  1. Dr. Voth unknowingly reveals just how arrogant our medical/pharmaceutical behemoth has become. To actually believe that you can take a plant that has been evolving in complexity for millions of years and synthesize it in a lab is laughable and scary at the same time. It’s sad how group think and peer pressure has paralyzed the medical industry, they are ignoring what is right in front of their faces.

  2. The "doctor" that continuously calls it "smoking dope" is really annoying. He is personally offended by "dope" and should not be giving his biased opinion, but rather the facts. Thanks.

  3. I have chronic pain that marijuana would help but prescribed oxy and fentanyl so can not take it or i would lose ability to take opiates for breakthrough pain. Been through withdrawls a few times from opiates. Not fun. Thanks big pharma.

  4. I've Smoked for 45 years graduated high school served in the military. I've never been busted or even been arrested for anything and all the lies about pot were spun to keep people of color down. Look it up and by the way I'm white.

  5. The "doctor" and "patient" in the beginning didn't name ANY actual anti-nausea medications in his list. Zoloft is an anti-depressant. He never mentioned Promethazine (Phenergan) which is the front-line treatment and that I use myself, and he didn't mention Dramamine either, which is an OTC and I also use and it's very effective. This guy is just a stoner who wants to get high. Wanting to ski again is not a valid reason to get an Rx for a Federal Schedule I Controlled Substance.

  6. Wendy Gwinner – We have to make sure we have used appropriate first line medications – aka – first you give us money for our pharma, then you get to use whatever to alleviate your suffering.

  7. I tried it in high school and didn't care for it. Now that I suffer from chronic pain due to an injury, I have given it a go for the past few months. I wish I had a strain of marijuana that helped my symptoms but gave me a clear head so I could go to work and hang out with my friends while experiencing some relief. I have tried all kinds of meds. Even codeine did NOTHING for my pain. I'm glad people are starting to wake up to the benefits of nature.

  8. I wasn't abusing opiates but using them for five years, I couldn't wake up anymore my life was none existent after five years I had no trouble giving up the opiates, my stomach complained but I made the transition with only an up set stomach. I was constantly stressed and anxious because I knew that when I sat or when I got up I was literally in tears, all that is gone and I am dealing with the pain much better. The pain doesn't go away, but not having the stress and anxiety goes a long ways when getting up to paint again.

  9. The more I watch the nay-sayers the more I wanna throw a shoe at them. No money in it – so it's bad for the our country. That says it all. Not to HELP people who suffer but to make money. I have numerous health conditions, two being chronic OA and Fibromyalgia. The handful of pills I have to get thru the day (to me) is obscene. I hate to see the long-term effects they will have on my internal organs. Dr. Voth must have been paid some $ to tout about marijuana being so "harmful."
