Pot not needed for pain

To the Editor,

Our city was wise to move forward with a moratorium for one year on dispensaries of marijuana, and Jefferson County officials were amiss in the opposite tact.

Mr. Contreras said he is a medical marijuana patient due to pain from an injured knee, and he is allergic to other medications. I too have an injured knee and pain in my groin due to a bad fall. I will never take marijuana, but I do take these natural and non-habit forming pain killers, perluzan, zyflamend, turmeric and boswellia.

Did you know boswellia is mentioned in the Bible as Indian frankincense? And did you know the spice turmeric (curcumin) stops pain and staves off Alzheimer’s disease?

Zyflamend contains rosemary, turmeric, ginger, holy basil, organic green tea, Mu Zhany, Chinese goldenthread, oregano and skullcap.

One more important message I wish to impart to your readers. The American Medical Association wants all medications to require a doctor’s prescription.

Thanks to the responders

To the Editor,

Just saying thanks isn’t enough. So here it goes.

We are so very grateful to have such wonderful county, city, and state police. They went beyond helping us.

On March 15, we were the couple involved in the wreck on Highway. 361 and Bear Drive. We praise God and our guardian angel being right there with us.

We have never been in such an accident as this. We are so thankful for family and friends being at the hospital waiting for us. Praise God, we were in our pickup truck and not our minivan or someone else in a small vehicle. We may not have been here today.

For the deputy who came to help Patsy out of the truck, she was in such pain in her ribs.

For JCEMS for coming so quickly to get us to the hospital. And Officer Zistel being our angel in comforting Patsy.

The staff at St. Charles Madras, thank you for taking care of us.

Scott and Patsy Allison
