Marijuana actually has many medical benefits! Believe it or not, synthetic marijuana is actually in a pill form and is readily used as medication currently....hmm.....real stuff? Or synthetic stuff? Anyway, it is used as an appetite stimulant in ill patients who cannot eat due to no appetite....your body can't heal if you don't give it the nutrition to do so. It is also used to quell nausea and ease pain. Many forms of medical marijuana do not have the THC component...one such form was used to treat a young child (in liquid form) that was having hundreds of seizures a day....started taking this form and went from hundreds a day to a couple.....so yes, medical marijuana has many benefits.
