In the past few years ideas and opinions of marijuana have drastically changed, however Marijuana Rehab and Treatment Centers in Oklahoma still believe that marijuana is addictive and dangerous. They are willing to help those who have heavy marijuana use, but do not always offer successful results. As of 2013 Senator Connie Johnson became fighting for medical marijuana use in Oklahoma. While many agree the legalizing marijuana or "pot" in Oklahoma is not wise, others much like Senator Johnson believe it will be a benefit to the many Oklahoma citizens who are suffering from endless chronic pain. Medical Marijuana has become a hot debate since 2010 and in 2013 it became legal to carry 1-ounce of marijuana for recreational use in Colorado and Washington state for anyone ages 21 and older. The fight will continue for the legalization of medical marijuana thought-out the US.
