well, it seems to me if our human bodies come with cannabanoid receptors... and they do) then there must be a reason. Medical marijuana definitely has its place. I have personally seen very ill people who when they are on their "regular" medications: Oxycontins, Morphine patches, high doses of hydrocordone, are pretty pain free, but they are also nodding off wherever they are. They cant drive and they cant function, but they get pain releif.
I have seen these same people off of their prescription meds, after they have ingested medical marijuana. They are calm, smiling, their pain is significantly less and they are able to function almost normally. A great majority of medical marijuana users are not "smoking joints and getting high" a lot of them use vaporizers to ingest the marijuana, so they get the medicine but not the smoke to their luungs. Tinctures are made, topical ointments, and many, many food products are made with medical marijuana in them. Here in Washington State the legislative body assigned the task of how much marijuana could be considered a reasonable monthly amount for patients to the Department of Health. They have had various workshops, etc. here in Washington State and sent the preliminary report to Governor Gregoire. She is noe asking for input from law enforcement which shows she is indecisive and is unsure of what she is supposed to be doing. The governor should and did get reports through the department of health, which was asked for. Asking for input from law enforcement is ludacris, my Doctor doesn't have to check with the cops to prescribe me something, or have them looking over his shoulder trying to decide how much I should have with any other medication. This governor doesnt have the courage of her own convictions and she is not listening to what the people of Washington voted for. She signed the bill herself for goodness sake! Governor Gregoire will be voted out and hopefully we get a new govewrnor who has some real courage to go to bat for patients who are terminally ill.
