He wasn’t allowed, because of hospital policies
I had heard that medical cannabis can help nearly everything I was complaining about. I had used marijuana when I was a teenager, but that was almost fifty years ago. I told the doctor that I felt well back then. I didn’t have arthritis or eye problems. I didn’t have asthma or anxieties. I definitely didn’t have achy joints that were swollen and distorted. I must have asked the doctor for a prescription for medical cannabis at least five times, but he always said no. He always said he couldn’t do it. I knew you had to have a doctor sign a prescription for medical cannabis, and he was my therapist. If anyone could get me a prescription for medical cannabis, it should be him. I was a bit upset that he refused to give me the prescription. The last time I talked to him, he explained that the arthritis would not get any better. He told me that at the rate it was progressing, I could be in a wheelchair within two years. I asked him if medical cannabis could help me. He said he was sure it could give me some relief, but he couldn’t give me the prescription. I broke down and begged. He told me it was that he wouldn’t but he couldn’t. He wasn’t allowed, because of hospital policies. He did, however, give me the name of a therapist who could help me. He said to give her his name and tell her about my severe rheumatoid arthritis. He told me that within two weeks, I should be feeling some comfort thanks to the medical cannabis.
