All of our lives we have heard marijuana is bad for us, that it's the first step to drug addiction and life as a slacker, but it just isn't true! Over the last 75 years the Federal government has done everything it can to discredit a natural medicine that has been used throughout the world for centuries. Now, finally, the American people are beginning to learn the truth. In 2009, the American Medical Association officially endorsed the medical value of cannabis, and 15 states have legalized medical use with more legislation pending. Medical Marijuana 101 is a concise, accurate, and up-to-date resource for anyone interested in the medicinal value of marijuana. Medical Marijuana 101 can serve both as an introductory resource for those with little experience treating illness with marijuana and as a quick reference for the more experienced user.
