Life is frustrating for some patients with Parkinson’s Disease, a disorder of the central nervous system that affects movement, often including tremor. Simple tasks turn into impossible feats.
Fortunately, prescription drugs are not the only solution. “We now know that medical marijuana controls dyskinesia”. Dyskinesia is the abnormality or impairment of voluntary movement.
Unfortunately, not everyone has access to medical marijuana because it is still deemed illegal. There are more than 200,000 US cases of Parkinson’s per year, and it is not fair that only some patients can be treated with cannabis.
