Making a speech in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania State Sen. Larry Farnese said that during his short time in Harrisburg, he’s come to the sad conclusion, that people are afraid of changes, even the most progressive ones.
He’s citing an example of medicinal marijuana legalization. Just as many other supporters of this bill, he sees a great profit from signing the bill into law: it will help medical facilities to ease patients’ suffering, and draw more fonds into state’s treasure, which in it’s turn will allow to avoid such painful budget cuts.
Larry Farnese has sad experience in his life: his father was diagnosed with cancer and had to go through chemotherapy twice a month. Each time this procedure was followed by three days of nausea, vomiting, no appetite, and weakness… Sometimes the medicine has even worse consequences that a sickness itself.
Many doctors, as Larry Farnese said, were supporting the idea of using marijuana in cases with patients who suffer from the unpleasant side effects of the curing process: marijuana, as a medicine, helps against nausea and restores appetite.
Medicinal marijuana can also be helpful for patients with AIDS, because they experience terrible pain in their bones.
Obviously, Pennsylvania should become one of the states, that has already accepted this law, however the whole process should be controlled, and misuse of medicinal marijuana should be punished.
Medicinal marijuana legalization may bring additional money to the state’s budget, and pull it out of deficit.
In any case, this issue worth being discussed in the General Assembly and Senate, and the representatives should have a right to vote for the benefit of citizens.
