Why It Is Important to Legalize Cannabis for Medical Consumption

Cannabis can improve quality of life for many individuals.
“Cannabis” often refereed as marijuana, weed or grass originates from the plant known as cannabis sativa.

Though the FDA classifies cannabis as schedule I, (A schedule I drug is a dangerous substance that has no recognized medical use and that has a high potential for abuse) recent studies suggest that components derived from cannabis have a great use as medicine, especially in fatal diseases like cancer and AIDS. This initiated a wide range of debate about legalizing cannabis for medical consumption in different states of the United States including New York.

The utilization of this plant for treatment purposes can be traced back to ancient times when it was prescribed for digestive issues, trauma help, and even mental issues. Before going to the facts on why cannabis should be legalized, let’s take a glimpse at a few health benefits of cannabis.
