"Skyline studio high top Chicago when you look out on the roads and we've got so many great cars really great cruises so many great cruise nights and so many communities that have lots of great cars all over the place we think a team photo maybe the mount Rushmore when it comes to classic cars muscle cars maybe some of those cars that people love in the Ford Mustang is definitely one of those that's up there is one of the superstars of the classic car world and excited to have on the line I got it out only has great cars but agree club to go along with that he's part of the stallions gate Mustang and Ford club got a big event coming up on September fourteen it's Gerry granted Gary welcome to WGN day date I know we've got an event coming up but you've had a lot of events in one of those is of course your connection with Mustang and with the club talk about you personally like what was it it was when you were a kid you first saw one and you're like oh my gosh I got to have one of those how did it start with you well as a matter of fact when I was in that I when I was in high school you know a lot of those cars back in the in the mid sixties and seventies war are really popular my dad was always a Ford man and I guess I kind of related to that too but I ended up buying a sixty five Mustang coupe I had a friend for years it needed a ton of work but shortly after that my wife and I will give you get married and we're trying to save money to buy a house and everything so we ended up selling the car but before I saw that my dad bought one in seventy three and so we took some of the parts off my car which I was going to sell and that's a car rates are currently going to date fifty five red Mustang convertible effect K. code it's actually a fairly rare Carl but it's been a family seventy three well I did and I help rebuild quite a bit of that over the course of those years that's neat where you have that connection the family can actually get to build the car the love the card you're lucky to you know to you there's a lot of pressures on the leash ships out there we all know about the statistics and did it did happen Gerry where you know you have the the sell the car in order to go ahead and start this new life together with you wonderful wife was there any resentment you know were there times during an argument where you felt like Hey you made me sell the Mustang no no not at all because nothing really need a lot of work into focus was actually in all star nightlife and saving money there to get a house can continue on with that but I think a lot of that hello and now runs off of my dad and that's when now he got his car well that's nice is that you guys got together you build the car now let's talk a little bit about the club because there is one thing that I think is a common thread with motor sports enthusiasts we always say there's a love affair with the automobile and part of it even for people who don't have the cars you see this you know streets the communities the cars of the crews that not everybody in fact probably most of the people don't have a great car but they love to kind of walking down and kind of talk with some of the people have got to get some of that back story not only on the origins but also the connections with the cars and what's on it what's not and you know all that kind of stuff and so with the club talk about the stallions gate mistaken for club like you guys got together and I'm sure you know there's a lot of people with a lot of great cars yeah yeah it's gonna take staring gate Mustang import club started back in nineteen nine ninety three and I did during the quote till two thousand but it's actually all for Dan and Mustangs and currently right now we're we're based out of the Palestine area but we have club members that come out like far as outside of Rockford downed Aurora up to greet me and break every place in between we have about ninety members we made once a month like on the second Saturday we go to different venues different restaurants I know we have a lot of a lot of activities to and we have already to the cars from the sixty four all we have to two thousand eighteen so if you like Mustangs in your supporter of that now we see the four club well so there's a lot of different cars in there but you guys have because you know what some of the the current Mustangs are really great some of them are very cool they may not have sort of that classic iconic status but you've got some of those like Shelby cobra dozens there's some really cool cars in there that aren't necessarily sort of in the vintage category where you guys come down on that yeah well you know we have all all makes and models when it comes down to that and H. the effect of club president has California special which is it it's a beautiful car I think it's a two thousand thirteen I think I don't know but it's it's a gorgeous car and we have everything in between and were all cards to the S. and whether they're they're old in the sixties and seventies that we have cards from almost every era of all the Mustangs and now these hedges love cars and love the crews and it's it's a real tight knit groups so we do a lot a lot of stuff together we have a lot of events all during the course of the entire year we need twelve months of the year we get together I'm sure the membership you mention based in Palestine is where you typically me but I'm sure the guys come from and girls right come from all over sort of the Chicago land area I am sure that they live in different places but you guys are converging your bring it all together to have the entire club together for a great show that's happening at Hopkins Ford in Elgin on September fourteenth talk a little bit about the event

