Cesamet and Marijuana question
Why are doctor's so quick to precribe cesamet instead of real marijuana? It is legal in Canada to prescribe medical marijuana. Cesamet is synthetic marijuana which does not work as well as the real thing. It seems strange to me. There are vaporizers so that you do not have to inhale the smoke, and marijuana works so much faster at relieving pain. It also appears that Cesamet has many more serious side effects and is also addictive.. Is it that doctors are trained only to prescribe what the pharmaceutical companies are selling? Can someone help me understand the sense behind this?
