Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Once considered a dangerous drug, marijuana has now become recognized and accepted for its therapeutic benefits. From cancer to post-traumatic stress disorder, scientific studies have proven its medicinal value. We can better understand why it works and how it works. With these findings, many countries and states are moving toward legalization and approval for the treatment of several conditions. In The Benefits of Medical Marijuana, you'll learn how various countries treat medical marijuana, studies that support its benefits for a wide variety of condition (and some that don't), potential side effects of marijuana, and much more. As you learn more, you'll have a better understanding of the issues facing patients, government officials, and the public. You'll have the facts to decide what you believe and the facts to discuss it with others. The Benefits of Medical Marijuana is just one of five fascinating titles in the Marijuana Today series. Readers will learn about medical and recreational marijuana, the benefits and harmful effects of using marijuana, the various legal marijuana products that are now available, what supporters and opponents of marijuana legalization have to say, and much more. Each title in this series includes color photos throughout, and back matter including: an index and further reading lists for books and internet resources. Key Icons appear throughout the books in this series in an effort to encourage library readers to build knowledge, gain awareness, explore possibilities and expand their viewpoints through our content rich non-fiction books. Key Icons in this series are as follows: Words to Understand are shown at the front of each chapter with definitions. These words are set in boldfaced type in that chapter, so that readers are able to reference back to the definitions--building their vocabulary and enhancing their reading comprehension. Sidebars are highlighted graphics with content rich material within that allows readers to build knowledge and broaden their perspectives by weaving together additional information to provide realistic and holistic perspectives. Educational Videos are offered in chapters through the use of a QR code, that, when scanned, takes the student to an online video showing a moment in sports' history, a speech, or an instructional video. This gives the readers additional content to supplement the text. Text-Dependent Questions are placed at the end of each chapter. They challenge the reader's comprehension of the chapter they have just read, while sending the reader back to the text for more careful attention to the evidence presented there. Research Projects are provided at the end of each chapter as well and provide readers with suggestions for projects that encourage deeper research and analysis. And a Series Glossary of Key Terms is included in the back matter containing terminology used throughout the series. Words found here broaden the reader's knowledge and understanding of terms used in this field.
