Marijuana Legalization is a hot issue among different nations including US where almost 81% of population is supporting it. Many physicians have rated marijuana safer than alcohol and cigarettes,Improving Million Lives by Marijuana Legalization Articles and have established the medical benefits of medical marijuana. Let us look as to how this wonder drug can improve million lives.

Professor Raphael Mechoulam isolated the primary psychoactive compound in marijuana called as THC in 1964. Since then many scientists are working in this field to evaluate the benefits of marijuana to alleviate the condition of patients suffering from debilitating diseases. Many people believe that smoking marijuana can destroy lungs and cause cancer just like cigarette smoking, but the truth is not as it has been stated.

Very long-term and excessive smoking of marijuana does release some carcinogenic elements but some cannabinoids have been proved to have anticancer properties. It considerably slows down tumor growth in breasts, lungs, and brain and reduces neuropathic pain. THC is also used for the prevention of nausea and vomiting during cancer chemotherapy, and for appetite improvement. Medical marijuana is used to treat post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) patients. Marijuana use has improved the lives of countless people suffering from seizures. Due to its antispasmodic qualities, severe seizure and multiple sclerosis patients have been able to carry out their day-to-day work. Marijuana has also been successful in treating migraines, anorexia, arthritis, and cachexia.

Medical marijuana can be used to treat many chronic diseases like glaucoma, Alzheimer’s, Crohn’s and treat weight loss associated with AIDS. Parkinson patients and those suffering from Tourette syndrome and OCD have been benefitted from marijuana use. It is excellent for pain management in premenstrual syndrome symptoms. All these patients and many other are deriving benefits of marijuana available in nature. In the legalized states, these patients have to get themselves registered at the respective registry centers, and they can obtain it in limited and lawful doses as prescribed by their physicians.

After marijuana legalization in 17 US states, new doors have been opened not only in medical field but also for subsidiary medical marijuana businesses. Medical marijuana industry is an emerging industry that can give huge profits to its investors. Hemp is utilized in various industries like automobile, paper, clothing, and rope, in an eco-friendly manner, and medical marijuana can reduce healthcare cost. If the political barrier is uplifted and marijuana legalized or maybe taxed, it will help improve not only the country’s economy and environment but also lives of commoners.
