As of today, it's legal for me to medicate with marijuana
in the state of colorado.Of course I have no money for the dispensary to pick up any buds but I am planning on buying a month's worth when I get my check. That leaves me just enough money for toilet paper and kitty supplies.

I didn't think I would ever see the day. I am not going to re-up my percocets next month and see how long I can go without. I'll let you all know how that goes.

23. It really works, especially if combined with real Asprin
Not sure why it has to be real Asprin (willow bark) but it does...

The two work together to just REMOVE the pain, not just let you tolerate it

There'z nothing cooler than to walk into the dispensary and pick from the menu. I hope the offerings at your end of the pool are as pot-ent as the ones up here. :D

13. I was in shock
Thousands and thousands of dollars of bud. I hope I live long enough to see it legal for everyone. In this state it pretty much already is.

15. Thanks Peggy
I have a caregiver who is growing my allotment for me. It won't be ready until mid-december..until then, I can buy it from the clinic.

Once my caregiver gets enough for me, he should be able to provide enough for me every month to the point where I pay very little. But I have to wait until december for that.

19. I hope you get relief
I know that it would be nice to have an appetite and be fog free. Seizure control meds kill the appetite, morphine and fentanyl leave me in a fog. My tolerance has built up over the years such that to get any pain relief I am to the point of 'do not drive or operate heavy machinery'.

I am in Washington but cannot convince my primary doc to recommend the use, so I am going to make a visit to a THCF clinic and hope the outcome is as successful as yours.

Please keep the forum informed with your progress. Are you planning on smoking or using an inhaler, if you don't mind my asking?

:woohoo:
