Medical marijuana has hundreds of medicinal properties to help treat physical and mental ailments.
The DEA still considers marijuana to be a schedule 1 drug.
Much of this is due to the problems with the classification system. Medical marijuana should not be classified as a schedule 1 drug. Medical marijuana can be used to treat a number of diseases and conditions. The cannabis sativa plant has hundreds of cannabinoids that have different effects on our body. Medical marijuana is made from the cannabis sativa plant. It has been shown to effectively help with Alzheimer’s, cancer, epilepsy, and multiple sclerosis. It has also been shown to help with appetite loss, nausea, pain, and muscle spasms. People have seen great results when using medical marijuana to treat mental health conditions such as PTSD and generalized anxiety disorder. It helps with depression and self esteem issues. The plant has hundreds of uses, but it has still not been authorized to be taken off of the schedule 1 drug list. For this reason, medical marijuana is not covered under any health insurance premium. The cost for medical marijuana falls solely on the individual. The cost of medical marijuana is much higher than the cost for a prescription of pain pills. Once we begin to examine the reasons for the significant cost of medical marijuana, we can begin to find a way to have insurance companies cover all of the medicines that we need. Can you imagine if marijuana could be as easily accessed as any other prescription that the doctor orders?
