Medical marijuana

Woa! Wait a minute. Marijuana, you are talking about marijuana the drug? Are you serious?

Well, yes, I'm talking about marijuana the drug and yes, I'm serious.

I would not be surprised if I received many responses like this when talking about marijuana. The general perception is that marijuana is all about drug abuse and drug addicts. Well, do you know that when cocaine was "discovered" by doctors, it was meant for good to relieve the pain and suffering of patients. However, improper usage and lack of regulatory laws caused it to be misused by the public and thus the problem of drug addicts. Now, doctors and health practitioners are using the so called "drugs" to treat patients in a prescribed way that is beneficial to their health. Medical conditions like cancer, glaucoma, HIV/AIDS positive, cachexia, severe pain, severe nausea and seizures can be treated with marijuana. No, in most cases it would not heal it totally but marijuana helps to alleviate those debilitation medical conditions. If you think that you can benefit from the proper use of marijuana, consult your doctors or check out Medical Marijuana Colorado and see whether your health conditions requires such usage.

Marijuana is not evil but the misused of it leads to many evils.
