Marijuana

Marijuana or Cannabis is as controversial as it is well known on a global scale.  Today, scientists and biologists alike are still studying cannabis plants to determine whether THC, the main psychoactive ingredient in Marijana and CBD, can be as medically helpful as some in the general public believe.  Right now, people are using CBD, or Cannabidiol as an herbal supplement to help manage pain and epilepsy.  Some medical practitioners do, in fact prescribe medical marijuana for these purposes and more.  (See our BLOG “Can Marijuana Lead Non-Smokers to Cigarettes?“)

Things to Consider as an Employer

For Employers and those running a business, maintaining a drug-free workplace is a number one priority.  Some employers implement these policies due to the nature of their specific fields.  Perhaps they run a company with heavy machinery – requiring 100% sobriety from all of their staff.  For others, as a responsibility to provide safe working conditions for their employees to thrive, Employers implement a drug-free policy for the benefit of the company workforce.  As Marijuana laws are changing from state to state, it’s important to consider whether a drug-free workplace is important to the functionality of one’s business.

Medical Marijuana

Medical Marijuana is not a cure for any known condition.  However, it’s modern-day medical applications mirror the apparent reason for its use in other cultures hundreds of years ago – for pain management.  Millions of Americans are experiencing Chronic Pain. However not every Doctor today recommends Medical Marijuana for every ailment. One’s medical condition may qualify for medical marijuana treatment if recognized by the state of residency.  If that’s the case, one can, in fact, seek to receive Medical Marijuana as an avenue to treat the condition.

Is Marijuana a Gateway Drug?

The National Institue on Drug Abuse mentions that Marijuana can be addictive and that it is a gateway drug.  A gateway drug is a drug that when used, increases the probability of the user furthering their drug use, likely seeking more harmful, potent drugs.  THC is the predominant chemical responsible for Marijuana psychological effects. The more THC consumed, the more likely you are to become dependent. Though further study is being conducted, many have claimed that marijuana usage leads to further opioid use.  Is there any truth in this bold statement?

A study by The Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia reported “ Adults who use alcohol, tobacco, and marijuana were 323 times more likely to use cocaine than adults who used none of the gateway drugs” 

It’s interesting to note that most Marijuana users, in fact, do not dabble in more harmful potent substances.  Many statistics are still being formulated as scientists and those in healthcare continue to research the long term effects of Marijuana
