Medical Marijuana Goes Interstate 420

Colorado-Influence to Other States as Medical Marijuana Goes Interstate 420

Medical marijuana has come a long way since Congress placed it on the schedule of controlled substances in 1972. Today, 20 states plus DC have legalized the medical use of marijuana and has since helped hundreds of thousands of patients.

Colorado has been a pioneer on the med weed front – with its vast list of doctors, finding a dispensary Colorado Springs patients trust may seem daunting, but, our very own Dr. Reimers has practiced medicine for over 40 years –helps many patients- just like you- understand the benefits of MMJ.

And, citizens across the land of the United States are taking notice of the decisions made by Coloradans re: MMJ, its uses, benefits and rules and regulations. Many states like Illinois, Washington and Iowa have begun their initiatives to legalize MMJ as Americans begin to get the significance of prescribed marijuana use. To its proponents, it only makes sense that the wide-spread recognition and approval continue to grow across our communities.

According to the American Cancer Society’s Cancer Facts & Figures 2013, some 1.6M new cancer cases are expected to be diagnosed this year- and many of our friends, loved ones, and neighbors will sadly not make it through the struggle of treatments. But, many- many do win the fight- and those social media group notices celebrating the life and struggle of a survivor are ones who may often benefit from MMJ.

There’s no need for anyone to suffer from pain while dealing with the ordeals of disease or illness. Medical marijuana helps patients who are surviving through cancer, glaucoma, HIV/AIDS, and other ails.

Coloradans have realized- and recognized early on the relief to the struggle MMJ brings to its patrons.
