More than 70% of the population of our country has mental health issues.
Some of these mental health issues include anxiety, depression, and PTSD.
Medical marijuana is a great way to deal with these mental health issues, and you don’t have to take a pill every day. Unfortunately, medical marijuana is still illegal in some of the states. Only half of the states in our country have legalized medical marijuana. There are several states considering legalizing medical marijuana at this time, but as of today, only 30 states have legalized marijuana for use as a treatment option. Medical marijuana has a lot of medical benefits. These medical benefits can treat a variety of conditions like pain, muscle spasms, or cancer. Cannabinoids are the active part of medical marijuana. Many years of research easily suggests that cannabinoids can kill cancer cells, reduce inflammation, and also control vomiting in cancer patients. Still, a number of our states still do not recognize the medical benefits of marijuana. When my wife was diagnosed with cancer, we decided to move to a different state that has legal medical marijuana. I knew that my wife would benefit from ingesting medical marijuana, but we didn’t want to be wary of the legalities. After moving to Colorado last spring, my wife can legally manage the cancer side effects with medical marijuana. Medical marijuana has changed our lives and given my wife some hope. I don’t know why the government hasn’t recognized it legally in all fifty states, but I hope that comes soon. There are thousands of people who could benefit from the plants healing properties.
