The question of jurisprudence in the use of marijuana
Currently, sick people are being arrested and punished for using medical cannabis when the purpose of law in any democratic country is first and foremost to protect members of its society from harm. Common law (also known as case law or precedent) originated in England in the Middle Ages, and it is implemented in most former colonies of the British Empire, including the United States of America and Canada. English law still provides the basis for many American legal traditions and policies, although it has no superseding jurisdiction. The essence of English common law is that it is upheld by judges sitting in courts, applying common sense and their knowledge of legal precedent to the facts of the case before them. The laws in place should be fair, just, and reasonable, with any punishments proportionate to the given crime and based on sensible decisions made by compassionate judges.
In fact, the prohibition of the use of cannabis is illegal
Individuals needing to use cannabis to cure illness are some of the most vulnerable in society and the very people that the law was designed to protect. The prohibition of cannabis can in no way be considered fair, just, or reasonable. The system of law designed to protect the weakest in society was and still is, being manipulated by powerful individuals with a purely commercial agenda. Every argument that was put forward to ensure cannabis became illegal has been proven to be false and fraudulent. In essence, the prohibition of cannabis was a corrupt venture, and therefore an illegal undertaking. Furthermore, any person or persons who continue to sustain the criminalization of cannabis are themselves party to this very same corrupt and illegal act.
