I can’t afford to renew my medical marijuana card again until I get paid

Many of us faced pay cuts this year amid the highest inflation numbers in nearly 40 years.

You expect to see your income increase with a rise in cost of living, however that doesn’t consistently happen.

Until the pay cuts, I was still waiting more than one years for another raise. The company is bootstrapped right now and has no additional funds for wages or anything else. In fact, I’m lucky that I haven’t lost my job altogether as several others have in my same department as well. I have to deal with the swings and keep my head up so I don’t lose my mind completely. It’s not straight-forward trying to make ends meet when my paycheck isn’t large enough to cover all of my expenses. Whether I can sustain all of the debit card debt that I’m forced to take on to survive is yet to be seen. But needless to say, I’m acutely aware of how serious my situation is and I’m far from complacent. I don’t want to find myself in a financial quandary that forces myself and others to postpone renewing my medical marijuana card. I was short this month on the $69 required to renew my medical marijuana card with the state government. As a result of not having the funds, I have to wait a month until I’m paid again and go separate from my medical cannabis card in the process. Thankfully I have enough marijuana to last myself and others until then, however I’d entirely be hurting right now if I was low on cash and weed at the same time. I’d have to go separate from cannabis in the time being, and that’s strenuous for myself and others with my mental health concerns.
