There is the drug marinol, which has the active ingredient of marijanua 
(tetrahydrocannobin). Marinol was used as an anti-emetic and appetite enhancer. 
Much better antiemetics (anti vomiting meds) are now on the market .. Zoftran 
and Kytril come to mind.

Marinol is sometimes prescribed for patients with glucoma...but I do not 
believe this is a standard treatment.
