Medical Marijuana

Recently I have read some articles based on Medical Marijuana and some of the positive effects which could be gained by taking it internally. I'm not talking about smoking it. But I'm talking about Topical creams. The thing that bothers me about the whole situation is there was no scientific study done back when it was made illegal not to mention that but most other more heavy illegal drugs are used in many of our pain killers right now which are much more serious and dangerous and addictive. Does heroine or opium which is used as a by-products in painkillers make them safer then the actual drugs which are illegal. I would imagine the answer to that would be no because you still can get addicted to them and you can overdose and kill yourself with painkillers too. So if illegal drugs with even more serious side effects of Marijuana is banned then why not accept marijuana as a more excepted treatment to health problems. It makes me wonder if maybe the effects of marijuana are actually too good to actually pass as a drug. Like the cannabinoid found in marijuana can actually block cell growth or stop the growth of blood vessels which turn into tumors so why can't this be used to help people with untreatable cancers like brain cancer or tumors which can't be treated. Another thing I found very interesting when I was looking up information about during the 1970's when it was made illegal besides the government believing that it had no medical value at that time they still distributed it to patients under the Compassionate Use Investigational New Drug (IND) program between 1978 and 1992. They found over the past 20 years that cannabinoids have an effect in immunity which is the protection against infectious diseases. Some other studies on laboratory animal's which were done showed even better results including the reduction and removal of tumors and also the fact that cannabinoids can not only stop cancer from growing and kill cancer cells but also help protect normal cells. Another study done with mice showed that cannabinoids can protect the colon from inflammation and have potential in reducing the risk of colon cancer as well as used in the treatment of people who have colon cancer. There was another study done on liver cancer which showed that cannabinoids damaged or killed cancer cells and showed it had anti-tumor effects. Of course just hearing it from me might not be enough so why not read it for yourself from the government website this way you know I am not just making it up. http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/pdq/cam/cannabis/patient/Page2#Section_5 Of course all of this proof and yet there is still legal problems with the use of marijuana makes me wonder if maybe they would rather not cure people at all. How much positive results do you need to get something approved for use? Sounds to me like it should have been used for full medical treatment months ago. This is the kind of stuff which makes me angry. Sure just like alcohol marijuana can be used and abused by people but if it can be used to save people then we should be using it because people will always find a way to abuse a good thing anyway. But if we can save lives especially those of children. Just recently there has been cancer patients who have been going viral do we really want to not use methods which can cure these children simply because something is illegal if we know that it could possibly cure different types of cancer? How many people will need to die for things to change? Really makes me wonder.

Living with medical problems

Life can be a real challenge especially if you have a medical condition. Even if the medical condition is something small it still becomes a personal challenge you have to overcome daily it can be hard to overcome for some people depending on how bad the symptoms are. You might find yourself struggling to get though the day. But have hope no matter what illness you are battling you aren't alone there is many other people who either have the same medical condition or have one which is similar.

Like for example I have a friend who has (OCD) Obsessive-compulsive disorder and for him it's pretty bad. He will see something out of place and spend time organizing it. Before I knew he had OCD I made the mistake of borrowing a dvd from his anime collection and I put it back in the wrong spot. Later I notice all of the dvd's off the shelf and hes reorganizing them all I ask him why he didn't just put the dvd back on the shelf without reorganizing and that's when I found out he had OCD he cannot take the simple way out for tasks like that otherwise he'll lose sleep over it. I try my best to support him and I know how much OCD frustrates him. I personally struggle with ADHD and while I've been taking herbal medicine to help which has been working for me without the vicious side effects I was battling with prescription drugs its still a challenge because of my diet which I neglect at times.

But if you know someone who has a medical problem similar to any of these show them your support they will appreciate it. Even if you don't have a condition sometimes just having someone tell you I'm here for you really makes us feel a lot better and having people we can depend on. And if you work as a cna or a doctor then I'm sure you meet people everyday that have challenges of some kind so you already know what there going through.
