Medical Marijuana an Alternative Natural Medicine
Dr. Sanjay Gupta admits he was in error about medical marijuana as an alternative natural medicine.
In 2009, Dr. Gupta went on record in Time magazine why he would vote "no" on pot. He has not changed his mind and has apologized for his earlier thinking. He reports that the people has been terribly and systematically misled in this country and he admits he was part of that misleading.
As he sets out, the majority of the research done focuses on the harm done instead of the good that has been done. He states that he simply didn't look far enough nor deep enough to see what other countries have done in their research. He didn't listen to the chorus of patients who informed him that medical marijuana was the only thing that helped them. He took the DEA at its word what set out there was on medical application.
He believes the medical community is irresponsible for not offering medical marijuana as an alternative to their patients for management of pain. Every nineteen minutes, someone in the United States dies from an accidental medical overdose. There is no documentation of anyone every dying of a marijuana overdose.
