More and more, media reports that the medical marijuana (MMJ) movement continues to spread across the country. Recently, Georgia State Rep. Allen Peake proposed legislation to legalize prescribing MMJ strictly to those children who suffer from severe seizure disorders. If passed GA will be the 22 state (DC) to use the drug for its advantages such as easing ails like seizures.
MMJ is prescribed by doctors to those who suffer from cancer HIV/AIDS positive, cancer, glaucoma, cachexia; severe pain; severe nausea; – and, seizures, including those who show characteristic of epilepsy; or persistent muscle spasms, and multiple sclerosis. In Colorado, there are other conditions that are subject to approval by the Board of Health for prescription.
Coloradans continue to lead the MMJ movement with a long list of medical doctors who cognize the positive effects medical cannabis has on disease and chronic pain sufferers. Finding compassionate medical alternatives doctors in Colorado Springs is a first step to relieving symptoms, tolerating aches and enjoying quality of life.
Dr. Bruce Reimers and staff at Medical Alternatives Clinic provide guidance; they educate the optimistic and offer patients an alternative to current treatments that may not be effective. Their office supports a professional atmosphere, touts the importance of making the right choice when regarding health and pain management and offers proper diagnosis to ensure patients are content in their decision to use MMJ.
As GA moves forward in the MMJ movement, other states like Florida, Alabama, Kentucky and Tennessee have taken note of the benefits of medical marijuana. Of course, because of the long-standing view of cannabis and THC, along the way there’ve been proposers as opponents alike, which is likely to continue. But, what’s being discovered by researchers and reported by media has started the people’s initiative to engage in urging talks of the possibility that MMJ may just be beneficial, if used medically intended.
