Just a few short years ago, I was shocked at the idea of legalizing marijuana.
I associated cannabis with those loser potheads that I went to school with and, later on, that I taught when I was a high school teacher.
I remember that all the people who wanted legal cannabis were always just grown up versions of those rather idiotic teenagers. I thought the last thing they needed was legal access to marijuana because they already seemed to have lost half their brain cells. But, then, my state legalized medical marijuana. They have yet to make recreational marijuana legal, but that day is coming, I am sure. Now, medical marijuana seems to be as mainstream as a glass of whiskey, although I don’t think there are marijuana bars like there are alcohol bars — yet. Anyway, now that cannabis is legal for medical use, there are medical cannabis dispensaries popping up all over town. I am sure they are profitable. Also, I am going into a cannabis dispensary for the first time after work today. I have arthritis, and all the doctors will do is give me drugs that don’t really work. I can’t get, and don’t want narcotics; everyone knows how addictive they are. Advil and Tylenol don’t help all that much. I’m going to talk to the guy and get either CBD oil or CBD cream and try to get rid of the arthritis pain in my back and knees and hips. In addition to the arthritis, I also have fibromyalgia, which causes generalized pain all over the body. Fingers crossed that the medical cannabis product helps. I would love to have pain free days again!
