Yes - it works. My 85 year old uncle used to smoke marijuana to relieve the pain from his shingles....

Yeh i agree, but then I think it should be legal anyway.
16 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 9/3/03 - 4:00:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes.
16 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 9/3/03 - 4:20:18 PM EST (GMT-5)

Yes indeedy.
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Thursday 10/23/03 - 12:41:35 AM EST (GMT-5)
Of course
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Thursday 10/23/03 - 10:53:51 AM EST (GMT-5)
Hell yeah.
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Thursday 10/23/03 - 10:56:07 AM EST (GMT-5)
I think so.
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Thursday 10/23/03 - 10:56:08 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't see why not, I mean people can get addicted to painkillers after using them for medical reasons. Just depends on the person.
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Thursday 10/23/03 - 11:26:44 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes. This is the only potential starting point for marijuana legalization, but as long as it's just a bunch of potheads calling for medicinal marijuana, it won't happen.

i dont see docters giving eightballs to crackfeines when they're dying from withdrawls... but SHURE! why the hell not? hey everyone! want some Dank? all you need is cancer... dont have cancer? go smoke some cigarrets, dont need a prescription for those! or go stand is the sun for a while don't fret you'll get cancer somehow... then you can get high, and then you can die!
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 11/19/03 - 1:16:58 AM EST (GMT-5)
yes
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 11/21/03 - 12:35:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, they prescribe morphine and hydrocodone, why not?

Staingoth has a good point. Besides pot is natural!

HELL YEA
IF IT MAKE YOU BETTER THAN YEA IF THEY DID I'D FIGURE OUT HOW TO GIVE MYSELF A ILLNESS THAT NEEDED IT
16 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Tuesday 11/25/03 - 7:26:38 AM EST (GMT-5)
yes. the benefits have been proven time and again.

I am going to stur up the post. No I don't. Its just a cop-out for people to get high. Reguardless of what people think. Some of you will get pissed but that is my opinion. It doesn't cure anything, all it does is dull the pain. Reguardless, you still have cancer. When it does cure an illness, then maybe I will change my mind. I suffer a lot from arthritus and I don't use it.
16 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 12/18/03 - 12:47:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
jarhead, don't you think dulling the pain is a good enough reason? Or should aspirin be taken off the market as well? Besides, it does have benefits beyond that. I think a doctor should be trusted to decide what is best for his/her patient a little more than the government.
16 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 12/18/03 - 12:49:45 PM EST (GMT-5)
hell yes! it dulls the pain very well, and it's impossible to overdose. it's perfect, really. it can be eaten or smoked too.
16 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Sunday 12/21/03 - 1:39:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
YEah, and for any other reason too.

Pot dulls pain, increases appetite (useful for someone taking chemotherapy), relaxes and relieves stress, and calms the stomach.

For people with epilepsy, it can prevent seizures. I don't us it myself, but I know several people who do. True, it doesn't cure epilepsy, but neither do the anticonvulsants that are prescribed...both prevent seizures. But the anticunvulsants can kill you (liver damage, etc.), the pot won't kill you.

No, it seems pretty irresponsible for a doctor to perscribe an illegal drug, can they perscribe coke and herion too?
I'm not saying weed shouldn't be used for medical purposes, but until that's actually legal, doctors shouldn't do it.

In some states, California for example, it is legal for a doctor to prescibe pot. The Feds don't agree with the state law, however.
