According to the June 2017 Colorado Medical Marijuana Registry report, almost 84,000 Coloradans have an active Medical Marijuana registration and 651 physicians have recommended Medical Marijuana for one or more patients on the registry. The average age of the men is 43 and the average age of the women in 47. Cannabis is simply the scientific name given to the Marijuana plant. In recent years, scientific studies have demonstrated the health benefits of Cannabis and certain chemicals contained within the plant, namely THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol). Cannabinoids are the chemical substances contained within Cannabis that can be extracted and isolated.
In recent years, Americans have sought to decriminalize and legalize Cannabis for recreational & medicinal purposes. Some states, such as Colorado, have legalized the plant for recreational use much like alcohol. The regulation and legality of Cannabis & Hemp for has been left up to each individual state and U.S. territory. Consequently, while many states and territories have passed legislation making the distribution and use of Cannabis legal for patients diagnosed with cancers and other medical conditions, others still arrest and jail innocent patients and recreational users. With the federal government agreeing with researchers and patients that there are, in fact, many medicinal benefits for cancer patients, one has to wonder when the use of Cannabis for medical purposes will become common across all fifty states.
