Last week, they finally opened up an up-to-date medical marijuana dispensary in our area, however legal, medical marijuana laws had become law 4 years previous, but this was the first time that they had opened a marijuana dispensary in our area. I had my medical marijuana ID card for 4 years now, in addition to I was beyond excited to go check out this local marijuana dispensary instead of needing to go 50 miles away; When I got to the dispenser, I had to hold my medical ID card up to a small camera, in addition to then wait for them to buzz me inside, however my husband, being my caretaker, had to do the same thing with a caretaker’s ID card, but once the two of us got through the major hurdle of getting in, I could ask for the help of 1 of their on-site pharmacist. I explained to the budtender about the pain I had going from my lower back into my legs, in addition to that I explained to them how my spine was slowly deteriorating. He showed me a handful of products he had to help ease the pain in addition to make it easier for me to move around and walk. Some of the medical marijuana products were used to help eliminate the tissue inflammation in addition to swelling that comes from arthritis pain, which is what caused my spinal deterioration, however driving 6 miles to this up-to-date marijuana dispensary was so much easier than taking a 50 mile drive to the closest medical marijuana dispensary that the two of us use, however being able to drive such a short distance in addition to still get all the marijuana products that I needed made my life a lot easier. My husband is cheerful to have a marijuana dispensary that is that much closer.
