I was so happy when I received my medical marijuana card.
For years and years, I have been self-medicating with marijuana.
I have terrible anxiety, PTSD, and RLS. The RLS symptoms are probably the worst ailment, because my legs keep me from resting peacefully throughout the night. I have anxiety and PTSD from years and years in the military. I spent several years drinking alcohol and it was becoming a problem. Some friends of mine suggested marijuana, which I had not tried since I was in high school. After I realized that marijuana could help with all of my ailments, I began using the drug every day. A year ago, my state legalized medical marijuana. I had to wait several months before a list of doctors was announced. I met with a physician and they agreed that medical marijuana was a good treatment option for all of my symptoms and trouble. I’ve had the medical marijuana card for a few months now and I feel much better smoking marijuana legally. I don’t worry about getting in trouble, because I have a prescription for marijuana. There are three dispensaries in my neighborhood and all of them are only a short driving distance. My favorite dispensary carries edibles. They always have a variety of pot brownies, space cake, gummy worms, and hard candies. Edibles are great for a full body high that is relaxing. Unfortunately, sometimes the edibles make me feel very sleepy. They definitely aren’t something that I can use during the day, when I need to work. I prefer an uplifting sativa or hybrid strain for daytime use.
