Dr. Michael Hart of London, Ontario stands out among most physicians in Canada. He’s one of the few who has voiced his support for medical marijuana.

A new program introduced in April allows all Canadian physicians to write cannabis recommendations for patients who they think would benefit from the drug. Dr. Hart, among a handful of other physicians, have set up practices based on the treatment. Many physician groups are pushing back against the new rules. Additionally, the Canadian Medical Association and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada are warning doctors against prescribing cannabis.

But Dr. Hart is unphased. He believes the response from these groups isn’t representative of how most physicians feel about medical marijuana.

“I don’t think a lot of physicians are actually against medicinal marijuana. Most are just unsure of how to prescribe it,” he says.

Most doctors are unnerved by a lack of formal testing, says Dr. Louis Huge Francescutti, the president of the CMA. He notes that until large-scale clinical trials are conducted, it’s unlikely that the majority will be in favor of it.

“If the evidence is there, then I don’t think the profession would have any problem getting behind it. Doctors are not very keen to prescribe with a blindfold on,” he says.

Even so, Dr. Hart believes there’s enough evidence already to compel doctors to prescribe medical marijuana over other drugs.

Opioids kill more people per year than all illegal drugs combined. Marijuana has never killed anybody,” says Dr. Hart. Marijuana’s complete lack of overdose risk makes it dramatically less of a hazard than most of the drugs you’ll find in the pharmacies near you.

“I feel comfortable prescribing it because it’s safer than just about every other medicine I prescribe,” says Dr. Hart.

I'm the Founder, Designer and Developer of SpiritMolecule.com. I have a love and interest for the history and chemistry of visionary plants and their interaction with humankind. I believe these plants and their effects to not be Hallucinations, but another form of reality we are yet to fully understand. The reason for this website is to gather as much information as possible to eventually be able to put together some sort of explanation as to What these plants are, Why they exists and How they have these extraordinary effects on Human Consciousness.