three gates open up at eight usually there's guys waiting there what a time we set up and there's a a modest twenty dollar gate fee but that includes a five dollar raffle prize we have a grand prize celebrity gets into that raffle but the the main thing is that a hundred percent of these donations that commingled operations support our troops which we have left over the last couple years at the end of the show which we generate between a hundred twenty five cars hopefully more this year but we generated and written them a check for between two and three thousand dollars every year that goes directly to them so the court doesn't gain any of this other than now who were trying to sponsor well but what's great about it though is that your putting not only you know because a lot of this is a personal situation you get to enjoy the car it's a yes something you have a passion for the entire club does but to be able to put kind of all that energy towards kind of a higher purpose with that with the because specially supporting our men and women in uniform I think is great yeah yeah so it's worked out real well we have a number of about Vietnam vets in our in our club as well as from my

"Doing? Nick Gilio here on seven twenty WGN. We're live in the AllState skyline studio here, eighteen stories about beautiful downtown Chicago here until five and Steve Grzanich has your opening bell at five. And then the great Steve Cochran at six for your morning drive on this Wednesday morning. Wildcard wednesday. Who requested that Glenn with two ends want here? The little Harry Nilsson, right? There you go. Welcome back everybody. Three one two nine eight one seven two hundred is the phone number for talking text. Yeah. So we're talking about zombie comedies. Considering that the dead, don't die was just released this past weekend. And there've been so many fun zombie comedies that were just talking about some of them. Now, here's brain dead. Seven years later, New Zealand upstart, Peter Jackson ever heard of them directed. His third feature brain dead or dead alive in northern North America. Slapstick zombie movie. That's essentially, what would happen if Buster Keaton was horribly maimed after every stunt teaming with future Lord of the rings. Guru Richard Taylor. Jackson. Dallas is the screen with actors in blood guts, and viscera to the point of absurdity the joy in the film comes from just how creative the carnage can be. There's a reason that one scene. Most people have probably ever heard of involves a foyer, filled with zombies zombies, and dude wielding lawnmower as a weapon, the genius of brain dead is how long sequence goes on. And how many insane kills are built into it. Yeah. I saw that movie the first time I saw that movie. Was that alive? As was the title music box theatre at midnight. I couldn't believe what I was saying. I just was like, what the hell is this? I just can't believe that he went on to direct the Lord of the rings which is kind of like a more very prestigious. Well, his first three movies are nuts. Yeah. They're completely insane and meet the feebles. My god. Isn't that a fragile rock? Well, yeah, but it's like it's like kind of an X-rated rated puppet insane. Jeez. Insane. Were you ever fan of the Frighteners? Yeah, I didn't even know it existed. No recently, I love that movie. Now, of course, we have shown the dead, which is I mean, this is the this is the quintessential zombie comedy of all time that not only. Not only works as a comedy. But it's a great zombie movie. I mean it's really funny, and it's also a great zombie movie. And it was it was clear from the from the from the get-go that. Simon. Pegg a-, right. Adore those the John Rowe and paid fantastic respect to it, and loaded it with egg Easter eggs. I mean, the Italian restaurants that they were going to go to his full cheese. Yeah. I mean I mean every scene, we're coming to get you Barbara. Yeah. It's loaded. And I still one of my favorite moments. Ever in a movie is when Sean is walking to the to the to the shop to get the Coronado and, and the, and the and the and the pop and oblivious to the that are kind of walking down the street and the and the mayhem that has occurred and the blood and when he goes to the cooler, and there's a handprint of blood on the cooler and he goes in there to get to, to get the pop out little slip, just the little slit because he slips and blood and just every time I see it. It's one of my favorite moments in the entire movie. So then tell you about the first time I saw no no Sean of that was back in that was four when he came when it came out. Yeah. So my buddy Manny, who is a huge maniac horror fan. So we knew it was coming out. So I had like a preview pass to see it at a screening. So we go the first guy that I think of we saw at the Webster so we go we go we, we don't have a couple of beers beforehand across the street that bar on the corner across the street from