Breaking The Stigma One Patient At A Time
It is a well known fact that cannabis has been criminalized for the better part of modern times. This has led to many campaigns aimed at demonizing cannabis to the general public. Generations of people being told that marijuana has no medicinal value. That if you use marijuana you will turn into an unmotivated, barely employable person.
A few generations of this propaganda being taught by parents and grandparents to their children and grand children has lent itself to people being uneasy when discussing cannabis use either recreationally, or as a medicine. Only through teen rebellion and new sources of scientific data has the attitude towards cannabis began to shift. In Oklahoma we have been breaking the stigma legally since 2018 when house bill 788 passed via initiative petition.
This means that the decision was taken out of the hands of lawmakers who were content to ignore the citizens of Oklahoma and their call for another option for those of us who suffer from ailments that have proven to have a positive response when treated with cannabis. Many of us have been working to end the stigma associated with cannabis well before the 2018 passage of 788. We never aimed to force our perception on others. Instead we listened to the arguments against cannabis legalization and used sound logical arguments to challenge those naysayers to abandon the teachings of their forefathers by researching things for themselves and forming their own opinions based upon that research.
Now that we have found ourselves on the forefront of the medical cannabis industry we feel it is our duty to provide a place to find the most up to date research in the field of cannabis as medicine. Due to the federal stance on medical cannabis we must place the following disclaimer on any page that may paint cannabis in a medicinal light.
