On this week’s cowl story, “Med Alert!,” Thomas Mitchell outlines how the MMJ program has modified. “This has created all kinds of worry,” says Dr. Peter Pryor, a former emergency room doctor who now has his personal medical marijuana follow. “I’m on the level of doing what I feel is finest and writing what I feel is finest for my affected person, whether or not it’s susceptible to my license or not. The angle looks like they’re attempting to do away with us. There’s undoubtedly a distinct feeling within the air proper now. That regulation has plenty of particular adjustments, all of which appear fairly threatening if you happen to’re a medical marijuana physician.”
That quote ends Mitchell’s story, however readers have continued the dialog on social media, together with the Westword Facebook post of “Med Alert!” Says Michael:
Nonetheless attempting to “shield the youngsters from the ills of marijuana” on the expense of the accountable and the chronically unwell. I like when my rights and selections get taken away as a result of we consistently have to guard children — children whose nugatory mother and father cannot management or shield their very own offspring. This is not about defending kids a lot as it’s controlling a inhabitants’s selections for management’s sake. Any limits on how a lot alcohol adults should purchase directly? Did not fucking suppose so.
MED checks the day by day restrict for medical sufferers however doesn’t do the identical recreationally. Craziest shit outdoors of an eight gram focus restrict in order that medical sufferers prescribed by a physician can’t give minors dabs. Take a look at the individuals who vote for this, completely ass-backwards.
Medical was a faux cover-up to ease the hypocrisy of criminalizing folks for generations and to place themselves within the place to reap probably the most revenue.
That lil ol’ plant certain has damage so many of us.. gotta regulate the shit out of it or god is aware of, society may collapse.
And Denise concludes:
Your entire globe must cease the ‘ Warfare’on Medication.’ That is one other ridiculous overreach right into a pure substance. If I need to do medication — authorized or not — nobody will inform me that I can’t. Till they regulate alcohol consumption, they will shove these legal guidelines the place the solar doesn’t shine.
