The Need for More Marijuana Dispensaries
The application of marijuana in the treatment of the chronically or critically ill has always been a topic of contention for the longest time. The drug was banned in many parts of the world for recreational and medical purposes. There is no scientific backing for any efforts to ban marijuana from medical use. The groups pushing for the ban were in support of pharmaceutical groups, with their pharmaceutical alternatives.
It has been proven that marijuana plays a major role in the management of cancer patients. It has been shown to be effective in the curbing of nausea associated with chemotherapy treatment, as well as the later stages of the disease itself. It has also impacted positively on those who also suffer from HIV and Aids, by improving their appetite and amount of food consumed. Those who have frequent attacks of pain, muscle spasms, depression, brain cancer, or anxiety can also benefit from marijuana use.
When you consider the many benefits of the drugs, it becomes necessary to find out why the drug remains so unpopular in other quarters. It can be seen that many political and special interest groups do not wish to see the continued acceptance of the drug, for their selfish reasons. What these groups do talk negatively about marijuana while they try and market their pharmaceutical creations. These groups have successfully portrayed marijuana as a terrible drug with bad addiction issues. Such negative marketing makes the acceptance of marijuana as the best option nearly impossible. Politicians usually receive a cut of the profits when people are forced to see marijuana in a negative light, leaving them no choice but to use the pharmaceutical approach to dealing with these conditions. For their services, politicians will receive adequate compensation for all their publicity work. This ensures that no law will ever pass that allows for the medical use of marijuana.
We can also consider what people would use, in case there was no marijuana or pharmaceutical drugs. They make the worst option, as they are the drugs that those politicians should have focused all their energies and resources on, since they are highly addictive and incredibly destructive. Some have tried to use cocaine, heroin, and oxytocin for medical purposes. They caused more problems than they solved. They have shown that they cannot be relied on in this regard. They also promote the use of marijuana. When compared to them, marijuana is cheaper and better. There is no need for processes like these drugs do.
The political and pharmaceutical interest groups present the biggest hindrance to the adoption of marijuana as the best alternative to the treatment of the effects of some of the most painful diseases known to man. This justifies the case of setting up of more marijuana dispensaries all over the world. Patients would greatly benefit from this cheaper and safer alternative to what pharmaceutical companies are currently offering. We have been programmed to see marijuana as an evil, when it has been a solution right in front of us.
