Medical Marijuana

Cream in the Cupcake Cream in the Cupcake
I was curious if anybody else was a medical marijuana patient or uses marijuana for medicinal purposes. My boyfriend and I both have our cards in CA. Do you have a medical marijuana card? Why do you use marijuana?

I don't have the card yet, though I do plan to get it eventually. I have trouble sleeping almost every day, as well as nausea at least a couple times a week, and I have noticed that smoking helps me a lot. I don't want to use it without the card, though, because my employer will test me if they have "reasonable suspicion," which would then get me fired.

I don't smoke marijuana, however, I'm a huge suporter of Medical Marijuana for those that need it, as well as legalizing it in general.

I occasionally smoke marijuana and qualify for a card. I smoke so infrequently though that the paperwork doesn't seem worth it. I smoke 4 to 5 times a year when I am no longer able to mitigate my anxiety in other ways.

I don't have a problem with smoking pot but I do have a problem smoking. I've found that since I quit smoking altogether my body just doesn't tolerate smoke...even pot.
So while the spirit is willing the lungs aren't.

I don't do it and don't want to do it. My Xanax helps with my anxiety enough and things just irritate my lungs enough as is that i don't need to be smoking anything, weed or cigarettes, doesn't matter.

Unfortunately Medical Marijuana has been hijacked. The excuses people use to smoke dope defy credulity. There are people with serious pain and need who get lumped with the dead-heads that fake medical need. Oh I have a head ache - better roll a joint - really!?

Californians completely rejected a recent initiative to legalize pot - as the most liberal state out of all 50 - it it can't pass here - it has no chance in the other 49.

For better or worse pot is going to remain illegal so I guess there is no shortage of people willing to game the system for a little mary jane induced high.

I don't live in CA, so the question is kind of moot for me

Well, legalizing it would not be a good thing. The government has enough control over its people. It is legal for peole who have a doctor recommendation. I would be arrested if I sold it or bought it from somebody off the street. Legalizing marijuana and Medical Marijuana are different subjects.

I FULLY believe in Medical Marijuana. When I started smoking when I was younger it was for fun. Now I use it not just for fun but also for all the pains I have. I have chronic knee pain from a injury, bad cramps and to sleep. This one thing has helped all of them instead of taking a vicoden for knee, which makes me throw up and feel like crap it never used to but I've taken so much my body don't like it anymore. I would also take lots of asprin for headaches, midol for the cramps and bloating then I would take tylenol pm for sleeping. All these pills has started damaging my liver. I have alot of other medical problems that I have not gotten to the bottom to. I talked to my doc about this and was advised that smoking marijuana is much easier on my body then all the pills I was popping. I have noticed how much better I feel, no tummy aches everyday from pills.

I don't smoke it and I think Medical Marijuana is kind of a crock. For the people who really really do need it (like chronic pain...terminal illness type deals) it's a good thing, but people seem to think they need it for everything now. I think if it's going to be okay for some people it might as well be legal for EVERYONE.

I used to smoke it for anxiety and for my headaches, but I quit years ago, because it started giving me worse anxiety and actually started causing headaches :S but I have no problem with anyone else that uses it.

I intend on smoking it again once I change careers soon. I plan on making a grow room (urbangrower-youtube), in my basement. Weed has so man beneficial qualities, it should be publically available for adults. It does not need to be smoked. There are rubs, creams, foods, candies, gum, etc., which are good alternatives. I would use it for chronic pain and stress.

Interesting to hear - when I read about people using pat for headaches and other minor pain - that's where have to think - what a crock of ..... My thought is they are probably doing more harm than good.

People who do illegal drugs should consider the huge loss of life associated with filling their habit. The drug war in Mexico is a prime example.

I'm not sure how offended I should be about this comment.

There would not be a drug war in Mexico if it was legal. Also, the Mexico war is over much more then just 'weed'. What's going on down there is compairable to Tony Montana's coke rein, only difference is Mexico has a bigger 'family'. Peoples heads don't get sawed off and hung off a bridge over just 'weed'. There is way more street value in hard drugs. Now, marijuana has more then street value, it also has economical and environmental value as well (not being used as an illegal drug). Whether you believe in Mother Earth or in a higher power marijuana also has it's 'place' there too.

