Read this to know how to get your Medical Marijuana Cards in Buffalo.
Buffalo is the second largest city in the U.S. state of New York and the largest city in Western New York. It rests on the shores of Lake Erie in upstate New York. It has a fine neoclassical, beaux arts and art deco architecture. Landmarks include the 398-ft art deco City Hall, the Frank Lloyd Wright–designed Darwin D. Martin House and the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, a Greek Revival museum with works by Picasso and Warhol.
At the dawn of the 20th century, local mills were among the first to benefit from hydroelectric power generated by the Niagara River. As such, Buffalo earned its nickname,"The City of Light,” due to its early embrace of electric power. It hosts annual festivals including Taste of Buffalo and Allentown Art Festival, as well as, two professional sports teams (Buffalo Bills and Buffalo Sabres), and a lively music and arts scene.
As of 2017, the population was 258,612. The city is the county seat of Erie County. In addition, it is a major gateway for commerce and travel across the Canada–United States border and forms part of the bi-national Buffalo Niagara Region. Buffalo is on Lake Erie's eastern end, opposite Fort Erie, Ontario, Canada. It is located at the origin of the Niagara River and the city is 50 miles south-southeast from Toronto. Various types of shale, limestone and lagerstätten are prevalent in the geographic makeup of Buffalo and surrounding areas, which line the waterbeds. Buffalo sits atop of the Southern Great Lakes Seismic Zone and luckily has not been the recipient of any earthquakes as of late. Buffalo has four channels that flow through its boundaries: the Niagara River, Buffalo River and Creek, Scajaquada Creek, and the Black Rock Canal, which is adjacent to the Niagara River..
The loss of traditional jobs in manufacturing, rapid suburbanization and high labor costs have led to economic downturn and has made Buffalo one of the poorest U.S. cities with populations of more than 250,000 people. The median income for a household in the city is $24,536 and the median income for a family is $30,614. Unfortunately, Buffalo's crime rate is higher than the national average. Luckily, funds from New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo through a program known locally as "Buffalo Billion" has brought new construction, increased economic development, and hundreds of new jobs to the area. This has given Buffalo the lift it deserves. It is home to three medical marijuana dispensaries in the state (as of this writing) and is a major source for those who wish to find products to medicate legally with medical marijuana..

Why Medical Marijuana?
DAMAGED SPINAL CORD WITH SPASTICITY
The spinal cord forms a pathway between your brain and the rest of your body. It works in connection with your brain to control movement, sensation, behavior and a range of unconscious processes.
A damaged spinal cord can significantly impact your quality of life. You may experience symptoms of limited mobility, impaired motor functions, spasticity and reduced sensation throughout the body to poor bowel/bladder control, sexual dysfunction, and chronic pain. When referring to the severity of spinal injury, the term completeness applies. An injury is considered to be complete when the patient loses all feelings and motor functions below the impact point of the injury. This form of paralysis can affect all the limbs of the body (tetraplegia), or it can be restricted to the trunk, legs and pelvic organs (paraplegia). With incomplete injuries are less severe, even minor spinal damage can reduce your ability to carry out everyday tasks for weeks on end.
WHAT CAUSES SPINAL CORD INJURIES?
At last count, spinal cord injuries affect up to 1.1% of the US population, an estimated 347,000 people. Approximately 38% of these injuries are caused by motor vehicle accidents, with accidental falls occuring at 30%. Other contributing factors include:
· Sports injuries
· Medical/surgical errors
· Medical conditions such as:
o Spina bifida, a birth defect in which babies spines fail to develop properly
o Spinal Muscular Atrophy, a genetic condition that affects muscle movement and control.
o Spinal Stenosis a narrowing of the spaces between the spine
o Syringomyelia, a fluid-filled cyst that develops in the spine causing damage to the surrounding areas.
Spinal damage cannot be reversed; modern treatments are largely focused around controlling and managing the effects of the trauma.
HOW MEDICAL MARIJUANA IS USED TO TREAT SPINAL INJURIES
Medical research has shown that medical cannabis holds significant promise in treating the symptoms of spinal damage. Cannabinoids are chemicals contained within the cannabis plant which activate specific cannabinoid receptors located throughout the human body; receptors are particularly concentrated in the central nervous system where the spine resides. Studies show that these receptors play a critical role in regulating pain perception in humans.
Currently, patients with spinal cord damage are only eligible for medical marijuana certifications in New York if they can show “objective neurological indications of intractable spasticity”.
WHAT IS INTRACTABLE SPASTICITY?
Over 80% of people who suffer from spinal cord damage experience some form of spasticity. If you have sustained a spinal injury or developed spinal damage through a medical condition then you may have symptoms of spasticity.
Spasticity impairs your body’s ability to coordinate and control muscular movements. This can lead to:
· Involuntary muscle spasms and exaggerated reflex reactions.
· Involuntary motions throughout the body, including the bowels.
· Involuntary tightening of the muscles.
· Rapid muscle contractions.
· Locked/stiff joints.
As these symptoms worsen, patients often experience severe pain and increasingly restricting motor functions.
If you have any of these symptoms, you may be eligible for medical marijuana certification in New York.
