Cannabis vs. Pharmaceutical Pain Pills

The largest growing addiction in Florida and nationwide is pharmaceutical pain pills. Addiction recovery programs have had to redesign their programs to meet the changes. Most pain medication is highly addictive and has detrimental effects to the body’s organs. The addiction to this form of medication is both physical and psychological. Deaths from medication overdoses are on the rise and have been for years.
According to Florida’s Attorney General Pam Bondi, there is a huge problem of babies being born addicted to prescription drugs. Attorney General Bondi remarked, “At one hospital alone, 30% of the babies in the neo-natal intensive care unit were born addicted to prescription drugs and are being treated with morphine.” Most likely these women were addicted to prescription drugs prior to becoming pregnant. This could simply be avoided with a safer alternative medicine in the first place.
Cannabis (as medicine) is not addictive, and has no withdrawal symptoms. There are ZERO deaths attributed to cannabis, and it is virtually impossible to overdose on. For many it is a much safer medication.
Antiementic drugs are anti-nausea medications, typically used to treat vomiting and nausea. These medicines are used to treat motion sickness, the side effects of opiod pain medication, general anesthetics and chemotherapy and digestive disorders. Many of these medications are also highly addictive, (unlike cannabis!) both physically and psychologically. Antiementic drugs can cause birth defects in an unborn baby. Overdoses and deaths are also associated with many of these medications. Some of these medications can cause a serious movement disorder that may not be reversible. Some antiementic drugs cause life-threatening interactions with other medicines.
Cannabis as medicine on the other hand is highly effective, far safer, and not physically addictive, has never killed anyone and has no life-threatening interactions with other medicines. Cannabis also has never been shown to cause any birth defects.
Cannabis has been used for thousands of years as medicine. Cannabis has been studied more than any other substance known to man. There has never been a credible study showing any birth defects or other irreversible body damage. If cannabis caused any it would be known by now.
Cannabis is a much safer medication for many instances than a large amount of the conventional medications. Floridians should have legal access to cannabis as medicine. One third of the population of the United States has been given this option under state law. Floridians should also be given the option with doctor’s approval to use a safer and in so many instances more effective medicine.
I ask you to pass the Resolution to put the Constitutional Amendment for medicinal use of cannabis on the ballot and let Florida decide.

    your website is great. when is the next post coming on this topic? i’m happy i found this blog.http://www.nascimentoturismo.net

  4. Hey there! This post couldn’t be written any better! Reading through this post reminds me of my good old room mate! He always kept chatting about this. I will forward this post to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Thank you for sharing!

  5. I think one of your advertisings caused my web browser to resize, you might want to put that on your blacklist.

  6. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  7. Hello! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  8. I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme? Superb work!

  9. Do you have a spam problem on this blog; I also am a blogger, and I was wondering your situation; we have created some nice practices and we are looking to trade methods with other folks, please shoot me an e-mail if interested.

  10. Right now it sounds like Expression Engine is the top blogging platform available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?

  11. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something informative to read?

  12. I’m not sure why but this weblog is loading very slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a problem on my end? I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.

  13. Hey! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website before but after browsing through some of the post I realized it’s new to me. Nonetheless, I’m definitely delighted I found it and I’ll be book-marking and checking back often!

  14. Most of whatever you say happens to be supprisingly precise and it makes me ponder the reason why I hadn’t looked at this with this light previously. This piece really did switch the light on for me personally as far as this specific subject goes. Nonetheless at this time there is just one point I am not really too cozy with and while I make an effort to reconcile that with the central idea of your position, allow me see exactly what all the rest of the visitors have to say.Very well done.

  15. Thanks for this article. This is a truly absorbing blog. I hope to read more soon.
