Many are coming to the conclusion that increased survival rates of traumatic brain injury cases are associated with the use of cannabis. During the study, conducted by UCLA Medical Center investigators of 446 patients suffering from traumatic brain injuries, the individuals underwent a urine test to determine whether or not there was the presence of THC in their systems.
After a three year review of these patients, the following information was determined. According to the Medicalxpress, “Of those patients who tested positive for the presence of marijuana, 97.6 percent survived surgery. By contrast, patients who tested negative for the presence of pot prior to surgery possessed only an 88.5 percent survival rate.”
With the current findings on the positive impact the presence of THC can have on brain trauma patients, it is likely that further therapeutic interventions will be established in the future. The likelihood increases when you consider the positive direction the marijuana industry is moving in.
Colorado has paved the way for other states to follow. For example, a poll released on October 17, 2014 by the University of Delaware revealed that a strong majority is in favor of the legalization and regulation of adult use of marijuana. In addition, Alaska and Oregon are waiting for November 4 to see how voters feel about marijuana legalization.
The study concerning cannabis use for traumatic brain injuries will surely be used as a point in favor of further legalization, as those in the industry continue to seek support for the benefits medical marijuana can offer.
