Is it hostility, desperation or ignorance that would lead people to espouse this kind of theory about the devastating effects of medical marijuana on society, I wondered when I saw this post on the Kevin MD blog: Medical Marijuana and College Students.

What does this kind of recreational abuse argument have to do with patients whose pain can be better controlled by access to medical marijuana? They shouldn't have it because some people might misuse it? How is this any different than any other pain medication? They are all abused by someone. This line of thinking seems to try to impose an argument against legalization generally on medical marijuana. It doesn't fit.
