- Con to the question "Should Marijuana Be a Medical Option?"
“I have one patient with rheumatoid arthritis who uses it for pain and, other than getting a ‘high,’ it hasn’t reduced any of her needs for DMARDs [disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs], NSAIDs [non- steroidal anti inflammatory drugs], prednisone or Vicodin.
I see no change in her complaints of pain.”
