    Comparison between marijuana and prescription drugs and which of them is better

    in Culture

    Serious conversations started several decades ago in the United States around whether to legalize marijuana, and we took baby steps toward ratification with California’s Proposition 215 which voters passed by fifty-six percent in 1996, making medical marijuana permissible by law. Though we believed otherwise, medical-marijuana was and is not a new trend.


    Medical scholars have been studying, using and writing about marijuana for a long time, leaving behind hundreds of journals written between 1840 and 1930 documenting marijuana-use as an acute pain reliever; and also to treat emaciation, neuralgia and convulsive disorders as well as nausea.


    Legalizing marijuana will not increase its number of users; it will merely remove the threat of punishment for those who do.  For example, the man or woman who did not care for alcohol during prohibition did not suddenly develop a thirst for it when alcohol was legalized.


    100 people die a day from prescription drug overdose, writes the Washington Post; and in comparison, there are no deaths attributed to marijuana overdose. Yet the drug that allegedly kills 100 people a day is legal, while medical marijuana is illegal.  


    Does this mean prescription drugs are accepted because they are legal? And marijuana is illegal because no one has overdosed on it yet?


    Dr. Sanja Gupta had this to say when making the comparison, “Most frightening to me is that someone dies in the United States every 19 minutes from a prescription drug overdose, mostly accidental. Every 19 minutes. It is a horrifying statistic. As much as I searched, I could not find a documented case of death from marijuana overdose.”

    Curtis Harwell Talks About "Can Prescription Drugs Affect Fitness and Health"?

    in Fitness

    Why does medication use matter?


    When you think about losing fat and gaining muscle, you might not think about the role that your medications play in getting results.


    But in fact, your medication might be affecting — even actively hampering — your progress.


    Here, we’ll look at some of the more common medications, and what effects they can have on your nutrition, fitness, and overall wellness.


    At the end of this article, we’ll give you some suggestions about what to do next.


    Important notes


    First, three important cautions.


    1. We do NOT recommend that you simply quit taking any suspect medications. Always discuss any changes in medication with your doctor and/or pharmacist.


    2. We’re NOT saying “medications always bad, pharma-free living always good”. We know that for many folks, medications can mean the difference between a good — or functional — day and a horrible day. If you’re on medications, you probably have some well-founded concerns about your health. We’re simply offering some information that you may not have considered in making your decisions about whether to take a particular drug.


    3. We do NOT cover all the potential side effects of a given medication. These side effects are just those relevant to people who are looking to lose fat, gain muscle, and/or improve their athletic performance.
