Back in my younger days, I used to be very different than I am now.
- I used to be someone who was totally against cannabis products.
I always thought that cannabis was wrong in any form and for any reason. I guess I was just raised by the way. I thought that cannabis was just a bad drug and that people who used it were going down a path of destruction that would just not end well. I even used to go out with another group of people who protested against cannabis use and the legalization. I remember going and protesting once in my local government office when they were thinking about voting to legalize it in our state. I just did not think that anyone should have cannabis. I didn’t care whether it was medical cannabis or recreational cannabis, either. I was just strictly against it. But then one day I ended up getting into a skiing accident and I ended up having lots of chronic pain because of that. I now have chronic pain on a daily basis and I really hate it. I was having to take all kinds of different medications to try and deal with the pain, And I hated the way that they made me feel. I did some research and I ended up finding out that medical marijuana does not have the same side effects that prescription drugs actually have. I actually ended up trying it and I got my medical marijuana card. Now, I use medical cannabis whenever I need any pain relief. I don’t get any side effects from it.
