Re: The healing side of cannabis, Feb. 16-22.
Just how much proof do people need before they let go of anti-pot propaganda? Like the woman in your featured article, I began using pot for menstrual pain in the early ’70s. I had endometreosis and doctors wanted to remove my ovaries. I was 15! The pain meds had uncomfortable side effects and were no more effective than a few puffs of the herb, so I chose the natural path (and kept my ovaries!). I was concerned about smoking because I have bronchitis, but soon learned that THC has bronchodilator and expectorant properties. It can even help asthmatics. Some folks can’t or choose not to smoke pot and prefer to eat their meds. It’s outrageous that good people are fighting in court over cookies! We are so overdue for a change in attitude about this precious plant. Thanks for covering this issue.
