Meanwhile the clinical studies discussed below have taken a deeper look as to why cannabis is a medication worth legalizing.
According to clinical studies the chemical compounds found in cannabis (CBD and THC) can successfully treat chronic pain and many other health ailments.
This was evidenced in the largest ever study on cannabis which examined over 10,000 studies on the drug.
The results found that, not only is cannabis an effective defense to chronic pain but also a wide range of other health problems such as: muscles spasms in those suffering from multiple sclerosis – nausea in those undergoing chemotherapy – inflammation – arthritis – fibromyalgia – anxiety – stress and PTSD.
Additionally medical marijuana has been proven to lower opioid prescriptions and opioid-related deaths.
Coinciding with this evidence – states that have legalized medical marijuana suffer from fewer opioid-related deaths.
Also profits to organized crime groups would be cut off by legalizing cannabis.
