Chronic Pain and Seizures by Anonymous

I have been in chronic pain for three years and have been prescribed lortabs, duregisic patches, and methadone.  A friend suggested I try pot.  By that time I was desperate, I hurt so bad from fibromyalgia and depression from the pain.  It was causing marital problems and I was having terrible trouble with my teenage daughter.  I am a Christian and didn’t really want to try it but once I did, I felt I could do things again.  I was interested in learning, anyway.  You see, I have had to take seizure medicine since I was young due to meningitis.  It seems the marijuana helps also.  I have been smoking about 2 or 3 joints a day and I really can’t afford it when the homegrown is gone.  I have been prescribed Marinol, but it doesn’t work like cannabis.  Are there any clinical trials out there and why is our government being so cruel?  I hated breaking the law.
