Dad had a lot of health issues, & I often approached her about medical marijuana, and her hands were gnarled from arthritis & I could tell she was in serious pain, then she would blow myself and others off & tell myself and others she didn’t need medical marijuana, & she was okay, and i knew differently, because I watched steadily going downhill over the last year.
Her pain was becoming debilitating, & she was barely walking! One afternoon, she came into our bedroom & asked if I thought she was eligible to get medical marijuana.
I pulled up the state’s website for medical marijuana & every one of us learn the list of conditions that would make eligible. One condition at the top of the list was rheumatoid arthritis. I convinced her to go to the dentist’s & see if they could tell her what dentist she could use to get medical marijuana. Her rheumatologist smiled when Dad got there & asked about medical marijuana. She said she could not bring up the subject, but since Dad had, she would supply her the name of an excellent dentist who could supply her the information, a week later, Dad was filing for the medical marijuana card & the dentist had already given her approval to the state.All she had to do was go on the state’s medical marijuana website & spend money for the medical marijuana ID card. Her next step, once she got her card, was to go to the medical marijuana dispensary, two months later, Dad was still having difficulties, but she was walking better than she had in months.
