See the five categories I’ve listed this under? Think of all the pain and suffering that includes… At this point, I don’t need any more studies to convince me that medical cannabis should be one of the first-line treatments for these illnesses. Patients should not have to choose pharmaceuticals first, and try all the other “standard” treatments, before being able to access marijuana.
Cannabis works not only to “treat” certain medical conditions, but also as a preventative for others.
No, medical cannabis will not help everyone — what treatment does? But with so few options for adequate treatment in all of these categories, this one should not be illegal. It’s cruel. It’s inhumane. It’s like making aspirin illegal.
Remove Bud from the drug scheduling list — it’s the only fair thing to do.
