Legal medical industry in Arizona
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), or Lou Gehrig’s disease (named after the 1930’s baseball player) is a progressive neuro-degenerative disease which interferes with the brain’s ability to control muscle movement.
Lou Gehrig’s currently has no cure, but medical marijuana has been proven, in multiple cases, to treat the symptoms and extend patient's lives by years.
The reasons above as well as others drove the addition of Lou Gehrig’s to the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act, meaning patients suffering from the condition can legally consume medical marijuana in the state. The benefits of this medication are extensive, starting with alleviation of some primary symptoms. Further, marijuana represents a superior alternative to the FDA-approved riluzole, which can extend life by 2 months.
Researchers at the California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco found that some of the key compounds of marijuana, including THS, have the potential of extending ALS patients lives’ by as much as 3 years.
