A Nation Misled – Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s Apology

Neurosurgeon Sanjay Gupta didn’t always support medical cannabis. Lately, he has become a hero to the marijuana community. Dr. Sanjay Gupta is the chief medical correspondent for CNN, reports health and medical news of shows domestically and internationally. In his 2013 article, Why I changed My Mind About Weed, Dr Gupta says “As much as I searched, I could not find a documented case of death from marijuana overdose.” Dr. Gupta goes on to apologize for not listening to the mountains of patient stories whose symptoms improved with cannabis. Once thought of as a desperate cry for attention from potheads, the patient stories were overshadowed by the Drug Enforcement Agency’s schedule 1 classification for marijuana. Surely, he said, they must have some reason as to why marijuana is in the category of the most dangerous drugs that have “no accepted medicinal use and a high potential for abuse. Our country …

A Patient’s Road to Pain Relief : U.S. Pain Foundation Feature

By Ellen Lenox Smith (from her article “Why you should consider cannabis“) Rhode Island: Why — at the age of 57 — would one ever consider turning to medical cannabis? I wondered the same thing after being sent to a pain doctor just before another surgery in 2006. After reviewing my records and seeing that I was unresponsive to pain medication, the doctor clearly had no idea what to suggest, except trying medical cannabis. I was born with Ehlers Danlos syndrome and later also added sarcoidosis to my life. I was living with chronic pain that was preventing me from sleeping, thinking straight and functioning. From birth, I had one issue after another reacting to medications. And after 22 surgeries, you can imagine the horror of all I had to endure and the added pain of never knowing the proper relief my body could have from pain medication. Eventually, a DNA …

Guest Speakers Cannabis Workshops Spring 2016 | Phoenix

We are excited to announce our lineup for our March Cannabis Workshops! The Spring 2016 classes will feature new guest speakers that are united by the theme of Principles & Standards in Cannabis Patient Care. Cannabis is present in almost everything we do, whether we know it or not. Cannabis permeates our lives, from what we eat and where it comes from, to how we use it, build our culture,  and impact the communities that we share with each other. This is especially true here in Phoenix. The Valley is the heart and soul of contemporary Arizona, but is lesser known for its bustling medical marijuana industry consisting of registered patients,  licensed dispensaries, agents, labs, doctors, ancillaries, plant advocates, and legalization activists. Preserving this community is just one of the many reasons why it’s important for new budtenders and dispensary agents to protect the natural fellowship and unspoiled traditions that we have left. The keynote speakers in the Spring 2016 cannabis workshop events: …
