Students at Boston University on Legalizing Medical Marijuana
On November 6, Massachusetts' residents will vote on a ballot initiative that would legalize medical marijuana. The measure would allow people with glaucoma and chronic illnesses that cause severe pain to buy marijuana with a doctor's written recommendation, at designated dispensaries.
With the election just weeks away, this week's "YouSpeak" asked Boston University students: Should medical marijuana be legalized?
Every student said yes, although many qualified their answers to include a well-regulated system with good oversight. This is obviously a small sample of the student body at BU, but you’ll notice not one person said, “oh no, we can’t have that, it will send the wrong message to kids, there is already medicine on the market for these ailments,” etc.
Younger generations don’t look at medical marijuana as something that is evil, but as something that can be very helpful if it’s done right. The stigma attached to marijuana, even medicinal marijuana, is recognized mainly by those who were born before the hippie generation that came of age in the 1960’s. Those born after don’t see a stigma, they tend to see more of an opportunity to be compassionate.
It’s up to the younger generations to vote.
