Weed and Pharma

imgres-1Sundays article in the NYTimes titles Pets on Pot tells us a lot about how THC (weed) is an incredible pain reliever and attitude adjuster.

Our dog injured himself the other day.  Not exactly sure what happened but he had obviously injured his leg and was in pain.  I took him to the vet and she prescribed an anti-inflammatory medication and an antibiotic.  He was fine a day later but as you should do with yourself is you have to complete the prescription.

In the last few years I have become more suspect of the pharmaceutical industry.  Perhaps it has to do with the ads they run on TV.  When the ad gives you the benefits of taking something and then moves into a soothing music over the voice of someone telling you that by taking this medication you could get this and that and this and that and on and on and on and on, it is almost comical if it wasn’t.

Edible products sooner or later will be available everywhere not only for humans but animals too.  They will be used for anxiety, pain and a slew of other ailments that the Pharmaceutical industry has made products for and promoted for decades.  They are not excited about weed induced products changing their bottom line.  We will see lobbyists pouring into the Government to try and stop the positive realities of cannabis.

In the end, we will be able to buy products at our local liquor store or perhaps 7-11 but as always the amount of legal bills that will be paid by big Pharma to stop this from happening will be just lining legal pockets because eventually we will get there.

I am betting on it.
