Lots of people use medical marijuana to treat diseases, afflictions, and ailments.
Medical marijuana gave me back my mobility and my mental health.
Before I was using medical marijuana, I was regularly distraught and sitting at home with pain in my back and my knees. Before I began a regular daily regimen of medical marijuana, I was taking a handful of pain pills. The pain pills barely helped the pain in my neck and back. I was in a terrible car accident when I was a college student. My friends and I were on our way home from a basketball game when a semi truck driver fell asleep. The guy ran into the back of the car at 70 miles per hour. I was in the hospital for a couple of weeks with a fractured femur that had to be put back together with rods, bolts, and pins. I was in pain and discomfort for several years after the accident. I told the doctor that I was taking a ton of pain pills and he suggested medical marijuana. The doctor sent me to a clinic that specializes in medical marijuana education and cards. The doctor and a clinician interviewed me for nearly an hour. After the initial consultation, I had to provide medical records showing my injuries. A few days later I received a call from the medical marijuana clinic. They approved my case and we’re ready to sign me up for medical marijuana. I had to attend an educational seminar to teach me about the different types of medical marijuana and it was very informative.
