Medical Marijuana

Why is it that our country outlawed a natural substance making it illegal when it contains proven benefits for pain, etc. especially when dealing with such horrible effects from GBS, CIDP, Cancer, Glaucoma, etc.?

The alternative is to pump everyone full of chemicals created in labs which contain ingredients far more damaging to our bodies. When patients then become dependent or they develop a tolerance to the med’s and need dosages raised, they are flagged as drug seekers or worst yet they are investigated and sometimes jailed by the government.

It is on the ballot in California this November, let’s hope it passes.

A tip for those who need help going to sleep have you tried the spray Melatonin? Our bodies produce this on our own, but sometimes not enough. It is what helps us fall asleep.

Hi cd,
Thanks for the reply.
I have medical marijuana for the taking. I use it when the nausea comes on bad, and they are trying to get me to gain weight as they may be putting in a feeding tube.
It comes in pill form, (back in my hippy days, it was called THC,…LOL), and now it’s called Marinol. And my doctor well supplied me with it.
During the day, I don’t like to use it unless absolutely necessary, because it DEFINITELY gives you a buzz, and I want to keep a clear mind. So, I really don’t use it that often unless really sick.
BUT, HEY, if I use it at night when the spasms are bad, “I guess I’ll have pleasant dreams!!! (LOL)
Thanks for that reply, and I’ll let you know how it works.
