We’re on the cusp of a major turning point in cannabis reform. From Canada becoming the first industrialized country in the world to legalize recreational marijuana to Utah and Missouri joining the thirty-one US states that have legalized medical marijuana alongside Michigan jumping on board with the nine others that have gone fully recreational, big changes are underway. Research continues to advance with more and more studies showing proven medical benefits of cannabis while consumer interest keeps growing. The pieces definitely seem to be coming together and we will do our part by continuing to shine a light on how cannabis is helping so many and by providing an open format for the South Florida community to voice their opinions without any judgement.
For our second issue, we have done just that. Inside you will find the inspiring story of Matt Lucas who became paralyzed after a diving injury, a feature on model Kerri Parker who recently decided to treat her brain cancer with cannabis, and a look at a serious brain disorder that many of us know little about – Epilepsy. Then, for those of you have wondered if cannabis may or may not be a good personal medical treatment we explore how DNA testing can determine if you are a good candidate. We also present some helpful tips on taking caution during drug checkpoints, examine how cannabis was used in ancient India, and close the issue with the burning question.
To all of our readers, we want to take the time to say thank you for giving us this amazing opportunity to share our vision of Palm Beach Cannabis.
We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
