Your Doctor," Drug Reps" And You
Posted 30 August 2011 - 02:14 PM
I got to thinking about just how many "drug reps" a doctor may see in a month! So many reps all handing out free samples and pitching their drugs.
How many "MMJ reps" does your doctor see a month?
Guess what, folks? He sees a "MMJ rep" every time you go in to see your doctor!
YOU are the MMJ rep!
Take in a study or two with you every visit. Doesn't have to be on your ailment! Just something "interesting" that you thought he might like to see! Or if you have a bone-headed doctor stuck in the 1940s, just send the abstracts to him, a few each week, for MONTHS!
A Canadian survey of doctors showed that MOST of what the doctors knew about cannabis came from their patients! Remember that cannabis is a prescription drug in Canada- federally legal!
With my List (that first link in my sig), you become the "drug reps" for MMJ! (Many studies have news articles about them, so you can read the easy stuff and let the doc deal with the PubMed version! ) Let's level the playing ground! Educate your doctor and give "big pharma" some competition!
This WebMD article is a good place to start! (see sentence #2)

WebMD is so dang respectable and well-known that I use the articles often. Got them in a little file.
I have also slipped in small "book markers" with "Want MMJ Studies? Run a search for Granny Storm Crow's List" and slipped them into books on cannabis at the local community college library. lol
A couple of dispensaries now have a print-up of the list (2 packages of paper!)for their customer's use. Patients learn that cannabis can actually treat "Uncle Charlie's diabetic retinopathy" and then tell "Charlie"!
A "smoke Shop" in Canada did them one better, the owner set up a computer and printer set to the List. He says it brings in customers who want to educate their doctors.
The owner once told me that one man was literally in tears when he found there were several PubMed studies that proved that cannabis could improve his condition and confirmed his own observations that cannabis helped him- his doctor had told him it would worsen his condition and to stop immediately.
The poor man was torn between what his body "told" him and what his doctor said! The doctor got a big handful of studies next visit!
How you use my List is up to you, but please use it!
