What Is Natural Marijuana Detox and How Do I Detox Marijuana At Home?
Amendment 2 or the right to Medical Marijuana would make the use of medical marijuana legal under certain health conditions. Patients or caregivers with an issued license by a physician would also be allowed to attend registered marijuana treatment centers (Ballotpedia 2014). Not just anyone can get a medical marijuana license though. Individuals must be diagnosed with a "debilitating medical condition" such as cancer, HIV or glaucoma. The Florida Department of Health would be responsible for regulating medical marijuana and it would also issue identification cards and develop procedures for treatment centers. In the following passages I will discuss the pros and cons of marijuana, how poor people can obtain it if they can't afford it and how I personally feel about amendment 2 and the legalization of marijuana.
Medical marijuana has many health benefits such as relieving chronic pain due to an illness or relieving stress after a long or busy day. The evidence is proven by research that marijuana can relieve certain types of pain, nausea, vomiting, and other debilitating symptoms caused by such illnesses as cancer and AIDS in patients all around the globe (ProCon 2014). Sanjay Gupta, MD, Chief Medical Correspondent for CNN mentioned that marijuana doesn't have a high potential for abuse and there are very legitimate applications. Also "Sometimes marijuana is the only thing that works", said Gupta. Arthritis is another common disease, usually in older adults, with no current cure and marijuana has been proven to help alleviate the symptoms of this disease as well. Rheumatology reported in 2006 that "In comparison with the placebo, the CBM [cannabis-based medicine] produced statistically significant improvements in pain on movement, pain at rest and quality of sleep (ProCon 2014). Although there are several legitimate benefits of medical marijuana, there are still those who disagree and argue that the legalization of medical marijuana would be harmful to society.
Get Medical Marijuana Treatment With A Medical Marijuana Card
1. Decriminalizing and regulating marijuana will reduce minors' exposure to the drug and other, harder narcotics. For years teenagers have found it easier to get their hands on marijuana, than it is for them to get a bottle of alcohol. And that is simply because alcohol is regulated, readily available and as a result, not profitable for your local drug dealer to sell. Marijuana however, is profitable and is a great Segway for the dealer into pushing the, likely impressionable, teen into something harder, addictive and very profitable for him.
Another point, while we're on the topic of regulation, is that the dealer in this scenario could be selling something dangerous like synthetic marijuana, or even marijuana laced with something and the buyer, potentially someone in need of relief from an ailment, could be none-the-wiser and be doing a great deal of damage to their health.
2. Billions of dollars in profit from marijuana help to fuel drug syndicates and vanish from the US economy. This money could be used to generate a huge amount of tax revenue. In fact, Colorado, in only 3 months of legalization, has raised over $12 million in taxes as of March. That money, pre-regulation would have gone straight into the hands of drug lords and would have likely been used to fund their trade in hard narcotics. And this is only one state, a microcosm of the imminent potential. There are a slew of new cannabis related businesses that have gone public and whose stocks are being traded as the infamous "marijuana stocks", just another stimulant for the local economy.
3. Hemp. Enough said. Well, not really but it should be - let me fill you in on the amazing by-product that we get from the cannabis plant. Not only does hemp give us the strongest natural fiber known to man, but it also gives us building material, plastic, paper, you can even eat the stuff!
George Washington grew marijuana, he was intrigued by it's medicinal potential as recorded in his diary, but the even bigger appeal for him was hemp. He even made it mandatory for farmers to grow the plant at one stage. And it turns out that he was onto something: hemp stalks are now being developed into bio-fuel. This in itself could go a long way in reducing carbon emissions.
4. The medicinal benefits of marijuana. The plant has actually been used ever since its potential was realized around 2900 BC by Chinese Emperor Fu Hsi. He said that the plant contained both Yin and Yang. 200 years later Shen Nung, said to be the Father of Chinese medicine, noted the healing benefits of marijuana. It has since been used the world over to treat a wide array of ailments.
It wasn't really until the 20th century that all of a sudden marijuana became the evil plant that lead to insanity and certain death, a la 'Reefer Madness' (cringe). Regardless once again, its potential is being recognized and, with the advances in science that we now have at our disposal, there is more potential for medical marijuana than ever.
