With the soaring costs of medical care, people have been turning towards new and sometimes unconventional modes of treatments. There have been experiments with the use of meditation, Ayurvedic treatments, acupuncture, aroma therapy, acupressure, and many other types of treatments that have been, until recently, relatively unknown in the West. Along the way, people stumble upon new discoveries that redefine our view of certain substances and their efficacy as treatment for certain conditions. One of the latest substances to gain relative acceptance as a cure is medical marijuana Toronto.
It is not so long ago when people looked down on every type of use for marijuana. Smoking ‘weed’ was usually associated with long-haired people who were against any form of authority or established order. But marijuana users have long been extolling benefits they derived from the mild narcotic. They have been saying that it helps them ease depression, and pain caused by certain diseases, many of which are incurable, like cancer. They also say marijuana improves their minds’ creativity. With the coming of the internet, cases where marijuana derivatives proved effective in curing certain medical conditions became increasingly commonplace. Soon the list of diseases and medical conditions marijuana was supposed to be effective for had grown too long for the authorities to ignore. All these discussions prompted even the authorities to take a second look at medical marijuana Toronto.
Soon there came laws which allowed the use of marijuana for the treatment of specific medical conditions. The old regulations even allowed those who can prove a medical need for marijuana to ‘grow their own’ medicine or designate someone else to grow it for them. Soon people were used to hearing about medical marijuana in Toronto. The rapid popularity gain experienced by those who advocate the use of marijuana for medical purposes may have led to some incidents of abuse of this privilege during the early times, which may have prompted the tightening of controls that the Medical Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR) that took effect early this year.
There are still people who voice out skepticism about the use of medical marijuana in Toronto Ontario, but they are increasingly smothered by more voices which continue to speak about its benefits. Now that there is a growing clamor for physicians to dole out medical marijuana prescriptions, doctors are taking another look at the drug and the implications of its use for medicinal purposes. Some medical practitioners have taken to asking for the help and opinions from the Canadian Medical Protective Association (CMPA) to ensure they stay within the boundaries of ethics and Health Canada regulations. As a result of these consultations there are now a few clinics dedicated solely to providing treatments with the use of medical marijuana – all under the rules set by Health Canada of course.
The list of clinics dispensing medical marijuana prescriptions continue to grow. And as if to prove how popular this new medical trend is, applications for license to grow the weed legally is continuing to pile up at Health Canada.
