Marijuana also known as Cannabis is known for its physical and mental effects that heightens your mood that is very addictive if not regulated. Day by day there has been a lot of new illnesses that are created due to the fast paced development of the world, thus medical advances such as finding alternative treatments to these new illnesses should not be hindered due to the risks involved. In the case of Medical Marijuana, there is a huge risk of using it recreationally but the government should also weigh the benefits of Marijuana in order to continue medical research in finding alternative treatments to different types of illnesses. Recent studies show that marijuana has medical use, especially with the testimonials of all those who use marijuana in medical purposes in states where it is allowed to be prescribed. And with these, we made a stand that Marijuana could actually save lives if used responsibly. I believe that marijuana has the capacity to treat wide varieties of illnesses because under the green leaf of cannabis, it hides something that serves as a way to benefit a lot of people due to its cost efficiency and the fact that it is affordable for the citizens.
There are wide varieties of illnesses that are said to be treatable by the use of medical Marijuana. Considering that medical marijuana is to be legalized, illnesses and conditions like HIV/AIDS, seizures, mental disorders as well as inflammation of body parts can be treated by the use of medical Marijuana. The legalization of medical marijuana would be a great platform in finding more alternative treatments to a wide variety of illnesses, which would mean that other than the benefits that medicinal Marijuana can already provide, there is more potential to it when it comes to its benefits.
Medicinal Marijuana comes in variety of forms. Unlike other medicinal products, it can be manufactured into such forms as to cater the needs of those needing treatment. It can be used to smoke as it delivers instant relief and is very cheap but smoke may be harmful to the lungs. It can be vaporized as it can also deliver instant relief and is less harsher to the lungs than smoking but vaping units can be very expensive. Consumed and added to edibles as culinary science made it possible to do so, consuming medicinal Marijuana edibles can provide long-lasting relief and is a good alternative for people averse to in haling and the dosage can be very precise, but it can take an amount of time before kicking in and it will be difficult for the manufacturer to produce such accurate dosage which means that it will be expensive. Transdermal Patches are also a product of the wide variety of forms of Medicinal Marijuana, these patches means that no smoking is required as it will only be applied to the skin however some individuals may develop allergic reactions. All of these have different effects on the body as to accommodate the different demands of the different treatments of illnesses, this justifies the fact that Medicinal Marijuana has the potential to treat more people in whatever illnesses that they may have.
Production of Medical Marijuana is cost efficient. It is said to be that growing marijuana would actually help the environment as growing medical marijuana would not require the use of fertilizers and pesticides. Legalizing Medicinal Marijuana would also mean that marijuana farms locally would easily boost the production thus lessening the prices of medicinal Marijuana.
All the scientific evidences and studies that are made on the benefits of medical Marijuana actually compensates the huge risks involved in legalizing Medicinal Marijuana. This would also mean that the risk of excessively using medicinal Marijuana would actually be lessened and its legalization would lead in the development and research on the other potential use of medical Marijuana.
Despite all of these, the real question remains. How far will we be able to push the boundaries of different cultures in order to have a compromise on this matter?
