United Patients Group Conference Panel To Discuss Opiate Dependency, Brain Injuries, And How Cannabis Can Help

When someone gets hurt, chances are they are prescribed some type of painkiller or are directed to get an over the counter pain reliever to treat their injury/injuries. That was the case each time that I got hurt and had to see my doctor, usually for something that required x-rays. Every time they would try to push pills on me, and would scratch their heads when I said that I didn’t need any. ‘I’ll get it figured out,’ I would always tell my doctor, and he would always question what that meant. I would always smile and leave.

 

Cannabis is medicine. That’s a scientific fact. For many decades the medical properties of cannabis were kept secret, and the study of the plant’s ability to help mankind was prevented. Fortunately times are changing, and more and more is becoming known about the cannabis plant all the time. Using cannabis to treat injuries is effective, and doesn’t come with the laundry list of potential side effects that often accompany a pharmaceutical painkiller.

The United Patients Group is putting on a conference dedicated to science this weekend at Dominican University in San Rafael, California. Tomorrow is day two of the conference, and there will be a panel that includes former NFL player Brandon Haw from the Gridiron Cannabis Coalition, former NBA All Star Cliff Robinson from Uncle Spliffy Sports Cannabis, and Brian Keyner who is a former law enforcement officer that is also a brain injury patient. The panel will be discussing the topic of opiate dependency, brain injuries, and how cannabis can help.

Federal drug officials say they are considering removing marijuana from what’s known as Schedule 1 classification, with a decision expected this summer.

The current classification makes it illegal to prescribe and declares that marijuana “has no currently accepted medical treatment use," although 24 states permit some form of medical marijuana use.
