‘The first time I took it I was terrified because I really didn’t know what the effects were going to be. But when I did I just couldn’t believe it. Within half an hour the pain had started to fade for the first time in years. I just couldn’t grasp the fact that there was something so much more effective than all the conventional medicine I had tried, yet it was not available on prescription. It didn’t make any sense…The government seems to be blase about our fate.’
I also love Libby’s conclusion to her post, which reflects my view perfectly:
The prohibition profiteers like to tell you that medical marijuana supporters have a hidden agenda to legalize the plant altogether. Not true. What is true is that the drug policy reformers like myself who forthrightly admit our goal is to eventually legalize all use completely also support the chronically ill in their quest to find relief now.
