Fearing a return to prescription opioids

JAMAICA — I am a medical marijuana patient. I suffer from multiple medical conditions that qualify me for a medical marijuana card. I find that blending varieties of cannabis help relieve my chronic and often acute pain caused by several conditions that I suffer from. Often I go without this important therapy, as it is already very difficult to have enough medicine available under Vermont's restrictive home-grow regulations.

Without access to enough cannabis, I will be forced to ask my medical doctor for the prescription opioids that I had been given previous to my use of cannabis. I cannot afford the product produced by the dispensaries.

Being able to grow my own medicine has improved my quality of life by healing my body. Prescription drugs do not accomplish this for me and are far more dangerous!
