Prescription drug abuse a growing problem
#1 Mar 13, 2011
Part of the problem is the stubborn resistance to medical marijuana. The pharmaceutical industry and current law strongly encourage people to use dangerous, addictive narcotics. In many cases, marijuana can help at least as much, and it is NOT physically addictive. I speak from personal experience and have known a number of others who have realized great relief from pot, but had to break the law to do so. Peacefully and quietly relieving the effects of chemo or back pain in ones own home with a natural herb can get one put in jail. Such a policy is immoral, hypocritical, and cruel.

I suffer from constant back pain that surgery helped but did not eliminate. I would be glad to try medical marijuana if it were available. But I am stuck with prescription pain meds. I dont abuse them, but I have to take them more days than not to be able to work and have some quality of life.
I will not risk my job or freedom to try pot at this time though. And it's sad. I can test positive for narcotics and keep my job, but would be fired for much less harmful and impairing marijuana.
