Canadian Companies Consider Medical Marijuana Coverage for Employees

The hosers up in Northern Lights country gave us Alex Trebek and now they are showing us a blueprint for a competent approach towards harm reduction strategies, dealing with dangerous drug epidemics and logical marijuana policies. Canadian Broadcasting News recently reported that major Canadian employers are considering covering the cost of medical marijuana for employees. Bernie Bros. are quick to point out the necessity to lower prescription drug cost and point to Canada as a source of inspiration in overhauling the domestic healthcare strategy. I’ll take “Things the USA could stand to learn from Canada” for $1000 Alex.

Every single day the citizens of the United States of America lose a bit of themselves to the harsh and blatant disregard for equality, wellbeing, safety and sincerity extolled from the highest ranks of government. Not a single stitch of patriotism is used when weaving such disjointed, incoherent, and extravagant lies to the American people. We are led by ignorance and at war with intelligence, common sense and scientific fact. Teetering on the brink of complete irrelevance America is weak and feeble.

Canada’s glorious deeds circle their brow. Their arms know how to wield the sword as well as carry the cross. An epic history of brilliant deeds and a willingness to defend homes and rights is celebrated. All of this can be found in the translation of O, Canada carried out by the Parliamentary Translation Bureau. Justin Trudeau may want to consider making us pay for a border wall to ensure our bold American stupidity, bigotry and hate doesn’t make its way into his home of the free and land of the brave.

Having a job is nice. Access to health insurance through that job is very nice but isn’t guaranteed. The ability to have the cost of cannabis subsidized by health insurance provided through a job is unfeasible in America. Despite being legal in some form of medical or adult use in 26 states and Washington D.C., cannabis is deemed by both church and state to be a demonic, dangerous plant not worthy of consideration as a replacement or substitute for any number of dubious drugs pushed on children and adults by our healthcare providers.

In the same CBC News report Solomon Israel wrote,

“From the perspective of benefit plan sponsors, there’s strong medical evidence that medical marijuana is effective for three specific conditions, according to Cubic health’s Mike Sullivan: spasticity in multiple sclerosis patients, nausea reduction for chemotherapy patients, and relief of chronic pain.”

There are certainly a number of other conditions for which cannabis provides unprecedented and immediate relief but at least there are people willing to admit the medicinal benefits of nature’s oldest medicine. The acceptance by top lawmakers that cannabis is a threat to the nation is absurd. Their base reasoning has been disproven time and time again by military veteran’s using cannabis in place of prescribed drugs and children ridding themselves of debilitating seizures.

Some may say that it is becoming increasingly difficult to continue defending America as the greatest country in the world; good thing we’re stubborn too. As long as Baby Huey and his babysitters are running things won’t get any easier. This isn’t an ideal situation but we’ll come out on the other side of this better off for going through it.
