The Drs: Cannabis Inhaler
The Doctors discussed a new handheld device that could “revolutionize medical marijuana use.” An Israeli company called Syqe Medical has invented a pocket-sized cannabis inhaler. The inhaler will be available this year for home use and the company says it will give doctors the ability to better prescribe medical marijuana to patients. The inhaler is WiFi-enabled so that doctors can connect in real time with patients to administer proper dosing.
The Drs: Medical Device To Regulate Medical Marijuana
The cartridges would be pre-loaded with raw cannabis flowers and then the treatment would be individualized with an automatic doser that creates the optimum treatment just for you. Data would be used to figure out the proper dosage. The Doctors said that the problem right now is that cannabis is all over the place, so this would help control it. Dr Jim Sears said it made sense to him and he was a fan of it.
Dr Drew Ordon said the device allows cannabis to be taken just like any other medication. Dr Travis Stork said marijuana is the only medicine out there that has people eating brownies or smoking something, without truly knowing what the concentration is. People have gotten some negative side effects from using the wrong amount of cannabis.
The Drs: Brain Injuries Cause Decrease In Sports’ Popularity
The Doctors then moved on to share a Doctors Special Report. They shared that because of the increase in speculation over football-related injuries, many people are beginning to question America’s favorite sport. This past spring, a federal judge approved a $1 billion settlement agreement on behalf of retired NFL players who suffered brain trauma from repeated concussions. Brain injury statistics associated with sports like football, soccer, and hockey, have affected the popularity of those sports at both the high school and college levels. Parents are pulling their kids out of contact sports and kids are hardly putting up a fight.
The Drs: More Interest In Drum & Bugle Corps
More kids are getting involved in low-risk activities that are “more challenging mentally, physically, and creatively.” Drum and bugle corps is now the fastest growing youth activity in the country.
The California Blue Devils are leading the way in drum and bugle corps, and the team even has a full medical staff to prevent injuries and improve stamina. All of the student athletes go through a full medical screening to evaluate their overall health. The Blue Devils will defend their national title at the DCI World Championships at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Would you keep your children away from contact sports because of the risk for brain injuries?
