When Cannabis becomes legal they will lose billions of $$$. Don't believe me ?
I'll provide a few links below so perhaps you can do your own research.. Prove me wrong.
While researching Cannabis I came across a few things that really made me curious. People saying it helps them with mental pain. PTSD, depression, anxiety and sleep. ALL these things are helped with Cannabis but most peole are taking pre-scribed drugs called 'psychotropic drugs' you all know them they are (just to name a few): Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil, Duloxetine (sold under the brand names Cymbalta, Ariclaim, Xeristar, Yentreve,Duzela), Ritalin etc. Drugs given to the masses to make the millions (billions)
At what cost to the public? A HUGE one. Terrible side effects, addictive -people killing themselves. BUT most disturbing to me is in finding out the rise of these drugs -given to our children is on a frightening increase. Many without the knowledge of what damage these pills can do. I would like to admit that I am in fact speaking from experience.
I took pills for depression for years. It was not until this unexplained twitch that I myself started to research and have read that my twitch is nothing compared to the side effects some people get. I can't get angry at my Dr., as these companies have huge marketing programs and pay off many so called experts to promote their product and even lie (proven)
to our Dr.s. Our Dr.s have so much to do without being able to research every drug on top of everything else. I also have been blessed with a Dr. that has always gone above and beyond with me over the years. I know in my heart he would never give anyone anything if he knew it caused harm. No one would. But these companies THEY know. YET the mighty $$$ wins out every time.
Over and over again this book is mentioned. DSM. To hear how they come up with these diagnoses is deplorable! I was inspired to do this toon. (below) I have much more material... sad to admit. IF YOU or your child takes any of these medication for ADHD, depression, bipolar disorder - anything --- RESEARCH it!
AS a parent it is your obligation!
