Medical Marijuana

The debate has gone on for years, it one that will more than likely continue for many more years to come. Since 1996 eleven states have legalized the use of medical marijuana and between 1978 and 1997 thirty-five states have recognized the value of medical marijuana. Some people believe that the use of medical marijuana will cause an increase of marijuana use by the general population. There have been numerous studies to determine the benefits of medical marijuana and to also see if it has any diverse affects on the patient.


While studies are as controversial as the debate itself a lot has been discovered about this form of treatment for certain illnesses and chronic symptoms. Cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy are one group of patients that have been shown to benefit from medical marijuana use. By using the drug it helps ease vomiting and nausea. Medical marijuana also has been shown to increase appetite in the patients which helps them to maintain a healthy weight while undergoing treatment. It also offers some degree of pain relief. Another area that has been researched is the use of medical marijuana for anxiety and depression patients.

Marijuana has been used for medicinal purposes for centuries and is also used for pain management for multiple sclerosis, increase appetite in AIDS patients and also to treat epilepsy and stroke. The medical marijuana debate will be around for generations. More states will approve it for medical purposes, the government may accept it, but the debate will always be present in our society. This article is in no way a promotion for marijuana; do not begin using any illegal substance unless you are explicitly directed to do so by your health care provider. If you suffer from a chronic illness such as cancer or AIDS you may choose to discuss your options with your physician.
