Why Should Marijuanas Be Legalized for Medical Purposes
The U.S. Supreme Court, the country`s final arbiter of legal matters, has dealt with the issue of medical marijuana only once. In 2005, Gonzalez v. Raich (referred to here as “Raich”) directly addressed the question of whether the federal government could criminalize the use of medical marijuana, which was legal under California`s medical marijuana laws . In 1996, California voters passed Proposition 215, now codified as the Compassionate Use Act of 1996, to “create an exemption from the application of the law for physicians, patients and primary care providers who possess or cultivate marijuana for medical purposes, with the recommendation of a medical license” . Hi Peter, I`m writing a research paper on the benefits of medical marijuana and I was wondering if you could provide me with reliable sources or maybe a list of benefits? WebMD: “Marijuana – Recreational and Medicine – What the Patient Thinks – What the Doctor Says.” In 1970, the U.S. Congress listed marijuana in Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act because it believed it had “no accepted medical uses.” Since then, 33 of the 50 U.S. states and D.C. have legalized the medical use of marijuana. Hi Peter, this is a very emotional subject. As I see it, since governments etc. can make money from medical marijuana, they will accept it.
It is absurd that big pharmaceutical countries are legally killing people, and it is only recently that many of us are waking up to natural medicine. Take the big alcohol manufacturers who are loved by governments and their payers around the world because they generate so much revenue for them. This is despite the devastation this drug causes to some families around the world. #soberwatersretreat After reviewing the relevant scientific data, it is clear that there is sufficient evidence to justify the Obama administration authorizing the DEA to reclassify marijuana as a Schedule II drug, which would allow the drug to be used for medical purposes. As a candidate, President Obama has promised to maintain a hands-off approach to the issue, and Attorney General Eric Holder has also said federal prosecutors will not prosecute patients or providers in accordance with state law; However, recent raids suggest otherwise. In order to ensure proper regulation of medical marijuana and the current issues surrounding the issue, the following recommendations are proposed: “The medical community is clear that it supports the use of marijuana as a potential treatment option for a number of medical conditions. In fact, many doctors already prescribe it. But health experts still don`t know what the long-term effects might be. The findings would indicate a strong desire on the part of the DEA to ease restrictions on research so that additional studies can be conducted to conclusively show where medical marijuana can and cannot help,” said Michael W. Smith, MD, medical editor of WebMD.
One of the most egregious results of marijuana prohibition is that many sick people do not have legal access to the drug that works best for them. The Drug Policy Alliance (DPA) advocates for the legalization of marijuana at the state and federal levels and the enhancement of medical marijuana programs to better protect patients` rights and access to medicines. An overwhelming proportion of U.S. adults (88%) say marijuana should be legal for medical and recreational use by adults (59%) or that it should be legal for medical use only (30%). Only one in ten (10%) say marijuana use should not be legal, according to a Pew Research Center survey conducted Oct. 10-16, 2022. These views have remained virtually unchanged since April 2021. Medical marijuana (or medical cannabis) is now legal in more than 25 U.S.
states, including Florida (thanks to Florida`s 2016 Amendment 2). Medical cannabis is used for medical purposes to treat certain medical conditions in Florida, such as: Hi Daniele, just to offer my experience. I started taking full extract cannabis oil 9 months ago (this one contains THC, but the psychoactive effects can be avoided by weaning very slowly, very, very slowly with tiny microdoses) I hate psychoactive effects. I am 58 years old and have been obese for about 10 years. I did not take cannabis oil for weight loss because I was not at all aware of this aspect, I take it as a general aid to health and prevention and for the balance of my endocannabinoid system. 3 small doses a day every day, in the last 9 months I have lost over 40 pounds during this period. Slowly but relentlessly down. I was not even aware of weight loss, since I did not, I gave up after every diet on earth, very bad and fashionable.
One day my pants literally fell off, luckily I was home 🙂, I realized that Id had lost weight, so myself and at that time about 5 months later, Id lost 15 pounds. I still can`t believe it today because I really gave up, 58 years old and very fat with sore knees and nothing I did (diligently I would like to add) changed anything, in fact everything I tried resulted in an increase in weight after the act. Cannabis has caused me to lose a lot of weight and I always go down slowly. Please note that I researched the strains and studied for months before taking the oil, grew my own plants and made my own full extraction oil with a clean solvent (ethanol) using the Rick Simpson method, which is the safest for housewives, except for its solvents which are not clean, So I used his method with a rice cooker, but I used my own choice of a clean solvent that is food grade ethanol. If you are considering taking this oil, you need to educate yourself, you need to understand that the oil contains THC, and you need to be weaned very slowly to use it without the horrible psychoactive feelings that THC brings with it if you haven`t weaned slowly, and you need to be patient once you start. But it works, it works for me and I haven`t even tried. May I suggest you start with a tincture as I did until I am no longer afraid of it, the tincture is not so strong and is a good prelude to start with the oil. You need to cultivate yours to know what you`re taking. Buying from a recreational user won`t solve anything, because they use all kinds of bad chemical nutrients and you won`t know the variety, nor will the guy selling it to you. You have to control what you take from start to finish. I suggest an indica, not sativa, because sativas can have a scary effect, well, that was the case for me, while indica strains are more relaxing, but the dose has to start and stay tiny, you`re not trying to treat cancer, you`re not increasing your dose, you`re just feeding your endocannabinoid receptors with a regular microdose 3 times a day and your body will do the rest.
Jorge Cervantes has written a book about medical cannabis that will help you grow your own cannabis indoors or outdoors, from start to finish. About 4 plants should do this, find a safe place to grow them indoors or outdoors if you have a secluded place. Cervantes also gives recipes for tincture and other edibles, but you should eventually switch to oil with the rice cooker method EVERYTHING as Rick Simpson says, but with a clean solvent. I haven`t stopped taking blood pressure medication yet, but I have reduced my dose under the doctor`s direction and estimate that they are about 15 pounds longer and are sick. My doctor is not aware of my oral cannabis, but very impressed with my weight loss, which he thinks is due to diet and exercise. My knees don`t hurt anymore. So many things come back that in my obesity forgotten ID ID even lost. Bending, tying shoes, more energy, the list goes on. I accidentally lost weight by taking full extract cannabis oil with THC and I`m absolutely thrilled while waiting for something “ah gotcha” to go away and the weight loss to go away, but it`s not and won`t because cannabis has had an effect on my system and restored balance in some way.
which I do not understand, but which I appreciate beyond measure. x You need to do research and study and make an effort to learn more about this topic, and when you do, you will be rewarded with an element of control and knowledge of why, what to do and what not to do when it comes to cannabis use. P.S. Smoking does not help, we are talking about tincture or oil of complete extract, taken orally xx The application of McCormick`s criteria to the legalization of medical marijuana supports the argument that there is a proportionate reason to allow doctors to prescribe marijuana. First, the Institute of Medicine`s most comprehensive scientific analysis to date warned that the benefits of smoking marijuana were limited because the smoke itself was toxic, but recommended administering it short-term under strict supervision to patients who do not respond to other therapies. Potential damage to a person`s lungs is a legitimate health problem; However, patients who would benefit from smoked marijuana suffer from cancer, AIDS, multiple sclerosis, etc. Many of these conditions are incurable and the treatments they undergo also have toxic effects – chemotherapy, radiotherapy, AIDS cocktail, etc. The fact is that the benefits of treatments outweigh the burdens. The focus should be on encouraging the federal government to focus its research resources on developing alternative methods of delivering cannabinoids in the form of patches, capsules and bronchial inhalers.
