Medical Marijuana News and Notes today March 2015:
The push to legalize medical marijuana is on the rise throughout the United States as research has shown that the THC and CBD are active cannabinoids useful for medical therapy treatments. Although the cannabis plant (marijuana plant) has been used for thousands of years as a form of medicinal treatment, the legalization of its use in the United States has just recently gained steam. Most notably, news is spreading that the American Academy of Pediatrics believes that medical cannabis may be useful as a therapy for certain medical conditions. Right now though, the Academy is moving forward cautiously and has relayed that additional research must be conducted. This news has given many advocates for the legalization of medical marijauna a reason to feel optimistic. In 2015, just under a dozen states are considering a form of legislation that would legalize the use of medical marijauna.

11 States will consider Legislation in 2015 that would legalize Medical Marijuana:
The states considering Medical Marijauna legislation in 2015 include Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Tennessee.
It should be noted at this stage that in the U.S., federal law still outlaws all cannabis use. Individual states are in a state of flux regarding possession, use, and sale regulation. The feds have been static on law interpretation.
