Marijuana as Medicine dates back as far as the days when Jesus was a cultivator. Cannabis has been used for more than 10,000 years for recreational and as marijuana medicine (mmj). Medical Marijuana (MMJ) has been used to help with glaucoma, muscle spasticity (multiple sclerosis), movement disorders (huntington’s disease), and a variety of pain syndromes. Marijuana reduces nausea and vomiting and enhances appetite, so it helps people with AIDS and opposes the side effects of cancer chemotherapy. It also prevents the death of injured neurons. And most common, it alleviates anxiety and depression. Marijuana and Schizophrenia have been linked together for many years now. Some doctors say medical marijuana helps control Schizophrenia, while other physicians say the opposite, that it causes people to develop Schizophrenia.
