They want to get high. It's an easy way to circumvent federal law.

In brief: Good and bad

It's a controversial question, and you may get different answers.
Here in calif, it's easy to get a "marijuana card" for any real or imagined complaint. Many swear it helps a variety of symptoms, but it's clearly a means to recreational use too. Smoking or eating the actual plant includes more substances than a thc pill, and the effects differ based on the specific strain and type.
