The button presumably supports a politician named Dean who is in favor of the legalization of medical marijuana. Marijuana (cannabis) and its unique cannabinoids, though not rigorously scientifically tested, have been shown in some studies to effectively treat chronic pain, reduce chemotherapy-induced nausea, and positively effect a host of neurological problems. As of 2015, cannabis has been legalized for medical use in 23 states in the United States and in Washington, D.C. Despite the fact that cannabinoids are technically illegal on a federal level due to the 1970 Controlled Substances Act, on December 16, 2014, the Obama Administration and Congress “quietly” decriminalized medical marijuana via an earmark in a spending bill.
