At first, she was eating only a 10 gram chunk to help her sleep. That first batch lasted her until about six weeks ago. I made the second batch and then she began Chemotherapy. Chemo has been such a fun time, her brownie consumption has tripled. ........ Yeah, Chemo has been quite a party. ......................... Hmm
It isn't that she has no AMA approved prescriptions to deal with the deep down in her bones pain during those first few days after a session. Among the countless new bottles of cancer associated drugs she has collected, there is the obligatory to any self respecting collection of man made drugs, a bottle of opiate based pain pills waiting to not curtail the pain, rather just create a "I don't give a shit" attitude. And you still wake up with severe debilitating constipation.
The bottle sits unopened to this point. We have decided to attack the pain, sleeplessness, and general bad attitude with Pot. And so far it seems to be working as well as anything to come out of a lab. Upping her intake of brownies as needed with a little help from Tylenol seems to have made this journey tolerable for her.
A heated debate from just a few years ago is now beginning to simmer down as Cannabis claims rightful presence in the cornucopia of acceptable white folk medicines. I hazard a guess that the benefits found once serious eyes hover over serious microscopes will be awesome and cause many tight ass ministers in the AMA some serious embarrassment. And even though government will never apologize for ruining people's lives for years because of their use of what will turn out to be a major source of j\healing wonders, well, godammit, they should, fuckin assholes.
And yeah, I use anecdotal evidence to support my use of Cannabis. It isn't second hand evidence. All the evidence I need is what I have personally witnessed after 20 plus years of helping folks score and use pot to help with cancer, Parkinson's, and severe back pain. The factt that it is a hoot to use is but a side benefit.
Spark one up. Life is too short to criticize something you might not understand.
Embrace the Doob. ............................................................................
