Cannabinoids have been shown to slow the growth of tumor & cancer cells! I have been using medical marijuana for the past five years to help with involuntary muscle spasms. I have a problem that is called restless legs syndrome. It also affects other areas throughout my body appreciate my arms & my hands. I can’t maintenance the problem, but I can help the symptoms, however when my legs start to shake or transport on their own, I use heavy amounts of cannabis. Since using medical marijuana biweekly, the muscle spasms have been far less frequent & intense. I am not the only woman that uses marijuana to help with medical concernsâ€¦ A friend of mine has suffered from anorexia & appetite loss for 10 years. When she started using medical marijuana, her appetite was increased & she earned 6 lb in a more than one-month period. Marijuana has so numerous uses for the body & mind. It should be legal for everyone across the countryâ€¦ Denying someone the benefits of a plant when others have access 5 miles away is easily communistic.
