The Medical Marijuana Desk Reference is a comprehensive and up-to-date guide on the scientific research of Cannabis species for medical treatment. The MMDR compiles primary scientific studies on the efficacy of marijuana for both state-authorized and other, not yet authorized conditions in an easy-to-use format. The reference contains a table of debilitating conditions approved for use of medical marijuana by state. Scientific studies on each condition are tabulated according to evidence for beneficial, detrimental, or neutral effects upon that condition. Over 80 medical conditions and the state of scientific knowledge about the utility of cannabis for that condition are described. Further internet resources are provided for most debilitating conditions. An extensive bibliography closes the report.
