Marijuana Can Benefit Millions In Pain
If you ever heard reports on the news that California wants to legalize marijuana and tax it, here is one of the reasons why. In the 13 states where medical weed is legal, demand is increasing in phenomenal numbers.
In fact applications to become a legal user have almost doubled, since the first of the year. At one Colorado dispensary, the owner reports a 300% increase in business, but wants to be discreet, because she also works for the local government.
The numbers are increasing despite the obstacles that remain in the path of those seeking access. Many doctors are reluctant to authorize the use of the hippie lettuce for their patients, either because its efficacy has not been proven in rigorous medical trials, shown to be superior to other drugs, or because they themselves fear risking their own DEA licenses to prescribe controlled medications, like opiate pain killers, if they are seen to be defying federal drug laws.
In Boulder, the dispensary operator has cancer patients who can't get a doctor to sign; one says to talk to your oncologist; the oncologist says, talk to your personal physician. The providers are getting around this, by hiring their own doctors, at dispensaries.
We do, indeed, have a crazy situation going on here. One man's medicine is another's poison. But I believe marijuana is only a short term fix, and it may do more damage, than problem solving. The answer is taking better care of ourselves, from a much earlier age. Preventive medicine is the best medicine, and the whole purpose of this company is to provide you with an ally in the fight for better health, without any drugs, or side effects.
While marijuana may relieve pain in a number of instances, what we need to do is insure that we don't end up there, in the first place. Pharmaceutical grade fish oil can help with any number of ailments, and new discoveries about its capabilities are being found and reported nearly every day.

Goal is for July 1 retail marijuana sales, Nevada official says
Marijuana is also known as pot, grass and weed but its formal name is actually cannabis. It comes from the leaves and flowers of the plant Cannabis sativa. It is considered an illegal substance in the US and many countries and possession of marijuana is a crime punishable by law. The FDA classifies marijuana as Schedule I, substances which have a very high potential for abuse and have no proven medical use. Over the years several studies claim that some substances found in marijuana have medicinal use, especially in terminal diseases such as cancer and AIDS. This started a fierce debate over the pros and cons of the use of medical marijuana. To settle this debate, the Institute of Medicine published the famous 1999 IOM report entitled Marijuana and Medicine: Assessing the Science Base. The report was comprehensive but did not give a clear cut yes or no answer. The opposite camps of the medical marijuana issue often cite part of the report in their advocacy arguments. However, although the report clarified many things, it never settled the controversy once and for all.
Let's look at the issues that support why medical marijuana should be legalized.
(1) Marijuana is a naturally occurring herb and has been used from South America to Asia as an herbal medicine for millennia. In this day and age when the all natural and organic are important health buzzwords, a naturally occurring herb like marijuana might be more appealing to and safer for consumers than synthetic drugs.
(2) Marijuana has strong therapeutic potential. Several studies, as summarized in the IOM report, have observed that cannabis can be used as analgesic, e.g. to treat pain. A few studies showed that THC, a marijuana component is effective in treating chronic pain experienced by cancer patients. However, studies on acute pain such as those experienced during surgery and trauma have inconclusive reports. A few studies, also summarized in the IOM report, have demonstrated that some marijuana components have antiemetic properties and are, therefore, effective against nausea and vomiting, which are common side effects of cancer chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Some researchers are convinced that cannabis has some therapeutic potential against neurological diseases such as multiple sclerosis. Specific compounds extracted from marijuana have strong therapeutic potential. Cannobidiol (CBD), a major component of marijuana, has been shown to have antipsychotic, anticancer and antioxidant properties. Other cannabinoids have been shown to prevent high intraocular pressure (IOP), a major risk factor for glaucoma. Drugs that contain active ingredients present in marijuana but have been synthetically produced in the laboratory have been approved by the US FDA. One example is Marinol, an antiemetic agent indicated for nausea and vomiting associated with cancer chemotherapy. Its active ingredient is dronabinol, a synthetic delta-9- tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
(3) One of the major proponents of medical marijuana is the Marijuana Policy Project (MPP), a US-based organization. Many medical professional societies and organizations have expressed their support. As an example, The American College of Physicians, recommended a re-evaluation of the Schedule I classification of marijuana in their 2008 position paper. ACP also expresses its strong support for research into the therapeutic role of marijuana as well as exemption from federal criminal prosecution; civil liability; or professional sanctioning for physicians who prescribe or dispense medical marijuana in accordance with state law. Similarly, protection from criminal or civil penalties for patients who use medical marijuana as permitted under state laws.
(4) Medical marijuana is legally used in many developed countries The argument of if they can do it, why not us? is another strong point. Some countries, including Canada, Belgium, Austria, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Spain, Israel, and Finland have legalized the therapeutic use of marijuana under strict prescription control. Some states in the US are also allowing exemptions.
