Keep script drugs or if pot fixed or helped the issues the script drugs help, only have pot available?

Pot.  I hadn't smoked it since the 80s but I suffer pretty badly from anxiety.  I have avoided prescriptions as I don't like the side effects but recently found that just minimal usage of pot has alleviated my symptoms to the point that I am really functional.  I feel silly using a college friend of my daughter's to get my "meds" and wish it were legally available.

so many medications now have such awful side affect. the only known side affects for SOME people with using pot is sometimes it can trigger paranoia and anxiety, but it all dependso nthe amount ad how its ingested. that and a rare allergy.

Marijuana, absolutely. Drugs are poison, pretty much across the board. Horrible side-effects. Weed doesn't  have that problem.

My sister and I procured weed for my dad when he was going through chemo. We made him brownies. Less poison he had to take. After a few treaments, he decided to forgo chemo, much to our delight.

My 83 year old mother lives in assisted living and suffers from rheumatoid arthritis.  She has a source.

I wish that I could use mj liberally to get the maximum benefits from it, but I can only use it very sparingly so as not to interfere with my ability to get medical treatment.

MJ should most definitely be approved to relieve pain, as well as relieve eye pressure or glaucoma!!!! Yes, indeed!

But I want it to be MJ without the THC.

For my disabled leg and scoliosis in my lower back, I'd love to use it but still working on getting my card.

However, I am an insulin-dependent diabetic as well, so I am not sure how the pot would work for that.

I am all for medical mj and while Arizona (my state) has legalized it here, there are quite a few rules that go along with it, especially with what they'll cover for a card and won't.
