There are quite a myths associated with the usage of medical marijuana. Here are a few of them:
1. Marijuana is hard on your immune system: Many people believe that medical marijuana is not good for health at all. They tend to compare it with other kinds of drugs available in the market. However, they fail to realize that if the drug was not safe, would the state governments allow and promote its usage for medical benefits. Would the doctors ever prescribe it as a medicine? I guess not. Thus, you must not think about this issue ever.
2. There are no real medicinal benefits associated with the drug: Quite frankly, it is not so. Medical marijuana is widely used for treating patients of cancer, AIDS, HIV, rheumatoid arthritis, ADHD and many more diseases that you can think of. It is also known to relieve pain and cure depression. Thus, it is an ideal drug for a number of medical purposes.
3. Medical marijuana is abused: There are many drugs and pills that are available over the counter and all of these are widely abused by people. Does it mean that the government should ban its sale? I guess not. So is true with medical marijuana.
