Roman Catholic Cardinal Norberto Rivera says that the church has no problem with the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes.

The cardinal who also serves as the archbishop of Mexico City said Sunday that the church has never had a problem recommending the use of "all elements from nature that can be used to help improve health." He recalled that when he was a child the plant was commonly used for health reasons such as relieving pain.

Rivera was asked about his views on the medicinal use of marijuana at a news conference.
