Medical and recreational Cannabis is legal in many states across the country.
Two-thirds of the country allows medical marijuana.
Just recently, medical marijuana bills were passed in the state where my friends and I live. Medical THC is only available in oils, topical gels, patches, and capsules. Right now you cannot purchase any smokable flower, Vape cartridges, or even edibles. There is also a small list of approved conditions. These restrictive measures are put in place so the state lawmakers can say they have legalized medical marijuana without actually allowing anyone to access the plant. I tried to go to the doctor to get a medical cannabis card, but the doctor refused to sign the documents. He referred me to a specialist that wanted almost $1,000. He wasn’t sure my element would be covered either, but he still wanted half of the money up front and before the evaluation. Even though two-thirds of the country has medical marijuana, it’s really aggravating to live in a state that is in the Stone Age. A few of my friends live in a state where cannabis is absolutely legal for recreational and medical use and they always want me to move. I could find a job and work anywhere. I already have an associate’s degree and I have a job at the bank. I’m sure it wouldn’t be difficult to find employment in another state. I hate to leave my little sister behind, but I believe medical marijuana would help me mentally and physically. It’s a tough choice to make and it keeps me awake every night.
