According to National Bureau of Economic Research, As of June 2014 there are 23 states in the United States had legalized the use of marijuana on a prescription basis. This is in response to growing evidence that the active ingredient in the drug may be useful in curing some diseases. Medical marijuana uses the cannabis plant to treat diseases or conditions. It is essentially the same product as recreational marijuana, but it's used for medical purposes. It stands that the use of medical marijuana should be legalized but for medical use only. Legalizing marijuana has been quite debated and I believe that marijuana has definite benefits in medical field. I agree on the legalization of marijuana for medical use considering its benefits in the medical field. I have three reason on why did I agree on this. First, it reduces the use of prescription drugs. Studies revealed that patients who used marijuana for medical purposes felt better overall and that medical cannabis has fewer side effects than painkillers. According to recent studies, the increased use of medical marijuana has had a substitute impact on the use of prescription drugs. In several cross-sectional surveys conducted in the United States and Canada, users of marijuana reported substituting cannabis for prescription drugs, the most common of which are opioid, anti-depressant, and anxiolytic drugs. Second, Legalization has not led to increased use. There are some critics that the marijuana legalization could result in increased use, particularly among minors. However, due to effective regulation and education, legalization has had the opposite effect. In states like Colorado, for example, the percentage of teenagers who use cannabis has been slowly dropping since the drug was legalized. Furthermore, marijuana use in states where it is legal has not risen above the national average. In Florida, cannabis can only be obtained for medical purposes if you have one of the qualifying conditions. Even if they are eligible, they must first spend some time seeing a state-licensed doctor for medical marijuana so the doctor can assess whether they actually needed it. And lastly, it has many contributions in medical field. There are common understandings that marijuana has negative effects on human health which we cannot deny the fact that it is true, but the thing is how the plant is used and under what conditions are essential for its potential health benefits. It has been used successfully by conventional medical professionals in California and Florida to treat conditions like AIDS, arthritis, anorexia, and even cancer. According to studies, marijuana can be used to treat anxiety, bipolar disorder, insomnia, depression, and other conditions. The World Health Organization (WHO) also stated that several scientific studies support the claim that cannabis consumption can help with pain and nausea relief. Cannabis has also been shown to effectively treat multiple sclerosis and epilepsy symptoms. This study has shown that it is clear from the discussion above that there are enormous advantages to legalizing medical marijuana. Reducing the use of prescription, Legalization of marijuana may not lead in increased use and its contributions in medical field emerged as a reliable benefits of legalizing marijuana for medical use. According to these benefits we can infer that marijuana should be legalized for medical use only. We must not think of it as dangerous instead let us considering helping the economy develop, saving several persons suffering from chronic illnesses and from opiate overdose. Marijuana should therefore be allowed everywhere, so that we can benefit from any advantages that nature may have to offer.
