Oscar Albayalde said “medicinal marijuana should come only in the form of pharmaceutical preparation derived from certain active ingredients, but not in its raw form as used for recreational smoking or ingestion.” 

Carreon cautioned that while medical marijuana may be an ingredient in making pharmaceutical medicines, it should not be taken through smoking.

“[Doctors] would not tell [their patients] to take one stick a day. It is either a tablet, a capsule, or a suppository” Carreon said.

 

Hell...I might as well shove it up my ass for all the good it will do me!

Right, so the pharmaceutical companies (and pharmacies) can profit.

After ten years when the world doesn't end, maybe they'll start with the licensed growers and dispensaries.

Legalize the use of marijuana, as it happens in more and more countries, alcohol is much more dangerous. Many connect marijuana with criminals and you are a criminal if it's illegal and you break the law if you use it.

It would provide patients in the Philippines with a lower priced, proven, rational, compassionate, and medically sound option to help with certain constant pain. A step in the right direction, as many nations have already found out.

The Bill now goes to the Senate which looks like it will pass there as well 

If it does, what do you think the chances are that Duterte will sign it?
