    Mark;

    When my wife was undergoing chemotherapy, she found a combination of nutritional support and acupuncture to be very effective in dealing with the side effects.

    Everyone;

    If someone in my family thought they needed marijuana to help with nausea, chronic pain, glaucoma, etc. I believe the family member should have it.

    I would be opposed to allowing it in public. However, this is because I don't like the smell any more than the smell of tobacco smoke.

    I believe it should be legal and regulated for safety. I also believe that a minimum age of 21 should be required unless there is a doctor's recommendation that it is needed for medicinal purposes.

    Personally, I avoid doing drugs. I don’t trust the legal drugs and would not want to take the illegal ones. I am not interested in smoking anything. However, I believe that as long as the adults are not hurting anyone else, they should be permitted to do so.

    In my opinion, it should be legalized and made available in pharmaceutical grade so it has consistent strength.

    I can't smoke it because of asthma, but it would be better if it could be delivered in aerosol form through an inhaler. That would speed the delivery of the medical effect in a shorter time period than taking a pill.

    I have had radiation and chemotherapy for cancer and I had enormous problems with nausea. I really hate it when politicians make medical decisions instead of letting doctors do their job.

    I am in support of legalizing marijuana period, medical use or not.

    Weed, it's a good thing.

    I do not know how accurate or well balenced or reasoned these statements are.

    Our legislature (Connecticut) sent a bill approving medical use to our governor this year. Despite being a former cancer patient herself, the governor vetoed the bill.

    I used to use it for migraines. It eliminated the pain and nausea in minutes, at most half an hour. I've never found anything else even remotely close to as effective, but due to the paranoia of the law, can't use the best medication available any more.

    I agree with mark on this one. The process of making marijuana illegal in the United States had a lot to do with money and special interests.

    I'm not against people intaking the active ingredient for medical purposes, however smoking it seems the most crude drug delivery mechanism possible. Seems that if it's truly medically valuable, the active ingredients could be standardized and concentrated into a pill. It's absurd to think that smoking anything is going to be great for your health.
    There is an expensive pharmaceutical version of THC in pill form called Marinol. It makes absolutely no sense at all for cancer patients who need weed to counteract the nausea caused by chemo to take a pill they can't keep down - smoking it is an ideal method of delivering the dose.

    It also makes no sense to take a common healthful herb, prohibit it and replace it with a less effective expensive pharmaceutical.

    But these decisions are not made on the basis of what is best for patients. They are made on the basis of what is best for very large corporations that donate boatsfull of campaign cash.

    Now legalization I see as a separate issue, and yes, I think law enforcement wastes too many resources trying to bust people for weed, when there are much more serious problems out there. We had an out-of-control swat team prgram going on in this area years ago, terrorizing the county, busting down doors, ripping couples out of bed naked at 3 AM at gun point to find their dime bag. A little overboard? You bet. On top of their overzealous agenda, they were corrupt, ignoring the required legal steps for their operations and shamelessly lying in court to get their convictions. (for anyone in southeast Ohio, this is obviously the SECO outfit of the late 90's I'm talking about)

    I've decided to transfer this discussion to the miscellaneous forum because it fits there better.
    Same question, there, if you're still interested.

    So, you know it helps people. What's your opinion of the federal law-makers who oppose it? unkat27

    started a topic medical marijauna

    medical marijauna

    This is a subject that more and more people are talking about. I'm all for it. Rather than start with the usual argument, however, I'd like to begin with something a little more amusing that the members of this particular forum might appreciate. A Joke.
    Did you hear the one about the swat-team that busted down the doors of a man suspected of having marijauna?
    They found him completely naked, just out of the shower, and the swat-team leader said, with disgust,
    "Put on some clothes, you pig!"
Working...
