The large majority of doctors refuse to prescribe Medical Marijuana even if it would benefit the patient. That’s because of the pharmaceutical conspiracy to get everyone hooked on Oxycodone and other hard drugs. Things are just starting to turn, and it’s getting a but easier to find a medical marijuana doctor that will help you, but that’s because money is slowly shifting to the “GREEN RUSH”. It’s all about corruption and money. You see, doctors go to school for a long time. They also deal with a lot of crap from stupid uneducated patients. Think about it for one minute, as a doctor you go to school during the prime of your youth, study 24-7, and when you have finished you’re stuck working long hours until retirement. The entire world revolves around money, and doctors think they deserve more of it. The easiest way for doctors to get more is through kickbacks from pharmaceutical companies. If a doctor prescribes a large amount of xyz brand drugs, xyz will pay for the doctor to fly to the Bahamas for a fully-paid all-inclusive vacation “drug related seminar”. The seminar has to exist to prevent any fraud charges, but can be only 1 hour of the 2 week vacation. Other ways doctors make money is using stupid people as guinea pigs. The next time your doctor asks you to try a new drug, be wary. The doctor is getting paid huge kickbacks for taking notes on your reactions to the new drug, which I have seen first-hand. My ex girlfriend was given new birth control pills that the doctor said were supposed to be the Holy Grail with no side effects. Sure enough it was a disaster. He wanted to follow up with her every week, and encouraged her to continue taking the new drug even though it had horrible side effects. Why would he endanger her life for $50 per weekly check-up? More money for him. The drug companies are allowed to pay kickbacks to doctors for their time to fill out forms. The doctor’s can sometime get as many as 3 daily visits from guinea pigs. This is an extra $150 in their back pockets every single working day. This money adds up over time, and the peer pressure from other doctors is overwhelming. They are all involved in the kickback scandals and they don’t want to lose any money by prescribing anyone medical marijuana. Doctors want it to be illegal and not available medically to anyone who needs it. The thing with medical marijuana is that it involves a lot of paper work and the government does not pay the doctor to fill out all these forms. The doctor will then be plagued with more forms since marijuana is so carefully scrutinized. He would just be creating more work for himself with no financial gain. Of course he is going to deny you medical marijuana! He’ll tell you made up reasons why marijuana is bad such as “you cannot measure its dosage like pharmaceuticals.” He’ll say there is too large of an error getting the same amount of drug into your system each dose. This is completely wrong – simply a lie. Many pharmaceutical drugs are manufactured with plants and they can control the amount of drug perfectly right? What’s the difference? There is no difference. Marijuana can be grown with different genetics that are all controlled in laboratories for THC content. No different than any other medication. As for consumption, you can bake with it to attain an exact dosage every time or you can inhale a marijuana cigarette that is controlled by weight. There are no dangers overdosing with marijuana, yet for pain management doctors want to prescribe strong opiates. I am currently using the Duragesic Patch otherwise known as fentanyl transdermal system. This stuff is stronger than Methadone, the drug they give to heroine users to wean them off the junk. Methadone is stronger than morphine and this patch is one step down from heroin. The patch contains enough drugs to last 72 hours (3 days) and if the patch leaks (which does happen) you can soak up enough drugs through your skin and possibly die. This fentanyl patch was even used to commit murder in a CSI episode (television series). The problem with the patch is that it takes a good 5-9 hours for your body to absorb enough drugs when applying a new patch. So you’re waiting in pain for what seems an eternity. Marijuana is instant pain relief when inhaled. The patch also runs out early after about 60 hours depending on the outdoor temperatures and your activity levels. When the temperatures rise outside, the patch will transmit more opiates into your bloodstream making it easier to overdose. You cannot go into saunas or hot tubs and shower quickly. It also hurts my kidneys, making it difficult to urinate, causes dry mouth and seriously horrible headaches. You also can’t just stop taking this drug cold turkey or you’ll go through horrible withdrawal symptoms similar to those quitting heroin. Marijuana on the other hand is more controllable. If you have something important to do like drive a car, you can lower your dose. The patch doesn’t allow for this. Also, the patch transmits all night while you are sleeping, so when you wake up in the morning you have a lot of opiates in your systems, and it’s very hard to get moving. Marijuana can be used to help kill the pain before sleep. Once asleep the marijuana leaves your system after 2 hours and you can wake up refreshed in the morning ready to go to work and be productive. I just want to enlighten you about how evil doctors can be, and to help you get the medical marijuana you need. Since doctors are financially motivated rather than motivated to help those in pain, offer your doctor $200 dollars to fill out the initial medical marihuana forms, and $50 dollars for each subsequent form. A random gift would also help speed along the process like gift certificates to a fine restaurant for “Christmas” or a “birthday”. You have to lower yourself to the level of the pharmaceuticals companies. But there is hope, Moses Znaimer is quitting his career in television to start up a Medical Marijuana company – Cannsat Pharmaceuticals Inc.. If anyone can get this done right, it’s Moses.
