I am stoked that medical cannabis was legalized, but since I don’t have a prescription it doesn’t do me a lot of good.
I’m sure that recreational weed will be legal in a few more years, but I would prefer it happen sooner rather than later.
My doctor is an honest guy, and told me flat out he would not prescribe medical cannabis for me because I had no real need for it. I explained that my mental health and emotional strength benefited greatly from using medical cannabis, so he told me to ask my therapist instead. I can’t even go inside the medical cannabis dispensary to look around, because they check IDs and prescription cards at the door. What harm could there be in letting me inside to see what kinds of medical cannabis they have? A couple of my friends do have prescriptions for medical cannabis, but they can’t help me out very much. The way the legal medical cannabis prescriptions work is that you have a maximum limit for how much you can buy at one time, and how much you can buy in one month. The computer system at the cannabis dispensary keeps track of your purchases, so after a certain point you can get cut off. Neither of my friends can afford to sell me their medical marijuana, because they have a limited amount of it. Thankfully my little brother Ike still sells medical cannabis out of his dorm room on campus. His medical cannabis is usually very low quality, but it’s better than nothing.
