700 Medicinal Uses of Cannabis Sorted By Disease
This impressive list is a collection of clinical studies, papers and reference providing the ultimate resource for medical disorders helped by medical marijuana. For those who are looking for scientific proof of cannabis as medicine, this is a gold mine of research, many right from the government’s own website.
And bear in mind that is study is over 3 years old.. there are many more articles that have been published since then. It’s past time for the federal prohibition against this useful plant to end so research can happen without restraint, misery can be alleviated, and lives can be saved.

Hey, I am a veteran with multiple medical and mental issues. I totally support medical marijuana. There’s been talk of veterans being able to get it. I asked my doc at the VA and he told me he won’t judge but he doesn’t approve and will refuse to prescribe it. He also told me after only 5 minutes of meeting me that I wasn’t Bipolar and has only prescribed me Prozac for my agoraphobia. I used to drink alcohol and he keeps writing notes on my medical records that I have a history of drugs and alcohol. I stopped drinking and going to bars cause I was finished with that scene. I am really frustrated with the whole mess. I have come to the conclusion that the pills they cram down my throat is making my issues worse. Every psych med has a side effect of possible suicide. WHY would a doc give a bipolar and PTSD patient a pill that may result in suicide? I feel like a guinea pig and they don’t think clear when giving meds. I have been offered many varieties of psych pills to see if one would work. WHY would you give someone suicidal a pill that causes suicide. When I smoke weed, I feel awesome. When I am forced to swallow a man made chemical, I feel like life is just getting worse and I want to die. WHY can’t I choose my medicine that actually works?
As far as I know the VA has approved Medicinal Cannabis for Veterans as long as you live in state where you can get it and especially for PTSD!
So find out if where you live it is available and ask for another doctor!!!
I have 6 herniated disk 2 degenerated disk arthridist and 3 bulges on my neck and in constant pain when I smoke weed my pain seems to go away please are they going to approve weed for these chronic pains
Hi Teressa, Good questions. Re Prozac (and other pharmaceutical drugs), please read and/or ask your doctor to read, Prof. Peter Gotzsche’s 2013 book, ‘Deadly Medicines and Organised Crime: How Bi Pharma Has Corrupted Healthcare’, especially chapter 17, ‘Psychiatry, the drug industry’s paradise’.
Gotzsche’s Youtube videos are also worth watching, especially those with Dr Robert Whitaker.
PS Please refer to ‘cannabis’, rather than ‘weed’; that equates this amazing herb with a plant growing in the wrong place – a mere weed.
Best wishes from Australia.
The VA can not recommend medical marijuana because while states may approve it, the federal government does not. Any individual doctor may agree that it would help, but they cannot recommend, or prescribe it. There are groups around the country that are offering it to vets for free. But, the VA is definitely not involved. My doctor at the VA doesn’t care if I use it, but cannot say anything else about it.
