Recent research finds a possible link between marijuana and weight control. We've heard about the use of medical marijuana use for years, but this is the first we've heard of the potential use of marijuana as an obesity remedy. The day may come that we have a nationwide vote concerning the legalization of marijuana. How would you vote?


The use of marijuana to treat various health conditions is a controversial issue, even though 18 states plus the District of Columbia have recognized medical marijuana (cannabis). The list of medical conditions for which marijuana has demonstrated some benefit may have a new addition soon, because researchers have discovered compounds in marijuana that could help in the management of metabolic diseases such as type 2 diabetes. In a secret location in southern England, scientists with GW Pharmaceuticals are growing marijuana plants that have been bred to produce different amounts of cannabinoids, which are naturally found in the plants. Cannabinoids are chemicals that activate cannabinoid receptors in the body, which in turn may have an impact on gastrointestinal and cardiovascular activity, pain, and bone.

If you were able to vote on the legalization of marijuana, how would you vote?
