I hesitate to put this post in the health genre, but while we were having a great time in Glenwood Springs, CO we happened upon this Medicinal/Medical Marijuana Center Sign on Grand Avenue. GNS stands for Green Natural Solutions which is the name of the place that legally sells grass. I guess advertising pot as Medical makes it legal. Why didn’t all the drug pushers and traffickers think of that?!?
All joking aside, not just anybody off the street can walk in and purchase grass unless they can prove they are afflicted with a malady that Marijuana is reputed to cure or help. Glaucoma, cancer, HIV/AIDS, cachexia, severe pain or nausea, seizures characteristic of epilepsy, frequent muscle spasms like those characteristic of multiple sclerosis are some of the medical justifications for smoking grass.
I believe the voters of Colorado legalized medical marijuana by a constitutional amendment in 2001? Regulating the substance is left to the local governments.
Don’t we live in a mixed-up country when you can be convicted of a felony for distributing/selling something that has so many medical benefits? While we are at it, shall we attempt to answer the burning question as to why alcohol is legal but pot is not! Gotta go folks…..feel some muscle spasms coming on 🙂
