Although 28 states have medical cannabis laws, most physicians are reluctant to discuss how this plant may be beneficial to health. Over 4 million people in the U.S. are healing difficult-to-treat illnesses with cannabis medicine. This book is an educational tool for patients and their loved ones who have not found answers with conventional medicines.As medical cannabis laws continue to evolve, it is more vital than ever for patients suffering from life-changing medical conditions to understand the benefits of this plant in an honest, medicine-based perspective. Educational, practical and comprehensive,This book examines those cases and the reefer madness campaign of the 1930’s, Nixon’s war on drugs, the United Nations efforts to impose world-wide prohibition, dagga smoking in 19th century South Africa, the Yarkand charas trade and the Indian Hemp Commission of 1893. It also considers studies carried out by the U.S military in the Panama Canal Zone, the Shafer Commission, the Le Dain Commission and the Baroness Wooten report of 1968. It also explores the latest medical research, investigating its use as an effective treatment for a wide variety of illnesses, as well as the dangers associated with specialised strains of skunk. It begins where it should, acknowledging its social and spiritual roots in India, where it has been used for thousands of years, as well as its role in Jamaica, where it has been adopted by those who follow the Rastafari faith. There is no doubt that this remarkable plant has an important role to play in 21st century medicine, our only challenge is to find even more ways to use it, and to insist that governments allow us to do so.
