Mom had a lot of health concerns, plus I often approached her about medical marijuana! Her hands were gnarled from arthritis plus I could tell she was in extreme pain, and she would blow me off plus tell me she didn’t need medical marijuana, plus she was okay! I knew differently, because I watched steadily going downhill over the last year.

Her pain was becoming debilitating, plus she was barely walking, and one morning, she came into our family room plus asked if I thought she was eligible to get medical marijuana.

I pulled up the state’s website for medical marijuana plus both of us study 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 nurse’s plus see if they could tell her what nurse she could use to get medical marijuana. Her rheumatologist smiled when mom got there plus asked about medical marijuana. She said she could not bring up the subject, but since mom had, she would give her the name of an excellent nurse who could give her the information; A week later, mom was filing for the medical marijuana card plus the nurse had already given her approval to the state.All she had to do was go on the state’s medical marijuana website plus spend our money for the medical marijuana ID card. Her next step, once she got her card, was to go to the medical marijuana dispensary, but two weeks later, mom was still having difficulties, even though she was walking better than she had in weeks.
