About Medical Marijuana
Medical marijuana is a controversial topic. Differing opinions among journalists, medical doctors, social activists, and legislators, have led to an overwhelming wealth of information in the media. Unfortunately, this means the people who stand to benefit most from the use of medical marijuana, those individuals who suffer from serious health conditions, are left to navigate the confusing new options without clear facts and evidence. In truth, numerous studies published in renowned, peer-reviewed medical journals such as Neurology, Rheumatology, Annals of Internal Medicine, the American Journal of Clinical Oncology, and the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology have all documented significant health benefits associated with the use of medicinal Cannabis across a wide range of ages, races, genders, and health conditions. The medicinal benefits of Cannabis are still being investigated and its scientifically proven indications continue to grow with the progression of research.
