My husband and I moved here from Florida. Leaving Florida was a hard choice to make. Florida’s medical marijuana program really changed our quality of life but the heat and rapid growth made us decide to move here to this gorgeous peaceful state.
We are both disabled – my husband is a veteran and 70% disabled and I have a history of surgeries and chronic pain. Doctors tell me their hands are tied as far as prescribing the medications that alleviate my pain and help me function. These meds along with my medical cannabis made my life easier and definitely more functional – my quality of life has gone down without it. My husband’s life is also harder without medical cannabis and the new VA hospital system will not give him anything to help alleviate pain.
I keep praying that sooner rather than later, NC will see the benefits of this natural plant, not only for us suffering but for the state as a whole! We don’t want to resort to illegal means to obtain what is truly a medication!
Don’t get me wrong, we love it here! I wrote Representative Foxx and Senator Tillis. Both mentioned concerns about heroin – how sad that they think cannabis bears any resemblance to heroin.
