Isaac Asimov authored one of my favorite quotes, "Never let your sense of morals get in the way of doing what's right."
This amazing video demonstrates why we must urgently push for medical marijuana to be legal in every single state, bar none. There is no excuse to do otherwise, though big Pharma will likely use its arsenal to hire lobbyists and put money into the pockets of certain small-minded, power-hungry, fearful congresspeople.
It's a crime that our children have to suffer thousands of seizures and succumb to debilitating cognitive deficits because of those seizures and the heinous side effects of toxic pharmaceuticals, which by the way don't work nearly half of the time, and all in the name of ignorance, priggishness, greed and fear.
Do what you can, people. Spread the word. Educate. Do what's right. And if anyone in Maine wants to breed marijuana plants tailored to the needs of children with medically refractory epilepsy, please do!
The wheels are turning out here in Los Angeles, and I will keep you posted on what happens!ReplyDelete
so glad, eee. i can feel it in my bones. you are in my thoughts. xoxooxoxoxReplyDelete
I am right there with you, Christy. I'm in NY and have been wanting this for a very long time. Marijuana is so much less toxic and much more effective than all the shit they give our kids that doesn't even work but only kills other parts of their bodies!ReplyDelete
thanks sylvia. keep up the fight. xoDelete
gosh, i hope this initial research is right and if its legal in maine, wouldn´t it be wonderful it it worked? good luck and god bless, davidReplyDelete
yes, david, and it is legal here. the problem is multifaceted ... getting a doc to agree to write a prescription for a child, getting a hold of the right strain (THC free), making sure it is pesticide free (not a given in maine i found out), and hoping that the feds don't raid the facility. but, i still hold out hope. xoxoDelete
