About a year ago I got COVID, and I mean I got it bad! I was in bed for almost two full weeks, and even when I started to test negative for the virus, I still felt like crap.
Although I had no energy, I also had a hard time staying asleep. Being stuck in bed and not being able to sleep is the worst of both worlds! A few weeks ago I had an appointment with my regular physician, and I asked him about medical cannabis. It turns out my doctor is not a big fan of it, and refused to give me a prescription for it. In this state the law says that medical cannabis is only legal when prescribed by a doctor. Once I have a written prescription for medical cannabis I can apply for the state-mandated prescription card. After I have the medical cannabis prescription card, then I can start visiting any of the local dispensaries. That is a whole lot of steps for someone who just wants a little weed, right? It’s not just for getting stoned, either, because a lot of the cannabis information I have read indicates it will help me sleep better at night. If I could get medical cannabis just for my sleep issues that would be good enough. Perhaps I have been approaching this wrong, and instead of researching medical cannabis I can research friendly doctors who would give me a prescription for it. Even if it requires bringing an unethical doctor, it would be worth it for the medical marijuana prescription.
