drugs and medical marijuana are both prescribed by doctors. The difference is drugs are prepared by humans, prone to human error, you really can't tell if they help or not, and there are cases where some do more harm than good.

MM, on the other hand is natural, not subject to human mistakes, and the effects are immediately felt.

MM ameliorates nausea and vomiting, stimulates hunger in chemotherapy and AIDS patients, lowers intraocular eye pressure (shown to be effective for treating glaucoma), as well as general analgesic effects (pain relief).

However, medical marijuana is different than marijuana that one might purchase from a dealer. Medical Marijuana ProCon.org

Pot ice cream now being served near Santa Cruz, Calif. - KOLD News 13
~snip
(KOLD) - A pot dispensary near Santa Cruz, Calif. is offering a different take on a basic banana split.

It's marijuana-infused ice cream.

Flavors being offered include Banannabis Foster, Straw-Mari Cheesecake and Triple Chocolate Brownie. Finishing off a pint of this stuff is about equal to smoking eight joints, Crème De Cana owner Jonathan Kolodinski said.
