    Seeing the results of marijuana in curing diseases, the use of medical marijuana in Canada is being encouraged among people so that they can have their benefit.

    Before I applied to Health Canada, I did some research to understand why marijuana was deemed an illegal substance. There are many theories. Some point to taxation, some point to attempts to stop illegal immigration from Mexico and blaming African Americans for economic hard times. As ridiculous as that sounds, propaganda can be effective if packaged right and the public is fed a steady diet of the same message.

    Once a government decides on something, it takes an enormous amount of effort and evidence to change its policy. The same can be said for the public. When in doubt, most people will go along with the government. The public surrenders its right to educated themselves on a topic. Perhaps they don’t see how it impacts them, or they just aren’t interested.

    We live in the day of information. We will refer to our society as the time before the internet and the time after the internet. However, even with access to the internet, we still have human rights being violated in many countries. Our government wags its finger at another government in front of the cameras and then signs billion dollar deals. We say we are concerned about the planet but we still buy plastic water bottles.

    When you say Medical Marijuana to someone, almost everyone rolls their eyes or smirks. These same people see the distinction between the medical uses of morphine and the devastation caused by its recreational use.

    Any change in society’s opinion of medical marijuana will only happen by open and frank discussion. People need to understand, medical marijuana is a valid option to mainstream medicine that has been used for thousands of years.
