I don't really care either way tbh.
If people want to use it because they're in pain and it works... go right ahead.
There has to be restrictions on limits and what they can do while under the influence though - like driving, taking unsupervised care of small children, etc.

And this isn't a judgement but it completely boggles my mind that people would be against it. Like I seriously don't get it. It is so less damaging than say Valium or oxycodone or many other pharmaceuticals.

Yes I do for other people. Unfortunately it wouldn't work for me as I react very badly (hypothetically... Not that I would know of course )

Yes, yes I do. Yessy yess yes yes.
This is what happens in my brain when people say they're against medicinal use of cannabis for pain relief.
"I'm against medicinal use for cannabis!"
Gets translated in to
"I don't particularly give a sh!t if they're suffering from agonizing pain or not, I'd rather they suffer than get something that helps them."
And then I kinda wanna smack somebody.

absolutely yes... I know someone that uses it to control pain associated with multiple sclerosis (on doctors advice, off the record).

I just realised that since I can't take opiates anymore, this might just be something I need to do if ever I'm in an absurd amount of pain.

Did anyone else watch Dr Mosley presenting 'Pain, Pus and Poison' on SBS the last few weeks?
It explored how pain killers have been discovered, introduced and evolved through the years. Very interesting series!
THC can be taken in a few forms - it's not like all people who use it are going to be stalking the streets looking to score - then going home to stuff it in their bong!

I'll also add my doctors advice when we discussed the use of cannabis for my pain control and his opinion was that he would rather me take a natural substance which will take away the pain and put me to sleep (as a result of being thrown backwards over a log and being horrifically raped at 17) versus continuously upping my pain relief which I have twice used to take my life when the pain has been too much to take.
At present I can take 2 endone and still be bed ridden, I also suffer many stomach issues due to taking so many medications over the years and last week was diagnosed with scoliosis of the spine so personally I will stick to my natural remedies where possible.
The only problem with legalising it unfortunately will be the problem that as a natural growing substance it will be hard to govern and as a result they will probably never legalise it as they will make more money fining people IMO.
