I have seen people with addictions and I didn’t like what I saw. I almost became one of those people when I was using pain pills like some people eat candy. If it hadn’t been for the cannabis information I procured, I would have a real problem right now. I was lucky enough to have someone give me cannabis education before he would give me more pain pills. When I had my accident, I had a severe back injury. I have had several surgeries and none of them have done anything but cause more pain. I was told I would never be without pain, which caused me a bit of depression. I was talking to a doctor that gave me some information about cannabis. He told me that the amount of painkillers I was using was going to get me into drug rehab before it helped kill the pain. He gave me some information on cannabis seminars. He also told me that if that was a direction I was interested in, he would give me a prescription for legal medical cannabis. I met several other people who had chronic pain, when I went to a seminar. They were saying that with the help of legal medical cannabis, they were finding relief from their pain, and they were able to walk again. I took the steps I needed to take to get my medical marijuana card. I then went to the legal cannabis dispensary. The people in the cannabis dispensary were all nice and they told me what I could get and they gave me information on how to use the marijuana. It was the smartest move I made since I am now off the painkillers and I am walking on my own.
