Will medical marijuana be free under Medicare for all?

Medical marijuana will of course be free under Medicare for all. It’s a shame that we’ve become accustomed to the government depriving people of medicine for so long that we even have to answer this question. Marijuana is just as important for people who need it as insulin is to a diabetic patient.
Of course, in order to prevent people abusing the system, you will have to have a legitimate illness to receive marijuana for free. Anything that currently qualifies will qualify under Medicare for all too. Chronic pain, itchy back, and excessively sweaty feet will all continue to qualify. Of course, since we wouldn’t want to deprive anyone of important medications, our proposal makes marijuana an over the counter drug. Simply tell your local pharmacist that you have an issue and they will give you an appropriate dose at no charge.
