+EdwardGlen Posted July 16, 2011 Report Share Posted July 16, 2011 Each citizen should play his part in the community according to his individual gifts. - Plato http://420spotter.com/906/thoughts-about-a-community-of-medical-marijuana-users.html All members in a community of medical marijuana users want to be healthy. They advocate for wider use of medicinal marijuana, because they see it as a useful, but often overlooked remedy. To a large extent that way of thinking has been reflected in comments made by the surgeon general of the United States, Dr. Regina Benjamin. She recently spoke with Eryn Brown, a reporter for the Los Angeles Times. She was in Los Angeles on March 4, 2011, in order to receive an Image Award from the NAACP. Dr. Benjamin knows a good deal about the establishment of clinics. Her clinic in Louisiana was destroyed and rebuilt three times over a period of ten years. Her contribution to each rebuilding process helped to earn for her the attention of the NAACP. The nonprofit agencies that distribute medical marijuana serve many of the same functions as a clinic. Those people who work at such an agency must be familiar with the various disorders that can be treated or alleviated through use of medical marijuana. Each of those individuals can contribute to the health of the entire community. Here is what Dr. Benjamin has said about the extent to which a community is responsible for its own health: “We can’t look at health in isolation. It’s not just in the doctor’s office…If you have a health community, you have a healthy individual.” Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
