I saw first hand just what medical marijuana can do.
It was pretty stunning to be quite honest. That had everything to do with the way I once felt about cannabis. I was of the mind that anyone who used cannabis was a wasted stoner looking to just slide by in life. That’s the truth and it’s the most arrogant sort of perspective to have when it comes to such a miracle plant. If it wasn’t for medical marijuana and the changes in the law here in this state, I think my sister wouldn’t be as far along in her recovery from cancer. We were certainly all shocked by her diagnosis given how young she is. Being barely forty and having kids to raise makes a cancer diagnosis all the tougher to accept. Yet, my sister is the sort who cleared her head after a day or two and got about figuring out just what she could do to beat this thing. Of course, the doctor’s were encouraging and expert. They were also essential when it came to fast tracking her medical marijuana card. She started using the indica dominant hybrid strains recommended by the local cannabis spot and the ones she had researched. Not only did she get the relief she needed during chemo when it came to nausea, she was able to eat healthy food. She actually had an appetite. But it was more than just the physical aspect of her experience with cannabis that changed my mind. It was the perspective that she was able to maintain and she said it was all due to the cannabis edibles and the other cannabis products that she was using. I’m now a vocal advocate for cannabis to be legal to anybody who needs it.
