As an initiative to allow medical marijuana in Mississippi gains traction, the state’s governor is speaking out on social media against the issue, causing many to respond. In the post, the governor says he will vote ‘no’ if medical marijuana makes it onto the ballot. The governor doesn’t give an exact reason for his opposition, saying only, “With all the pharmaceutical advancements we have seen, it would seem strange to bring pot into the equation.” Some doctors who advocate using marijuana to treat certain conditions like cancer and epilepsy say that patients respond differently to prescribed drugs. It’s a point many made in the comments section of Bryant’s post. Many people told personal stories, commenting that marijuana could help a child’s epilepsy, cancer, and severe arthritis in the elderly. Others added that it could also help veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder. Medical marijuana stirs social media debate on governor’s page
