Recognize Fibromyalgia as a Disability & Approve Medical Marijuana NOW!

This petition had 374 supporters

As a CHRONIC PAIN sufferer due to FIBROMYALGIA, I AM DEMANDING CHANGE! Currently NYS laughs in our face by not recognizing Fibromyalgia as a TRUE DISABILITY, forcing individuals to remain UNEMPLOYED  for a minimum of one year or longer in order to present a valid case for disability.  This is absolutely absurd considering some individuals do not have that option as they must need to support themselves in one way or another in order to survive.  As a chronic pain sufferer, I  have not only exhausted my sick time and my vacation time for treatment, flareups etc but I also feel like I have hit a dead end when it comes to treatment.  There are many autoimmune diseases and other diseases that are  classified as applicable when it comes to medical marijuana but those that suffer chronic pain such as fibromyalgia or not. WHY?  Makes no sense!  But yet they want to force feed narcotics down everyone's throat and then complain that opioids are gateway drug  to heroin etc.  I am going to stand up and push for change for those suffering from fibromyalgia and other chronic pain disorder's!
