The number of people who died of medical marijuana is rising every year in the U.S.A. and 25,760 people died from overdosing on prescription drugs, including painkillers and tranquilizers like Valium, according to CDC figures. Doctors prescribe medical marijuana to treat for example, muscle spasms, nausea from cancer. (Anne Harding, 2013). It shows medical marijuana help us from serious situation. However, there are many risks. I am going to write how dose medical marijuana work; how dose medical marijuana give us bad effects and how we use or take it in to our body.
First, I will write how does medical marijuana work. Many people think that marijuana is bad for us. It is true. However, some of them can help us. For example, doctors prescribe medical marijuana treat for muscle spasm caused by multiple sclerosis, nausea from cancer and some more. Medical marijuana is good thing because it can help natural chemicals work better. For example, Smoking marijuana can calm the attacks almost immediately, as it calms the muscles of the diaphragm. (Jennifer Welsh and Kevin Loria, 2014)
Second, I am going to write about bad effects of medical marijuana. As I said, medical marijuana helps us but of course there are many risks. For example, dizziness, drowsiness, short-term memory loss and euphoria. These bad effects are so serious for human, so we need to know about these risks and we have to use it right way. Using marijuana as a medicine is nice to feel better at first but after using a lot, we will get side effects so be sure about it.
Last, I will show you how to use or take medical marijuana. It is simple. For example, smoked, vaporized, eaten, takes as a liquid extract. These are all simple to use so anyone can use marijuana easily. If you live in a state where medical marijuana is legal and your doctor thinks it would help, you can get a “marijuana card.” You will be in the list that allows you to buy marijuana from an authorized seller, called a dispensary. (Kim Bellware,2015)
In conclusion, medical marijuana can help natural chemical work better and easy to use so it seems medical marijuana is very nice thing. However, we have to know that these are many side effects and some of them are very serious. I want people to think more about medical marijuana before they use it and I want them to make a right choice. Fortunately, in Japan, using medical marijuana is prohibited by government so we do not have to worry about it. These days, globalization is developing so we have to prevent illegal marijuana from entering other countries.
