Cannabis – The New Trend in Controlling Epileptic Seizures.

Cannabis has been here on the earth since the beginning of time. It has been said that cannabis  has been used for different types of sickness from the time of Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble all the way through the time of Christ and through the 1800’s A.D. The different types of sickness cannabis has been used for in the past is for headaches, muscle and body pain, colds and flu’s and fevers as well; until it was classified illegal  in the United States and Canada in the 1920’s.

In the 1920’s the United States made cannabis illegal for all types of uses  because they thought that cannabis was a poison  and later classified it a drug. After the United States declared Cannabis illegal Canada did the very same thing  of making  the plant illegal. Now drugs are  actually man made not naturally made and as far as I am concerned  cannabis is a plant and should not be classified Illegal. people  have been  smoking cannabis regularly  for thousands of years with no true problems and the plant has help save many lives in the past so it shouldn’t be illegal.

Now cannabis has been  known to people in many different names, from  the 1960’s to the present cannabis  has been mostly know in the name of Marijuana, but many people have called it not just Marijuana but pot, and weed as well. Finally, in the year 2011 the state of California of the United States of America legalized Marijuana for medical purposes only; for there were many tests done on it that proved that it helped with arthritis pain, help  with cancer treatments and even controlling epileptic seizures in both children and adults as well; not counting other different types of sickness.

Many neurologists  here in  California have been prescribing medical marijuana for patients with all different types of epilepsy t in controlling different types of seizures, there have been some  children that have had many seizures a day, I heard of one child on the news that was having up to 100 seizures per day until she had  started taking the medical marijuana then her seizures started going down tremendously and now it was the  child  has not had  not one seizure in  a year and a half. Still though the government of the United States still will not legalize  Marijuana  to this day,  they think it is still a drug  even with  over 65% of the people of the United  States demanding it to be made legal and no one in the country trust this government anymore.
