I remember paying only a little attention to the debate as the state I live in was trying to come to agreement over new medical marijuana laws. There was a pretty even cut between pro and against. Those lawmakers who were for the passage of medical cannabis and having cannabis dispensaries used logical arguments. They stated facts about the benefits of medical marijuana. The side that did not want passage of a legal cannabis dispensary based their opposition by fearmongering. I’m not saying what they felt wasn’t authentic or absolutely real to them. But their beliefs seemed more about a form of puritanism more than a referendum on medication. Thankfully, medical marijuana won out. I didn’t realize to these years later just how vital and important that legislation would be for me personally. This is due to the fact that I have experienced chronic pain for the first time. And the dentists are sort of lost on what the reasons I struggle are. After being given a slew of pain medications and anti-inflammatory meds, I started to just get passed on from one physician to the next. So, it seemed more prudent for me to take control of my treatment. My willingness to take control resulted in a wholesale change in the way I feel and what I can do. Medical cannabis products have been a sizable space of that improvement. Additionally, I am now using food as medicine while relying on yoga and other exercises as well. The cannabis flower products that have become my regimen allow me to deal with pain without having to use strong drugs. And the benefits of medical marijuana for me are also added strength and mobility. Not to mention the positive emotional effects I get from medical cannabis treatment.
