other research and studies dedicated to Marijuana has shown early signs
that it can also inhibit cancer cell growth in animals.
Other research studies have also pointed out that using Marijuana can

manifest themselves long after an individual has given up using Marijuana.

medical market that have the same positive effects of Marijuana with little or
none of the negative side effects.

the legalization of Marijuana as a medical drug. These organizations cited
that only some isolated elements of Marijuana can be
regarded as medically helpful and that the practice of
smoking it does not necessarily have to be done.
The move to legalize the use and propagation of Marijuana
will always have opposition since this plant is controversial.
If the government does allow the use and propagation of
Cannabis, there will always be a loophole which will be used
by drug addicts and traffickers to be able to make money
from the lifting of the ban.
