  2. I have had back surgery on L5 and when I fell ,peace’s cartilage broke off and they had to grind my spine ! I really need this to pass because for one thing I would sure rather smoke than take OxyContin something that you know by now is one of the most dangerous drug on the market and they act as if it is safe that is a lie !!!!!! Easy to get hooked on and bad withdrawals.

  3. Was diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes 18 years ago. I’ve since acquired complications such as Pancreatitis and Gasteoparesis. I get sick after meals, if I’m not already feeling like I’m going to get sick before I eat if I don’t consume cannabis. My endocrinologist suggests CBD which helps incredibly, but still only does so much. I eat less than a meal a day, without the use of cannabis, or Reglan. If anyone has similar problems and have remedies around that please share!

  4. If Kentucky don’t legalize medical Cannabis I’ll be force to move to a legal state. I suffer daily with chronic pain from degenerative disc desease, arthritis and sevear scoliosis and I will not become addicted to the Big Pharma pain medicat ion. Please help!
