The Status of Marijuana as a Medicine

There have been arguments on the idea of making marijuana, the candyland strain, a medicine to help the chronically and critically ill people, and that has continued to this since its first recognition as a possible medicinal plant. Unfortunately, the banning of marijuana as a medicine is due to politics and some pharmaceutical companies, not facts.

There has been proof in the medicinal properties of marijuana in terms of alleviating the conditions of people in the different stages and types of cancer. Marijuana helps the patient get better from the nausea after their chemotherapy, and even with the cancer itself. Aside from that, patients who have AIDS are greatly helped due to the ability of marijuana to increase their food appetite. Moreover, marijuana can help in the alleviation of anxiety, depression, muscle spasms, and chronic pain.

Marijuana is helpful according to the different researches done about its medicinal capability, and yet others do not recognize that in their disbelief. Some sectors of the society, like the pharmaceutical companies, would lose a lot of sales and impact if marijuana becomes legal. The typical idea majority of the people have on marijuana is a drug-addict needing it to get by. They would not associate it with a breast-cancer patient receiving some marijuana for relief from the pain and the sickness. Politicians take advantage of the people’s ignorance on marijuana, so they demonize the plant and make it look like some substance that would make the children get addicted to it, just to get more votes during the election. Because of the pharmaceutical industry’s fear of marijuana’s potential to provide a safe and cheap medicine for a lot of people, they would financially support people in the office who are against marijuana also.

Still, people wonder why one smokes or dabs marijuana as a medicine since a medically proven drug exists. By asking this, you are not improving anybody’s situation. There are also dangers in prescribed drugs, specially on their dosage that when prescribed wrongly can lead to a patient’s death. So basically prescribed drugs can lead to more chances of getting addicted and harmed on the part of the patient. Basically, these prescribed drugs are the equivalents of heroin, cocaine, and oxytocin. With all that has been said, the feasibility of marijuana to alleviate the suffering of those who are sick should at least make you believe. Marijuana works better than the prescribed synthetic medicines available in the market. Marijuana would eventually make medicine cost cheaper and more natural, in comparison to the prescribed drugs currently in the market. The argument on the medicinal feasibility of marijuana is not on its effectiveness but on the possible political and monetary losses some people would have once it becomes legal. People of power and influence should learn more and put more value on marijuana to help people get a safer form of medicine for their illnesses.
