Mess with you!: Cannabis is a psychoactive drug that will mess with your brain. Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

A 44-year-old member asked:

Will I stop getting all medical treatment when i'm under hospice care?

Different care: Since the goals are comfort, you will get ant treatment for comfort. On the other hand they are not concerned with treating cholesterol, or mild high blood pressure. Those treatments will not improve comfort or change outcome. The care is very specifically designed to improve quality of life.

In my opinion: And my opinion only, our profession is overrun with bureaucracy, over regulation, administrative burdens and oversight that leads to the frustration i pick up in your statement. Also, seems everybody has an opinion, whether well educated or not. Tell you what, if hippa would allow, you should spend a day with a doctor. After you do, it may be easier for you to understand the crap we put up with.

A 43-year-old member asked:

Are natural cannabis and medical cannabis different?

Dr. Stephen Kibrick

Not really: Cannabis is a plant, which is cultivated in many forms. Its potency varies with the THC content of the particular strain of marijuana plant, and how it is ingested. Medical marijuana is obtained via a doctor's prescription and is legally obtained at licensed dispensaries in states where medical use has been deemed legal. It is not chemically different from "natural" marijuana.
