My aunt used to be an oncology health professional at a widely known hospital for most of her job.
During her time in oncology, she was dealing with thousands of patients suffering from cancer that were unable to get their hands on some quality medical marijuana… Because there is no actual difference in the growing of recreational marijuana and medical marijuana, the laws are severely strict as they have always been for both.
These patients have been told by world renowned oncologists that marijuana is what they need for their condition, yet, they are unable to access the drug in a legal way. This can be severely frustrating for a cancer patient. My aunt told me a story of a patient she had admitted to growing her own pot at her property. Honestly, this is not something that doesn’t happen often in the case of cancer patients. Growing pot can be completely easy if it is not a massive-scale grow room. If a patient is able to grow just one quality plant, this can supply them with the drugs they need to get by until they are able to get their prescription filled in a legal manner. When you are having to deal with chronic pain, you will do essentially anything to feel so much better. Opioids and alcohol only do more manglement to the body and are severely addictive. All of us assume that with the marijauna industry growing and more research on the topic of pain and marijauna, this will not be the case down the road.
