    How can marijuana be legal for medicable purposes at the same time be federally illegal nationwide?

    This paradox is weird for me to accept. Can America make up their minds on this issue?

    Easily. It is legal by the state. However, the federal government has it illegal. The federal government must respect the state's wishes. Even so, the federal government has more authority and disagrees with the laws. It is not a clear road and there are plenty of issues in the matter. And no, America cannot.

      Iburmaster, I'm still confused. This issue may just have too many ramifications to choose, either for or against. Thanks for the comment.

    It's as simple as this. The Federal Government is still searching for a way to tax marijuana. Whereas the state has already found a way through medicinal purposes. I agree its weird. America, "the land that I love" smile is GREEDY. So on this subject (and many others), America won't ever be able to make up it's mind. All just my opinion but, Great Question!

      thanks dnd, I agree some aspects of the hesitation to legalize marijuana is from taxation. Some things you might not be able to tax. Being willing to lock people up and preventing employment is becoming a problem far worse than over taxing.

    it's because people have been brainwashed into believing it is like herion or other hard drugs. people are basically ignorant to facts , so they will listen to what others tell them if it goes with what they were told before. i know people who still think smoking marijuana makes people crazy.

      good view nightwork4, I agree the media and journalistic integrity is dumbing down America. The main contributing factor I think is incarceration which  becomes more lucrative than legalizing pot.
