I would just suggest Joe Shoe that you print and date this so when [if] you to get cancer and near your end you might re-read your post. To me it sounds like you have NO idea of whats involved with either the parent or child.
Because one of the first reason to use this for medical is listed, cancer!

No reply needed just think Joe.
All I'm saying is that there are better things out there for pain, and so I hope the father didn't limit it to cannabis oil in terms of possibilities. Why would someone rely ONLY on an illegal option if there are BETTER legal ones out there?

Where did you get this idea that this child's parents haven't gone to doctors?
The child had to be in some medical care to even know what was wrong and to explain to the parents on a course of treatments..

And as I stated as medical cannabis oil is to help anyone in this amount of pain and with this type of medical situation to eat as well.

From what I read from your posts you just want some debate over silly thoughts.

Well add another country to the use it list. When I did use it I always gave thanks to the Trinity for allowing mankind the fruits of every decent and safe thing on the plants.

And come 2016 Plenty of nations will put this to a vote and most want it to be used with in rules or laws. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

So now I need a canoe...............

Jamaican Senate Says Yes To Marijuana On Bob Marley's Birthday


Jamaica took one step closer to decriminalizing marijuana and it couldn't have happened on a more fitting day -- the birthday of Jamaican reggae superstar Bob Marley, whose public embrace of cannabis made him nearly synonymous with the culture of the plant.

On Friday, the Jamaican Senate passed a bill to decriminalize marijuana for medical, religious and scientific purposes. The bill, which would amend the country's Dangerous Drugs Act, would reduce possession of two ounces or less of marijuana for personal use to a ticketable offense, rather than a criminal one. Cultivation of up to five plants would be permitted. Under current Jamaican law, marijuana possession charges can lead to as much as five years in prison and a fine.

Registered health professionals would also be able to prescribe cannabis for various ailments, and accredited institutions could conduct scientific research with the plant. For the first time, Rastafarians -- members of a spiritual movement founded on the island that sees cannabis use as a sacrament -- would be able to legally smoke the substance for religious purposes, according to the Jamaica Information Service.

This is my opinion on this news: For once someone got it right...


Marijuana may be even safer than previously thought, researchers say

New study: We should stop fighting marijuana legalization and focus on alcohol and tobacco instead.

By Christopher Ingraham February 23


Compared with other recreational drugs — including alcohol — marijuana may be even safer than previously thought. And researchers may be systematically underestimating risks associated with alcohol use.

Those are the top-line findings of recent research published in the journal Scientific Reports, a subsidiary of Nature. Researchers sought to quantify the risk of death associated with the use of a variety of commonly used substances. They found that at the level of individual use, alcohol was the deadliest substance, followed by heroin and cocaine.

................ Yet it has all the drugs including Tobacco to compare....,..........

I don't think this is wise in the long run, yet the DEA has the VA playing with certain drugs the doctors use to help the Vets..

Just more Govt., in your face.

PTSD patients sue Colorado over marijuana decision

Associated Press
By KRISTEN WYATT
22 hours ago

DENVER (AP) — Colorado's decision not to allow marijuana to treat post-traumatic stress disorder has prompted a lawsuit by PTSD sufferers.





Five PTSD patients filed suit Thursday in Denver District Court. They're challenging a July decision by the Colorado Board of Health not to make PTSD the first condition added to Colorado's medical pot eligibility list in 15 years.

The PTSD rejection came despite a recommendation from Colorado's chief medical officer and a panel of physicians. They said that questions remain about how effective pot is as a PTSD treatment, but that people with PTSD are commonly using pot anyway and that the designation would allow for better understanding about how people are using the drug.

But the Board of Health cited insufficient federal research and denied the request on a 6-2 vote.

A lawyer for the PTSD patients, Bob Hoban, said the board applied an improper standard in its rejection.

"The board in effect established a standard that was impossible to meet," Hoban said. "They insist on having a federal study, which in effect is a futile standard."

Release date set for man serving life for marijuana charge - Columbia Daily Tribune | Columbia Missouri: Crime

Quote:
A Missouri man recently granted parole after being locked up for more than 21 years on a felony marijuana charge is scheduled to be released Sept. 1, his attorney said Friday.

Jeff Mizanskey, 62, is serving a life sentence at the Jefferson City Correctional Center for possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. Mizanskey, who has become a prominent figure in activists’ drive to change marijuana and drug laws, was convicted and sentenced to life in prison under Missouri’s prior and persistent offender law. When he was arrested in Pettis County in 1993, he had two previous felony convictions for pot.



Dan Viets, Mizanskey’s lawyer, said it’s possible the release date might change

“That’s what they say,” Viets said of the Sept. 1 release date. “I’m always a little skeptical because they’ve said things that haven’t been quite accurate, but that’s what they tell us.”

During his incarceration, Mizanskey became handicapped because he didn’t get proper treatment for a broken leg, Viets said. Mizanskey has a benign tumor on his arm that prison health officials declined to remove, Viets said.

“He’s really a decent man,and he doesn’t deserve what he’s been through,”
