101 PATIENT REACTIONS TO MEDICAL MARIJUANA

 Americans from every walk of life chime in with their experiences with marijuana

 

A lot can be learned, simply by listening to people.  Americans from every walk of life chime in with their experiences with marijuana.  It's a great thing, however, a common theme is that Governments and the establishment continue to demonize and punish those who take marijuana.  The irony is that our country always farmed hemp and marijuana until the 1930s.  Marijuana was prescribed by doctors and cannabis tonics were sold in the pharmacy.  

 

When the Feds decided to declare marijuana a narcotic, the college of physicians objected, as they knew full well that cannabis was not dangerous nor especially habit forming. Even the word marijuana was made up, borrowing a name from a Spanish word/ slang for smokable herbs.

 

"Prior to 1910, “marijuana” didn’t exist as a word in American culture. Rather, “cannabis” was used, most often in reference to medicines and remedies for common household ailments. In the early 1900s, what have now become pharmaceutical giants—Bristol-Myers Squibb and Eli Lilly—used to include cannabis and cannabis extracts in their medicines." - Leafly

 

And the travesty continues until today.  Based on the overwhelming support for marijuana legalization (75+% and climbing) by the American population, the establishment's diatribe as lost nearly all credibility.  Read on and see what the people are saying about America's largest cash crop.

Researchers have identified over 70 unique cannabinoids within the cannabis plant, many of which interact with the human endo-cannabinoid system using the cannabinoid receptors found throughout your body. Some cannabinoids bind more selectively to certain receptors and are more specific for desired medical usage..
