Marijuana’s Medical Use Not Clear to Its Users. Doctors in Rocky Mountain State Want to Clear Things Up There

Understanding Marijuana’s Medical Use is Still Not Clear to Many and Doctors in Rocky Mountain State Want to Clear Things Up

A lot of issues about the use of marijuana as part of medical therapy have made the headlines since it was approved by congress. Still many of governors are hesitant to implement it in their own states. At present the number of states legalizing marijuana use is almost approaching the half mark.

The question of granting franchises to marijuana dispensaries has become a thorny issue for many of state health officials. Their main concern is that people may abuse its use.

Massachusetts have approved the use of Marijuana as medicine last 2012 yet but only last December were the health department able to appoint the first company to operate a franchise.

Currently, Rhode Island has the most concentration of Marijuana users according to the federally funded National Survey on Drug Use and Health. Colorado is not far behind. This is according to the same survey.

Now, Colorado doctors are calling for more understanding regarding the use of the cannabis plant and its effects. This was what the panel of doctors feel about the marijuana issue in their meeting last Monday who was given the task of studying the whole thing.

A report about the effects of marijuana use to lactating mothers and whether it has a negative effect on children’s cognitive ability will be included as one of the subject matter. The report will provide evidences on both the positive and negative aspects of marijuana use. Evidences will also be included though in a limited fashion.

No warnings as expected will be included in the report about marijuana use. The doctors will however suggest for more surveys concerning marijuana.

Currently, 23 states have already legalized the use of marijuana the latest additions  of which include New York, Minnesota and Maryland. The first one was California.

The doctors include pediatricians, toxicologists and an addiction psychiatrist.

    This past weekend, over 3000 Americans died of Cancer.

    The need to immediately, completely, legalize Marijuana throughout the world is one of the most pressing moral issues of our time, because of its medical benefits and because of the damage prohibition causes to America and to the world.

    Complete legalization is critical — its vital that there aren’t “strings” or “hoops” that Cancer patients and others who need Medical Marijuana are forced to jump through.

    Misplaced Calvinism has led to way too much human suffering and it continues to do so.

    More and more present and former members of law enforcement agree about the need to end prohibition, and have formed a rapidly expanding group of current and former undercover cops, FBI, DEA, prosecutors and Judges, from all over the world, called

    LEAP — Law Enforcement Against Prohibition

    because they’ve seen the damage prohibition causes to America and the world.

    I’m a Scientist. Not a politician, not a cop.

    But as a Scientist with a strong interest in Cancer research, I feel even more strongly about the need to ensure that no Cancer patient is denied it, because I’m so impressed with its benefits for Cancer patients.

    I urge everyone reading this to PLEASE call and email the Attorney General, the press, Congress and the President today.

    Medical Marijuana helps with Alzheimer’s, Autism, Cancer, seizures, PTSD and chronic pain, and has helped many Americans, including many veterans, stop using Alcohol, and hard drugs, both legal and illegal ones.

    Every minute an American dies of Cancer.

    Every 19 minutes an American dies of a prescription drug overdose.

    Many vets become addicted to prescription opiates and die from them.

    NOBODY has ever died from smoking too much pot.

    Cancer patients are seeing remarkable results using high dose Medical Marijuana oil, in many cases achieving complete remission, even for stage 4 cancers — there are many excellent articles on the web, and videos on youtube with patient’s personal stories about their experiences with it — and every Cancer patient that uses Marijuana to ease their suffering benefits greatly from doing so.

    It is immoral to leave Marijuana illegal, for anyone, for even a second longer.

    For Cancer patients, its a matter of life and death.

    Cancer patients can’t wait.

    Medical Marijuana has an unmatched safety profile, and for people who suffer from so many diseases, of so many kinds, its a medical miracle — and the scientific evidence behind it is rock solid.

    For Cancer patients, Medical Marijuana encourages apoptosis and autophagy of Cancer cells, while leaving normal cells untouched, is anti-angigogenic, anti-proliferative, and is anti-angiogenic.

    Its also synergistic with chemotherapy and radiation therapy, making both more effective.

    For many Cancer patients its meant the difference between life and death.

    For everyone else, its a far safer alternative to Alcohol, and infinitely safer than Cigarettes.

    Either take them off the market too, or legalize Marijuana right now.

    2016 is too far away, Its too long to wait. Every year we lose more Americans to Cancer than died in WWII.

    Between now and the 2016 elections, roughly 1 MILLION Americans will die of Cancer.

    And Its a horrible way to die.

    This article might be all the “Evidences” I need to know that marihuana impedes cognitive function. If I did not know better, based on the grammar, I would think a child wrote it. It is amazing how poorly written online articles have become. Next time, spoke your joint after you have finished.
