Marijuana is not the bogeyman. It clearly has medicinal value, so make it possible for NY residents in need to be able to obtain it. There are so many more harmful substances that are available under a doctor's supervision that can also be abused. As I said, marijuana is not the bogeyman.
Why have so many individuals suffer, when a safe and reliable plant is available that could alleviate pain and control so many various symptoms? Medical Marijuana isn't the same stuff that plenty of people smoke to get High, it's bred so it has a difference balance of components within that have a different affect on the body. The science is there, it's long over due for NYS to review the facts, and make real medicine available to it's citizens.
I have a cat dying of a slow growing fibrous tumor. He is clearly in pain, but still enjoying life to the extent possible through his pain. Medical marijuana would help him more fully enjoy the life he has remaining and would significantly ease his transition into death.
We've got millions of people addicted to prescription pain medicine which is really nothing more than pharmaceutical grade heroin so I fail to see the big deal. Apparently the medical marijuana industry does not contribute money to politicians at the same rate as big pharma. Like most things, just follow the money.
