Description
It has been widely documented that the use of marijuana has been used to help with seizures, pain, and nausea from several diseases. The FDA is yet to recognize the marijuana plant as medicine simply because not enough clinical trials support it as a finding. However, according to the National Institute of Health, two FDA-approved medications that contain cannabinoid chemicals are available in pill form. This relevant volume examines how various forms of marijuana have been used throughout history to treat illnesses, how marijuana works to heal various ailments in the present day, and dissects the pros and cons of legalizing marijuana for medicinal purposes.
