179. It's not illegal - I have a prescription
Now you may scoff at my prescription (many do and they're called 'Dittoheads') I have a back that resembles a Crab Louis more than a spine. Total herniated disc, 25% of disc still in place.

Yeah I could do surgery if I could take the time off. But I can't, you see I have a family.

I could go on Morphine and Hydros - I did, in fact. But they make me incapable of doing my job. They render my brain useless. I'm almost off the junk (and yes, it is junk) and will be completely off in 7 days. Just because it's legal doesn't make it good for you.

Oh - and get this - the Morphine + Hydros never stopped more than 50% of the pain.

Med Marijuana, on the other hand, does not turn me into a Zombie, does not fuck with my cognition, and cuts up to 80% of the pain.

But I guess that relief comes with a price. Because of folks like you, I have to suffer. Thanks. For nothing. Asshole.
