I'm going to be honest and say this (and hopefully I will still have you all as blog readers afterwards):
I am pro the use of medical marijuana for the treatment of a vast number of diseases/illnesses, particularly those involving chronic pain.
The drug pushes the pain to the back of your mind, and allows you to focus on a task at hand for once in a blue moon. I support increased acceptance of marijuana as a medical treatment option. If you have not considered the idea, I highly recommend.