the Webster place. And then we go across, and so the movie starts fantastic. I'm already loving it already. And then. The scene where they're, they're going to check on to see if. Shawn's roommate heat Pete, whether or not whether he's okay. So there's that the build up to that, and then they're looking to the car to see if they can get to the car. So that's all happening and then real change, and it skipped real four went to real five. And they were in the backyard pretending to be zombies. And I was like. And so I was like this isn't right. So I got up and I went out to to get somebody from the lobby. Now, it's like dude, I think you you're reels are mixed up. Yeah. Because this thing, just jumped and he's really like, yeah. So he was still in there watching it. I didn't want to see it. You know what I mean? I stepped outside. And so finally, they turn the projector off and indeed. They had screwed up the real the, the, the, the reels. And so they said it would take two hours to two. This was still when they had filmed, this wasn't right? Yeah. So it would take like an hour, hour and a half in order for them to fix it to put it in the right order. And so they gave us passes. So then the second time I went to a screening to see it Manny again, with me we get to that moment where they're checking on the on the roommate, and I'm like, we better this better be okay. Man. I'm telling you it happens again. And then it was fine. But the first time I saw it. I you know, we, we only saw third of it. Wow. That's I mean, that's it's weird to think that as late as two thousand four that was still a problem that could have because a lot of the theaters didn't switch over digitally until couple years after that. Yeah. I figured. I know it's probably because of my age. I just figured it happened so much earlier. Well, same thing happened. When I went to go see told you the story right about twenty four hour party people, where they played out of or to put it out of order and years later, I'm sitting in, I'm sitting in the green mill after hours and the, the woman who was the manager of the night, I saw the movie and the weird thing was, nobody complained I was the only person that I was the only person that came out and said, I think the real because it's a very unusual movie. I mean, in terms of the story, the narratives, very fractured and very believable that, that would be the way told. But nobody that movie would play in there for three weeks. And not one person besides me came up and said, I think the reels are out of order, and they were all my God. Yeah. So Shaun of the dead, the early odds were a boom time for funny and not before them zombies largely relegated to the horror section of video stores. The Romero movies are considered classics, but in terms of modern zombies culturally, all we had were the resident evil games poised to become their own strange, strangely successful, film franchise, then two thousand two brought us director Danny Boyle and writer. Alex Garland's twenty eight days later, the fast, they're not zombies. They're not zombies. They're infected there, people who are infected zombies die and come back to life. That's the actual definition of zombie in twenty eight days later, they're not zombies. I just wanna make sure that everybody knows that. The fast zombie movie arguably, kick started the new wave of zombie popularity and Edgar Reitz, Shaun of the dead, only help the virus spread boasting a loving endorsement from Peter Jackson, hot off the Lord of the rings Sean combined heart humor and a love of the and became a sizeable indie hit that grew and grew in popularity. Once it was video, it's at this juncture, that the, the releases of twenty eight days later, Shaun of the dead is really good onto the dead remake which by the way. I was so negative on that before that before that movie came out. I was like, how dare you, how dare you. And I really liked the remake. It's not nearly as good as Romero's movie, but it's really good. It distinguishes itself. Yeah. And, and I'm also not a fan of fast. But I like that movie. I really liked the remake of the debt and it was that was, you know. I remember during we had used to have my buddies over every Monday night to watch to watch raw. We'd watch wrestling and. USA network showed the first five minutes of the movie, the whole first five minutes of the movie, and I was like, whoa. The little opening opening is unbelievable in all the mayhem in the streets is Sarah Polly's driving around. It was just. Both halves of the John lurching towards critical mass some of the effects were immediate two thousand six Canadian comedy. Fido, which I loved starring. Billy Connolly, basically, adapted to concept from Sean zombies, as pets to feature length. It's beyond this point, especially with the premiere of the Walking Dead in, in two thousand ten. So. I remember loving. The first couple of seasons of Walking Dead. I mean that, that pilot was because I was say was Halloween. It was it was twenty ten. Yeah. It was like Tober two thousand ten. Yeah. Yeah. I thought it was great. And then it just kind of if I've talked about this before by the time, the, you know, the, the whole season with the governor, that was when I was doesn't work. So all right. More comedies here on seven twenty WGN. But right now we got to take.

