Medical Marijuana: Patients Before Profits

As an advocate for the medicinal use of marijuana who understands its benefits and has extensively studied Connecticut’s law, I see this as an excellent opportunity for the state to become a national leader in treating numerous debilitating conditions and diseases. But it must be implemented correctly, with licenses to dispense marijuana awarded to those employing a medical model based around patients, not profits.
I really appreciate this perspective from the author. They want access that’s fair for patients, just like limits on profits for health insurance companies, so should medical marijuana operations have to exist as some kind of non-profit so people are treated as patients and not just a cash opportunity.
The primary purpose for legalizing medical marijuana was to manage pain and suffering in a specific patient population: patients with cancer, glaucoma, HIV/AIDS, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord damage with intractable spasticity, epilepsy, cachexia, wasting syndrome, Crohn’s disease and post-traumatic stress disorder, known as PTSD.
