Do you get high when you take ritalin or many other type of ADHD medication??? Still this is amphetamines on a controled level, but speed and extasy are also amphetamines, does it make all people taking medication junkie???

What I’m saying is not that cannabis can cure all life’s illnesses, you’ve done a great job generalizing though!!! What I’m stating is that cannabis does help in therapeutic way a lot of diseases.

Here’s something taken from the Compassion Club of Montreal website http://www.clubcompassion.org/conditions_eng_ccm.htm , those are the condition that lead to legal cannabis smoking in Quebec, I’d guess Canada too :

Patient might often need other kind of medications, but cannabis is much help for patient impairements.

I think you where raised in a way that state that cannabis is a bad thing, the prohibition in the 1890’s stoped the research with cannabis, and gave a really bad name for marijuanna. They only recover a social acceptance around the 1970’s. And research around this topic is explosing around the 1990’s… They’re still a lot of misconception about this.

Another thing, when you search for cannabis research chronology or timeline, you can see that human did use cannabis for medication purpose since 2727BC. It was actually mentionned in the first medical text (pharmacopoeia). Also, China did import/export of hashich until the 1930’s… It was legal since 1500BC. It was used in medication in the USA around the year 1840. It is one of the oldest drug used for medication purpose. I do believe that cannabis was prohibited only for political reason.

Does cannabis affect my reading? Or is it medicine researcher’s mass hysteria?
