Waiting to Inhale

‘Waiting to Inhale’ examines the heated debate over marijuana and its use as medicine in the United States. It sheds new light on this controversy and presents shocking new evidence that marijuana could hold a big stake in the future of medicine.

Legislation to protect patients who use medical marijuana has been passed by 12 states. Yet opponents claim the medical argument is just a disguise for a different agenda – to legalize marijuana for recreation and profit.

This film looks into details such as the claims that are being made and their stakes. Waiting to Inhale takes viewers inside the lives of patients who have been forever changed by illness—and parents who lost their children to addiction.

It even attempts to evaluate whether there is any evidence to support the claim that marijuana can alleviate some of the devastating symptoms of AIDS, cancer and multiple sclerosis.

It is striking from the social stand point that we deal with marijuana more harshly than alcohol despite the fact that alcohol causes more deaths and more injuries, making peoples’ judgment impaired more than marijuana.
