While we debate, those that want to abuse the herb do so easily. And, those who need the herb desperately enough can do the same just as easily... They just become criminals. Here, two brave individuals talk about their illegal, medical use of marijuana openly.
An except from a MS patient: "Alcorn keeps a diary of symptoms and can tick off those that have disappeared since she began smoking pot in earnest:
Headaches, bone itch, numb hands and feet, tremors, inability to stand or walk more than 10 minutes at a time, nerve pain, problems swallowing, problems speaking and a stiff right arm.
Alcorn does not view marijuana as a miracle cure. Some symptoms still remain, such as balance problems, digestive dysfunction, fatigue" (people should know this too... An honest discussion is all I want)
I believe Mrs Alcorn should be able to accomplish this without going to a street dealer. And, frankly, I love that amendment 2 doesn't force Florida to wait until drug companies figure out how to get FDA approval to make millions selling a God given herb as a patented miracle drug NOT called "cannabis".
