reported cases of lung cancer or emphysema attributed to marijuana. I suspect that a day’s breathing in any city with poor air quality poses more of a threat than inhaling a day’s dose — which for many ailments is just a portion of a joint — of marijuana.”You can read more and support her campaign on her site http://denisebedio.com/marijuana.
