In San Francisco, the United Patients Group, formerly Doobons.com, is trying to set the record straight when it comes to rumors about medical marijuana use. The group is a great resource for those seeking industry news and treatment. For medical marijuana patients, the group offers guidance from start to finish for patients of all ages and experience levels. They help patients figure out every step of the process, from finding a doctor, to finding the best dispensary, to explaining how to use medical marijuana. The company’s website, UnitedPatientsGroup.com, also offers other informative news and advice to patients and caregivers. The group has created a community of medical marijuana patients, professionals and organizations. “Just as Doobons.com has always been, United Patients Group is about helping patients, their families and physicians throughout their journeys with medicinal cannabis,” says John, founder and owner of the company.
Here are the five myths the United Patients Group dispels.
Myth #1: Cannabis is an addictive drug that poses significant health consequences to its users.
Unlike most medicines, an acute lethal overdose of marijuana has never been reported. Furthermore, a recent study by the Institute of Medicine concluded that compared to most other drugs, dependence among marijuana users is relatively rare.
Myth #2: Supporting medical cannabis endangers our children and encourages abuse of the drug.
Dispensaries are even harder for teenagers to get into than nightclubs. Furthermore, studies show that there has been no increase in teenage use of marijuana since medical marijuana was legalized.
Myth #3: More access to medical marijuana for legitimate patients will increase the number of marijuana-related car crashes and fatalities.
There are hundreds of prescriptions and over-the-counter drugs that can cause delayed reactions and drowsiness just like marijuana. Medical marijuana patients are held accountable for being aware of their impaired co-ordination and decision-making skills, the same way any other person using a medicine is.
Myth #4: Cannabis must be smoked in order to benefit from its medicinal components.
There are other, healthier, options for a patient to use medical marijuana. These options include using a vaporizer, eating marijuana edibles or pills, or using oils.
Myth #5: Medicinal cannabis is only used by teenagers.
The United Patients Group has found that many of their website visitors are older patients who have never gone to a dispensary, or caregivers and parents of pediatric patients who are looking for information.
