According to studies performed by the Office of Applied Studies, National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 2003 and 2004, the total number of people ages 12 and older in the state of Mississippi who used marijuana in the past year is 185,000.

Mississippi's Senator is currently trying to legalize medical marijuana use. The bill has been turned down for the fifth straight year. She states that there are medical studies that prove therapeutic benefits for those who suffer from terminal illnesses such as cancer, HIV, AIDS, multiple sclerosis and glaucoma. The University of Mississippi legally grows it for the federal government and then is shipped out to other states where it's legal for patients but what she does not understand is why they won't provide this medicine for their own people in Mississippi who are terminally ill.
