Being Denied Cannabis

Being Denied Cannabis with Barbara Gooding. Barbara is a former nursing professional who suffers from a serious pain condition. Obviously we have talked at length about how cannabis can assist in people managing their pain and suffering. In many instances, cannabis can be used to compliment or even reduce the number of pharmaceuticals taken to ease such pain or suffering. Then, on the other hand, we have heard of physicians pushing back on the notion that patients should be able to self medicate for certain issues your cannabis or cannabis-derived products.
