Legalising medical marijuana

For years controversy has surrounded the issue of marijuana being used for medicinal purposes despite it being quite similar to other medicines we currently use to treat a range of conditions. With the help of medical weed, patients with illnesses such as AIDs and various types of Cancer could see their suffering considerably lessened. However, many still view cannabis as a “dangerous street drug” and it is this conservative viewpoint that restricts its use.

Weed has been proved to have a highly therapeutic value, offering aid to treating symptoms such as lack of appetite, nausea, vomiting, pain and anxiety. This makes it extremely helpful to patients experiencing nausea as a result of chemotherapy and additionally helps AIDs patients at a critically low weight to increase their appetite.

In opposition to popular opinion, no recreational or medicinal user has ever experienced an overdose associated with cannabis. A small amount of users have however, become dependant on this substance, but its addictive properties are equal to that of many other drugs on the pharmaceutical market and considerably less addictive to other legal drugs such as nicotine and alcohol. In addition to this, marijuana does not offer the same painful and in some cases life threatening withdrawal symptoms that are associated with other drugs, morphine included.
