Recreational use of marijuana is strictly prohibited, yet the use of cannabis for medicinal purposes is made legal in certain countries such as Canada, Austria, Germany, and Italy.

Dickson, ACT -- (ReleaseWire) -- 03/16/2015 -- The bill of legalizing the use of medical marijuana in 13 states including Florida, Georgia, Missouri, Kansas and Kentucky has yet stirred the attention of the public as various questions have arisen whether it is necessary to pass such bill or not. The interest of some legislators to pass the law that allows health specialist to administer and prescribe medical marijuana to patients came from the fact that medical cannabis has been in use for medicinal purposes by many people across various cultures thousands of years ago. Yet, the American Academy of Pediatrics believes that, even though, the cannabinoids found in marijuana is a potential therapy for patients, the use of it is still not recommendable until further research is done.

Cannabis is known to reduce nausea and vomiting in patients undergoing chemotherapy while people with HIV/AIDS use the medical marijuana in treating pain and muscle spasticity. Though it is widely used in some health conditions caused by certain diseases, there's an insufficiency in the data to support its safety and efficacy in treating diseases. According to many health experts, the use of medical marijuana in a short term could increase minor adverse effects while the long term effect of medical marijuana is still not clear. In addition, it is known to have safety concerns that need to be justified including memory and cognition problems, risk of dependence, and the dangers that children may be exposed to them.

However, medical marijuana advocates strongly believe that with the use of cannabis in patients, it could help in alleviating the pain and symptoms as experienced by patients that are terminally and chronically ill. But certain problems could be encountered if medical marijuana use will be legalized in regards to growing the plants. According to Brian McConnell, the advocacy group president of Families and Friends for Drug Law Reform in Australia, some people do not know how to grow the cannabis successfully nor get an access to the seeds. And instead of totally banning the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes, the supply to the patients should be under the strict management of registered growers and importers of medical marijuana and other related products. In that way, the use medicinal marijuana will be tightly regulated by the authorities and the health care providers, for the reason that, if the authorities did not make a move in regards to medical marijuana use, people will still use it because it provides them the relief they need from their illnesses.

As of now, people consume medical marijuana in various methods that includes vaporizing or passing of smoke through water to reduce various toxins that should not be inhaled, that is made available on various bongs online store; eating extracts that are infused in some foods and beverages now being offered in selective restaurants, taking capsules that can be bought in the market with a doctor's prescription or using oral sprays. But recreational use of marijuana is strictly prohibited, yet the use of cannabis for medicinal purposes is made legal in certain countries such as Canada, Austria, Germany, and Italy.
