I relate to Bill Rosendahl’s article. Before I tried cannabis for asthma, I thought all those people saying it helps were just looking for an excuse to get high. I had no interest in getting high. I just wanted my life back.
Unfortunately for many patients this coming out is a problem. The legalized marijuana industry — and the thousands of patients who benefit from the plant’s medicinal use — still deal with the stigma of pot as a form of dope. There are people who still view the use of medical marijuana as just another reason to enjoy marijuana under the guise of medicine and pain management.
