Marijuana Can Treat Brain Injuries

Marijuana Can Treat Brain Injuries

By Marguerite Arnold

NEW YORK (MainStreet) — Those of us old enough to remember the ads featuring a frying egg in a pan, with a somber voice intoning “This is your brain on drugs,” may find a little irony then, that research in the last decade (from Israel in particular) is concluding unequivocally that marijuana, if not the other cannabinoids in the natural plant, is perhaps the only if not best drug out there for those who suffer brain injuries.

Over 50,000 civilian deaths occur in the U.S. every year from the same not to mention over 80,000 serious disabilities. Brain injuries if not neurological conditions are far off the map in terms of care if not treatment. Neurology very much is still an emerging science.
