Los Angeles, California
Emergency Medical Services, Pain Management - Medicine - Cannabis Advocate, Marijuana Advocate
As Cannabis legalizes in states across the US, legal protections for Employees, Drivers, Patients, Children, Disabled, New Mothers and even Physicians/providers is lacking. Patients deserve legal protection under the law for medication that is used appropriately. Expert toxicologists will testify that all THC + tests should be treated as intoxication, which is absolutely false. My private medical practice and research has shown us that. Patients should have the right to take medication without being threatened financial or personal demise.
