Tatiana Shohov Biography

Title:
Former Senior Editor of Nova Science Publishers
Position:
Pro to the question "Should Marijuana Be a Medical Option?"
Reasoning:

“Scientific evidence verifies that marijuana has the following theraputic effects:

– Relief from nausea and increase of appetite;
– Reduction of intraocular (‘within the eye’) pressure;
– Reduction of muscle spasams;
– Relief from chronic pain

Consequently, it is sometimes used to treat the symptoms of AIDS, cancer, multiple sclerosis, and other serious conditions…

Marijuana prohibition simply does not work…

Millions of patients who could benefit from marijuana must either suffer or use it illegally and risk arrest.”
