Medical Condition Treated

Application/Consumption Method
Inhaled as smoke

I smoked my first joint in 1975 at the age of 15. And I loved it. I loved everything about it. the way it smelled. the way it tasted. the way it looked. and especially how it made me feel. So I smoked recreationally throughout the 70's, 80's and 90's. but it wasn't until I reached my forties that I started to discover the medicinal benefits of cannabis. I use it fro pain relief, as a sleep aid, and for anxiety. I had a back injury in 2007 , back surgery in 2008, and was prescribed thousands of opiods during that time. but knowing of the dangers I self medicated with cannabis instead and when released to return to work in 2009 was promptly terminated when I failed a drug test. Ironicly, medical cannabis was legalized in Oklahoma in 2018. FYI I got a job in June of 2009 and have worked there to this day. all's well that ends well. Now at the age of sixty I consider myself a cannabis advocate. a cannnvocate.
