Medical Marijuana

Marijuana, or cannabis, as it is more appropriately called, has been part of humanity's medicine chest for almost as long as history has been recorded.

Of all the negative consequences of marijuana prohibition, none is as tragic as the denial of medicinal cannabis to the tens of thousands of patients whom could benefit from its healing properties.

Scarce modern research suggests that cannabis is a valuable aid in the treatment of a variety of medicinal applications. These include pain relief, particularly of neuropathic pain (pain from nerve damage), nausea, spasticity, glaucoma, and movement disorders associated with the joints and muscles. Marijuana is also a powerful appetite stimulant, specifically for patients suffering from HIV/ AIDS or dementia. Forth coming research suggests that marijuana's healing properties may help protect the body against many types of malignant tumors and are neuroprotective.

At this time, more than 60 U.S. and international health organizations support granting patients immediate legal access to medicinal marijuana under a physician's supervision.
