Medical Marijuana - The New Frontier

Medical Marijuana is a thriving industry. With slightly more than a decade of antiquity we can already see the long lasting benefits of its acceptance. Thousands of people now have access to a highly medicinal plant without having to go to the black market. The industry in itself is generating millions of dollars in annual tax revenue which is only the tip of the iceberg.
  • Marijuana Schism – As marijuana continues to gain favor in the public eye the medical marijuana industry will require making a definite separation from the recreational market. The fact of the matter is that there still are sick people relying on the medicinal aspect of marijuana. In order to make the medicine more efficient, the medical marijuana industry could benefit from a legal marijuana market in terms of obtaining higher accessibility to the substance. In other words doctors and labs could finally have the green light to scrutinize every aspect of the plant lifting the veil of mystery forever. We might see some of the deadliest diseases fall off our list of “things to worry about.”
  • Marijuana based medicines – As research advances new methods of consumption will also be innovated. Currently you can find cannabis based sprays, ointments, oils, candies and more. These days you don’t have to smoke marijuana, you can almost “anything” marijuana. We can expect cannabis based medicines to evolve into lifesaving alternative to traditional pharmaceuticals.
  • What else is out there? – With the knowledge that marijuana, a schedule I substance, is such a powerful and safe medicine we can only ask; what else is out there? What about the medicinal properties in other currently illegal plants and substances? If we were to lift the blanket prohibition on drugs and end the failed “war on drugs” as a whole, not only marijuana, what else can we achieve?
Medical Marijuana opened the doors to positive inquiry. In John Hopkins University doctors already found medicinal benefit in hallucinogenic mushrooms. If we would only divert from our current fear of drugs and society, we might discover remedies that could change humanity forever.
