The vast majority of people who use recreational drugs do not become addicts and do not need treatment. Most convicted criminals have used marijuana, as well as many other substances. There is no truth to the "Gateway Theory", as millions of Americans who admit to smoking pot do not desire harder drugs, and do not have life-ruining habits that began with pot smoking. This is the truth.
Research on the efficacy of marijuana use is non-existant in the USA due to a prohibition on research. International research, however, shows that marijuana's medicinal properties are undeniable.
We are supporting the "Truth in Trials" Act, H.R. 1717 to enable medical marijuana patients and providers in states with pro-medical marijuana laws to tell the juries the whole truth.
