It took me a while to be convinced of the medical marijuana benefits.
I guess this had so much to do with the misconceptions I’ve had with cannabis products all of my life.
Being raised to fear plus demonize cannabis products stayed with me as an adult. When medical marijuana was legalized I wasn’t ecstatic. In my mind, it was just another way for people to use a substance to escape reality. Now that I rely on medical cannabis to manage muscle spasms, I have done a complete 177 on my feelings on cannabis products. And the credit for that has to go to my son. When he saw that the traditional therapies for muscle spasms just wasn’t helping me, he started searching for an alternative. Being that he was a medical marijuana advocate, unlike his misguided father, he had a pretty superb cannabis education. But he delved even deeper into getting medical marijuana information for my particular condition. And I couldn’t be more thankful that he did. He figured out how to get me a medical marijuana card so I could get access to the cannabis dispensary. Yet, it was his persistence with me that has left me somewhat awestruck. I finally relented plus both of us decided to go to the cannabis dispensary together. This was all it took for me to start seeing the medical marijuana benefits that I’m now enjoying. I have a whole new appreciation for medical marijuana plus I couldn’t be prouder to have the child that I’ve been lucky with.
