Evidence suggests marijuana may be beneficial to your health

If you grew up in the 1960s or 1970s, you probably witnessed, read about or perhaps tried marijuana smoking at some point in your life. The whole Woodstock atmosphere carried over into a generation-wide acceptance of recreational use of marijuana. The only problem was that at that time, it was illegal in all 50 states. Nowadays, that's not the case; in fact, the number of states passing laws about legal marijuana use continues to increase throughout the nation.

You may be one of many people in Texas who believes there are potential advantages associated with appropriate use of marijuana. However, the federal government maintains legal control over the issue, and growing, selling, buying or using marijuana remains illegal at the federal level, and Texas law is also harsh on marijuana. It's definitely an era when knowing your rights and where to seek legal support ahead of time can help you avoid serious problems.

Ways marijuana may benefit your health

Think about it. Every time there's a new fad diet of some sort on the market, thousands of people download apps and swipe their credit cards to obtain access to programs that claim to hold the answer to their weight loss problems. It's easy to understand why then, when solid scientific evidence of potential health benefits exists, more and more people are wanting to explore recreational and medicinal use of marijuana. The following list includes possible benefits associated with cannabis:

  • Many people with epilepsy report that they have enjoyed substantial reductions in seizures after using marijuana.
  • Pain relief is another possible positive side effect of marijuana use. In fact, many people who suffer glaucoma-related pain say using marijuana has been very effective in alleviating their symptoms.
  • Some people claim that marijuana use decreases lung capacity. Current evidence suggests quite the opposite.
  • If you suffer severe nausea because of a particular health condition or treatment you are currently receiving for cancer, you may want to explore available literature regarding marijuana as a possible remedy for this condition.
  • There is even evidence to show that regular marijuana use may slow the spread of cancer.

If you live or work in Texas and a police officer claims to witness you in possession of marijuana, even the smallest amount can land you behind bars. In some regions, the court may allow you enter a drug program instead of doing time in jail if you face conviction. There may also be a way to avoid conviction altogether, especially if you know where to turn for immediate legal support when a problem arises.
