Why does it seem more accepted to use Botox to treat symptoms of Cerebral Palsy compare to Medical Marijuana?
A few years ago, it seemed to be a "trend" to treat spastic CP with Botox injections. To me, this was an insane concept, to go inject poison into ones body for a temporary fix. There are some people that would make the same argument of using Medical Marijuana for the same purpose.
To me, they are the some, Botox just seems safer since it is legal and a doctor administrates it. These two drugs are not cures and it troubles me that most of these studies have been conducted on children and not adults. I would rather suck a weed pop, every now and then just relax, nothing is a "cure".
