The laws started to change a few years ago, however that never helped me until recently.
The law on the books, as well as the reality of afternoon to afternoon life do not constantly meet in the middle, but even though medical pot was legal for some time, it was still not available to me. Only a few months ago did the first dispensary open in this area of the state, as well as it was still over 2 hours drive from our house! I finally got word that the state had approved dispensaries to mail out as well as give their marijuana products, which means that I finally have access to the weed I need! I have a cannabis prescription through our physician, due to our advanced cataracts, however for that really same reason I obviously can’t drive to get our medicine. Other pharmacies will mail their products, so I don’t understand what took so long with cannabis dispensaries to follow suit. I think it is another example of the demonization of cannabis, making it seem somehow illicit even though it is legally recognized as medical in nature. Thankfully I have a neighbor named Hank, who has a small patch of marijuana plants on his lands, and hank sells me cannabis from time to time, however I need a lot more than he has to offer. I can really smoke 10 or twelve grams of cannabis a week, both for medicinal purposes as well as for fun. Finally our cannabis needs will all be fulfilled, as well as I can have all of it shipped directly as well as discretely to our front porch.
