Six years ago, our mom and I were minding our own business, on our way home from lunch.
It was about 10 at night and the street was totally empty.
My mom was stopped at a light and the people I was with and I were waiting to turn left. Every one of us suddenly saw the automobile speeding on the other side of the highway. It was almost happening in slow motion when it came speeding towards our mom and I. Every one of us honestly did not have any time to react before the automobile smashed into the front of our car. My mom was trapped behind the wheel for more than two seconds and I immediately broke both of our legs during the accident. Both our mom and I went to the nearest emergency room and the people I was with and I spent many mornings in the local hospital after the accident. My mom and I both suffered from traumatic injuries and of course the people I was with and I still have pain that affects us everyday. Only a couple of weeks ago, I talked to our doctor about medical marijuana for the first time. The pain was intolerable and I was having trouble sleeping. I got some information about medical marijuana and I thought it might be helpful. The local doctor agreed that it might be a wonderful course of treatment. Unfortunately, the guy honestly could not prescribe medical marijuana. He offered myself and others a referral and sent me off to a clinic that specializes in medical marijuana treatment. A week later, our card came in the mail. I went to a dispensary the other week for the first time. I really hope that marijuana will provide the pain relief that I seek.
