Tag: Marijuana Legalization

The use of cannabis continues to spark debate around the world. Although some countries such as Canada and a few states in the USA have opted to legalise it, other countries still prohibit its use, as is the case in France.

After many years of scientific research, some studies have stated that cannabis has some medicinal properties. For example, they claim it can relieve chronic pain in adults, and help with the nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapy. A number of multiple sclerosis patients have also reported improvements in the muscle spasms caused by the condition.

There is also reasonable evidence that using cannabis may help to improve quality of sleep for people with certain illnesses.
