Other research which has been conducted shows that Marijuana may also be used to treat several other debilitating conditions. Marijuana has been widely advertised as being used to alleviate symptoms of nausea in chemotherapy. It has also been associated with wasting, anorexia, AIDS, intraocular pressure in Glaucoma to reduce pressure in the eyes and the reduction of muscle spasticity which can be caused by conditions such as multiple sclerosis. These contentions regarding the benefits of Marijuana in these diseases were found in two studies conducted by the Institute of Medicine and the American Medical Association (Joffe & Yancy, 2004).
The Journal also states that the legislation against Marijuana is also a form of hypocrisy since the drug known as Dronabinol, which contains one of the ingredients active in Marijuana has been in use for more than a decade without any legal ramifications. Though, it is not well known what level of the drug can be used to have therapeutic effects of their patients. By contrast smoking Marijuana can increase the blood stream levels with active Marijuana ingredients almost immediately (Kassirer, 1997).
