USA- October 11, 2016. There have been a lot of reasons put forward as to why marijuana should never be legalized in any country. This is not only in America but all over the world- except in Jamaica of course. Those people love their herb a bit too much. However, there is a good reason for that. As Maine goes to the polls in November, the fight to legalize marijuana is also taking on a stronger stance.

Marijuana is one drug that is, for lack of a better word, misunderstood. It is one of those drugs that have been judged and misjudged for years. Well, potheads have a bit of something to do with that. Recreational use of marijuana to some extent has had a negative impact on the view that people have of the herb. If someone is going to get themselves super high and drown themselves in a puddle of water beside the road on a rainy day, then there is a problem. However, it is about time that people started looking at marijuana beyond recreation. A quick look at a weed magazine or sites like liwts.org will reveal a lot to someone who has never really done any research regarding weed.

Medical usage of marijuana is very real

For starters, there is the use of marijuana in the medical world which is increasing with each passing day. The increase in cases of cancer has something to do with that. Cancer patients suffer a bit too much with chemotherapy, radiotherapy and whatever other treatments they have to undergo. The pain is enough to make someone give up on the fight against the disease. However, it has been shown that the use of weed can reduce the pain and discomfort that accompanies cancer treatment. It does not matter whether one uses marijuana in the form of a weed cake or in a vaporizer pen; it will be of great help in the treatment of cancer.

Perhaps this is the argument that is used by all activists campaigning for the legalization of marijuana. Nonetheless, it goes well beyond cancer treatment. Medical use of marijuana has found its way to pregnancy and maternal care. There are some women who suffer severe morning sickness. In fact, for some of them, it is more like ‘all day sickness’ which renders them unable to do anything but sleep. Marijuana in a vaporizer pen can help fix this situation. It is not going to be harmful to the baby and it is going to be of great help to the mother.
