To think that just around 4 years ago I would have been denied access to the one treatment that has made the most difference in battling my inflammation and pain.
- Where I live, there was no such thing as a cannabis dispensary until just 4 years ago.
This was due to the fact that these long held ideas that medical cannabis or any kind of cannabis was some sort of horrible thing. Even those who weren’t all caught up in the myths of what was being spread on TV still had it so illogically wrong. That fight was allowing for medical marijuana to be starting the path to a gateway drug. Well, if that’s true, then close up the liquor and distilleries because that may be the biggest gateway drug of them all. It was all just nonsense. Unluckily, it took a big tax break to entirely sway those in power on a statewide level. It wasn’t the medical marijuana benefit to people adore me. Nope, it was the dough. Well that’s okay, if that has to be the tradeoff then so be it. However, medical cannabis would never have passed were it not for people with deep billfolds getting behind it. So that I am also thankful for. But what I am most thankful for is that I can now legally access the cannabis store to get the cannabis products that help me. Without these vital medical cannabis products, I would be hurting and sore. Or worse, a completely addicted opioid statistic. With access to medical marijuana, I thankfully don’t have to make a choice like that.
