A decade of Michigan medical marijuana testimonials and facts.
For thousands of years cultures around the world used cannabis and hemp as a food source, a tool for industrialization and religious ceremonies as well as a medicine to treat gout, rheumatism, and malaria, among other illnesses. However, once cannabis and hemp prohibition started, governments tried to make people forget about its uses and benefits by labeling and promoting it as a dangerous and evil drug. All the same, the relevance of cannabis was never fully gone and many people continued to advocate for legalization throughout the years. Today, there are 26 countries that have legalized cannabis in some form; whether it be use, cultivation, sale or a combination of the three. This includes 11 states in the United States and the District of Columbia.
With cannabis and hemp becoming more universally accepted, users of all ages are starting to come forward to share their stories about how it has helped them combat serious conditions such as cancer, post-traumatic stress disorder, opioid addiction, chronic pain, neurological conditions and more. This book is filled with just a few of their stories as well as informational diagrams and terms that can help promote research and teach the everyman that there is so much more to cannabis than just getting high.
