Marijuana use for Multiple Sclerosis patients
40% of MS patients have used cannabis

Forty percent of Multiple Sclerosis patients have used cannabis (Marijuana), and more than 50% of MS patients have some cognitive dysfunction. Marijuana is used to treat pain, spasticity, and urinary symptoms. Studies show that cannabis does not affect mood or cause anxiety or psychosis. A new study, however, shows that it may compromise already impaired cognitive dysfunction. Also, cannabis users are more likely to be unemployed than nonusers.
