Doctor explains how cannabis works on epilepsy

It’s been about 3 months since I’ve started smoking regularly and I don’t have thoughts of suicide anymore (reddit)

Marijuana helped to save my sanity, save my marriage and, most importantly, save my life. (reposted from reddit)

I’m gonna start this by saying this is going to be a long read. I’m currently at about a [6] and I have tears in my eyes as I write this because everything that I almost lost because I had a problem that I refused to address. I was an incredibly shitty person and words will never be able to express how sorry I am.

I have pretty bad anger issues. Not violent. Just pissed off. I get set off pretty easily and couple that with that fact that I have a job that I completely hate doing but have been stuck at due to the lack of any additional skills. That’s not to say that it’s not a good job. The pay is good and I like my coworkers. I just don’t like the actual job that I do. I just end every day feeling… unfulfilled. I’ve been doing the same job for ten years. Continue reading

No toxic basis to criminalize marijuana – Lester Grinspoon

Boston Globe

BACK IN 1966, concerned that so many young people were harming themselves through the use of marijuana, I began to review the medical and scientific literature to help clarify the nature of this harmfulness. Much to my surprise, I discovered that it was a substance remarkably free of toxicity. In fact, it is far safer than any pharmaceutical or recreational drug. There is no record of a single overdose death around the world from its recreational or medicinal use. Compare that to aspirin, which is responsible for more than 1,000 deaths per year in this country alone.

Many of those who staunchly defend the prohibition against marijuana believe we do not yet know enough about it to be able to make the kinds of decisions that are now necessary. Despite the US government’s three-quarter-century-long prohibition of marijuana and its confinement to Schedule 1 of the Drug Control and Abuse Act of 1970, it is nonetheless one of the most studied therapeutically active substances in history; to date there are more than 20,000 published studies or reviews in the scientific literature referencing the cannabis plant and its cannabinoids, nearly half of which were published within the past five years.
