Has anyone else got a family doctor who refuses to prescribe any form of marijuana by saying that it lacks sufficient data or research to qualify as any kind of drug they feel safe to offer? My question is, how do they account for the numerous side effects and early deaths, mishaps and damage caused by today's legally prescribed, well documented drugs that they do continue to offer to patients and often to their detriment. If you are prescribed something that causes side effects there is no way to really turn back the clock, and doctors are well aware that people have turned to marijuana and cannabis products for decades in recent times and they could actually do research on that. Thinking about all the medical scandals that take place on a routine basis, not to mention the scandals in politics, religion and government in general it seems so petty to deny average hardworking people access to medical marijuana for their ailments and to deny the harm that many common drugs do far beyond anything that has ever happened with cannabis etc. Go figure.
