Just a heads up, I'm being condescending and DO NOT believe the world needs to be warned of a pandemic. However, I'm speaking to the doctor as if she deserves the benefit of the doubt so that this is taken seriously. Please read carefully.
As per CBC's story written on January 12th, 2018 by Moira Donovan (http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/nova-scotia/paradoxical-response-to-marijuana-causing-er-visits-in-antigonish-1.4479229 ), "An emergency room physician in Antigonish, N.S., is raising the alarm about a "paradoxical response" to marijuana that can exacerbate the very symptoms some people use the drug medicinally to address.
Cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome involves recurrent vomiting, nausea and stomach cramps. When it occurs, it is typically in chronic consumers of marijuana, meaning those who use on a daily basis for more than a year.
Dr. Maureen Allen, an emergency room physician at St Martha's Regional Hospital, told the CBC's Information Morning the small facility is seeing between three and five patients a month with the syndrome."
The people deserve to know where Dr. Maureen Allen is getting her findings for 3 to 5 people being admitted into St. Martha's Regional Hospital for marijuana related symptoms. As they explain in this very article, it is very important that we do not spread misinformation about marijuana. I believe a doctor stating that she knows of 3 to 5 patients a month coming in with the same violent symptoms due to the use of something should ring some bells. The people deserve the records of these findings and we need to know if we have an epidemic coming with the legalization of marijuana. I have heard tell of many people with prolonged use of marijuana without ever hearing of these symptoms. Ever. However, I will kindly participate in a study for prolonged marijuana use for St. Martha's Regional Hospital. All they need to do is reach out to me.
In the meantime, Dr. Maureen Allen, you need to show us the proof of 3 to 5 people you see a month with violetnt vomiting due to prolonged marijuana use. The public needs to be aware of this possible pandemic. Thank you.
