Examining the Myths and Misconceptions of Medical Marijuana

 

 

With statistics showing that stress, depression, anxiety and fear are fast becoming a major global problem, more and more people are turning to medical marijuana to help lift their low moods, calm chronic tension, ameliorate withdrawal symptoms, and ease their physical, mental, and emotional pain. 

But how effective is medical marijuana really?  And, perhaps more importantly, how safe? 

While marijuana is the most commonly used drug of abuse in the USA, 26 states and the District of Columbia have now enacted laws that have legalized its use in some form, and three additional states have passed measures permitting the use of medical marijuana.

Dr. Rasean Hodge and Nick McCauley  unravel some of
the many misconceptions
and myths about cannabis in general, and the question of medical marijuana being a safer alternative to opiates
and NSAIDs in treating PTS, depression, anxiety, addiction, mental health issues, and pain.
