Marijuana, Cannabis Sativa, is a fast-growing annual plant of the Cannabaceae family whose flowers produce the psychoactive chemical THC. In recent years, there has been debate amongst the medical and research community regarding the utility of marijuana for medicinal purposes. Currently, 12 states have medical marijuana laws, but Indiana has no law permitting the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes.
