John Morgan: “I want to ask you to help ten of thousands of sick Floridians who desperately need your help.”
They are suffering with illnesses such as cancer, ALS, AIDS, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, debilitating injuries including paralysis, many terminal.
Pill mills are prescribing dangerous narcotics like candy, people get addicted, and many die. Medical marijuana has been proven to give our loved ones relief they need, helping with pain, appetite, seizures and spasms. Unfortunately, Tallahassee politicians refused to vote on the issue last session, they wouldn’t even hear testimony from patients and their families, therefore we will take this act of mercy to you, the people.
If your willing to join this Army of Angels email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for information about how you can get this on the ballot in 2014. We need you. Lets do this for the people. For the really sick people. God Bless you all.
Medical marijuana legalization is about is relieving the pain and suffering of sick people. Physicians are trained to weight the risks and benefits of treatments in individual patients. The United for Care petition leaves the option to choose medical marijuana to the patient and their physician. The petition calls for:
“Physician certification” means a written document signed by a physician, stating that in the physician’s professional opinion, the patient suffers from a debilitating medical condition, that the potential benefits of the medical use of marijuana would likely outweigh the health risks for the patient, and for how long the physician recommends the medical use of marijuana for the patient. A physician certification may only be provided after the physician has conducted a physical examination of the patient and a full assessment of the patient’s medical history.
Cannabis has been used for centuries as a medicine. The United States Pharmacopeia listed it in 1851. Twenty states and the District of Columbia have now again recognized its legal use for certain medical conditions. The US National Library of Medicine lists at least 9195 papers about cannabis in humans. The federal government’s position that Medical Marijuana has no “currently accepted medical use” is in the U.S. is not credible and clearly a legal fiction. The voters of Florida should add their weight to this issue. Florida patients deserve all options that are available in other states.