Because if you have to fly there regularly, it is tiny, get out, which I love because it's like the complete opposite of, of O'Hare, right? And you get there. And like, you know, I've got TSA pre check which like makes they don't even have a separate line. They hand you an orange card so you can show that you're actually TSA's you're going through. So you don't take off your shoes. You still have to stand with two other people generally. I mean it's rare that there's like a real wine going. Okay. It's very nice. But then once you get through the gate. It definitely wasn't an airport that was built for post nine eleven America. Gotcha. It was. Because once you get through, there's no restaurants or anything like all, that's before TSA. It's a very tiny little place. And so they're trying to put more stuff in and they've actually just passed, like a billion dollar bomb. They're going to renovate and rebuild the airport. So it'll be cool ten years from now. Well, so you know what you have to do now, Mr. things the way they were well, no, I do like improvements to you have to start taking a lot of pictures of the city. Okay. Yes, I will start doing okay. By the way, did I mention this two weeks ago? I'm all over the place taken apart. The whole bag is almost gone. I mean it is open like you can see through the building. Big portions of that building now not the tower itself, because at flan marked by, but the old w in the building, right? The parking lot and the front part by our old WGN radio writing the one that was like ripped ripped open. Yeah. I can't wait till that thing is done though. I I'm saving tiny I wanna buy a condo there, so bad. I know you do. Okay. Okay. Gone fancy at airport. Yeah. Now I'm really like I gotta take by. Okay. Kansas City they had a tornado and I found out about it because on Twitter somebody said that it can to the airport. They were telling people they were forcing people like down into tunnels are taking cover at the airport, which is crazy. And so I texted a good buddy of mine who was out of town, but he said they didn't have any damage, but he said, another friend of ours, who works at a company down there did have some damage on his. Property from it. That was pretty crazy. I've got a friend who used to work in radio in town fact, used to work WGN longtime ago is a few years older than me and he teaches at a university, there, probably just outside Kansas City, but I, we're friends on Facebook. So when that tornado came through the storms in the tornado and everything came through he was posting like crazy, you know, all the stuff and everything. And so I was following through that. But yeah, it's the rash of tornadoes over the last couple of weeks, three or four weeks has just been mind bogg-. Seriously? And I spent in everybody's like, oh, when it when it's warm global L this no no, no no mobile climate change means that things are going to get crazier. We're going to have more intense hurricanes. We're going to have wetter maze. We're going to have more tornadoes, that is the more and I haven't read enough on. To know. But I know that they say that it's not about, oh, it's just getting hotter. It's the rising temperature is going to create greater variations in our weather patterns in problems in that way. I think we were way ahead of it when you had the, the person on about the, the moving of the magnetic poles, and I think that has a lot to do with two. Well, that's interesting. Roger, that's very.

Turn to when it comes to depression or suicidal thoughts or suicidal idealization we have on the line squat. Hey, Scott, great to hear from you from eight one five. Hey, thanks for taking my call pay. Michelle. Thank you live here from you. Have you heard anything about hypnotherapy or any reasons why marijuana on the list, I know? The gold tremendously. But. Struggle. I'd be day. And. And. Continues to come in my mind. But I think I'd be selfish. I think to do any about it. But. Throw because all my life revolved around this. Leaping working really chilly. I get up to work, and I don't take care of normal areas 'cause I'm kind of be an isolationist. So. No, it's a lot. No. Absolutely and squad. I'll I'll speak to part of this certainly I have worked with a lot of clients who have pursued hypnotherapy as well as psychotherapy. I am. A fan of combining the two. I find that psychotherapy. There's a lot more research unfamiliar with that supports the efficacy the usefulness of psychotherapy, but but also. Inclined to encourage you to try anything that gets you out and trying something different. That that might move you away from feeling isolated in in your world there and trying something new you know, because. Five minutes dates, and you know, tied times about fire by actor. How long have been saying your doctor this particular doctor for? For ten minutes and enduring the when these feelings started with it before you started seeing this doctor or is it been since your treatment with him. You know, what you know what they've? They've they've they've gotten. It's it's worse. Right. So that's not choice. I have to make I guess which to whether or not you see different treatment. Maybe two. Or seek some some. Yeah. Or somebody new out to offer me different an open mind. I guess. Well, you know. Here that Kathy has. Yes. I certainly always encourage patients to seek a second opinion to