Cannabis - Known for treating cancer.

Cannabis, also known as marijuana, pot, weed, ganja, Mary Jane and a host of other nicknames, is a psychoactive drug from the Cannabis plant. It comes from Indian hemp plants such as Cannabis Sativa and Cannabis Indica and can grow up to 18 feet high.

There are different forms of Cannabis and each has its own uses. One of them is Marijuana, which is smoked in hand-rolled joints, or in a pipe called bong. These can only be smoked in a vaporizer. 
Vaporizers are important as they help in minimizing the effects associated with burning. Another type is used to produce hemp fiber for use in paper, textiles, and clothing.

That's not the end, cannabis is also useful for treating a number of different conditions. It has been used for medical purposes for many centuries. 

According to reports, cannabis may be useful to help conditions such as Appetite loss, Cancer, Crohn's disease, eating disorders like anorexia, Epilepsy,  Glaucoma, Mental health conditions, asthma and so on.

A few studies have found that smoking marijuana can be helpful in treating nausea and vomiting caused by cancer chemotherapy. Also, smoking marijuana has helped in increasing food intake in HIV patients.

On the other hand, marijuana can lower the user's control over movement, give a feeling of euphoria("high"), anxiety and paranoia.

Cannabis does come with some disadvantages, but the benefits of it can't be ignored. Taking it into consideration, Canada became the second country in the world to legalize recreational marijuana. 

The cannabis act states that the Canadian provinces retain the ability to ban recreational use. According to officials, the legalization of cannabis in Canada has created jobs, increased revenue, improved safety, and reduced illegal sales. Also, after the legalization of cannabis, the Canadian government has made $186 million in taxes.
Industrial experts say the revenue is quite overwhelming. Now, these taxes can be used in the development of the country.
