Report: At Least 1 in 20 Colorado Arrests Are Marijuana Related
Medical Marijuana Forum Hosted by Multiple Sclerosis Resources of CNY
The Multiple Sclerosis Resources (MSR) of Central New York hosted an educational forum on medical marijuana Wednesday night in East Syracuse. The forum was in support of a medical marijuana bill - AB 7347 – that was passed by the New York State Assembly this year, but that failed to gain any traction in the state Senate.
In a letter about the forum, Board President of MSR Bill Jackson writes that "it is a shame" that MS patients are forced to risk arrest to purchase drugs which help them to live and work comfortably.
"Many of our clients already are using marijuana to lessen pain, deal with spasticity and many other physical issues," wrote Jackson. "Keep in mind that MS is not the only disease that marijuana shows results in, but it can help cancer patients, those affected by AIDS, and certainly for persons at the end of life."
Dr. Sunil Kumar Aggarwal, a graduate of the University of Washington School of Medicine, spoke at the forum Wednesday night and presented his research findings on just how effective marijuana can be in helping those with MS.
Why should any patients be denied the option of medical cannabis?
