Since smoking is a major concern let me start there. The absolute best purpose for smoking cannabis is as an expectorant. For those who are allergic to guaifenesin, the expectorant used in most cough and cold medications, it can be a life saver. It can be the difference between suffocating on ones own mucus and coughing it out and opening the breathing airways. It can prevent pneumonia by allowing the mucus to be coughed out. The other main reasons for smoking are almost instant relief and titration. If one is vomiting, eating is not always possible. Waiting 40 minutes to an hour or longer for something eaten to work doesn’t usually work when vomiting is involved because what was eaten usually gets thrown up, so a few puffs to stop the vomiting can be the best solution for the patient at the time. For many patients a small amount is all they need. Parkinson’s patients report it takes 1 - 4 puffs generally to stop the tremors. By smoking it provides the relief almost instantly. They can titrate, use what they need, 1 puff at a time. You can’t do that so easily when eating something that takes 40 minutes to over an hour to work. Why should an elderly Parkinson’s patient or anyone with ailment that cause tremors or spasms, or vomiting have to wait for relief when it could be instantly? Consuming cannabis by eating food infused with cannabis extracts such as cannabis butter or oil is a very safe way to medicate. It bypasses the hypothalamus, a plus for many patients, for others it helps but does not provide as complete of a relief. Patients learn what works best for them and their own endocanninoid system. Topical use if effective for such a wide variety of issues, as discussed anti-biotic, antiviral, anti-fungal, anti-parasitic, but also for pain, inflammation, gout, skin care, even skin cancer. There are 2 main different types of cannabis oil, one is for cooking, baking and food the other, is often called RSO or Rick Simpson Oil named so after the man who rediscovered it and has been educating the world about it. RSO is made different and kills cancer in several ways. While even the cooking/baking oil can be helpful for pain it take the RSO oil topically to kill skin cancer. For an internal cancer one needs to consume the RSO to kill the cancer, smoking it won’t work, you need a far higher dose than smoking can provide. Some anti cannabis voice are complaining that doctors are prescibing cannabis for "jock Itch" as if people as smoking it for that when in fact Cannabis for “jock Itch” is actually no laughing matter. Cannabis is an awesome anti-fungal, anti-biotic, anti-parasitic and antiviral. I found “NoFungUsAmongUs CannaSpray”, the directions read : Apply topically for Athlete’s foot, jock itch, fingernail or toenail fungus, candida rash, ringworm, eczema, psoriasis, herpes and even oral infections. Spray on and allow to dry. While cannabis is being used for jock itch it isn’t smoked for it but rather used topically. The following effects of cannabis is how it kills cancer Anti-Proliferative - prevents cells from reproducing, Anti-Angiogenic - prevents formation of new blood vessels needed by tumor to grow, Anti-Metastatic - prevents cancer from spreading to other organs, Apoptotic - induces cell to seek it’s own death. But don’t take my word for it. - The video on youtube at the following link will explain http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DttdDOqQMuY

Florida's legislators need to pass legislation for all the medicine for all the patients. The Cathy Jordan medical cannabis Act is the best legislation ever written for medical use and ignoring it does no one justice, especially the 1.6 plus Million patient the Florida State Health Official determined have ailment that are known to benefit from cannabis. I watched the House Appropriations meeting. As Representative Rouson was telling the story about asking his son what he would do if offered cannabis, I was at first pleased, the boy knows the truth. As he spoke further I wondered why a parent would want the government to continue a lie. What does that teach the children? We should be taking the responsible steps accepting the science of medical value, and by legalizing cannabis for medicine, we are teaching that mistakes are made and owning up to it with the truth is the best, not continuing to lie when the truth is out.

End the pharmaceutical chemical slavery in Florida now and you will have many less deaths. Cannabis is one of the original medicines and still safer than pharmaceutical chemicals which kill people daily and have every day in the 100 years they have been used.
