1. Never heard of that

Gabapentin and weed gets me by, but it does wear on you. It does seem to get progressively worse so you got that goin' for you.

3. I have a medical marijuana card

and have been able to grow or buy legally.

The methadone is .25 grams a day and is for neuropathy in my feet and legs.

2. Must be serious pain

One step below Opioids and almost as dangerous, but if it helps.

5. Let me ask my wife

She has terminal cancer but keeps winning the immediate battle but in time will loose the war.

She is also a Paramedic and has no use for Marijuana. She said studies have proven that it does not control pain. Other drugs far surpass it.

She also said the only thing it is good for other than you just want to get high is appetite. Then she said the patch is far superior because it keeps a controlled dose in your system and keeps your appetite going.

To smoke it you have to wait 30-45 min to affect your appetite. She said anybody fighting for medical marijuana is just a fucking pot head or is just honestly ignorant on other methods that work much better.

Please forgive me, was not saying and did not mean you were an idiot. If you took it that way please except my apologies.

Just repeating my wife's words and her experience on this issue. She has neuropathy up into her hips now.

6. No..would never.

Broke my hip last yr and took nothing bigger than a street strength tylenol..even post-op. The Doc asked if I had my own meds...no Sir.
When I was diagnosed with degenerative c-spine(horrific pain) in '16...an occasional tylenol.
When I got shot I took a codeine tylenol mix 4x's over 4 months.

When my wife got sick I watched meds being pushed....she needed it with Small Cell Lung Cancer...a pain no one can describe that ended up morphine as palliative...

Nerve pain....stop....drink a beer or do a JD shot
