Marijuana, the Pros and Cons.
I only know of one con, and that is...It's not legal everywhere. At the very least it should be legal for medical use, everywhere!
I haven't smoked it since 1983, and have no experience as far as using marijuana for pain relief. To think that there's a plant out there, that could possibly help provide, even if just a little, safe and effective pain relief, and that it's, "off limits," to me, simply because of where I live, is outrageous! Especially given that Dr.'s write prescriptions for potentially lethal pain meds, because the state in which they practice medicine hasn't legalized the use of medical marijuana. I bet there's a high percentage of Dr.'s, who practice in pain management, that would much rather write scripts for marijuana than opiates. As a patient, I would much rather use marijuana than anything thing else in my medicine cabinet.
I realize marijuana is not a cure all, but if it enabled me to take LESS of the more harmful pain meds I need to take on a regular basis, I would do it without hesitation. (If it were legal.)
These are just my opinions. I don't, and would never "advocate" doing anything which is illegal. I definitely support the legalization of marijuana.
If anyone with personal experience with the use of marijuana for pain relief, can help shed some light on this subject, Id be very grateful. Anything at all that you think may be helpful. (Except moving to a "legal" state that is... It's just not in the budget this week.) :(
Thank you ahead of time for your response. I'm looking forward to learning something new.
