My name is Sam Shakespeare of Boca Raton, Florida. I am a able apostle and backer of medical marijuana. The alterity of laws beyond the nation are causing adventitious abuse to families. What some American citizens can advisedly participate in, others are traveling to bastille for and families are accepting torn apart.
We are acquirements added and added about marijuana every day. The analysis of the body’s Endocannabinoid Arrangement was a above advance for the science of medical marijuana. The Endocannabinoid Arrangement is a alternation of cannabinoid receptors amid throughout the academician and axial afraid arrangement that are commutual to the body’s accustomed system, and alone collaborate with compounds begin in marijuana.
We are award that medical marijuana can be a safe and able analysis for the affection of AIDS, cancer, assorted sclerosis, pain, attack and glaucoma.
New analysis has been revealed…
A abstraction by the University of Nottingham shows how assertive actinic compounds begin in cannabis may advice to abate academician accident afterward a stroke.
The National Blight Institute’s analysis has begin how cannabis can in actuality assure academician beef adjoin the development of assertive types of academician tumors…
This one is a little “science-ey”, but a National Institute of Health abstraction finds marijuana may accommodate a adjustment of resuscitation from cardiac arrest…
In fact, marijuana has over bags of years of medical use in animal history and not even one afterlife has been attributed to the herb. Artlessly because of the actuality that there is no baleful dosage makes marijuana a abundant added applicable and safer advantage for analysis to a array of ailments and diseases. We apperceive that the use of medical marijuana can alter the use of assertive acknowledged decree drugs that accept austere ancillary effects, like adventitious afterlife from overdose, yet these acknowledged decree drugs abide acknowledged even admitting they are abundant added adverse to the animal body.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, added humans died from biologic overdoses in 2014 than any year on record. The majority of those overdoses absorb decree opioids or affliction pills (OxyContin, Percocet,. Hydrocodone, etc.) Since 1999, decree opioids awash in the US has about quadrupled, and so has the amount of opioid overdoses. Abounding of these “pain pill” deaths could accept been prevented with the use of medical marijuana. In 2014, added than 14,000 humans died from overdoses involving assigned affliction pills.
But the absolute tragedy apropos medical marijuana is the United States War on Drugs. It has accustomed the federal and assorted accompaniment and bounded governments beyond the country to yield up aggressive accoutrements adjoin its own citizens. It has justified the militarization of badge armament beyond the country. For a country that claims to be the Land of the Free, we bastille added of our own citizens than any added country in the world. The United States of America has about 2% of the world’s population, but it has 25% of the world’s bastille population, a lot of of them accepting irenic biologic offenders. Over 50% of those accepting marijuana charges. That’s right, marijuana arrests now annual for over bisected of all biologic arrests in the United States of the 8.2 actor marijuana arrests amid 2001 in 2010, 80% were for artlessly possessing marijuana.
And the US aborigine has been basement the bill. According to drugpolicy.org the US War on Drugs amount the American aborigine over $51 billion annually. As it currently already costs over $30,000 to apprehend one being for one year.
If the war on drugs was working, it should accomplish drugs added scarce, appropriately active prices up. In reality, biologic prices accept backward about the aforementioned over the accomplished 20 years, assuming the War on Drugs has had in fact no aftereffect on the atramentous bazaar of actionable drugs. The alone affair the War on Drugs has been acknowledged at is arresting and imprisoning our citizens at an alarming rate. The one abiding way to clean out an actionable atramentous bazaar is to approve the actual affair that has been fabricated illegal. In this way assertive states are already communicable on and abacus millions and millions to their tax revenues every year. While their citizens are adequate the accurate acceptation of freedom.
While some of our citizens are adequate freedom, others that get arrested for accepting marijuana may lose a job or lose accessible allowances or lose their apprenticeship funding. Maybe even worse, they go to bastille and are afar from their accouchement and their family. What aftereffect does that accept on that ancestors and those kids? These accouchement are accepting shortchanged because of an absurd law. Currently over 50% of the American citizenry supports abounding amends of marijuana. It’s time to approve and stop arresting contrarily law-abiding citizens for allotment an assemble that is beneath alarming than all added accessible options. We apperceive that booze kills over 600,000 humans every year and cigarettes annihilate over 1 actor people. As a admonition marijuana has never been attributed to even one death. Yet somehow the authorities say “we charge added data… ” We accept data, bags of years of data. What is absorbing to me is why were we not this alert with booze and cigarettes.
For these affidavit and abounding more, I, Sam Shakespeare, of Boca Raton, Florida abide a able apostle for the amends and use of medical marijuana for all humanity. Personal abandon is a basal right.
