Name: William
Condition: Congenital deformity of the spine
Tuesday 10 Mar 2015

I have a congenital deformity of the spine. I became aware of the therapeutic benefits of cannabis whilst experimenting as a youth. My back pain lessened and I was able to sleep. I have been a habitual user for 45 years off and on. I had a RTA 30 years ago. This has left me with osteo-arthritis. I was busted 20 years ago and turned to prescription medicine for pain relief. It does not provide the same relief as cannabis and the side effects are unpleasant. I have reverted to cannabis because my arthritis pain is getting worse as I get older and because I hope that the war on drugs is over and I'll be left in peace by target chasing law enforcers. Perhaps Ill be allowed to manage my condition in a way that is appropriate for me. I would welcome legislation which would remove the threat of criminal proceedings and incarceration.
