The medical value of marihuana has become increasingly clear to many physicians and patients There are three reasons for this First it is remarkably non-toxic Unlike most of the medicines in the present pharmacopoeia it has never caused an overdose death Its short-term and long-term side effects are minimal compared to medicines for which it will be substituted Second once patients no longer have to pay the prohibition tariff it will be much less expensive than the medicines it replaces Third it is remarkably versatile Case histories and clinical experience suggest that it is useful in the treatment of more than two dozen symptoms and syndromes and others will undoubtedly be discovered in the future The reality that medical marijuana has assisted patients suffering from the symptoms of cancer AIDS multiple sclerosis and glaucoma can no longer be denied Some patients claim that the therapeutic uses of medical marijuana have even had more substantial affects than some pharmaceutical counterparts Psychological therapy using Cannabis is as old as mans association with it Cannabis is effective in substance withdrawal and various mental perturbations One way it works is by changing the mood of the user usually in a positive direction although it can cause paranoia and agitation in some cases Strain selection for psychological problems should hinge on whether the condition causes agitation and unrest or depression and angst and appropriate stimulating or sedative qualities should be chosen The central issue at the forefront of all these cases is this Does medical marijuana really have the medicinal properties many claim it does or is this a way for marijuana advocates using it without fear of criminal action In most instances patients who use medical marijuana even under a doctors approval are still considered to be using it illegally and face possible arrest or imprisonment Since the mid 1990s medical marijuana ballot initiatives have received a majority of votes in Alaska Arizona California Colorado the District of Columbia
