Overview Of Medicinal Marijuana

Brief description of marijuana as medicine, by johnnyblaze2316.



Cannabis contains many cannabinoid profiles that have a broad spectrum of use in the treatment and relief of diseases and ailments ranging from cancer to headaches. Cannabis has been used for medicinal purposes for over 4,000 years. in the united states medical cannabis or cannabis in general remains illegal under federal law, although currently their are 15 states which allow medicinal cannabis on the state level. this has caused tension and hardships on the medicinal cannabis community in the form of harrassment, cannabis club raids and persecution of personal cultivators. the 15 states which allow and regulate medicinal cannabis are Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Maine, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington , A bill currently in the New Jersey senate would legalize medical use of marijuana and is expected to pass. cannabis was listed in the unites states pharmacopia until 1942. the united states government denies any claim that cannabis is theraputic, yet there are seven patients recieving medicinal cannabis from the federal government through the Compassionate Investigational New Drug program, which is no longer accepting applications as of 1991. The federal food and drug administration has approved several synthetic medications which include marinol and cesamet. althoug these are legal and can be prescribed by a mainstream doctor, patient reviews are less than flattering and side effects are common. canada released a cannabis extract which is sprayed under the tongue and this seems more promising compared to synthetics. the scientific information for cannabis is just not there like it is for other medications but that is quickly changing.
