Medical marijuana has been proven in numerous studies to be a viable treatment for many medical conditions. Yet, it is one drug that has had a difficult time being approved for medical use around the world. There have been far more scientific studies, clinical trials and other data that has proven medical marijuana works as an anti-cancer medication, an anti-inflammatory, it is able to help shrink tumors, stop nausea, and reduce pain and other disease symptoms.
The use of medical marijuana has not been approved in many states in the United States, but other drugs with less testing and severe side effects have been approved to treat conditions that marijuana could treat without the side effects. While the battle continues whether to legalize marijuana for medical use, the largest thing that is forgotten is the science proving that medical marijuana is not addicting like other medications, it does work effectively and without side effects.
