Marijuana Effect on the Human Body
According to an ancient Chinese book, marijuana dates back to 5,000 years. It is a psychoactive drug found and used worldwide under different names and purposes. The National Institute of Health carried out studies on the drug and it has been shown marijuana is dangerous to the human body.
In the United States the drug is controlled since it produces dependence and addiction to the users (Straiker, 1999). Similarly it has been medically proven to alter euphoria and consciousness. On the contrary there are various medicinal properties of the drug, which include muscle relaxant, antiflammatory, anticonvulsant, appetite stimulant and many more.
This medicinal uses of the drug have led to a number of debates with many people showing doubt regarding the effectiveness of marijuana as a treatment of some of the diseases.
