dreamstime_13163850There is so much Research supporting Medical Marijuana that it is very hard to know where to start. To put it as plainly as possible, there is not one major medical association that has taken a position against medical use of cannabis, where as there are many (listed here) that have released statements in favor of medical marijuana. Medical associations take into account research and the care of their patients when they make the decision to add their organization's name to the list.

Americans for Safe Access has done a great job outlining research on medical marijuana. Below you will find information booklets that they have created related to specific conditions.

Marijuana can reduce the nausea, vomiting, and loss of appetite caused by the ailment itself and by various AIDS medications.

Medical Marijuana and Chronic Pain

Marijuana can alleviate the chronic, often debilitating pain caused by numerous disorders and injuries.

It’s impossible to say how many Texans have chronic pain but according the American Chronic Pain Association, there are 86 million Americans suffering with chronic pain.


Medical Marijuana and Multiple Sclerosis

Marijuana can limit the muscle pain and spasticity caused by the disease, as well as relieving tremor and unsteadiness of gait. (Multiple sclerosis is the leading cause of neurological disability among young and middle-aged adults in the United States.)

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society estimates that 400,000 people are living with MS in the U.S. The number of Texans afflicted is unknown.
