What It Does

Marijuana is a mind-altering (psychoactive) drug that gives users a sense of feeling good or high. While under its influence, users may feel more hungry, temporarily lose their normal inhibitions, and become more easily sexually excited.

Smokers usually roll loose marijuana into cigarettes called joints or use a water pipe called a bong. Recently it has become popular to smoke blunts which are made by cutting a cigar open and replacing the tobacco with marijuana.

Marijuana is not addictive but it can be habit forming.

Medical Uses

Although there is disagreement among professionals about its medical uses, a growing number support its use for relief for cancer victims, migraines, glaucoma., and others illnesses. Marijuana was once frequently prescribed by doctors in the United States in the 19th century for treatment of migraines, rheumatism, and insomnia until it was outlawed by the Marijuana Stamp Act in 1937.

Marijuana is used for medical purposes in many countries. In America, 21 states plus the District of Columbia have legalized the use of medical cannabis, with most of these areas having a registry to keep track of its sales.

Marijuana is also legal for both recreational and medical reasons in Washington state and Colorado and is available at dispensaries, grow stores, and head shops throughout these states. While people in Washington and Colorado are not required to have a medical condition to purchase the drug, many still use it for medicinal reasons. As a result, companies like Leafbuyer have gotten involved in the business and now help consumers find the best available deals on marijuana-related products.
