An hour. Are you kidding, Jan?
If indeed you were in a dedicated forum, an hour of your time might be enough time to answer what, maybe 10 questions? If we're lucky?
And of those ten questions, how many would actually get an informative, usefull answer from somewhere thats trying to LOWER marijuana consumption?
QUOTE FROM NCPIC WEBSITE
The NCPIC mission is to reduce the use of cannabis in Australia by preventing uptake and providing the community with evidence-based information and interventions.
Okay, lets look at the facts. These will be lifted in short from Wikipedia as I do not have sufficient texts available to me at this time.
One: Glaucoma, a condition of increased pressure within the eyeball causing gradual loss of sight, can be treated with medical marijuana to decrease this intraocular pressure
Two: Medical cannabis is also used for analgesia, or pain relief. It is also reported to be beneficial for treating certain neurological illnesses such as epilepsy, and bipolar disorder. Case reports have found that Cannabis can relieve tics in people with obsessive compulsive disorder and Tourette syndrome. Patients treated with tetrahydrocannabinol, the main psychoactive chemical found in Cannabis, reported a significant decrease in both motor and vocal tics, some of 50% or more. Some decrease in obsessive-compulsive behavior was also found. A recent study has also concluded that cannabinoids found in Cannabis might have the ability to prevent Alzheimer's disease. THC
has been shown to reduce arterial blockages.
Three: Clinical trials conducted by the American Marijuana Policy Project, have shown the efficacy of cannabis as a treatment for cancer and AIDS patients, who often suffer from clinical depression, and from nausea and resulting weight loss due to chemotherapy and other aggressive treatments.
Four: Me. Trust me. This world would be hell if I wasnt high. As mentioned elsewhere, I'm not just some stoner, I have issues that cannabis helps me overcome.
Okay, so there are the facts as far as i can see for legalisation for MEDICAL REASONS at the very least.
Would you care to answer me on THOSE points, Ms./Mrs. Copeland?
