Im so glad that Prop 203 was voted in. but disappointed in how people are one-sided in their thinking. I had Back surgery in 2008(Spinal Fusion L4-5) Left me in more pain. And also limited my activities. Taking the pain meds has caused constipation and mood swings. I say “Hooray”

Also, I am a mother of two, 49 yrs old married 21 years. I have several chronic diseases which cause systemic pain and symptoms which require medications that cause severe nausea. I have been able to stop taking my oral pain medications and my nausea medications. That’s FIVE pills down and a much healthier LIVER and kidneys thanks to it. Prolonged my life! Like everyone, I’m just looking for some quality and mmj gives me JUST THAT. I also make “medibles” which help in dosing properly and utilitizing the THC or Cannabanoid content of the medicine for people like me who don’t smoke it. I do however have a vaporizer and have found it very beneficial. Any questions, ask away,…I’m Julie

I have my patient card and I have met some very wonderful people and patients here in phoenix who have nothing but help each other in our new endeavor to use mmj state legally. I’ve met employees and representatives of the azdh who have gone above and beyond to get the cards to the patients who need them. Who also continue to do so in the face of being prosecuted themselves. I’ve met patients willing to help other patients learn to grow and people who are opening compassion clubs and co-ops and generously donate meds to people in need. Please contact me if you need any help finding some patient/caregiver support in phoenix…I’m more than happy to share anything I know!!!!!

I am a Traumatic Brain Injury survivor , twice, I have a seizure condition and have no other alternatives , the side effects have been astounding on all seizure medicines and I am being forced to give up my rights to use medical marijuana by a Governor that does not believe in the law before it was enacted by the voters, bad message to voters for sure on every level. ARIZONA POLITICS AS USUAL. Where are the protestors…..I am running out of time, and the tax payer will have to pay for me to have VNS, which will cost 30,000. If the Government found that Dog Wood Trees for example got you loaded would they cut them all down too???????????????? GIMME A BREAK, Thanks for a place to come to speak out…………

I have been on many prescriptions for my health for 10 years. Nothing has worked and I have overdosed from my meds. When you are sick you feel that you have died and cant live a normal life. I cannot tell my family that I am a Marijuana patient because they are ignorant to its medical purpose. I want people who are sick to know there is a good alternative out here and dont be afraid to live the life you are suppose to live. I havn’t received my card yet but when I do I will let you all know how good I am doing.
