The medical uses of cannabis can be seen in Colorado. And, the proof is the increasing demand of this natural herb in the state. People have been supporting the usage of the cannabis for quite a while. But, does the state’s chief medical officer think the same?
How has Cannabis affected the state?
Well, the effects of cannabis on Colorado and its legality are still being debated. But the state’s health officer believes that the pot industry is absolutely secure for the entire state. Dr. Larry Wolk, who is the chief medical officer in the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment since 2013 has recently said that the pot industry and its products are completely safe for the entire state. As per him, everything is going right with the pot industry and the products they are manufacturing.
The recent radio interview in Canada, where the main issue discussed was the legalization of the cannabis; Wolk said that the public health of the Colorado has remained the same since retail cannabis jumped into the business. The main reason is the medical uses of the cannabis that has turned up the demand of this natural herb in a short span of time.
He explained how no dramatic changes have been seen in the past few years. It is just the controlled and legalized form of the cannabis that has made the pot industry better. He even explained about the effects and consumption of the cannabis after any patient is medicated with the same.
Despite the usage, the impaired driving and emergency room visit will always be the main issues that need to be monitored. Wolk explains how no changes were seen in all these three since legalization. But, this doesn’t end here, as he even believes that there is more need to conduct a deep study about this herb. After all, medical use of cannabis is amazing, which can be increased by adding on to the research of the same.
Wolk wants everyone to learn more and even more about the cannabis. It is great if people show interest in the learning of the same and contribute their time and efforts to study more about it.
New Medical Marijuana Program is rolling in
Now as the Colorado has begun the new medical marijuana research licensing program, Wolk is expecting to learn more about the medical uses of marijuana. His positive thoughts on the pot industry and its effects have raised the expectations from this new program. He wants to change the perception of the people who believe that smoking cigarettes are safer than smoking marijuana. And, this program will help him in justifying the statement with relevant data and facts.
Being a trained pediatrician years before we knew about the medical use of cannabis has forced him to change the old information and research something new that can add value to this program besides making people aware about the marijuana.
