Medical Marijuana is becoming gradually adopted as a legal alternative in more and more states. Why? We've always heard (from the mainstream media) that Pot is known as a brain destroying substance that leads to more and more hard drugs. Or does it? This show will focus on an interview with Morgan Hannigan, who runs a health dispensary here in Vallejo, CA. Pot for medically overseen uses is proving to be more and more of a health and wellness benefit.
Morgan and I will discuss some of the uses and benefits of the drug, and how it can help a person who is taking medically prescribed opiods for a specific condition. Often it is taken in addition to opiods; and just as often, it is used instead of these Dr.-prescribed pills. With opiod use damaging or killing thousands of people, we need an alternative.
Cannabis provides such an alternative. It is easy to take and doesn't seem to interfere with the action of other drugs. And in spite of what the media and politicians would like us to believe, the side effects are very rare.
What is the use of a health and wellness dispensary, you might be wondering. Such a place guarantees the quality and quantity of each dosage of cannabis to regulate the safety. And these dispensaries seem to be doing a good job, because there are no deaths associated with smoking pot. And the states that have legalized cannabis to sell are making money!
-Morgan comes on 1/2 hour into the show. Initially, I will review some of the medical literature surrounding the substance.
