I am not sure exactly when it was that my thoughts turned to medical marijuana. I think I felt it when I was a kid. I remember being very excited to see my first doctor, Dr. David, when he came to my house one summer. My mom had just given me and my sister a copy of the new Dr. David’s book about his experiences with medical marijuana. I thought it was a great book.
It was a novel, a medical treatment manual, and it was the one thing that had a chance at making a difference. Dr. David was working not in a hospital, but in a medical marijuana dispensary, located in the town where my sister and I lived. He was also working with a group of physicians to test and treat patients in the hospital. Like most of the other patients, I was a first-time user.
This is the beginning of what would become a fascinating journey as we see Dr. David’s experiences with medical marijuana and the positive impact that it had on his life. He was a great teacher who helped his patients realize that they were not alone, that they could make a difference in their lives. I hope that this book will help patients like me realize that there is hope for us all.
The wilkes barre va medical center has a beautiful library that is filled with books on medicinal marijuana. The most popular book on marijuana to many people is “The Healing High: An Introduction to Medical Marijuana”. It’s not just any book though. The author, Robert L. Wilkes has put a lot of effort into it. “The Healing High” was written with the goal of helping people understand that marijuana is more than a funny story.
The Healing High is something that can help people like me. In a way, in the same way that I read The Healing High, you can pick up the book and read about it. It will not help you understand how to use marijuana properly but it will help you understand the fact that it is a medicinal herb that is safe and effective.
Robert L. Wilkes has put a lot of effort into this book and it shows. Not only is it a story about a man who uses marijuana in a way that is different from the way many of us are using it, it also shows how marijuana is a medicine that can help people with a variety of medical problems. It’s not just for cancer patients or people who have AIDS. It can be taken for everything from insomnia, chronic pain, or even just stress.
A couple of years ago we were lucky enough to review the book by Wilkes. It’s a great read and a great overview on the history of the medical marijuana movement. It’s like reading a history of the internet but without the clickbait. (I should mention that the Wilkes book has a whole section on medical marijuana. It’s a lot of fun.
Its a nice, easy read. Its not something you want to read the whole book to, but if you have the time can definitely recommend it. One of the most comprehensive histories of medical marijuana, its a good read.
Just had a thought. I wanted to read the book again.
One of the most important things you can do with your medical marijuana leaves you free to pursue it.
