When I was diagnosed with severe depression, I considered asking the doctor for medical marijuana.
I was told that medical marijuana had fewer complications than any prescription medicine the doctor prescribed.
I went online and did a lot of research on how to get a medical marijuana ID card. The process itself was lengthy, and it cost a couple hundred dollars. My doctor could not get me a medical marijuana ID card, so I was going to need to go to a pain specialist who was working with the state. Once I got the medical marijuana ID card, I had to go to a marijuana dispensary. Our state didn’t allow you to put in orders online unless it was the marijuana dispensary you used in your area,.but then you had to pick your order up at the dispensary. They didn’t have delivery. One marijuana product cost $50 on average. When my husband got home, I told him I didn’t have enough money for medical marijuana and I showed him all the information I had found. He asked if I really thought it would help me. I wasn’t sure if it was going to help anymore than the $5 prescription I was taking now, but there would be fewer complications. He said he would pay for everything, if that was what I wanted to do. I didn’t think even if we added both our incomes together, we could afford to purchase medical marijuana. He told me it was my decision, but if I changed my mind, we could come up with the money so I could feel better.
