FULLERTON, Calif., March 16, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GT Legend Automotive Holdings, Inc. (Pink Sheets:GTLA - News) issued a statement today reviewing the benefits of medical marijuana.



Medical Marijuana can be used to treat glaucoma, nausea, vomiting, appetite loss and chronic pain. It can provide relief for patients suffering from arthritis, multiple sclerosis, insomnia, seizures and other painful ailments. According to Mitch Earleywine, Ph.D., an associate professor of psychology at SUNY Albany, opponents of medical marijuana mention that other drugs are available to treat these and other disorders. However, Dr. Earleywine points out that people differ; some patients do not respond well to other medications, and may even experience adverse side effects. Therefore, therapeutic cannabis is a proper choice for certain cases.

According to the American Nurses Association, "The American Nurses Association (ANA) recognizes that patients should have safe access to therapeutic marijuana/cannabis. Cannabis or marijuana has been used medicinally for centuries. It has been shown to be effective in treating a wide range of symptoms and conditions."

As of December, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment reported 820 physicians recommend medical marijuana. (Source: http://www.cdphe.state.co.us/release/2009/121709.html). One of which is Dr. Alan Shackelford, who says he "screens his patients carefully and examines them thoroughly before writing a marijuana recommendation." He says "I found that the research and clinical experience of patients with Cannabis as medicine was overwhelmingly positive, found it was a useful thing for them." (Source: http://www.globenewswire.com/newsroom/ctr?d=186779&l=6&a=www.9News.com%2Fnews%2Farticle.aspx%3Fstoryid%3D134581%26catid%3D339&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.9news.com%2Fnews%2Farticle.aspx%3Fstoryid%3D134581%26catid%3D339. "Doctor believes more physicians will recommend medical marijuana" by Lori Obert & Anastasiya Bolton).



Eugene Espinosa, President of GTLA, commented, "CTS has been developed to identify the best therapeutic practices for medical marijuana users. We are firm believers in the use of therapeutic cannabis, as long as the patient has a legitimate recommendation from a doctor, and as long as they are undergoing the proper and therapeutic treatment and support. CTS is here to serve the aching population and to provide such therapeutic support for approved, registered medical marijuana users. From a financial point of view, a center with approximately 400 patients can generate revenues of approximately $70,000 per month."
