2017 County Commision Letter recommendations

Sunday, February 12, 2017


Since medical marijuana as legalized by popular vote and/or legislation is not a prescription drug as many people seem to believe it cannot be sold in drug stores.  This is not an evidence-based medicine and should not be referred to as a medicine. It is not supported by any medical association to include the organizations that proponents claim marijuana cures or helps.
Since only 5% of people in other states that have legalized marijuana for medical purposes actually use it as a medicine, I assume many of the same clientele that embraced the accessibly of pills will be in pursuit of marijuana.  I am concerned about the safety of my neighborhood or any neighborhood in the vicinity of a dispensary pot shop.
With all the recent medical breakthroughs does anyone really believe there isn’t a safer and evidenced based alternative that we should be offering our loved ones? They deserve better.
