“There is an abundance of information available that presents valid, medically sound reasons as to the benefits marijuana has on the body” – Dr. Michael Rothman, Holistic Physician, “Stop the Reefer Madness,” http://mdwellnessmd.com/blog/post/stop-the-reefer-madness/
The article quotes dozens of authorities, both political and medical regarding the uses of medical marijuana and the need for additional study of the claims that are made about it.
“As Joycelyn Elders, MD, former US Surgeon General, wrote in a Mar. 26, 2004 editorial published in the Providence Journal: ‘Unlike many of the drugs we prescribe every day, marijuana has never been proven to cause a fatal overdose.’” – “Stop the Reefer Madness,” http://mdwellnessmd.com/blog/post/stop-the-reefer-madness/
“Stop the Reefer Madness” even looks at specific cases where marijuana, judiciously applied has changed a life.
“A strain called Charlotte’s web was developed by Joel Stanley and his brothers who increased the amounts of a chemical called CBD and lowered amounts of THC (the chemical that gets you high) in this strain. CBD has been known to reduce seizures in patients, specifically in 5 year old Charlotte Figis, whom the strain is named after. Charlotte had been suffering from a genetic disorder where she would have up to 300 grand mal seizures a week. Her family was exhausted, having researched and tested all treatments with no luck, only to come across the Stanley brothers. Today, Charlotte remains seizure free and her story has been documented with widespread publicity.” “Stop the Reefer Madness,” http://mdwellnessmd.com/blog/post/stop-the-reefer-madness/
The report concludes by offering New Jersey sufferers of various diseases that might be eased by marijuana hope: Dr. Rothman is an enrolled physician in the state’s medical marijuana program. He is able to prescribe this powerful and safe drug to patients that need the benefits and would like to make sure to do it under a doctor’s supervision.
