You know that marijuana is good for most things but did you know it is better than menstrual cramps? It’s true! Lots better too and if you don’t believe me let’s read Live Science together:
Women with menstrual cramps in New York state could have a new option for easing their monthly pains: medical marijuana.
The New York State Assembly is considering a bill to add dysmenorrhea — the medical name for menstrual cramps — to the list of conditions for which doctors can legally authorize a patient to use medical marijuana. Under the state’s law, only patients with the specific medical conditions named in the law can access medical marijuana in New York, according to Newsweek. Cancer, HIV and multiple sclerosis are among the conditions already on the list.
Severe cases of dysmenorrhea can be “debilitating,” New York State Assemblywoman Linda Rosenthal wrote in the bill. “Medical marijuana can alleviate many of the painful effects of dysmenorrhea.”
When I first read the word “dysmenorrhea” I thought it was “diarrhea” and was even more excited but beating “dysmenorrhea” is pretty good too. Speaking of, have you been watching The Handmaid’s Tale?
Son of a bitch it’s good.
