I’m in a very interesting conundrum. I have PTSD, and all of the SSRI’s I have taken have come with side effects that are not exactly good. One made me gain a ton of weight, and the other made me homicidal LOL. I live in a state where marijuana is completely legal. Even without a medical marijuana card you can go in the store and buy it if you are at least 21.
But in my case I am eligible to go a step further and quite easily I could obtain a medical marijuana card. Because I have PTSD that is one of the conditions in this state that is eligible for a marijuana card. This would allow me not only to buy it in the stores but also to own my own plants. How cool is that! Problem. I live in Section 8 Housing, and I also live in an apartment complex that doesn’t allow marijuana. We have to sign something when we move in agreeing to that. What the fuck. I’m actually in the process of taking the certification class to become a medical marijuana consultant. It would actually allow me to be a Consulting in a dispensary. Anyway I guess the purpose of writing this is to bitch about the ironh of the situation. How is it that it can be legal and yet still illegal… It’s just fucked up.
Weed was always my drug of choice. I was severely addicted to it for 10 years. But I recently started smoking again because… I just really needed to. I’ve actually found it it has improved my symptoms tremendously in a really short amount of time. Mostly what it has done is relieved my chronic pain. I forgot what it feels like to not be in pain. My pain is completely somatic. I’ve been seen by a physiatrist, which is a pain doctor. A real MD. The very first thing she told me was that I needed to address my sexual abuse history. This was 11 years ago and I thought she was full of s***. Turns out she was right but even with that, my body naturally just lives in a state of complete fear even if I don’t think I’m being afraid my body is tense. I constantly feel like I’m about to be attacked. So smoking weed honestly has helped me for the first time in a very long time feel… Normal. So it’s legal but it’s not legal… Anyways… YeahDecember 18, 2017 at 6:36 pm #6800
Since marijuana is illegal on the federal level, it is not legal for me to have it in Section 8 housing. But because my medical condition would allow me to have it without any problems whatsoever in the state… It just pretty much puts me in a f***** position. It’s really actually kind of maddening because on the federal level they talk all about letting the states make their own decisions but yet they’re not!
It’s just fucked up and I don’t know what to do. I really don’t want to have to feel like I’m risking losing my housing just to feel better because that doesn’t make me feel better that keeps me even more tense. It’s a really vicious circle.December 18, 2017 at 6:45 pm #6801

So I went to get my medical marijuana card today and was approved easily with no hassle. Apparently I can grow the MAXIMUM which is 15 plants!!!!! They have these things called “co-ops” where I could have someone grow my plants FOR ME! I wouldn’t have to have them in my house and they would be for me solely…SO AWESOME!!!!!
They pretty much just told me to be discreet and I shouldn’t have a problemDecember 19, 2017 at 12:56 am #6803

They will grow 15 plants for you!!!! Over 1/2 an ounce a week for free? I agree – you “shouldn’t have a problem” as long as you have Pizza Hut on speed dial.December 19, 2017 at 2:03 am #6804
Hell fucking yeah! I’m growing them!!! Free medicine baby! lol.December 19, 2017 at 2:05 am #6805
I guess I really am that fucked up, lol. She didn’t have to approve me for the maximum but I think when I told her all my symptoms she was like yeah – you need the maximum!December 19, 2017 at 2:09 am #6806
I do wish pizza hut delivered to our area, lol..we get everything BUT pizza hut!!!!!!! It’s a travesty!!!December 20, 2017 at 1:15 am #6807
Why not try baking it in brownies? Self medicating would smell a lot less like a skunk and maybe make you less conspicuous in the Section 8 housing – I’m sure there are a ton of recipes on the net 🙂December 20, 2017 at 4:42 am #6808
I heard you can die from that if you don’t know what you are doing lol….they sell all kinds of edibles and even beverages in the stores…ive never done it that way…Ive always smoked joints or blunts….back in the day it was always joints.
I’m learning a lot about this shit that is very surprising! It turns out that I need weed high in CBD…CBD doesn’t get you stoned but it helps with the symptoms.I was noticing today I felt more relaxed than I have in years! I have an appointment tomorrow to get registered on the database and that will allow me to get the 15 plants. Turns out I need to contact a grower yo get the plants. There’s a lot to this industry! I’m going to get a job as a budtender lol.December 20, 2017 at 4:45 am #6809December 20, 2017 at 11:00 am #6810

More CBD than THC is what makes it medicinal. THC is what makes you “stoned” but CBD is what relaxes the muscles and alleviates stress.
I wonder what the CDC have to say about CBD, even on the QT, if they have not gone to pot yet.December 20, 2017 at 1:51 pm #6812
Belle you cannot die from eating edibles. If there was any risk at all, the anti-pot campaign would have it flashed all over the news! If you eat too much, you keel over in a daze until it wears off.
I truly believe you will benefit hugely from the CBD, and I can’t tell you how happy I am that you are off the Zoloft 🙂
Lastly, I don’t know if you have a car, but if you do, be careful with your pot and your driving, they don’t mix very well.
Good luck to you. Send me a PM if you want some helpful pictures when you come to harvest your plant 🙂December 20, 2017 at 7:53 pm #6813
@strega that’s what I thought until I heard about what’s happened in Colorado:
There’s also a girl who became paralyzed I will have to find it…December 20, 2017 at 7:55 pm #6814
