Dr Oz: Medical Marijuana History
Doctor Oz said that Medical Marijuana goes back 200 years. Until the late 1930’s, it was sold in pharmacies to treat pain, inflammation and muscle spasms. In the 1970’s, the United States government created The Controlled Substances Act which classified Marijuana as a Schedule 1 Narcotic, and Cannabis (the medical term for Marijuana) was considered a harmful drug that was not acceptable for any form of medical use. Over the last two decades, doctors and patients have challenged this classification and have said that Medical Marijuana can help people with pain from Cancer, AIDS, Multiple Sclerosis, Migraines, Arthritis and Glaucoma.
