Medical Marijuana Patient Protection Act

28 04 2008

Recently the Feds raided The Herbal Nutrition Center (again) and this time, not only did they take their medical cannabis vending-machine, they smashed all the glass shelves and display cases in the shop. So it is favorable timing that the Hon. Dr. Ron Paul has recently introduced a new bill, the “Medical Marijuana Patient Protection Act” which would bar the Federal government from intervening in such doctor/patient relationships that violate no state law.

In Dr. Paul’s new column, entitled, Politicizing Pain, he gives moral and economic credence to the necessity of such a bill with a vivid example, which of course is just one out of thousands.

POLITICIZING PAIN

K.K. Forss does not claim medical marijuana solves all his problems. His pain from a ruptured disc in his neck is debilitating. He is unable to go to work or to the First Baptist Church he used to attend because of the pain and muscle spasms. Taxpayers through Medicare spend over $18,000 a year on his various medications. Half of those drugs are strong narcotics. The other half address the various side-effects brought on by the first half, such as nausea, heartburn, heart palpitations, difficulty sleeping, and muscle spasms.

No, marijuana would not completely address all his pain, but it made a tremendous difference in the quality of his life when he tried it for over a year. It helped him regain 38 pounds he had lost. It calmed his muscle spasms and helped him sleep. In short, it alleviated many side effects and greatly reduced his need for other expensive medications. Mr. Forss estimates that being allowed to use medical marijuana would save taxpayers at least $12,000 a year in medications he would no longer need. He would also be able to work occasionally and attend some church services.

紹介しているホームページが、すぐに探せないものなので困りものです。
最近の電動工具の購入の大部分は、購入するよりも低料金、工具など大荷物、配送サービスの充実が普通になってきています。ユーザーへのサポートシステムが

多くの種類の電動工具の購入を紹介・案内とか比較をしている情報サイトは結構ありますが、何よりも最も外せないポイントであるといえる”見つけ方”について
しっかりと案内しているホームページっていうのは、不思議と探すことができないものだといえるでしょう。
