'Sanity Up in [Marijuana] Smoke?' So thinks the Boston Herald

  [ 7 votes ]   [ 1 Comment ]
www.ProHealth.com • November 2, 2012


On Nov 2, BostonHerald.com’s editorial staff blasted a measure on the Massachusetts ballot that would legalize medical marijuana, for terminally ill patients, but also “other conditions as determined in writing by a qualifying patient’s physician.” This, to their horror, might mean “Depression? No problem. How about migraines, fibromyalgia? Whatever.” We know that people enduring real suffering with these conditions don’t feel they’re just ‘whatever.’

On the other hand, might a lack of other restrictions in the measure, such as allowing teens to obtain and use medical marijuana cards without parental consent, open the endeavor to the types of regulation problems experienced at times in other states? And will it happen, as the Boston Herald opines, that going by recent polls the measure will be “a runaway winner”?

My husband and I were discussing medical 'pot'.. I hurt too bad to spell out lengthy spelling. He asked if he thought Indiana would ever allow with doctor scrpit? I actually laughed. This state is so archaic, I can assure there will never be a chance for it to be used medicinally.

I was a teen in the '70's... Every drug was available. I didn't like them. They made me feel out of control. As I've aged my thought's have changed.

I watched my father, grandfather and two close friend's die from cancer. Long, drawn out affair's with pain being a constant companion. I thank God my dad's hospice did everything and prescibed EVERYTHING legally allowed to keep Dad in very little pain. But not all are like this wonderful hospice.

To keep away something that could very well help soothe a patient dying of whatever disease is inhumane. I truly feel this way. And if pot is what it take's, so be it. The same goes for those who are in constant debilitatig pain. Many here, fit this description. On day's if I thought it would help and it was made avaliable legally,I'm sure I would give thought to using it.

When my best friend's dad was dying of cancer, sixteen year's ago, Tom's doctor told his family, not in these exact word's, if they could find anything to help alleviate the pain to do so. When his son asked if he meant 'pot', the doctor said, "Well I can't actually say that, but whatever it take's." All of us have had great laugh's over this. And Tom's death was more peaceful then any of us could have imagined.

So for us 'whatever's' and for the many who die long agonizing, painful death's; I disagree with not only the Boston Herald, but every single doctor, medical professional, and national, state, and local government who doesn't give this more than a passing thought. For the most part, they have a mindset to never look for anything outside of the proverbial 'box'. Whatever their issue's and reason's are.

There are those GOOD people working in medical field who have been brave to publish, and gone against the 'grain' in many medical journal's; who have reasearched and come to the conclusion; If truly needed chronic pain sufferer's will not ABUSE a substance. Those who abuse, will do so, no matter pain level, outside factor's, being prone to addictive behavior's, etc. And I do believe that to be the truth. If only there weren't so many sheep (doctor's researcher's), that listen to just a few of the 'golden' demi-god's, and who could think on their own; we would have a country with much less pain. And people who would have more faith in themselves and the world around us.