get a fresh set of eyes on a problem. And sometimes, you know, it's a relationship issue with your current physician. Sometimes it's six six somebody new has a new approach or different set of lenses that they see your problem. I I don't think it's a bad idea to seek a second opinion. But it's it, you know. You have to keep in mind that the grass is always greener as much as we would like so that you don't get your hopes up on a new doctors gonna fix everything right away. Be realistic. It's it's a chronic long-term problem. And unfortunately, it often requires a chronic long-term solution, and I feel for you. I know it must it must be a hard way to live day in and day out. But please keep keep hope and please keep looking for more solutions. You can't I'm trying you know, I look forward to read as to listen to pay show it's up lifting, and he is the best antidepressant. It is does can you Stalin one thing to hopefully. Mentioned about. Cycle therapies. The quick definition. Yeah. So that's that's what you think of when you think of talk therapy. Right. That's where you're on the couch and the docket sitting on the on the chair, and you talk through the difficulties that you're going through. And that's what I do most of the time. And there's research that would say that the combination of the medication that you're on. And talk therapy is probably the best way to mitigate suicidal thoughts and depression. So I would encourage you to try both. I would absolutely encourage to talk to a therapist psychotherapist. There's a I talked to I taught in talking counselor that not the same thing as well. I would talk to make sure somebody who who's license who is familiar with depression, and suicidal thoughts. Make sure it's somebody who has experience with what you're going through. So that they can relate, and they can help you. Okay. More quickly go. Okay. That's okay. Back to tennis mention. Therapy or something? Yes, exactly electric convulsive therapy. Or better known as shock therapy. They don't do. Obviously might my has. We'll see D And he's doing fine now he's out working here work, but he had to sack. I want. I know the term is obsolete.

So what it does is it actually induces a seizure? So it what it does is it kind of kind of scrambles in some ways, the the neural pathways within the brain. And so for some people it can almost work like it's resetting like when you think about rebuilding your computer, you turn it back on again. And then, you know, things the connections at form the may form new connections, and they may work better than they did before. So just a simplistic way of putting it so for some people who were medication is not seeming to help sometimes alternates that they can be affective. So it's. Yeah. It's that for signed therapy in a few have other medical conditions. You may not be a candidate. Okay. So something to keep in mind, though, this, of course, I'm, you know, depending on what your doctor who you turn to for further assistance and advice and brother and Trident thankfully times squat. It's always great to hear from you. And I'm glad you shared this with us. I know it's not easy to do. And I think he's speak for a lot of people out there who might be thinking similar things. So you helped answer a lot of questions for listeners to thank you. Thank you, Scott. All right. We'll talk a little bit or I take care out. See you on the screen to be well squats later. Quick break. Here will turn we if if anybody else has any questions or comments, of course, the tech green is open phone lines are open three one two nine eight one seventy two hundred before Dr Duffy goes because again, you have patients early in the morning and data Tinus I make her stay late. But I also I wanna talk because this isn't. Line of like one. We kinda get consumed by an idea, you know, our teenagers. I have a son who's fifteen already taking his PSAT. We can set them up for what's gonna be next as teenagers in this college cheating scandal is not just about the idea that oh, we if you don't get into the right school, but whether or not they should be going to, you know, we should be forcing them into college. A great article, I won't talk about popular mechanics about trade schools, and the stigma that a lot of have I remember even in grade school, my eighth grade teacher. Let's call her missus Jordan because that was her name. She she would do well on a test. She would say what do you want to be a bus driver when you get up? We know what there's no -bility in any job. People have somebody has to do the work. And I just end the thing that made us all mad was and it makes me start to cry. Now is at one of my classmates, Erika her dad was a bus driver. So we were all collectively angry. But he with sing was it even we knew. But yet none of us. I think almost everybody went to grade school with still went to college even in our minds knowing that there is so much value in jobs, and they're a great jobs there. There's there's a need for the skilled trades, and we won't talk about that a little bit. When we come back on seven twenty WGN Patti Vasquez.

People who might not know when did you get into explain what sports songs is in. How you started collecting songs? Any songs performed by an athlete coach referee executive in the world of sports in high school players that can be professional players. They can be Olympia.

