If we were to legalize medical cannabis the following horrible things would happen. Our dying, debilitated, and much deserving would get what they need to live and die with dignity. The social stigma would disappear and this “Gramma” could finally visit her mother, children and grandchildren who are all families supported by the US government. My friends taking opiates and feeling “out of it” all the time could reduce their medication and enjoy life more fully because their brain could compute again. My alcoholic friends could get sober or at least reduce their consumption and they may be less likely to kill someone behind the wheel of their car. Not as many children would be born with birth defects as a result of the side effects of prescription drugs. There would be an immediate rise in employment and benefits, including unions needed by countless people right now. Many disorders that there is not currently any adequate medication or treatment could be treated and symptoms managed. Medicare and Medicaid would save too much money. I can document that with my own pharmacy bills and physicians. Too many people would not end up in jail for non violent crimes. When teenagers are determined to steal their parent’s medicine the result would be they would get lazy instead of requiring a trip to the ER for an overdose or possible death. Our states would no longer have to be bankrupt, if they handled it correctly. People might get happier and have more fulfilling lives without the interference of prescription drugs and their horrific side effects. Our current veterans could get much more help with their mental, physical, and psychological problems. Our prior veterans would stop being arrested for marijuana charges. We could reduce the over populated prison by thousands by releasing marijuana possession case inmates. My brain injured friends and I might mellow out and get control over our anger, rage, and disappointment of living with a brain injury.
