You may have read studies or heard friends discussing the merits of medical marijuana. You may also have your own experiences with recreational pot and wonder how it is any different from the social use of alcohol. While you may have valid arguments for using marijuana medically or recreationally, the fact remains that growing, possessing and using marijuana is still illegal in Tennessee.
While you may be among the many who were disappointed when Tennessee lawmakers withdrew the measure to legalize medical marijuana, the hope remains that the state will soon allow those suffering from certain ailments to find relief through the use of cannabis oil and other marijuana products. Until such measures pass, the state remains one of about 20 states that have not removed criminal penalties from the use of marijuana.
