Our journeys are painful and to others it may seem that we are exaggerating, but more often than not we only tell them what we think they can bear. Yes, if our doctors could share our pain, if only for five minutes, just so they could have some understanding of what it takes to live on our bodies. Then again, I don't think I could do that to someone.

Patients Out of Time (POT) is the only medical cannabis organization authorized by the AMA and ANA to offer continuing education credits to nurses and doctors who are interested to learn about the endocannabinoid system. Their website is www.medicalcannabis.com. There are a number of testimonials by patients, nurses, and doctors. One nurse was discussing the observation that patients using pharmaceutical opiates for pain management often quit completely or significantly reduce their intake of opiates when they have safe, legal access to quality cannabis.

The DEA is currently attempting to place CBD oil in their most restrictive Schedule 1 category in spite of the fact that it does not produce any kind of high and it is safer than aspirin, naproxen sodium, or ibuprofen.

The irony here is, of course, that big Pharma pushes many mind altering addictive substances such as opiates, benzodiazepines, and amphetamines to name a few. These drugs have their place and I respect that, but patients, doctors, and nurses ought to have the choice to use the drugs that work best in a given situation.

Please consider supporting Patients Out of Time. Anyone who is willing to go further may wish to support the Drug Policy Alliance, DPA, and Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, LEAP. Drug Laws and the Drug War have not reduced the problems we have with addiction, but they have greatly increased violent crime and disease rates, much as alcohol prohibition did during the 1920's. Prohibition only prevents certified practitioners from using medicines responsibly.

I'll stick to making sure I do what I can and no more, don't overdo things in one day. Spread tasks and chores over week. Take my tablets at prescribed times.
