Re: “On bullshit

Well DOCTOR, you mentioned the main problem, but passed over it so fucking fast, you seemed to hope nobody noticed. But I noticed, and I also know what the biggest issue is with doctors and cannabis: Learning. That's right. LEARNING.
Less than 9% of medical schools in this country even MENTION the ECS to you,your peers, or even the faculty. The facts are, that too many doctors don't know squat, which means that the Endo-Cannabinoid System exists in every human, and even all mammalian body systems and you have no clue. I asked one Doctor, a very nice, respectable man if he thought his patients' ECS was out of balance and he asked if there was a way to test that.
The fact that I presented it to him in a manner that allowed him to ask an intelligent question, meant that he WANTED to learn about it. You, seemingly are stuck with your head buried under so much propaganda and lies, you seem happy to keep quoting the aforementioned lies, and are just fine with making Your patients suffer and even die, in pain.
So, when you decide that do no harm, may mean to educate yourself about a plant that has hundreds if thousands of 'testimonials' from people who are still alive by using it, and who may know a lot more about this plant than you do, currently. So, shame on you, for being a man of letters which reveal you know shit about nature, and the relationship between us and this plant.
There are over 27,000 references in the NCBI database (at MY last count!). why are there so many references to this plant when you say there is no evidence and data? Why is it, that Prof Raphael Mechoulam in Israel, studied it for over 30 years, and discovered and described how and what it interacts with in the body? Did you even know that the govt used YOUR tax dollars to pay him for that?
YOU need to decide when you want to catch up with many Doctors and Professors, who DO know what's up, and the Cannabis Nurses who are working and fighting to change the minds and the level of knowledge, in Hubris filled people like you, and better yet, your patients. May God Bless and forgive you, because some of the patients you have lost, and their families, and Me, may never give you that.
If we weren't being herded into the offices of doctors like you, I would even wish failure on your practice, but sadly, there are still people who believe in you and your less than complete knowledge.
Oh, sorry, I meant your caring and compassion for your patient rolls. JERK.

Re: “Hearne Family Clinic to start certifying patients for Arkansas medical marijuana cards

No need to lecture me, I have been a proponent of cannabis for many, many ills and conditions. My activism didn't open up until I moved to Arkansas. I have been at it, here, for about 4 years. Helped with the Issue 7 thing, but only shared out what I find and know. Make sure you save the doctor locator link, and pass it along. They will post more docs that come out of the shadows, and decide to stand with us, the patients. https://arcannabis.org/doctor-locator/

Re: “Here's a Republican senator speaking out on Trump

These guys are the 'bookmarks' of congress, just holding their place (and their breath!), and hoping they can stay under the radar long enough to get re-elected. I bet they manage it, because the American voting public, is "Deer in the Headlights" frozen in their tracks!

These guys won't talk about a LOT of the new things going on in their home state. I have their newsletters for the past two years, to prove it.

Re: “Saturday's open line

After all this time, of reading Senator Bozeman's eNewsletter with absolutely nothing in it about cannabis, I found what I believe to be the most shocking event I have found, since I moved to the Natural State. I am 99% Sure, I heard Sen. Bozeman vote 'YES' to the Amendment that allows Veterans to discuss cannabis and other alternate health options.

I AM about as stunned as anyone can be!

Re: “A Memorial Day open line

Bruce Westerman Avoiding the Cannabis Treatment Option

From Rep Bruce Westerman:
May 23, 2017
Press Release

"WASHINGTON Congressman Bruce Westerman (AR-04) issued the following statement Tuesday (May 23) upon the passage of a collection of bills benefiting veterans:
The men and women who have fought for our country have made sacrifices on behalf of freedom. That is why we must stand up for our veterans and make sure they receive the benefits they have earned. The bills passed today make meaningful reforms to the Veterans Administration, creates accountability within the agency, and addresses other pressing veteran concerns. We cannot fully repay the gratitude owed to Americas heroes, but these bills attempt to make good on our promise to take care of those who sacrificed for the red, white, and blue.
The following eight bills were passed this week and will now go to the Senate for consideration:
H.R. 2052, the PRIVATE Act;
H.R. 467, the VA Scheduling Accountability Act;
H.R. 1005, a bill to amend title 38, United States Code, to improve the provision of adult day health care services for veterans;
H.R. 1162, No Heroes Left Untreated Act;
H.R. 1329, Veterans Compensation Cost-of-Living Adjustment Act of 2017;
H.R. 2288, Veterans Appeals Improvement and Modernization Act of 2017;
H.R. 1545, VA Prescription Data Accountability Act; and
H.R 1725, Quicker Veterans Benefits Delivery Act of 2017"

This man (and his cohorts) have made it an art, to avoid and deny the fact that so many veterans are finding the relief and treatment they NEED with cannabis therapy for their PTSD, and many other conditions, which they and many other Arkansans suffer from and deal with, 24/7/365.
How he, and Senators Cotton and Boozman can sleep well at night, while parading around in the Emperors New Clothes,is so far beyond me, it's incomprehensible. I did not vote for ANY of these 'business as usual' politicians, and they are ignoring the will of the MAJORITY of their Constituents, while crowing about the other business they do. This is a DIRECT slap in the face of the Great State of Arkansas, and yet everyone applauds them, and pats them on the back, while the elephant in the room, grows ever bigger every day that passes. We have become a state, nay, a country, of Ostriches with our heads buried. I am sad and disappointed, and yet angry that the government koolaid is so sweet and hard to put down.

Re: “Disparate interests of large, small marijuana business hopefuls on display at public rules hearing

The strain that will help you the most, will not be available at your local street dealer. Cannabis therapy for people who are ill, suffering and or dying, requires a lot of trial and error, with different strains, CBD to THC ratios, and even the dosage required. many people use a Sativa during their waking hours, and others might use a strong Indica, to help them sleep all night. This is serious, and truly a medicine for those who have had their doctors run them through the wringer on the pharma poisons, which still kill your internal organs, while they claim the benefits outweigh the risks. I call shenanigans on that noise, because the damage can occur quickly, and like everything else, varies greatly, from individual, to individual. People who like to get high, usually wind up with an indica, so they get their butts nailed to the couch. The biggest problem, is people do not understand what this plant is all about.
Those who take part in the industry in those other states, have much the same rules to deal with there, and in some cases, the fees are much steeper, than in Arkansas. The fee for the medical card, in many states, is upward of $100, or more, like $275. There will be many ancillary businesses that will grow along with the cannabis industry, as evidenced by the 20,000 plus new jobs in Colorado.
