I appreciate your gradual and cautious acceptance of #MedicalCannabis. There is research out there.@JordanTishlerMD @Veriheal @Peter_Grinspoon my go tos for info.Virginia made strange laws and no product.Vermont where I moved from it was all legal.
My neurologist said she’d rather I vaped Cannabis than take opioids. I agreed. Now about Doctor note 📝 Yearly + $50 to the State saying I have extraordinary pain from Multiple Sclerosis.Every Year. I have Pain Every Minute.
Respectfully You do not deal with the pain, the MonSter, Every Day. In Waves, going under, coming up for air in gasps. You, Doctor who I Know Cares a Great Deal about fighting MS, You Help Us Deal with Pain. You Help Us. Don’t think 👍👎🏼 on Pot.Think Which Strain is best 4 What?

The name Marijuana has a “reefer madness “ association.
I’ll use the name Cannabis.
Cannabis has THC and CBD along with other therapeutic properties I find very effective for relief of Pain and Misery of #MultipleSclerosis Unfortunately Federal government says it’s like heroin 🤨
In Vermont, it was initially legal to buy #MedicalCannabis with a $50 card and note from my Doctor, a Board Certified Neurologist who said she’d rather I use Cannabis than use #opioids for my extraordinary pain and suffering. Every year $50 and a note saying I have MS.
Meanwhile, down at the Dispensary, the nice bud tenders laid out the 3.5 gram packages. $50 each. I was stunned. “A nickel sack?” The kid didn’t even know what I meant. I relented, bringing cash because the bank wasn’t allowed to be used due to Federal regulations.

Even with the problems with this study
It’s the only kind of research allowed
Until the Government accepts people in Severe Pain need research studies in Every State USA 🇺🇸 regarding
decent pain medication options besides street #Opioids
Developing specific ratio of CBD TO THC
@JordanTishlerMD could design a study.
Legislators need to throw out their hunger for taxation,and investment options. @HHSGov needs to support Patients with Severe Pain to obtain affordable #MedicalCannabis and eliminate state rules like yearly Doctor’s note saying we have pain.

1️⃣ Glossary: Bring your own cannabis #BYOC
Or Cloud ⛅️😎
#patient experience is not scientific by itself
I agree retrospective studies will not be easy
Especially with so many patients buying Street #cannabis
Now #medicalCannabis legalized in some states
Can studies ask?
2️⃣ Are you Using?
Does it Help?
Are you giving blood for research anyway?
Why not screen for levels?
Correlate with Symptom relief?
I have recently had 12/10 to 15/10 pain.
That does quite a number on my well being, mood, sleep, function, relationships. A Silent Scream 😱
3️⃣ Is my brain MRI the only way to monitor my
#MultipleSclerosis ?
Or is a more Comprehensive approach needed?
My Cervical spinal cord was sliced as if by a knife.
Spasms continue, haze in my Optic Nerve persists.
If I Slept better, would that lead to better disease management?

What a debate! Well done, @KansasStateFair!

We're proud to support @gregorman, not only the Independent choice, but the best choice to lead ALL OF KANSAS into the future.

And thank you to everyone from #teamorman!

ICYMI: Our recap ⬇️ #ormanforkansas #ksgov #ksleg
To open, Greg lamented the two decades of decline that has occurred at the hands of Republican AND Democratic administrations:

"Kansas used to be a leader—a place that other states looked to for inspiration. But now we're a cautionary tale, and both parties are to blame."
With 27 years of experience turning businesses around while giving employees the confidence and stability they need to build their best lives, Greg is ready to do the same for Kansas.

@ShawnMcGuirk @CFAMMcan @mcgillu @santecannabis @trinafraser There is still reluctance in prescribing #MedicalCannabis, and there is lack of point of sale (still will have to be by mail), excise tax and HST/GST upcoming, lack of drug plan coverage.
