Pharmaceutical Drugs Versus Marijuana

Everyone has their opinions about pharmaceutical drugs and Marijuana. In my opinion, the Pharmaceutical Companies is the biggest drug dealers in the world. Advil, Tylenol, Codeine, Ritlin and all those other drugs will kill someone if they take one too many. We have seen the proof many times on tv commercials. A new drug side effects sometimes be worst then the problem itself. Then 3-6 months later they have a lawyer saying, ” Have you had a loved who died from…”. The sides effects of different drugs can mask up your current health problem and cause more issues somewhere else. 

For example, as a cancer survivor, most of my medicine I took for 18 years of my life kept me moody and caused post problems to my health. Over-the-counter drugs is legal to buy in the store. However, it is easy for people to  get sprung out on pharmaceutical drugs. There are many cases of death for these types of drugs. They are even putting liquor and cigarettes in community stores like Family Dollars to make people buy more. Cigarettes is another substance that is harmful in every way and they even let teenagers buy. I don’t understand.

On the other hand, it’s funny how the government can lock people up for selling Marijuana. A plant that add more benefits to most people lives than harming them. Please go find a case where someone over-dosed on Marijuana? Marijuana has gotten America attention on a whole new level. They don’t talk about why on the mainstream media. Marijuana has so many health benefits that are saving lives by the day. According to the National Institute of Science, Engineering and Medicine, “25 states and the District of Columbia have legalized cannabis.” (www.nap.edu). Some states allow medical and recreational use. 

It is considered a safe treatment for cancer, AIDS, Multiple Sclerosis, pain, glaucoma and many other health conditions . This is a substance that calms people down and even influence them to pay attention and think more. There are side effects that causes sleepiness, some short-term memory loss, and causes a person appetite to increase. Everyone knows not anything is perfect. However, pharmaceutical drugs have more harmful side effects versus Marijuana.

  1. Well I agree with you 100% about pharmaceuticals. They will always come with side effects but we can’t argue that they do help manage some symptoms and help overcome some diseases. There is so much controversy with what goes on with Big Pharma.
    Marijuana-I smoked it as a youngster and I would never recommend anyone to drive while high and it also comes with a host of mental and emotional negative side effects. If I had to choose between pharmaceuticals and marijuana to treat a medical issue I would always go with the natural alternative. Now choose to use essential oils as much as possible instead of any over the counter or prescription drugs. This is a great topic. I would love to see more detail.

  2. I couldn’t agree more about pharmaceutical drugs. So many are so dangerous and causes more issues! I have been dealing with Multiple Sclerosis for 16 years and the medications are horrible! I just started my blog about this and it has been a great experience. I just started following your blog and look forward to reading more of your posts! Take care!

      1. So true! So many people hate pharmaceutical companies. They are so greedy and don’t want to allow people to get something that will actually help them. Instead they want doctors to prescribe something that causes them to need more prescriptions. It is a crazy world!
