It took quite some time for the legalization of medical marijuana.
- Our state waited until half the country made medical marijuana legal before they followed lead.
My hubby had been suffering from insomnia from the time I met him. The older he became, the harder it was for him to overcome loss of sleep. He was having a tough time motivating himself, and I knew something had to be done about this situation. I called his doctor and told him what was going on. I had read a lot about medical marijuana and I knew there were some strains of marijuana that were able to assist people with getting sleep. Now that medical marijuana was legalized in our state, I was looking to ask if our doctor could prescribe it for my hubby. I was afraid that if he didn’t soon get some sleep, he was going to have a heart attack. When the doctor called back, he seemed a bit stunned. My hubby had told him he was sleeping well with the melatonin he had prescribed. I explained how that had worked for just a few weeks, but then the sleeping problem grew worse. He tried the prescribed sleeping pills, but it wasn’t a restful sleep in the slightest. He had horrible dreams during the night and he was basically always waking up. The doctor didn’t have the ability to write a prescription for medical marijuana, although he did send us to a therapist who was able to write the prescription. Within a month after getting his first filled medical marijuana prescription, he was totally rested and feeling exactly like his old self. I just hope medical marijuana continues doing its work and not just for a couple of weeks.
