There is much debate as to whether medial marijuana should be legalized in the USA.
Some US patients who require medical marijuana for their treatment have been forced to move to a legal medical marijuana state, to avoid getting into trouble with the police. To make it more complex, in the past the federal government have arrested medical marijuana suppliers in legal medical marijuana states.
Obama has asked the federal government not to prosecute people using or supplying medical marijuana, in the states where medical marijuana is legal.
According to the US government there are 14 states where medical marijuana is legal. In reality there are 13 states as Maryland only have reduced penalties for medical marijuana usage.
These are the legal medical marijuana states:
Alaska, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Maine, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont and Washington.
Where is it legal to use medical marijuana outside of the USA?
