    OMG, I'm drooling....

    I suffer migraines and have chronic pain in my neck from a car accident ten years ago. I can no longer take opiates such as vicodin or percocet because they increase my blood pressure and heart rate to dangerous levels. I can't take NSAIDs because my stomach is too sensitive from years of constant ibuprofen use, and there are no other pain killers that sufficiently alleviate my pain.

    Except MMJ. It is the only thing that can actually alleviate my migraines AND the nausea they cause, as well as allowing me to move around freely without pain. It brings my blood pressure down naturally, regulates my heart rate, and elevates my mood. I generally take 6 different medications to do all of that, when mmj is unavailable (which is frequent in an intolerant state). So, because it's illegal, my liver has to suffer from medications that don't truly help, when I could use mmj twice a day and alleviate ALL of my pain and other symptoms. What's the problem again?? Grrr....
