I'm 55 years old. Hadn't used any weed since the 70's. About a year ago, I went to see a doctor for a chronic backache (hoping for a perk-'script), she sent me to a chiropractor. That guy started sticking electric needles in my ass. One day I was laying there looking at the floor...my ass and leg muscles flinching from the electric pulses.. I decided to try some pot. Best move I ever made. Manages my pain, and makes my days better (and more fun). My wife likes me better when I'm high (although once she said it makes me a "chatty Cathy"...I asked her not to say that to me again). My son has some emotional problems. Weed makes me understand him better, be more open and <span>sympathetic</span> to his problems, and be more patient with him. So in a nutshell...weed controls my pain and makes me a better husband and father. Can't beat that! Thanks for giving me a place ro read about weed.
