Cannabis has been used for centuries to treat a wide range of medical and psychological conditions. It has been shown to be both safe and effective with an astonishing range of clinical applications.
In the 1930’s cannabis was included in twenty-eight prescription medications and had been used safely by thousands of patients.
Unfortunately by this time cannabis had become, in the minds of many, associated with recreational drug use. People in positions of power and political influence began campaigning for a ban on cannabis use. They chose to overlook the demonstrated medical benefits of cannabis, focusing only on what they perceived were its negative properties. In 1937 over the objection of the AMA congress passed the Marijuana Tax Act effectively outlawing the use or possession of cannabis in the United States.
Our Blog is a way to raise awareness about the healing power of Cannabis, its positive potential in the medical world, to encourage debate and discourse within the medical callergy about the use of Marijuana as Medicine and eventually to help patients seek an alternative in pain management and pain therapy.
