6. Multiple Sclerosis:Marijuana’s effects on multiple sclerosis patients became better documented when former talk-show host, Montel Williams began to use pot to treat his MS. Marijuana works to stop the neurological effects and muscle spasms that come from the fatal disease.

7. ADD and ADHD: A well documented USC study done about a year ago showed that marijuana is not only a perfect alternative for Ritalin but treats the disorder without any of the negative side effects of the pharmaceutical.

8. IBS and Crohn’s Marijuana has shown that it can help with symptoms of the chronic diseases as it stops nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea.

9. Alzheimer’s Despite what you may have heard about marijuana’s effects on the brain, the Scripps Institute, in 2006, proved that the THC found in marijuana works to prevent Alzheimer’s by blocking the deposits in the brain that cause the disease.

10. Premenstrual Syndrome Just like marijuana is used to treat IBS, it can be used to treat

1. Cancer:Cannabinoids, the active components of marijuana, inhibit tumor growth in laboratory animals and also kill cancer cells.

2. Tourette’s Syndrome:A single dose of the cannabinol produced a significant reduction in symptoms for several hours compared to placebo, the researchers reported.

3. Seizures:Marijuana is a muscle relaxant and has “antispasmodic” qualities that have proven to be a very effective treatment for seizures.

4. Migraines:Since medicinal marijuana was legalized in California, doctors have reported that they have been able to treat more than 300,000 cases of migraines that conventional medicine couldn’t through marijuana.

5. Glaucoma:Marijuana’s treatment of glaucoma has been one of the best documented. There isn’t a single valid study that exists that disproves marijuana’s very powerful and popular effects on glaucoma patients.

@help4addicts before i smoked pot, i smoked cigs. we should blame cigarettes for me smoking marijuana. heck, lets just blame every bad decision i have ever made on the fact that when i was a child, i tasted my dad's beer. and ever since then, that beer has made me do terrible things. i wonder how long until i too become a hero!n/meth addict. nice analogy. i'm glad that whatever addiction program you have gone through has taught you to blame others/things for your problems.

I'm against all drug use unless it's prescribed by an authorized medical professional but, that said, I wish our country would have ONE law for the entire United States. If growing and possessing marijuana is legal in Colorado and California (and I don't keep up, but maybe other states as well) why isn't it legal in all states? Are we the UNITED states or what? This and other laws should be national. I have always believed that driver licenses should be the same. I can drive from one coast to another in the same car, but if I move permanently to another state, then I need to relicense my car and myself. Just a way to get more money - my car and I don't change.

Just because pot seems less dangerous than meth and h3roin doesn't make it so. People who end up using these hard drugs don't start right off with them. They reach a point through the use of "harmless" pot that these other options appeal to them. I know from first hand experience that I started doing drugs by smoking pot and it progressed to ****** and a prison sentence.

Pot isn't that bad. It makes you happy hungry sleepy. You don't have to add chemicals to it, to make it. This world need's to be growing pot.

The "War on Drugs" is an unwinnable effort. Look at the time and effort that goes into policing this and then look at the amount of money it would cost for all of us to have healthcare. Yes, some of our law enforcement people wouldn't have jobs in law enforcement, but they could have jobs in healthcare as could so many others. If we focused our dollars and energy toward preventing mental and physical illness, instead of trying to deal with the aftermath of poor care, our country would be a better place. We have the opportunity to do this.

They should leave the pot alone and focus all resources on the Meth and H_____ problem in the area!