He's gonna find some real gems. Yeah. Yeah. And so we started this collection over twenty probably nearly thirty years ago. I've been collecting, you know, and it's not because of the Super Bowl shuffle. Even though I should say that since we're honoring the Super Bowl and football. That's right. Yes. But there are songs that were before the Super Bowl and a whole lot after the Super Bowl. And the thing is this that you know, everybody just thinks oh the Super Bowl. Shuffle was was like the first of its kind. And that's just not the case in having you on the show for so many years red realized that the sports songs go back many many many years before the Super Bowl shuffle. They do. Indeed, it's just the Super Bowl shuffle just absolutely captured the imagination of the nation and also its being from the city. You know, it's it's also the one that stands out the most, of course, huge throughout the world was. Yeah. That everybody knows everybody just thinks that's the sport song. Right. Nobody else ever did it, and you will hear it this morning because you can't we can't Wiki we have to play it. You can't do a Super Bowl football themed sports song. Edition without honoring the Super Bowl show. Okay. What the music that? We heard as we were coming back from break is also done by a sports is a sports person. Yes. Indeed, former NFL head coach former northwestern head coach Dennis Green. He had abandoned the nineties called the sunset music band. And he put out a CD in nineteen ninety-five called sunset celebration. That was him on the drums and on the horn was none other than doc severinsen severinsen. Yes. We've heard that. We've heard that cut before. That's good stuff. And Dennis Green. Of course, you know, also responsible for thirty thirty two seconds of the greatest the greatest press conference after after a loss in NFL history. There's are who we thought they were definitely. I love that. You know when that happened? I just I I can't tell you. How many times I watched it? And we have you know, I played the every once in a while. I'll just bust the audio out. You gotta and and it's just devastating going nuts. And it's just classic a classic press conference. So all right. Well, let's get started. It's Super Bowl Sunday. Are you who are you rooting for anybody in particular in the in these two teams, I'm rooting for the chicken wings? You're in for the. Oh, okay. So you're not rooting for people are actively rooting against the patriots as usual. Well, I would rather see someone else when I would have rather seen somebody else in it. But yeah, you know, before we start playing before we start playing the the the songs you obviously you saw that non call against the against the saints to get the Rams to. I mean, that's just that was crazy. I didn't watch the game. But that didn't obviously you couldn't get away from it. As a news story or see the footage. I've seen. Was one of the most ridiculous things. I just I don't know how with instant replay. Yeah. They could've could've missed them. Yeah. Yeah. I mean. They can't. They can't review a pass interference call. Can they that's? Exceptions that. Yeah. I think they can't. I think they they can't actually review a pass interference call. Oh, that's this off season. They're going to probably have chance. The other thing is that you know with the bears how they ice the bears kicker. They'll probably have to talk about when you can call a time out. Oh, that was unbelievable. That was unbelievable. I mean that was just unbelievable though, the whole thing just the way that game ended and the timing of that time out, I'm I'm sitting in the kitchen at this building with Dan Hampton, and etto Brad veg, and Dan Hampton was standing up through his Cup on the ground and said things that you probably know he was so it was like a gut punch. He didn't. I mean, there was that moment. Yeah. Yeah. And then he started the grumbling. I think everybody who is watching. I think everybody who is watching that. And I'm not I'm just a casual fan of football. I don't follow it. But I did have the game on. And now, I was watching it. And I just I was stunned. Silence. Because you can't you couldn't have written it. How that would end it. And the fact that they called the time on the actually made the first attempt, right? I just. I hit the uprights doing going. I just it was crazy. And I'm sure people thrilled that we're bringing this up. But anyway, all right. Let's get let's get to the music. Well, I mentioned Dan Hampton hall of Famer works here. Jeon you hear them on the hand Bobi show. Why don't we play track? One thirty six and nineteen eighty-seven. He put together a band with a couple other bears players, Dave dourson, and Walter Payton and a few hockey players including Troy Murray, and they were called the Chicago six, and they put on a big concert over at what was then known as the UIC pavilion and and during that concert, they put out a VHS video of the concert. And he does the the classic Springsteen song glory days. Okay. All right. This is Dan Hampton. Good. One. So they did a VHS tape..

