What Your Doctor Doesn't Know About Marijuana Could Actually Kill You!

All doctors in states where cannabis is legal should learn more about this plant immediately.

DENVER, Aug. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- When Todd Mitchem's mother was diagnosed with cancer a second time her doctor told her that she had only six months remaining to put her affairs in order.  "That was a terrifying moment," recalls Mitchem. "Her doctor was so convinced of her prognosis that we began to accept the inevitable. Saying goodbye to my mother was going to be the hardest thing I could imagine doing."  At the time Mitchem's mother's doctor asked that she head to Pennsylvania to visit a wellness clinic and to undergo limited radiation.  This visit could potentially extend her life as much as another month. During this time Mitchem's mother found out about the many properties of marijuana, but in her state the plant was still illegal.  Mitchem's mother began growing pot plants in her house and baking them into muffins with the hope that this self-treatment would extend her life a few extra and precious months.  That was six years ago and she is still alive today.

Todd Mitchem of Todd Mitchem Cannabis Consulting and CannaSearch LLC is on a mission to help doctors understand that they must learn about the benefits of cannabis in the body as a wellness medicine.  "Doctors in many states now have a powerful medicine available to their patients if they will simply take the time to learn about cannabis." Mitchem goes on to say that he believes what his mother's doctor did not know about cannabis could have killed her.  "I am not a doctor, but my mother is alive and well because of her cannabis consumption.  While some will argue that this is anecdotal data, my family feels differently."

Todd will be speaking at the upcoming Marijuana for Medical Professionals Conference to be held in Denver, CO September 9th – 11th.  Healthcare professionals from across the US will convene in Denver to hear from industry experts, researchers and doctors and to interact with an array of companies in the cannabis space. 

"Only 5% of Colorado doctors have written Medical Marijuana recommendations, but fully half of adults in our state say they have tried marijuana.  That is the knowledge-gap our conference aims to fill," says Martha Montemayor, conference organizer.  "By combining scientific learning with interaction with leading cannabis companies, attendees will better understand the products their patients use." 

Mitchem is encouraging doctors everywhere to take the time to come to Denver in September to learn about this powerful plant.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
