You all thought we were kidding about it being a medicine.  I joked that it was only vaguely a medicine but that was mostly just to piss off the prohibitioners.

Twelve-year-old Alexis Bortell uses a cannabis oil called Haleigh's Hope to prevent life-threatening epileptic seizures. She takes the oil orally by syringe twice a day, and always keeps a THC spray on hand in case she experiences an aura, or pre-seizure event.

To sum up, her doctors in Texas were forced to offer the only remedy they were allowed to, lobotomy.  You f*cking kidding me?!

Which is what mom and dad said, so they moved to Colorado where she could legally be prescribed her life saving medicine and improve the quality of her life immeasurably.

Since she's become the worlds youngest out of work hippy stoner, she hasn't had a seizure for two years.  Not one!

*turns on Bob Marley, takes another massive bong rip*

This shit doesn't even cause cancer like cigarettes.  Go on Nancy Reagan heads, tell her to just say no and go get that lobotomy.

many previous civilizations have used plants for medicine & hopefully we will return to more of those cures. man made chemicals are a blessing in many ways but nature is also.

When I first started as an EMT, i had that same notion about medicine.  The truth is that practically all medicines we use today are still made from plants.  Some chemicals can be synthesized in the lab, sometimes referred to as pure chemicals,but even those are made specifically to mimic the properties of already existing chemicals in the nature, particularly the rain forest.

Off the top of my head, lidocaine topical ointment used to be made out of cocaine, the same plant anyway.  Of course, opiod based pain killers are based off heroin, or it's plant of origin Papaver somniferum, Opium poppy flower.

The right-wing nutballs only acknowledge scientific discovery when it's obsolete and surpassed something else. They're always one step behind everybody else.
