A recent survey from Prevention magazine revealed 75% of Americans support medical marijuana legalization. These results are likely due to the fact many Americans are becoming more aware about the potential dangers of prescription medications, as Dr. Holly Phillips mentioned on CBS This Morning, "Every 19 minutes, someone overdoses from prescription drugs. With medical marijuana, while we can't say definitively that it works for everything, we can say it is a safer option for the treatment of pain than those prescription drugs." In the the above segment, Dr. Phillips identifies the conditions medical marijuana has been used to treat and the efficacy of the medication, as well as discusses the need for more research when it comes to understanding how and why marijuana works.
