Also, I cannot stress enough that your "cognitive performance" assertion has never once been proven. Like I said, it only does this when using it. If she smokes at night time, she wakes up untouched by the side effects(in a cognitive performance sense), believe it or not she will perform as well as she can, even after smoking the night before.
Furthermore, the effectiveness of this medicine enables her to enjoy her life, and live pain free, which in turn allows her to work on school. Although you claim that there are other medicines that are as effective/more effective, I can only point out how they are not natural, are not as safe, they do not immediately alleviate the symptoms, they have serious negative side effects, they actually make her way more impaired than marijuana, and are much more costly.
But yeah, she should be forced to choose between her happiness, safety, and education?
Look, I'm skepticalhippo about the legitimacy of cannabis use in this case, but let's assume that there is a real need for it. From your vague posts, I'm thinking it's being used for chronic pain? Yes, this may be a condition that would warrant the use of cannabis, and it is arguably safer and has less side effects than opiate pain medication. However, if your pain is significant enough that it requires 2-3 grams a day, should you really be considering law school? It's not undergrad, and you'll be at a significant handicap compared to your peers against whom you'll be graded on a curve.
Also, if it's being used for chronic pain, how is the person only going to use it in the evenings? It would seem that that would require their pain to go untreated during the day.
