It is used to help kill the pain in termenaly ill patients. The advantage is it helps the patient deal with the pain until their time is up. Like any other medical drug the disadvantage is the body becomes use to it and it takes more to get the same effect. ( This is what I think)

Here are some stuff found on the net.

"The evidence is overwhelming that marijuana can relieve certain types of pain, nausea, vomiting and other symptoms caused by such illnesses as multiple sclerosis, cancer and AIDS -- or by the harsh drugs sometimes used to treat them. And it can do so with remarkable safety. Indeed, marijuana is less toxic than many of the drugs that physicians prescribe every day."


-- Joycelyn Elders, M.D.
former U.S. Surgeon General, 3/26/04

"The American Medical Association (AMA) calls for further adequate and well-controlled studies of marijuana and related cannabinoids in patients who have serious conditions for which preclinical, anecdotal, or controlled evidence suggests possible efficacy and the application of such results to the understanding and treatment of disease.

The AMA recommends that marijuana be retained in Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act pending the outcome of such studies."

Everything we eat and breath in kills us these days but beyond that...
Pot like anything else is an individual thing. What works for one may not work for others. I knew a lady when I was seventeen who only started smoking pot because it stopped her epilepsy seizures and she tried it out of desparation not because she wanted to get high...I've known others who prefer it to alcohol and other harmful drugs.
Probably the rule of thumb to go by is try it...contrary to what some uninformed people say it won't kill you. If you like it fine...if not don't do it again. Balance and moderation.
Myself I have smoked it since I was fifteen and truly believe I wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for pot, so the key is be your own person...make your own decisions...be a leader not a follower...noone knows what's best for you except for you so look within.

Maurijuna Is An Mind Alterd Drug Some Advantges Are you get this funny feeling you will laugh,eat,sleep,fall,it all depends on what kind of weed you have. the more stronger the thc is the more of effects you will feel but some diadvantage are memory loss and you will start failing(if you are in school) because you will not feel like doing work. loss of coordination, lack of reflexes but i read the other day that maurajuina is not linked to lung cancer.

Medical advantages - it curbs nausea so that cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy can eat, and have the appetite to do so. Suppresses anxiety in same patients.

Disadvantages - short-term memory loss and loss of motivation in casual chronic users. Added tar in lungs and slight loss of motor coordination.

I LOVE it when people say it KILLS you!

I want sources for that.

Actually. The advantages are that it is said to calm you, to alleviate pain in people that cannot take pain medicines, and recreationally, it's a bit like getting drunk... a totally different feeling, but it makes your mind fuzzy and people think it is fun.

The disadvantages are that you are taking smoke and tar into your lungs, just like smoking cigarettes. And that it's illegal... in some countries.

Many countries (USA not included of course) are de-criminalizing marijuana because there are no proven medical adverse effects besides the inhalation of toxins (as in cigs).

How many times have you heard of someone coming home drunk and beating their family? How many times have you heard of someone coming home stoned on marijuana and beating their family???

Hm.
