Six years ago, my mom and I were on our way home from dinner. It was about 10 at night and the street was empty. My mom was stopped at a red light and we were waiting to turn left. We saw the car speeding on the other side of the highway. It was almost like slow motion when it came speeding towards my mom and I. We didn’t have any time to react before the car smashed into the front of our SUV. My mom was trapped behind the wheel for three hours and I broke both of my legs during the accident. Both my mom and I went to the emergency room and we spent several days in the hospital after the accident. My mom and I both suffered from traumatic injuries and we still have pain that affects us everyday. A couple of months ago, I talked to my doctor about medical marijuana. The pain was intolerable and I was having trouble sleeping. I read some information about medical marijuana and I thought it might be helpful. The doctor agreed that it might be a good course of treatment. Unfortunately, the guy could not prescribe medical marijuana. He gave me a referral and sent me to a clinic that specializes in medical marijuana treatment. The medical marijuana treatment facility physician agreed with my doctor. The woman gave me some reading materials on medical marijuana. A week later, my card came in the mail. I went to a dispensary for the first time. I really hope that marijuana will provide the pain relief that I seek.
