In brief: A Pure Med

Marinol or Dronabinol is the prescription grade version of one of the active ingredients of marijuana (delta 9-thc).
It can be used to treat the nausea associated with cancer chemotherapy and loss of appetite which causes weight loss associated with chronic diseases such as hiv/aids. It can be just as habit forming as the smoked version of the drug.
