Fell In Love With a Chair: Steve Zodiac: Bathia_Mapes: Some of those who use medical marijuana don't use it for pain relief. They use it because it helps with things like the side effects of chemo, such as nausea.

For those with glaucoma marijuana decreases the pressure inside the eye. That may slow the progression of the disease, preventing blindness.

For some people it helps controls epileptic seizures.

It's been shown to relieve certain symptoms from multiple sclerosis

How DARE you use verifiable facts in an argument!

BURN THE WITCH!!!

I have a terrible condition where I am not high, and the THC in marijuana helps with that, and gets me high.

Not new news. I stated this a couple threads back. In my various experiences in health care, marijuana has not helped the majority of people who have admitted they tried it for pain (mainly neurological pain such as that related to physical injury and multiple sclerosis).

It does seem to help people with what are politely called "conversion disorders" (mental disorder converted into physical pain) and non-specific unprovable possibly non-existent somatoform disorders like fibromyalgia, because of the placebo effect and anti-anxiety effect. Of course, a round of antidepressants, some cognitive behavioural therapy, and a bit of "alternative" therapy (i.e. give the patient some warm fuzzies) generally work just as well in these kinds of pain conditions so that's not high praise for marijuana.

And once again, stoners stop impeding the progress of medical marijuana by trying to piggyback your drug habit onto it. Just stand loud and proud and say "I like to get farked up, my drug of choice is marijuana, and I want it to be legal". Stop pretending you give a damn about the sick people you're using as a shield. You are damaging their cause.

/Fibromyalgia is doctor speak for "farked if I know, give her some drugs and get her out of my office before I slap the whiny coont"

ThrobblefootSpectre: ParaHandy: When was the last time a stoner killed 20-odd children with weed?

Um, wtf are you getting pissy at me for? I think weed should be legalized. I think you should be able to grow your own in your backyard.

/But since you asked - Driving while intoxicated kills more people than guns in the U.S.


A recent report suggests that gun deaths will eclipse auto fatalities of all types by 2015. I think gun deaths already easily eclipse dui deaths.

Jake Havechek: Ibupofrin will stop or blunt most pain, vicodin and the like just turns you into a socially acceptable drug addict.


I can tell you (with my doctor's blessing) that ibuprofen doesn't do a damned thing for pain - it's an anti-inflammatory, not an analgesic.It's an NSAID that relieves symptoms which can cause pain, but it doesn't deal with pain itself. And, as an NSAID, ibuprofen also has its problems when it comes to chronic use.

Before a scan, participants were given either a 15mg tablet of THC or a placebo. THC, or delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, is the active psychotropic compound in cannabis - the ingredient that's responsible for the high that drives recreational use of the drug.

"Hey, let's run a study with neurocannabinoids and act surprised when they don't work like Tylenol!"

What these "scientists" might look like:

Agreed. The use of facts to defend marijuana sickens me. That disgusting drug needs to be kept off the streets so the Mexicans intolerable criminal element will stay out of our neighborhoods and towns.
