Amendment 2, came into effect as Missouri law.
Medicinal Cannabis has been known to reduce the effects of cancer, glaucoma, HIV/AIDS, epileptic seizures and many other illnesses, according to the latest research. Conditions such as these can be extremely hard to live with, so why not give people the relief they need? Wouldn’t it be the humane thing to do?
While Missouri stands as a conservative state, the benefits of medical cannabis may be too significant to pass up. For this reason, this past Thursday, Amendment 2 which Missouri voters overwhelmingly approved on Nov. 6, came into effect as Missouri law. For the first time, Missouri doctors and patients have legal protections under the state’s constitution to discuss medical cannabis as a treatment option.
Now that Voters have spoken, doctors like the pro – medical cannabis Marc Taormina who has been treating patients with inflammatory bowel conditions like Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis have the chance to legally treat his patients with medical cannabis with no fear. “The medical society, to me, should be more constructive than obstructive, now that it’s passed,” Taormina said.
Dr. Taormina also said he thinks medical marijuana should be restricted to adults, but he’s hopeful it will help some of his sickest patients manage the symptoms of Crohn’s and colitis without some of the harsh side effects of traditional medications. https://www.kansascity.com/news/business/health-care/article221763945.html
Under the new law, state-licensed physicians can recommend medical cannabis to Missouri patients with qualifying conditions, including cancer, epilepsy, PTSD, chronic pain, HIV, prescription medication addiction, terminal illnesses and any other medical condition determined to be debilitating or chronic.
New Approach Missouri, the committee that successfully passed Amendment 2, will continue to educate and advocate for patients and veterans, so that Missouri has the most effective medical marijuana law in the country.
