Medical marijuana use in Kansas is still illegal but there are advocates fighting to make Kansas the 17th state to allow medical marijuana use. A certain Senator would not even consider hearing about the new bill let alone vote for it. She stated it was a waste of time to even consider it and refused to help improve the health and welfare of Kansas citizens. This new bill others are fighting for would help allow licensed nonprofit groups be able to dispense up to six ounces of marijuana a month and even grow it for those who have a physician's prescription and card given by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. It would help those with cancer, AIDS, hepatitis c, Crohn's disease, MS, severe pain, nausea and more.
Marijuana rehab and treatment centers in Kansas convince people that they are the only solution in making your positive life change and that there are no other options. Not so true. There are non-12 step programs that help people like you to overcome whatever issues you may have and that give you the freedom to make your own choices.
You have taken the time to seek help because of your "addiction" to Marijuana. You might be looking at rehab centers or treatment centers in Kansas and wonder what the best option for you is. Even if you do not choose St Jude's as your program, at least let us tell you one thing. You and only you can make change possible. You are not diseased, and your current circumstances do not need to dictate the course of your life from this moment forward. When you can call a Marijuana treatment center you will most likely talk to a caring person, but with the wrong message, being that addiction is a disease. Remember that no matter what you decide... you can change
