Does Marijuana Have Any Medicinal Use?
Question: Does marijuana have any medicinal use?
Answer: In a report to the U.S. Congress in 1980, the Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare summarized the research on the therapeutic applications of marijuana. He concluded that while this substance showed definite promise in treating the nausea and vomiting that often accompany cancer chemotherapy, it has not proved invariably superior to other medications. Trials of the active ingredient of marijuana to reduce pressure in open-angle glaucoma produced varied results when used in combination with standard drugs. These therapeutic uses have been suggested for components of the hemp (marijuana) plant but are not considered accepted or approved as standard treatment.