Coming from someone who has to take so many different pills for so many different reasons, it takes a toll on the body having all the chemicals from pharmaceuticals. Every man made drug has more WARNINGS on the labels then symptoms the meds help. I'd rather light up a doobie then pop more asprin that eats away at my liver. There is no study that has been done long enough and broad arange of paitents to confirm the negatives that are stereotyped by marijuana. I for one, am a bright young women who has worked my but off to move up the 'corparate chain'. I smoke marijuana a lot. I started years ago because I liked it, now it has helped me with my medical problems. Now I have relief and can be in a good mood too.

Sorry if I offended you.

The fact is, pot is illegal and people are killed every day to supply users. The "if it were legal" argument is empty. If there was no speed limit speeding wouldn't be a crime - but it is and will remain so in 99.9% of locations.

You are obviously correct, the drug war in Mexico is about meth & cocaine as well - so if the answer is legalize them all - so be it. But it isn't going to happen.

By not buying illegal drugs I do not contribute to deaths of the innocent or the smugglers and traffickers.

I do support medical marijuana - but everyone with a headache doesn't need it.

No, the man made drugs I do not agree with. I have been down the road with man made drug like meth and it is horrible what that stuff can do to someone and famiies.

Even without legalizing it for smoking purposes I fully believe it should still be used for other benefits like paper, I won't ramble about them all. But the hardship still stands if there are grow farms to use for enviromental reasons, it would have to be almost a military type lockdown to protect from thieves and more violence. If it were a military type then it would also put money into government pockets, it's no hiding the government greed so I say why not...?

There is a drug problem in the world but it is not (solely)marijuana. Its not addictive, so cartels dont have as much interest but it is still an income for them. And considering that it is a natural, organic plant it is much safer than refined drugs such as cocaine, heroin, and cigarettes. Medical Marijuana is safe as it is, if the govt gets their hands on it, it will no longer be organic. It will be pumped full of pesticides. And the price? Have you seen how much organic tomatos and apples are these days?

Of course this is a huge debate in our country right now and I think both sides are lying. The government wants control because they see $$$$$$$$, either in production or prosecution. The War on Drugs is an effort to keep the right happy while holding open the backdoor for traffickers. Foresight is not a human being's strong point so trying to predict what will happen if it's legalized is just shooting arrows at stars. It's something to do but it won't get you anywhere.

I think everyone over the age of 18, and in certain cases those under the age of 18, should have access to legal marijuana for whatever the need or reason. Whether you want to smoke it or eat it or sit there and stare at it all day (the good stuff really is pretty), fine by me just chill the fuck out.

Regular users build up a tolerance just like a person on anti-depressants. I suspect most citizens who want to keep it against federal law have only smoked occasionally. No different than the kid who goes to the bar on his 21st birthday having never had a drink in his life and taking four shots in an hour. He's going to be stone cold drunk and puking in a matter of hours. He'll probably never drink again and warn everyone else of its dangers. Same as the person who goes sky-diving for the first time, lands wrong and breaks their nose. They'll probably never recommend jumping out of a plane unless it's a matter of life and death.

...Yes, it should be legal.

I support it, absolutely. I don't smoke, but my boyfriend does. He uses it to increase his appetite and help him sleep. He recently went away on a business trip and barely ate anything because he couldn't smoke. Although now he's complaining that he's getting fat, so I'm just going to tell him to stop smoking. Hah! *eyeroll*

I agree with you but I smoke regularly and I would rather the laws stay as they are. We can go anytime to buy it legal from a collective. If it were legal, it would lower the quality and raise the cost.

Well everyone is different obviously, so it might help others for pain. I know I have a lot of pain and I'm on really strong painkillers. I do know that pot has never helped me with any of my pain. BUt like i said earlier, there was a time when it would help with headaches, but not with bad migraines and after a while it started making my headaches worse. No idea why.. maybe it was the type of weed I was smoking.. no clue. Also it ended up making my anxiety worse. So I just quit. I have nothing against anyone that smokes pot though. As long as you don't let it control your life and you're not hurting anyone, then I don't see a problem with it. I have met some people that go crazy over pot and if they don't have it, they act mean, grumpy and miserable until they do have it. I would hate to be like that. But whatever.. it has nothing to do with me.

I smoke for recreational use, but intend on getting a card at some point. I have an addictive personality, so in the past I've felt myself grow somewhat mentally addicted to it, but I got myself under control. I support it as long as the user finds a balance that works for them, unless they get to the point where they can function almost normally whilst ascended. I smoke about twice a week, and only when I'm not expected to get anything done.
