Parents In Colorado Watch Out! New Laws Have Unleashed A Monster!
Another young patient came to my office with the family alarmed at changes in his behavior: moodiness, anger, impulsiveness, trouble following through on adult responsibilities.
And it all started with the use of medical marijuana.
It was originally prescribed for a pain problem, now long since gone, as the young woman was doing heavy lifting in her work. But the back pain didn't bother her: she was using medical marijuana to cover it up, or so she said.
It was all part of a con game of an addict.
Addiction is complicated. It involved dysfunctional behavior that all revolves around what is good for the addiction. Responsible life activities suffer.\\
Could legalizing medical marijuana increase addictions?

I live on Colorado. In Denver there are medical marijuana facilities all over the place. They almost had one go into the building across the street from dd's school, but that fell through. Now, there is a law prohibiting those places from opening w/in 1000 ft of a school. Anyway, my dh rides the bus to work every day. And every day he hears some loser bragging about how he got his "medical card" to get weed from one of the dispensaries. Those places are a joke at best.
However, I agree that alcohol is a much bigger problem here, as is prescription drug abuse. The medical marijuana dispensary thing is a joke, IMO. And I do wish it was better regulated somehow. Those places are robbed all the time and the crime rate in those areas increases (I should know, I live not too far from TWO of them) I don't know what the answer is, but making it "legal" as it is now isn't really working either.
