    Yeah.. I have nurofen and I actually start hallucinating. It's kinda funny after the fact.

    Exactly. If you use that argument they should remove Valium and all other Benzos which have horrific withdrawal effects including seizures and death, I've done it, it's like living hell, as well as codeine, tramadol, morphine, oxycodone, psuedoephedrine etc...etc.

    I'm prescribed OxyContin and endone and am dependant. I spent time in a hospital detox earlier this year for benzo addiction (judge away im over it) and 90% of people there were for legal drugs, Benzos, methadone, suboxone, alcohol and oxy! Legal drugs.

    Marijuana has its downfalls, of course but pharmaceuticals can be worse in alot of cases IMO and IME.

    It makey no sensey.....

    I support it. I also think it should be de-criminalised.

    [QUOTE=Atropos;7391551]IMO those against have either never seen someone in this kind of pain and therefore are ignorant about how bad it is or they are utterly heartless. QUOTE]

    I was just coming on to this thread to say almost the exact same thing! Snap.

    I'm on board for it, I would much favour natural pain relief over chemical if I needed it.

    So, SM82, how exactly does it work for you? Do you have to break the law to follow your docs advice, and he has said this 'off the record?'

    Seems ridiculous doctors suggesting things that are illegal (ridiculous as far as the laws go)

    Preliminary studies in mice are actually showing reduction in tumor size when they're given canabis.

    I certainly do support it. I don't have any family members that have suffered horrific pain, like in association with cancer etc, but I would never tell anyone in that much pain that they couldn't take something to ease it. There are far worse drugs that they are probably taking than THC, especially if they are undergoing cancer treatment.

    Totally agree. Drugs like Valium and oxy are just a able to be misused and abused, and are traded illegally in the same way. They also have documented side effects which are at least as severe if not more severe than the side effects of thc.
