Since its Nurse’s Week, I thought, I would bring up several topics that I am faced within the realm of my profession. This poem is stated from a Nurse's point of view, and in no way does it express
my beliefs, or meant to incite the actions of others.

Medical Marijuana Cannabis

Marijuana Cannabis

Is it pure mental bliss

After taking an inhaling hit

A relaxing euphoric trip

I know I’m spreading it on just a tad too thick

For many Americans they feel they are getting the short end of the stick

My number one topic on my wish list, yes it was handpicked

I once danced so gracefully as a Prima Donna Ballerina

Dancing on stage at Madison Square Garden arena

Daily braces to walk has brought my existence down a peg

My wonderment was always found in my arms, my body, my legs

Struck with MS at a very early age

For me, no more Pique Turns, no more Fourette Turns on stage

That plant I require in grounded form, resembles seasoning Sage

However, I’m not at lawful age

Feeling the discouragement of my parent’s relentless and winless political rage

Congress refusing to pass laws in my state to have medical marijuana usage placed on page

In some states, this war of words has taken a devastating toil

To pass laws to have marijuana used as a medication converted to Cannabis Oil

Should we suffer our symptoms in silence

When so many Americans’ voices are now in compliance

A plant to be used for debilitating conditions, surely, is a gift of science

To assist when limbs that refuse to move or just quit

Why must some of us continue to deal with this

I have hopes and dreams to conquer, now I’m left with stage longing reminisce

Can’t move to California, or Colorado

Dealing with the ramifications of a concept to grasp, if you must know

Father was just promoted and paying for my medication using the back-door method mold

Sadly, for the accumulating medical bills, our first home was sold

Should loving parents be the blame for such an unfounded risk of a silent claim

Seeing a loved one suffer due to Congress’ waiting game

Legalize…hum what’s my opinion

I’m the writer, my beliefs are not deemed, this is God’s dominion

As a Nurse

Yes, I do see your hurt

As a woman of society, I hear your loud cries

In some states it’s legal, but not mine, the echoing parental whys

Drug screens

Failure designed by several hidden means

My biggest concern

The ratio is meant to only burn

Trust me, I am not speaking out of turn

Listen and Learn

THC lowest threshold

The salvation to some as medical gold

Amphetamine, Methamphetamines, Barbiturates, Benzodiazepines, Marijuana, Cocaine, Opiates, Phencyclidine, Methadone, Propoxyphene

Ten Panel Drug Screen

Not fair as it may seem

I’ve witnessed in testing patients, and have seen, not meaning to sound bias or mean

THC’s discerning threshold

The American choice to reap what they sow, strictly uncontrolled, medically consoled, yet DEA patrolled

Lowest element to behold

First ratio tester from a panel glimpsed, your concept to employment has been sold

Leaving you out in the cold

Positive tested

No employment for you will be invested

Other drugs placed on a higher rating scale

Urine tested falling under Head or Tails

Used a week ago

However, on the job, drug addict on the down low

Fair is, as one would think fair does

For the medical benefits, I give my blessings with love

Some say science has not caught up with this controversial wonder drug to use as such

However, look at all the elements it is known to assist, various medical conditions pretty much

As usual, the Houses of Congress moves in no rush

Pharmaceutical Companies stocks come to pass

Telling American people and your medical elements to go away with your wicked forecast

Utilized to reduce nausea and vomiting during chemotherapy, improve appetite in people with HIV/AIDS, muscle spasms and reduce chronic pain

From my standpoint an excellent argument to go against the grain

For the sake of argument it’s a plant from the start

Chemical compounded into a medical work of art

Upstanding, pay taxes, some would admit it’s their daily choice to smoke

Most seem to say it does not makes you steal for it, sell your body, or even go broke

Wake up America here is your chart that defines your deterred employment dreams

All found in the urine of your Drug Screen
