A new study was recently published in the European Journal of Internal Medicine, and the results indicate that most cancer patients today report seeing improvement on their symptoms thanks to their individual cannabis use.
And this isn't the first time that cancer patients have reported seeing a better quality of life thanks to their consumption of cannabis. There are people both young and old who are turning to cannabis for help, whether it's for seizures, anxiety, stress, PTSD, or some other reason.
Unfortunately though, many lawmakers, and others who support their policies, still insist that the government should get to decide who gets to exercise their freedom on this issue. And they want to determine what type of people should and shouldn't be allowed consume cannabis. Because people need to be protected from these “bad drugs,” they say. Ironically, many of those who show this concern for cannabis, don't show the same concern and attention in policing people's actions when it comes to consuming other “drugs” like caffeine, sugar, alcohol, and more.
When consuming cannabis, whether or not a person suffers from cancer, epilepsy, or some other illness, shouldn't matter.
Trying to keep people safe from themselves by policing what they put into their body is not what you would expect from someone who was supposedly trying attempting to defend or support any notion of freedom; that isn't freedom.
All cannabis is medicinal
Even those people who are healthy and who might not be taking it, as they see it--for some strict medicinal purposes--they are essentially still using the substance for therapeutic purposes. And so their use of it could still be viewed as medicinal.
Every individual should have the freedom to exercise their natural rights to consume cannabis if they want to, because no one else, nor any organization comprised of X amount of people, should have the right to collectively infringe upon their freedom simply because they believe they have the right to do so.
