History. Since the passage of Ballot Question 9 in November 2000, people in Las Vegas with serious medical conditions have been able to use medicinal marijuana legally. These conditions include cancer, arthritis, HIV/AIDS, glaucoma, chronic pain, anorexia, migraine headaches, spasticity, glaucoma and any other illness for which marijuana provides relief.
Alternatives. Patients suffering from these and other conditions may have intolerable side effects to medications or no improvement from conventional treatment.

Medical Studies. In a 2002 review of many peer-reviewed medical journals, medical marijuana was shown to have established effects in the treatment of nausea, vomiting, premenstrual syndrome, unintentional weight loss and lack of appetite. Other relatively well-confirmed effects were in the treatment of spasticity, painful conditions (especially neurogenic pain), movement disorders, asthma and glaucoma.
Organic Treatment. Preliminary findings indicate that cannabis-based drugs could prove useful in treating inflammatory bowel disease (consisting of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis), migraines, fibromyalgia and other related conditions. Medical cannabis has also been found to relieve certain symptoms of multiple sclerosis and spinal cord injuries by exhibiting antispasmodic and muscle-relaxant properties. Clinical trials provide evidence that THC reduces motor and vocal tics of Tourette syndrome and related behavioral problems such as obsessive-compulsive disorders.
