I cant believe that i used to be ignorant about weed...... Just like the general population i was brought up to believe that if you smoke "weed" than your a junkie. Until i my buddy that i was in the military with educated me on PROP 19 and NORML and the laws and the people that used it to medicate. Lets just say visiting him in Santa Cruz opened my eyes But Im from TX so I guess my level of PTSD and pain isnt the same as his PTSD and pain is in CA.... Or any of the other states that allow patients to medicate.... I was given ambien for sleep issues cuz of my PTSD and I couldnt even handle playing Modern Warfare 2 without having to stop because of all the activity i was doing when ambien was in my system. I felt on edge and worse off then i was before I took the "MEDICINE" thats supposed to help.... But give me a bowl of strawberry haze and my relationship with my GF has gotten better no more angry outbursts or feeling empty for no damn reason and I actually look forward to sleeping because with the Ambien I would wake up groggy and sluggish all day long.... I aced my finals on Purp Train Wreck..... I would understand if across the board that MJ would not available to anyone.... But as a patriotic american that has served my country and did 2 combat tours to Iraq I feel that I should get the same treatment for the same problems as anybody else in the country... talking about the "Medicating states" thats where I see the argument and that is my argument!!!!!
