We live in a conservative area and some right wingers are among the last remaining demographics who oppose cannabis legalization
I have the same doctor that I saw when I was just 12 years old. He’s a family physician and specializes in many different forms of medicine. He treated my mother for two decades and was the only doctor who would take her seriously when she said she was worried that she could have Crohn’s Disease. All of the other doctors told her it was irritable bowel disease instead. This allowed her to get on the right medications that actually had real beneficial effects to them unlike the ones she was one beforehand. That’s why it’s so crucial to get a diagnosis right, otherwise how do you get the right kind of treatment plan? This doctor was also smart enough to know what to give someone having a muscle spasm reaction from a nausea medication, although he wasn’t around to tell the doctors at the emergency room this information to get me out of the insane pain I was going through that day. He’s also extremely open minded about cannabis use, something I’m not quite frankly not used to seeing with a lot of practicing doctors in this part of the country. We live in a conservative area and some right wingers are among the last remaining demographics who oppose cannabis legalization. Thankfully doctors like my own are preaching the benefits of medical cannabis use, especially if you utilize other routes of administration beyond smoking cannabis flower products. He tells me that more medical professionals than I realize are secretly supportive of cannabis even if they speak the contrary in real life.
