Medical Marijuana. What is the problem with it?

So I will begin by stating that I am not a marijuana user, in any form. However I have been on dozens of prescribed drugs in pill form. Having had 13 total hip procedures in 2 years, I have been on many types of medicines, and am aware of their possible side effects. Here in Florida a man named John Morgan is heading up the largest campaign to legalize the medicinal use of the drug/ plant with his unitedforcare effort. Here is the link;

As I read through the information my first thought is that it is a no-brainer. If we allow big pharma. to issue thousands of drugs with much less documentation, many more serious potential side effects, why would anyone not be pro-legalization for those in need? My thoughts wandered back to the reason I started this blog in the first place. To educate people that they do not have to believe what they think, especially when what they think came from an unreliable source.

I believe a suffering patient who is not benefitting from current meds, would not be harmed by trying a pill form or oil form of medicinal marijuana.I do believe there are people who automatically think legalizing “pot” means that every kid and thug will be smoking joints in public. That is NOT the effort being made here. It is really something people have to think about for themselves, compare to current drugs approved by the FDA each day, and make a sound decision .

Read this article and link above, pass it on and pass it on again. I want feedback on this and any supporters I will forward to Attorney John Morgan who is behind the effort. Please share what you think!

My family Is filled with depression , addiction and suicide. I also have had to navigate my way through these areas . I use my own experience to help others.
