It is extremely concerning to me that our local media is just blindly accepting the medical marijuana legislation instead of questioning very serious elements.
Why are we allowing the legislature to bypass the FDA for approving “medication?” All other medication’s have been required to go through the FDA approval processes
Why are we allowing the use of marijuana for illnesses or conditions that have zero or little research science behind them?
Why are we willing to accept an extremely high dose level of THC that has been clearly demonstrated to cause episodes of psychosis?
How are we going to deal with patients that want to smoke pot while they are hospitalized for other conditions. Will hospitals be required to carry marijuana?
Will malpractice lawsuits increase because of serious side effects from Marijuana recommendations?
Why are we not hearing about all of the negative experiences from other states that have succumbed to medical marijuana. There is tremendous evidence that allowing medical marijuana was a mistake
News media needs to be asking these questions and pushing back on a dangerous and potentially harmful legislative action.
If you don’t trust my opinion, I would be happy to connect you with a host of physicians from other states that have been dealing with this.
