Cannabis (marijuana): Powerful Medicine or a Simple Drug?

Humanity has always done its best to find ways to make our lives better and longer. As such, it should not be surprising that the medicine and healthcare industry are rapidly and continuously evolving. From new technologies to new practices, there are always changes to introduce into the healthcare industry.

Thanks to the legalization of recreational and medical cannabis in Canada last year, another disruptive trend emerged in the healthcare industry, they have pushed everyone into the study and legalization. Now we can expect more Canadian pharmaceutical companies to start producing cannabis-based medications.

What makes Canada’s Cannabis Act such a pivotal turn for the industry is that this nation became the first G7 country to legalize both recreational and medicinal purposes of cannabis. South of the border, the US made major steps towards lessening the hold on the cannabis industry with the provisions for hemp under the Farm Bill.

It seems like the trend across the first world countries is the acceptance of marijuana. As this support for the green movement grows, more people will remove the stigma that surrounds the medically beneficial plant. In the coming years, analysts are expecting more highly-developed countries to follow Canada’s suit.

Of course, the battle for the legalization of marijuana and hemp is not as simple as it looks. There are a lot of issues to consider. One of them concerns the law, as cannabis is still considered a dangerous drug. Then, there are certain side effects that affect your body and brain similar to any other medicine.

These are the reasons that the approval of marijuana in other countries is moving at a turtle’s pace.