Medical Marijuana Expansion Bill Allows Cannabis As Opioid Alternative

"Here you know the governor earlier this week signed a Bill to expand the medical marijuana experiment in, Chicago which is a big deal because governor Rauner by and large has not been I don't want, to say he's been a big. Supporter of the program, but he's. Not been big when it comes to expanding it in and he certainly did this. Week and it has to do, with opioid deaths almost two thousand people died of opioid deaths in Illinois in two thousand sixteen seventy two thousand around the country and the governor is going to allow medical. Marijuana to be used in replace of what. In. Percocet vicodin Oxycontin and things like that What do you make of the governor's move Well I think it is an. Interesting approach to thinking about the opioid epidemic the idea presumably is that a significant component of the opioid epidemic reflects people who develop problems with opioid addiction after receiving prescriptions from their physician for. Any number of things that might require opiates and the idea is that if you can use an alternative, to opiates to help manage those patients symptoms perhaps you can minimize some of the addiction and some the. Problem that, we're seeing that a good assumption I mean how big of? A, problem does come from prescriptions. From doctors well that's a really good question I think that we're just really now learning more about How the epidemic has developed and there are some data that show that some people develop. Addiction problems, after receiving, prescriptions but but someday to show that there's really not a lot of. People, in fact there was a recent study that was published looking at people. Who hadn't been hadn't been using opiates and had some kind of procedure and were prescribed opiates and it turned out that less than one percent of the people who had prescriptions developed problems so. It's a little bit unclear if that's gonna make a big difference in the opioid crisis or where all, of this is coming from and I think the thing for me that's so important about all this and. Raising awareness, is the need for us to know more about it we? Need, we really we really need. More research on who's who's developing problems why they're developing Problems and what is their pathway to that issue so even if it isn't going to alleviate a greatly alleviate the opioid crisis when it. Comes to addiction could you make the argument that it's still medical marijuana is still overall a safer and perhaps maybe not more effective but at. Least a. Safer and, effective replacement for these drugs or do we not even, know that yet Well I think, those are two different questions in terms of the safety issues you know. They're they're they're they're really guests from marijuana alone is highly unlikely we've seen it happened probably in. Kids so at their children are, more susceptible to that kind of extreme, problem but so in in that respect perhaps maybe medical marijuana is, safer, the question about efficacy though I think is an unanswered question and that's in my opinion where we need really a. Lot more work there's some good data that shows that medical marijuana helps improve, nausea in patients who are, receiving chemotherapy it helps adults with chronic pain and it helps adults with multiple sclerosis and some of the specificity issues, there's emerging data about its use I but I don't think? We have great data about whether or not Not marijuana's better than an opiate, for say you. Know an orthopedic. Procedure like if you, broke, your bone and had had a, surgery that way so that I think there's a lot of questions about. Efficacy that remain and you know marijuana maybe safer in some ways and opiates but there's there's huge. Problems with marijuana to you can, have marijuana abuse that's a that's a problem there's you know all kinds of issues related to marijuana use, in, pregnancy and its impact on the unborn child or young children so There's just a lot of unanswered questions so those of us who know nothing about it but has strong. Opinions You. Know well this is obviously the doctors were over prescribing this whole. Thing these opioids they're giving about like candy you seem to be making the case that that's not necessarily true I would like to say that, I don't think we entirely know when you look, when you look at when you look at the NIH website when you look at a lot, of reputable websites there is definitely, this contention that a lot of prescription prescribing patterns have led to this issue and I'm, not necessarily refuting that but what I am trying, to bring awareness to is the fact that if we us. If we sort of pivot how we do, things we need to really think carefully about what, we're pivoting to and if we're. Pivoting to the right, thing we don't know a lot about. Medical marijuana yet. And we need. To learn more if we do pivot it's going to be a big. Pivotal seems like right there. Were forty two thousand patients are approved. Now in the medical marijuana program in Illinois last year about two point Three million. Patients received opioid. Painkiller prescriptions so it has the ability to to dramatically expand the medical. Marijuana experiment in this state Yeah potentially potentially a. Could I think. That, that's to, be
