Medical Marijuana for Bipolar? Getting High is NOT the Object

  • On January 1, laws making legal the use of recreational marijuana went into effect in Colorado and the state of Washington. Fifty-six percent of Americans now favor legalization and regulation of marijuana.

    In the meantime, there are 20 states plus Washington DC where medical marijuana is legal, and four states with pending legislation.

    “Medical marijuana” is something of a misnomer. A physician does not write a prescription for a specific compound at a specific dosage that a patient fills at a pharmacy. Indeed, the physician’s only involvement may be in issuing the requisite medical marijuana card. 

    The card allows users to shop at marijuana dispensaries. It also amounts to a “get out of jail free” card

Working Together to Build an Industry, Not Just a Business

John Davis: Northwest Patient Resource Center

It was 1993 when he was able to get his hands on the document that opened his eyes to the truth of the senseless prohibition on cannabis. This is the day things changed for him; this is when his passion in life was determined; this is the day he came to awaken his activism and join the cannabis policy reform. And 17 years later, he’s still hard at work doing just that and plenty more. John Davis, founder of Northwest Patient Resource Center, is a maverick in his own regard, yet he does so intelligently and consciously and is bringing this industry out into the light. Every word of his is note-worthy, so we suggest you grab a pen.
