Show your support for me and all others in NJ who benefit from the use of mediacl marijuana. I have taken pain killers for 10+ years due to having CHIARI MALFORMATION and SYRINGOMYELIA. There is no cure and even having 2 brain surgeries has made my way of living worse than before diagnosed. All I want to do is feel better and with your help I might get that chance!!
In 2004 I had to have my second brain surgery and to this day the only thing that helps me is the marijuana. I have been on every available pain killer and to this point thankfully my liver and such are OK. Myself and my neurologist have been waiting for good news and we got it the other day. Now it is going to change again. I am upset over the fact that it is OK for us to take oxycontin, morphine, dilaudid, etc--but smoking, drinking, or eating marijuana is looked at worse than those pain killers. It is very scary to know that pain killers which can take your life later are acceptable, but something that is grown in the gound is not accepted. I am trying to make sense of this and can't. Can someone please explain this to me?
