The use of marijuana for medical reasons has been extremely controversial. Marijuana has been used to treat people for chronic painful conditions, such as the nausea brought on by cancer-related chemotherapy. Research has been done concerning the use of marijuana as treatment for the pain of glaucoma (eye disease) and the wasting syndrome associated with AIDS. A number of U.S. states, such as California and Vermont, have legalized the use of marijuana for medical purposes.
