    Medical Marijuana Prescribed to Kids with ADHD -- Sphere News, Opinion and Analysis

    Medical Marijuana Prescribed to Kids with ADHD

    (Nov. 23) -- In California, the state with the nation's most permissive medical marijuana law, some children with attention deficit hyperacitivty disorder, or ADHD, are being treated with marijuana -- a fact that has sparked a heated debate over the move.


    Reliable figures on the use of marijuana to treat ADHD are hard to come by. Though California says it has issued over 36,000 medical marijuana cards since 2004, the state does not compile statistics on prescriptions for specific conditions, like ADHD. And many doctors and patients are reluctant to talk about it. Still, experts say such prescriptions are becoming more common as the number of pot dispensaries and doctors prescribing marijuana continues to grow.

    Marijauna needs to stay illegal for many reasons

    First and foremost it will be regulated by the likes of the FDA and other government agencies, and we all know how that always turns out, as this article proves

    With every debate on marijuana I get my ass kicked because I always bring up children, This is exactly what I had feared. Say goodbye to public education. Can't learn Physics with the munchies and dry mouth. Good Lord. Half my students have ADHD (or rather an ADHD "diagnosis" for their bad manners)

    I always got better grades if I was stoned in college, I thought the profs were hilarious so I would hang on every word. I don't think we should give it to children though.
    And if we did legalize it, it would make it a lot harder for children to get.
    ANd PS your students are probably stoned anyways.:razz:

    I wondered why it took you so long to come up with a URL posting. Now, I know.:lol:


    ...and BTW, I read your article. It has at least one flaw, I think. You say,

    In my locale, and I believe in many others, it is not illegal to smoke marijuana. I think it is also not illegal to be stoned out of your gourd. It is illegal to possess marijuana.
