Medical Marijuana for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

It was all Judy Mendoza could take. She was driving towards their garage when all of a sudden, her 12-year-old son Ryan came out from their front door, ran towards her and threw himself on the hood of her car asking her to just kill him. Ryan decided on that day that he no longer wants to live with his illness: severe Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).  For Judy, it was too much suffering to see her son wanting to die, and she finally decided to do whatever it takes to cure him. She took the one way that perhaps many others would not: medical marijuana.

marijuanaIn her state, the use of marijuana is considered legal when administered by a doctor. Instead of the typical marijuana consisting of dry leaves being smoked, medicinal marijuana comes in a liquid form (a “tincture”) which is then mixed on food or can be directly applied under the tongue of the patient for a more rapid effect.

True enough, after Ryan’s first encounter with marijuana, his condition greatly improved. He was able to go to the beach and just be normal like any other boy of his age. A year earlier, Judy swears no one can take him for he feared that a tsunami might strike him.

Marijuana has been classified as an illegal drug, and so it has never been tested for its medicinal benefits. Dr. Lester Grinspoon, a professor at the Harvard Medical School, says that there’s no guarantee that it can be effective for OCD or other diseases, but it cannot be harmful as it is remarkably non-toxic.

The effect of marijuana to the brain is still a subject that needs to be further assessed. While further testing is still a thing to be done, it becomes irrelevant for those who favor its administration, especially for parents who only wish to end what their child might be enduring for the longest time.

    I have noticed that when I have smoked marijuana that I getsome serious house cleaning done and it also helps me with my depression

  2. Sometimer

    It does help me clean alot as well. organization usually has to be planned out before smoking and I must construct a “to do” list which helps after I smoke, or I become too distracted to follow through with a list. it definetly takes away my physical pain

  3. DDO

    Once a stoner, always a stoner, im simply on the waggon, legalise it dude, no ones ever going to stop smoking it, and no ones ever going to stop growing, because its gold. so…. just do the right thing.

    Medical Marijuana is an absolute nessecity for me. I have multiple sclerosis and with out the few hits I take a day I would be unable to work, care for my children or even something as simple as taking out the garbage. It sucks that I am a criminal for taking the one drug which helps both my symptoms and the progression of the disease.

    I am in Florida and I pray things change soon. If not, I an moving to Denver and will subsist off of fine buds and marijuana Cavier!

    God made all life, including marijuana. He must have had a purpose for it, or he wouldn’t have created it. You can’t tell me that something this good was made purely by chance. The true nature of marijuana is yet to be discovered, till then I’m more than happy to keep experimenting.

    I LOVE MARYJANE I HAVE NO PROBLEMS BUT IT DOSE HELP WITH ME GETING MY WORK DONE AT SCHOOL MIX IT WITH SOME YAYO AND IM OFF ALL DAY AND I THINK IF THE PRESIDENT COULD TAX ITIT WOULD BE LEGAL THE ONLY REASON THEY DO NOT DO IS BECAUSE IF IT WAS LEGAL EVERYBODY WOULD GROW IT SO THEY WOULD NOT MAKE ANY MONEY THATS WHY THEY DO NOT LEGALIZE IT BUT IT SHOULD BE CONSIDERED

  11. eazy rider

    mary jane will never be legalized…would put too many lawyers out of the money. government grows it and gives it to 12 people in the usa on a monthly basis..montel williams being one. They cant legalize it cuz they havent got the smarts to figure out how to tax it, regulate it , and pull our country out of the financial disaster its in. Reminder..over 10 million ppl in the usa smoke daily….one packaged like cigarettes, with a 40$ tax per pack…well, you do the math.

    Alcohol is far more harmful to the body, and I have spoken with numerous people in law enforcement on this subject in particular. If you have a chance, ask a cop when the last time he/she had difficulty with someone intoxicated by alcohol, and they’ll look at their watch, and typically tell you a time from that same day. Ask them the same question about marijuana, and they’ll laugh at you. And look at accident rates..it’s sad. There are too many people pushing for it to stay illegal, and they all have no straight facts to back it up. It’s pretty pitiful when you see so many people intentionally being so ignorant.
