Realchange~there is no "miracle" drug for constant chronic disabling pain. It is an alternative to the legal poisons that are currently available. Personal experience with several drug protocols for said pain relief caused more side effects and diminished quality of life for me. Also due to the rampant abuse of the meds it is making it more difficult to have a prescription filled. Have you had a problem? Are you automatically suspected as a "drug seeker?" I do the best I can with the least amount of the drugs. I have had the opportunity to have some pot, the relief is amazing without side effects inherent to the narcotics. As for the doctors that would write for pot, it is up to them to see through the ones that want it "just because." As I have posted to you, thank you for your service in Desert Storm. I pray you have as best of quality of life each day you suffer with your service connected injuries.

Propganda. Ask European countries that legalized pot in the early 80's how it worked out for their crime rate and stopping other drugs. Keep hearing it helps my cancer mantra over and over. When CA legalized it was for anyone with any valid medical problem. Citizens got back injuries over night. I got this or that and note for my Dr to try pot since nothing else works. YES I know what I am talking about dealing with constant chronic pain due to military service in Desert Storm. POT is not miracle drug it's just propgnda push to get it legal since so many in society are determined to use it.

I applaud whatever steps were taken and whatever steps are planned to open up this possibility of healing. I've seen first hand the comfort this banned and outlawed herb has offered to families of cancer patients. Please don't let ignorance block this supposedly untested drug and keep it away from those who really need the assistance it offers. Pot has a bad wrap. Weed is a recreational drug that opens doors to more unconventional drug use? Some ignorant statements like this need to be put to rest once and for all! Big drug companies may want to block this and any other easy to come by drug and limit it and figure a way to seize all they can of it and promote their own agenda and capitalize on it's use. Billions of dollars are at stake either way. Marijuana has much more health benefits and needs to be given all the respect it can. Pot has been around much longer than most other drugs have and we have had all the time in the world to test it. Stop the negative and embrace the positive. Let it be. Let the benefits outweigh the stigma. See what happens. Pray Florida also opens up it's mind to legalize this amazing drug.
