Marijuana For Pain Relief

 Another study that indicates marijuana is beneficial for pain relief, as a sleep aid, and in reducing anxiety.

The article mentions that many people can't tolerate smoking marijuana,  are concerned about the effect on their lungs, and second hand smoke . Haven't they ever heard of vapourizers?

Yeah..really? I get perturbed when I see medical mj "debates" on the news. The "reefer madness" bias is slyly promoted by showing stereotyped "drug users smoking mj". I.E., long hair, lots of tattoos, leather fingerless gloves, etc.

How about putting a mom with a volcano on there? I don't wear pearls but maybe one time....LOL.

Hi Carole,
Good to read about this study, confirms what so many already know.
I not only vapourise I also eat weed cake and chocolate.

I'm with the group that thinks they wouldn't be able to tolerate smoking it, but I've never heard of using a vaporizer. Wouldn't that affect anyone that comes in the room? Or, do you wear a face mask or something? I heard cooking it in oily foods works, like brownies. I also thought there was a pill form, you purchase from a pharmacy, but heard it doesn't help as much as the actual product itself? Wow-- lots of questions in this blog comment, sorry! lol

I know it's true. I just keep putting it off. I'm going to see if my neuro will prescribe.
