Knowledge of marijuana's medicinal properties is not new - Queen Victoria used it to alleviate period pains - but now, after many years of disinterest on the part of the medical establishment, demand is growing for wider official use of the drug. Among the qualities claimed for it are pain relief (especially for people suffering from spinal injuries and chronic muscle spasms), appetite stimulation, and relief from the symptoms of multiple sclerosis, epilepsy and glaucoma. In this book, three doctors describe each type of condition that marijuana can alleviate, explain recent scientific research, and provide practical information on the best ways to take it.
