It took a fairly long time for the legalization of medical marijuana. Our state waited until a good amount of the country made medical marijuana legal before they decided to go the same route. My hubby had been suffering from insomnia from the time I met him. The older he got, the more difficult it was for him to overcome loss of sleep. He was having troubles with motivating himself, and I knew something had to be done about this complication. I called his healthcare worker and told him what was going on. I had read a great deal about medical marijuana and I knew there were some strains of marijuana that were able to help people get rest. Now that medical marijuana was legalized in our state, I wanted to ask if our healthcare worker could prescribe it for my hubby. I was actually scared that if he didn’t soon get some sleep, he was going to experience a heart attack and collapse altogether. When the healthcare worker called back, he seemed pretty surprised. My hubby had told him he was sleeping well with the melatonin he had prescribed. I explained how that had worked for a few weeks, however then the sleeping grew entirely worse. He tried the prescribed sleeping pills, however it wasn’t a truly restful sleep. He had the most terrible nightmares and he was constantly waking up. The healthcare worker didn’t have the ability to write a prescription for medical marijuana, however he did send us to a therapist who was able to do that. Within a month after getting his first filled medical marijuana prescription, he was properly rested and feeling pretty much like his old self. I really hope medical marijuana continues working and not just for a short while.
