Medical Marijuana History
Before Marijuana was synonymous as a recreational drug for smoking, it was first used for medical purposes by our ancestors. No, they weren’t just using it to get buzzed up and enjoy themselves. They actually recognized the various health benefits that marijuana can provide. Those medicinal benefits are still the same ones that are recognized today. However, with the advances in research and medical testing, the medical community has found many new uses for medical marijuana…with the science to back it up! This medical evidence has caused the public opinion regarding marijuana to take a quantum leap towards legalizing it for not only medical purposes, but recreational use as well.
New Legalization Laws
A lot of the states in the US have already legalized the distribution and use of marijuana for medical purposes. Some of these states include Alaska, Arizona, Michigan, and California, just to name a few. Many more are amending their laws to allow the use of marijuana for medical purposes. Some states, such as Colorado, Oregon, and Washington, have even passed laws recently to legalize marijuana for personal, recreational use. So it’s safe to say that there is a need for medical marijuana entrepreneurs, and more.
