Welcome to the first post of the PELP student blog. This series is meant to give some insight to future and current students about what the PELP program is like. I am a Public Relations major, with a minor in Latin. The language, not the dance style.
Peter Grinspoon, MD Contributing Editor There are few subjects that can stir up stronger emotions among doctors, scientists, researchers, policy makers, and the public than medical marijuana. Should it be legal? Has its effectiveness been proven? What conditions is it useful for?
How do we keep it out of the hands of teenagers? Is medical marijuana just a ploy to legalize marijuana in general? These are just a few of the excellent questions around this subject, questions that I am going to studiously avoid so we can focus on two specific areas: Marijuana is currently legal, on the state level, in 29 states, and in Washington, DC.
The Obama administration did not make prosecuting medical marijuana even a minor priority. President Donald Trump promised not to interfere with people who use medical marijuana, though his administration is currently threatening to reverse this policy.
Marijuana without the high Least controversial is the extract from the hemp plant known as CBD which stands for cannabidiol because this component of marijuana has little, if any, intoxicating properties. Marijuana itself has more than active components.
CBD-dominant strains have little or no THC, so patients report very little if any alteration in consciousness. Patients do, however, report many benefits of CBD, from relieving insomnia, anxiety, spasticity, and pain to treating potentially life-threatening conditions such as epilepsy.
The videos of this are dramatic. Uses of medical marijuana The most common use for medical marijuana in the United States is for pain control.
In particular, marijuana appears to ease the pain of multiple sclerosis, and nerve pain in general.
This is an area where few other options exist, and those that do, such as Neurontin, Lyrica, or opiates are highly sedating. Patients claim that marijuana allows them to resume their previous activities without feeling completely out of it and disengaged. I have also heard of its use quite successfully for fibromyalgia, endometriosis, interstitial cystitis, and most other conditions where the final common pathway is chronic pain.
Marijuana is also used to manage nausea and weight loss, and can be used to treat glaucoma. A highly promising area of research is its use for PTSD in veterans who are returning from combat zones.
Many veterans and their therapists report drastic improvement and clamor for more studies, and for a loosening of governmental restrictions on its study. This is not intended to be an inclusive list, but rather to give a brief survey of the types of conditions for which medical marijuana can provide relief.
As with all remedies, claims of effectiveness should be critically evaluated and treated with caution.A UNC School of Government Blog. A UNC School of Government Blog. North Carolina Criminal Law NC Criminal Law.
