Disease

A disease is an abnormal condition that affects the body of an organism. It is often construed as a medical condition associated with specific symptoms and signs. It may be caused by factors originally from an external source, such as infectious disease, or it may be caused by internal dysfunctions, such as autoimmune diseases. In humans, "disease" is often used more broadly to refer to any condition that causes pain, dysfunction, distress, social problems, or death to the person afflicted, or similar problems for those in contact with the person

Hello everyone, I hope that whoever is reading this is enjoying their day or night. In this post I am going to review some of the benefits of legalizing marijuana. I do not intend to change your minds about what you already believe about marijuana, but I do want to open your eyes and hope that you see that marijuana has some potential to be beneficial when applied correctly. http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/phar.1187/full “The Pharmacologic and Clinical Effects of Medical Cannabis” above talks about the effects of medicinal marijuana. In the abstract it talks about several pharmaceuticals, medicines that have been derived from cannabis and how they are used not to cure diseases, but to help people deal with the pain and nausea that comes from them. This application is used with people who are typically going through chemotherapy. There are other applications in people with multiple sclerosis. https://www.cancer.org/treatment/treatments-and-side-effects/treatment-types/chemotherapy/chemotherapy-side-effects.html From “Chemotherapy Side effects” above it talks about the side effects of cancer. There are three main side effects of chemotherapy. The first side effect is the damaging of blood-forming cells in bone marrow. The second is damage to hair follicles. Finally, damage to cells in the mouth, digestive tract, and reproductive system. The last symptoms mention are what cause the patient to have so much pain. The patients typically can’t eat solid foods so they eat softer items like apple sauce and oatmeal, and one of the side effects of marijuana is an increase in appetite. This is one reason for the backing of medicinal marijuana legalization in the United States. These people suffer every day from a disease that has many forms, and some of those forms are incurable. I’m not saying that there aren’t alternatives to marijuana. There are definitely other ways to go about dealing with appetite and nausea. The doctor might prescribe other drugs, but these drugs vary in their effectiveness. This is due to everyone having different bodies. This causes some people to take multiple drugs, and they might not find a drug that works for them. “These can be prescribed for you to take before, during, and/or after chemotherapy. As you can see there are many different medications that your doctor can prescribe to control these symptoms. It may take trying a couple different medications before finding the right match for you.” This is a quote from http://chemocare.com/chemotherapy/side-effects/nausea-vomiting-chemotherapy.aspx titled “Nausea, Vomiting & Chemotherapy.” The reason I put this quote into this argument is because it helps to prove that drugs have different effects on different people and everyone is different. As I mentioned earlier there is also another use for medicinal marijuana. That use is for people dealing with Multiple sclerosis. Multiple Sclerosis is a disease that attacks the brain and spinal cord, central nervous system. According to “Mayo Clinic” the immune system attacks a protective sheath that covers nerve fibers and causes communication problems between the brain and the rest of the body. This disease cause the nerves to deteriorate or become permanently damaged. According to “The Therapeutic Potential of Cannabinoids for Movement Disorders” it states that oral cannabis extract is effective in treating multiple sclerosis related spasticity and central pain or painful spasms. This helps because it does show that marijuana can be useful to treat pain, but in the article, if you take the time to read most of it, it does mention that marijuana has been tested on other diseases to see the potential benefits, but the results have come back with little correlation. I mention this because I do not view marijuana as a cure. I view it as a drug that has potential to relieve pain and suffering. https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/multiple-sclerosis/symptoms-causes/syc-20350269 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4357541/ I would like to thank everyone that has taken the time to read my opinion. I hope that you have seen some of the potential benefits of marijuana and have opened your eyes to something that has potential to help people.

Do you know, that we actually have our own version of baseball here in Finland? It's - I am not flying to you - our national game. It's called Pesäpallo, which is a straight translation of Baseball. The funny thing about the game is, that the basic idea was giving the kids an idea of throwing a hand grenade. :D :D :D
