The issue about marijuana use and health problems is an old question that has been actual for many years. If, on one hand, the medical interest towards the use of marijuana has been related to its possible application in some clinical conditions that range from pain control to neuromuscular diseases, on the other hand, many implications are strictly linked to the social system, the legal use, the effects on the younger population and also to the ethical consequences [1]. In many states, the use of marijuana still poses a difficult social, political and medical open question [2].
