Beware of marijuana treatments for pain

How very sad to read that marijuana is OK for pain. You truly do not realize they will not only have no pain, but also no brain.

Our world has completely forgotten that with no pain, there is no gain.

I had pain all my life. So I learned to accept what I had and do all I could in it. I found if I favored my weak leg, the pains were less. I came to choose a higher pain acceptance before I took a pain pill. 

I know these are some extreme pains in need of doctors and pain pills. But anything that removes one’s memory of where they are, who they are, and what they do in those times, should be a red alert; especially when those allowed to have marijuana for pain have hate, anger or depression in them. 

My heart prays blessings over those who are supporting this choice. May God wake you up.
