Medicinal Marijuana
smash asked:

I have chronic back pain and therapy and pain pills don’t really seem to help as much as they did in the begining. I tried marijuana and it helped so much. I would like to bring it up with my doctor but i’m young 26 and I don’t want him to think I’m drug seeking. What do you guys think?

    I thought marijuana was used to prevent/ease nausea from chemo patients…

    Dunno, if you really need it, I think the dovtor could tell an honest consultation from a drug addict.

    You don’t actually have to talk to your normal doctor about it.

    If you live in a state that has legalized medical marijuana (find out here ), just read up on what that state requires for a med-marijuana license. Obtain your medical history from your doctor. If your recent medical history shows you’ve had chronic pain, in most situations, that makes you eligible for med-marijuana.

    That being said, while not every doctor is going to be willing to prescribe it, you shouldn’t fear that a doctor might see you as some sort of druggie. Marijuana is useful for a lot of ailments and diseases.

    Not sure how to answer that, but i have an alternative. There is HOPE!! . A new product has become available this year that is changing people’s quality of life in several different categories. I have personally seen it help folks with…Diabetes, high blood pressure, chronic pain, swelling, joint aches and pains, headaches, arthritis, irritable bowel, everday lack of energy…the list is long. It was designed to help a father who was dieing from liver failure. They have extracted several of the rarest botanical fruits on the globe.. It contains Acai, Gac, Goji, Mangosteen, Noni, Seabuckthorn, Fucoidan, Pomegranate, aloe, …the list is long. There are endorsements from several professional athletes coaches. Anyway you can get a free trial at this website, It’s definitely worth the 2.99 for shipping.

    PS.. there are a bunch of testimonials there also if you’re interested.

    before you even jump to legal marijuana as your solution, consider the fact that in most states your name is put on the medicinal marijuana list which employers can look at and would be really bad if you ever seek public office. Do your research on that first. And if you’ve proven that you have chronic back pain and you have already been given pills for it, it shouldn’t be a problem with your doctor

    If you live in Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Maine, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, or Washington you could be eligible for a medical marijuana card.

    If so, you don’t talk to your general doctor about it. There are certain doctors specifically there to recommend you for medical marijuana use, which you can easily find after a quick search on google. You generally pay about $100 for a consultation, and if they approve you, you are given a medicinal license.
