Cannabis seems to be able to help with a wide variety of ailments, without creating the issues of dependency, tolerance and risk of overdose and death that can be associated with much of the pharma prescribed to treat illness today.

This is forcing many to completely reevaluate their position on medical cannabis and the possible benefits of medical marijuana. Many are beginning to view cannabis with new eyes, as an agent of healing and not as an agent of destruction as we have been led to believe for almost a century now.
