He suggested that we try it out and see if that would give me any relief
I played sports in high school and I was a very good athlete. I got a scholarship to attend University to play baseball or football. Both of the colleges were different. It came down to the sport that I liked the most and that was baseball. I didn’t think I would get as hurt physically if I chose baseball instead of college football. That was a rookie mistake. It turns out that baseball is just as dangerous as football. About a month after I started playing college baseball, I tore my ACL and that was the end of my career. I was totally devastated. I didn’t know what I was going to do with the rest of my life. I was scared and I started drinking. My parents saw me going down a hole and they stopped me before things could get out of control. Most of the reason that I was drinking was because I was in pain. The doctor suggested using medical marijuana to deal with the pain in my knees and my joints. They were aching badly but the doctor did believe that I would feel relief using medical marijuana. He stated that medical marijuana was not a habit forming like opioid or other pain pills. He suggested that we try it out and see if that would give me any relief. I regularly use medical marijuana now when I want to play sports or go for a walk. It helps me in acute situations and also lowers the pain level that I feel chronically.
