Weed. Pot. Smoke. Ganja. Mary Jane...call it what you want. I call it medicine. Yea, medicine. You get a headache you take your OTC pain meds. You have cramps from your period you take your OTC meds. Good for you. I have Crohn's Disease, so I take my medicine, weed.
Now let's pretend you have a chronic or terminal illness what do you take? More chemicals? Sure that may help a bit. You know who it helps the most? Yep, big pharmaceutical companies. Pharmaceutical companies don't want you cured; hell they don't really want you to feel better in the long run. Why? Then you stop ordering their chemicals. We have a great medicine available and almost 20 states are on board with it. Our neighbors in Illinois just signed on to allow medical marijuana use for patients with chronic illnesses in 2014. Let's go Missouri!! We are the Show Me State, so show me you are living in the 21 century! Research shows that medical weed helps with many chronic illnesses. What more do we need to show you.
Will there be abuse of this product if it is made legal? Duh, of course. But is there abuse of booze? Is there abuse of current prescription meds? Yes and there always will be. We have a black president, we are closing in on nationwide same sex marriage, what more do you need to know about research and education? Get past the "oh the people just want to get high" BS. People are already getting high!!! Tax it!! Why not make money off of it for this economy, our economy that needs help! Help America and its citizens at the same time!! Open your mind people.
Below is a few links to show how medical pot is and can help. Read it even if you already have made up your mind either way. Read it and imagine your kid or another loved one has Crohn's or Lupus or Cancer and how it could benefit them. DON'T think of potheads that would benefit. Why? Because the potheads are gonna smoke either way. Think of the chronic and terminal ill patients and how they could/can benefit from it.
