Marijuana’s Role in Cancer Treatment

Legality of marijuana

When you hear the word marijuana, you might associate the drug with crime. There’s good reason for jumping to that conclusion, as recreational marijuana is only legal in a few states and marijuana in general is classified as a Schedule I controlled substance by the US Drug Enforcement Administration, which means that it’s illegal. While federal regulations in most places prevent the possession and use of marijuana at all, quite a few states allow marijuana to be used when prescribed by physicians for certain medical conditions.
