"For some, there is no logical reason marijuana should be outlawed in most of the United States. Vic Chesnutt, a musician based in Athens, Georgia, is one of those people, and some might argue that he has good reason to feel the way he does.

Now paralyzed, he says that marijuana is the only drug in the world that gives him sensations in his lower extremities while allaying muscle spasms."--CNN
