Why is this crazy?

Having it be synthetic regulates who gets to use the drug. In this case, the intended recipients are people undergoing chemotherapy, not bored college students. They give an explanation as to why they use the synthetic variety instead of growing it. In any case, they probably can give more quality control and a faster production if it is performed synthetically. That's my guess anyways.

The american system for medication production and sales needs modifying. But I think it's more on the order of reducing the prices of medicines people depend on to live, as well as medicines to the elderly (who probably don't have great health insurance or a substantial source of income). American pharmaceuticals with their legal patents force poorer countries to buy their expensive products instead of easily manufactured local/generic medication.

edit:

oh yeah, another point fromt the article:

Same here.

And I agree with mini, I don't think there is anything wrong with using the original for medical purposes.
Envy's lil' miniskirt
So it's not so crazy it just pisses me off.

Just because someone supports medical marijuana doesn't mean they are looking out college students partying habits. Marijuana is a useful herb that helps with all kind so alements. Not just getting high.

I disagree because it's the pharmaceutical industry figuring out a way to charge people assloads of money for a weed. There is no reason for them to make a synthetic version of something that works just fine by itself. They site one of the reasons they site for making this synthetic version is because smoking it is harmful. This is bullshit! There are lots of alternatives to smoking. Despensiaries sell pills, tinctures and edibles off all kinds for people who can't/don't want to smoke vaporizors can also be used.

Marijuana can be grown very cheaply so of course the pharmaceutical industry doesn't want to sell actual marijuana because they can't make much money off of it so they make up some bullshit synthetic so they can charge people more money and hide their reason under the guise that a chemical they just made up is somehow safer than a natural plant that has been used medicinally for hundreds maybe thousands of years.

Of course the FDA has a problem with it. Due to what I've just stated above and I doubt they can get over the fact that marijuana is non toxic and nobody has ever died from it. Unlike many, many over the counter drugs which are also used recreationally.

*I don't care that I've misspelled a bunch of shit, that happens when I'm pissed off*

what other ailments would you use that for? say instead using morphine. Is there any proof of differences between the synthethic and plant grown form? (research studies...i bet there are in other countries...might be interesting to see what they say.)

As far as the fda is concerned, you would still need a few iterations of clinical trials in animals and patients for evaluting treatment of marijuana for a particular ailment before it would be allowed.
Envy's lil' miniskirt
It can be used for many ailments. I have a perscription for my migraines and insomnia. People use to to ease glaucoma, the effects of chemotherapy and various AIDS medications one plus is being the appetite stimulating effect that MJ has on it's users. It has also been used in the teatment of arthurits and depression. On the show Penn and Tellers Bull***t they profiled one of the last existing federal medical marijuana patients who had to smoke several joints a day to keep a bone diesease he suffered from in check. Also unlike morphine, marijuana is not physically addictive.

Let me just say this. I'm really against western medicine and their dependence on pumping people full of chemicals. I haven't been to a western doctor in almost ten years. My grandfather was on several medications toward the end of his life and they wreaked all kinds of havoc on his system. Since then I've been really against pumping people full of man made chemicals that have only been in use for the last 5-20+ years as apposed to something used for hundreds of years.

Personally as someone who has been in the medical area for a few years, i can tell you that surgical procedures and medical imaging play an important role in detecting and correcting certain illnesses. How can 'eastern' medicines treat this? No offense but we weren't living that long a century or two ago. Our lifespan "increased" based on improved healthcare. And guess what happens as a result. More things end up going wrong in our bodies. People with genetic predisposition of heart failure or brain aneyrusms were already dead before their lurking time bomb went off. Now that we're living longer, we're seeing some of these things surface and begin to detect and combat them.

I can understand your decision not to 'believe in' western medication.
But ignoring surgical and imaging. That's just plain crazy.
Envy's lil' miniskirt
Western medicine has it's place for things like you described however I've never needed anything like that so I stick to my accupuncturist and my herbalist for right now. The other reason being is I have no medical insurance and have to pay out of my pocket, so if I do ever need an operation I'm screwed.

that's actually a major problem that still probably won't be resolved any time soon. After the age of 23 (i think) kids can't be dependants on their parent's insurance policies. Since most graduating college students aren't filthy rich, they opt out of getting health insurance since it's so expensive.

It's bad, considering that ER visits are expensive. And if you're there, chances are it's something serious / life-threatening.

then again the US's healthcare system is screwed up. who knows how it'll be in a few years.....

My state will have socialized healthcare, or a version thereof, beginning next year.

The truth of the matter is that the party in control of all three branches of government [as well as a good chunk of the opposition party] is in the pockets of the pharmaceutical industry, and the big HMOs, so they'd sooner see us all die of diptheria than see these companies' profits cut.

The way they treated the boy is more disgusting, I think. Cultural context, people. If that's how they eat, then that's how they eat. And the principal is rather ethnocentric, in a sense. He forgets that Canada is supposedly a multicultural nation, and therefore, the stuff of other cultures are permitted within the country, so long as they do not defy any laws.
