Again Mr G has given me a right laugh today by saying there is some idiot out there who believes that the laws now being passed in many countries for the legal use of medical marijuana should also include smoking it as a drug enhancement for personal highs. Are these guys fucking mad! Its like saying we should allow cocaine to be used for personal use because cocaine is used in today's dental anesthesia, octocaine,lidocaine mepivacaine.

More states are passing laws that allow people to use medical marijuana. So what does it treat, and who can and should use it?
Pain is the main reason people ask for a prescription, says Barth Wilsey, MD, a pain medicine specialist at the University of California Davis Medical Center. It could be from headaches, a disease like cancer, or a long-term condition, like glaucoma or nerve pain.
If you live in a state where medical marijuana is legal and your doctor thinks it would help, you’ll get a “marijuana card.” You will be put on a list that allows you to buy marijuana from an authorized seller, called a dispensary.
Doctors also may prescribe medical marijuana to treat:
Muscle spasms caused by multiple sclerosis
Nausea from cancer chemotherapy
Poor appetite and weight loss caused by chronic illness, such as HIV, or nerve pain
The FDA has also approved THC, a key ingredient in marijuana, to treat nausea and improve appetite. It's available by prescription Marinol (dronabinol) and Cesamet (nabilone).
I have for years supported the use of marijuana for medical use, in fact a UK based police woman who is in an advanced stage of MS has been a guest of mine on radio many times, she tells me she suffers pain from the top of her head to the balls of her feet daily and the only relief she receives is using marijuana.
To say that i object the use for medical use is a fucking lie and thankfully recordings of my programs prove this. I object that two bit pot smokers would like it legalized so they can use it as a source of income or personal junky highs. Its them that ruin for those who need it most!!!!!
