Medical Marijuana Doctor Issuing Recommendations for Patients Near Tampa, St. Petersburg and All of Florida


Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, leads to muscle weakness. This nervous system disease impairs physical function progressively as it advances. It gets worse over time, impacting a person's ability to chew, speak, walk, swallow and perform other muscular functions. Although there is currently no cure for ALS, medical cannabis and other treatments may slow the progression and reduce discomfort.
