To None: I am not a pothead. I don't drink. I don't smoke. I do like sex. I hate smoke.
I ingest cannabis. I am a senior w/lupus, sjogrens, rh arthritis, fibromyalgia, stenosis and various illness caused by the lupus or influenced by the lupus. I am n constant pain. As I mentioned, I ingest cannabis for pain management and to help me sleep. I am prescribed Ambien for sleep and hydrocodone for pain. Both these drugs impair my ability to function at the level I am used to, and are addictive! Cannabis is not addictive and I take a dose that helps but does not impair my ability to function. I am a Grandma. I want to participate with my Grandchild. Cannabis allows me to do so. I do have a NM Medical Cannabis license.
Why would anyone even question someones illness or pain? Why would you not wish the best for some who has found something that helps? Would you rather me be "stoned" on hydrocodone? Would you rather a person not function and be in pain. I hope all this is cleared up, before you become a senior and develop some illness or pain. I hope you will think back on this, as you shuffle to the dispensary or hopefully a store. I know a few seniors who never smoked pot and never believed it should be legalized. They now use pot daily for pain and chemo. They all have cancer.
None, I write this with pity for your closed mind, and that you feel so bad about yourself, you won't even sign your real name.
With blessings to all and I hope this new year brings you less pain.
