6. Personal Reflections

The ethical strengths that I believe this bill provides is increasing the equality among relevant persons affected by the situation and social justice. I express this because the bill is designed to help a special group of people in medical situations that could possibly die without the aid of this bill. Some in society us marijuana as a recreational drug which is illegal and the bill is willing to go against mainstream culture and the government to help in relevant situations. The bill is not about legalizing cannabis but demonstrates empathy  and compassion for our children that would probably not live to be an adult.

I believe implementing this bill would assist families in making a positive decision of not having to separate from  supporting family members. Move to another state to receive medical treatment or quit their job. Family and individual stress levels would decrease because they would no longer have to go through the daily agony of watching their love one suffer day after day. I believe this would truly strengthen the social worker’s ability and involvement in providing more resources to the client in need.

I have learned that the ethics of policy making can be very debilitating based on our political system. I now understand and truly believe that policy making is based on who you are and the people you know not necessarily on what the need of society is. This legislative session has taught me that politicians are faced with ethical dilemmas occasionally if not daily as in the case of HB 885. Some simply voted on the bill as a you scratch my back I’ll scratch yours. While others understood the need however didn’t agree to the resolution but did what was popular or contrary to their belief.

This bill became dear to me when I learned about the seizures that the children were experiencing. Immediately I began to thank God for allowing my five children to grow up to be adults with minor medical or physical problems. I would vote on the bill based on one simple fact, “what if it was my child that was suffering?” the ethical dilemma that I would no doubt make the decision to say yes! I can’t say whether the bill would resolve the problem. But I believe its a step in the right direction. I believe  there will be some unintended consequences that I presently can’t put a finger on. However I’m praying and hoping during the time of transitioning many unforeseen consequences will come to light and resolve will be found.

I’m hoping this bill will help society look at how we determine and classify the use of drugs whether for recreation or medical. I believe the uses are totally different according to the intent and purpose. The bill align with my personal value. I truly believe that the majority of our medical drugs comes from some form of plant that has not been 100% proven but we use them to this day. I truly wish that I understood all of the bill and its entirety to make a personalize and productive comment that is beneficial to this problem unfortunately I can’t at this juncture in my understanding.

The insights that  I gained from this process is as a future social worker I’m required to be very assertive, consistent, observant and stay on top of current events. I can make a difference in creating policy change but it requires a non dying effort.

HB 885 didn’t receive the final glow of light but I believe brighter days are still on the arising!

Move to another state to get medicinal treatment or quit their occupation. Family and individual anxiety levels would diminish in light of the fact that they would no more need to experience the day by day desolation of watching their adoration one endure for a long time. I trust this would genuinely fortify the social laborer’s capacity and contribution in giving more assets to the customer in need.

    I have discovered that the morals of strategy making can be extremely crippling taking into account our political framework. I now comprehend and genuinely trust that arrangement making depends on who you are and the general population you know not as a matter of course on what the need of society is. This authoritative session has taught me that legislators are confronted with moral situations sometimes if not day by day as on account of HB 885. Some essentially voted on the bill as a you scratch my back I’ll scratch yours. While others comprehended the need however didn’t consent to the determination yet did what was well known or in opposition to their conviction.
