93. My 94-yr old mother is terrified
Edited on Sat Oct-27-07 02:57 PM by Sukie1941
She can't tolerate ANY painkillers other than aspirin.

She had a lung surgery without any painkillers when she was 85.

Recently she had a metal piece put into her spine, again without pain killers.

We never tried marijuana for anything, but had she asked for it, I would have found it.

I live on a So. Oregon river, and years ago boaters planted marijuana all along the river! Not sure if any of it is still growing.

I think here in Oregon, if people are quiet about it, they can use marijuana without any trouble from "authorities."

We have legal right-to-die laws here, thank god. I want to add that this measure passed twice, and the feds have tried and tried to kill it. Interestingly, Oregon tends to vote conservative, so some of them (alot of them) must have voted for it! Self-interest, of course!
