Medical Marijuana Can Be A Huge Help For People In Pain — With A Few Stipulations

Ware, who sees medicinal marijuana as part of a pain treatment plan, not the be-all-and-end-all, knows there are plenty of challenges to be faced when both studying and distributing the drug.

“Cannabis has been touted by many patients over many years as something that helps them manage their pain, and it’s come to us through a different route than we normally learn about drugs,” he says. “It’s a unique situation where we have patients telling us what the drug is doing for them, that from there, we can then study to see if that’s true.”

Everything from the “giggle factor” of stoner weed culture to the legalities of distribution to figuring out exactly how to have people smoke it in non-smoking facilities have proven to be obstacles along the way, but Ware has seen enough results to make him want to keep going.
