| by Kate Wharmby Seldman

Medical Insurance Blog has published a graphic poster detailing 10 ways medical marijuana can help alleviate various ailments. According to the poster, smoking or otherwise ingesting marijuana can help treat migraines; relieve PMS symptoms; and even lessen the verbal tics of those with Tourette's Syndrome. Research is even suggesting that marijuana may be helpful in slowing the growth of cancerous tumors, and in preventing nerve damage caused by multiple sclerosis.

The information on the poster is based on studies and research from sources including the National Institutes of Health, the Alzheimer's Association, and the National Cancer Institute.
