Absolutely! That is me almost word for word!

Hi NewDirections! Well I have a brother who has gone through the process in Montana and has his card but he said he has heard that the states with a mmc program are " really cracking down" and making it really diffucult to get a card. Have you heard of anything like this in CA? Did you go through one of the clinics who specializes in the mmc process or just your regular doctor. I feel nervous about presenting myself for the card. I don't know why but I just feel like I will be on trial! Like will I get the right combination of words out at the right time so that I am deemed worthy ya know? Going to be honest but also know that I am sort of "selling it" too. Does that make sense? This nervousness and anxiety has kept me from making an appointment.

Hi Makalani,

I picked a clinic that specializes in mmc. It was about $100 for the clinic visit. I was told to bring some medical evidence that supports my need for medical marijuana. They said you can bring in x-rays, prescriptions, dr records, etc. I brought in my zoloft bottle and when I talked to the dr I told him about how mj really helps for my anxiety/depression. He wrote my rx and I took it to a dispensary and bought some mj. It was not a difficult process.

I haven't heard about the state cracking down. It seems in CA the process to get a mmc is almost a formality. There are so many conditions that mj is helpful for. You just need to show something to support your need for green medicine.

I love it that someone in the spring thread refered to mj as an herb (I can't remember who it was, remind me )It is an herb that makes so many people feel better. I feel that the government doesn't have a right to say who can use an herb and who can't. If catnip is totally legal why isn't weed? It's ok if cats get high and not humans

Makalani, let me know if you have any more questions

Peace and love mamas

It's good to see so many new names on here, welcome all

The convo on what everyone's smoking out of is interesting to me...I have pretty much everything but use my vape the most just for the health factor and i feel more comfortable using that with a baby around my small apt. However, bongs are my favorite! it's retired now, we just get it out very rarely for special occasions. Dh uses a pipe and i share sometimes, for the social aspect of it. His fav is joints, but never spliffs-i really don't know anyone that does that anymore I guess. I think joints are so bad on the smoke factor and not very economical so we don't use them much.

Heard a lot of great things about using a vaporizer. When using a vape id there less of a burned mj smell left in the air than smoking? Seems like that might be the case. How about on your breath?
post #28 of 319
Really there probably shouldn't be any burned or mj smell when vaping since it doesn't burn it in the sense that smoking it does. That's why i use it--no second hand smoke for ppl around either and normally there's no smell. I do blow something out but i don't know if that's considered vapors or what. There're supposed to be smokeless. I don't think you can tell on the breath, I can't on DH, but hate how he smells after smoking from a pipe.

Summer Cannabis...

love those words together, makes me think of fresh herbs and flowers...

I log on here every few months and love love LOVE that you ladies are still around. Much love to all!http://www.mothering.com/discussions...milies/joy.gif

The Magic Herb... Helps to alleviate stress and reduce anxiety. Helps me to focus on the task at hand, helps me be a better mother, sister, daughter... It's underrated and unjustly illegal.

We need to join the social movement towards legalization, beginning with its medical benefits and extending out to the meditative qualities it contains. It is in fact, this plant that could unify us because regardless of color, political beliefs or nationalities, it's pretty much accepted as being a much milder effect than what the government makes it out to be.

Federal Govt has it categorized as a Schedule I drug, which defines it as a drug "with no accepted medical value in treatment" (along with heroin).... really???

Continuing a ban on marijuana is oppressive to women. We know how much more effective than Motrin it is during PMS. There is no better medicine than marijuana during a case of severe morning sickness...

It is oppressive to lower working class citizens when it is proven to be effective against depression. It is a plant we can grow in our backyards and save money. It is clearly better for mental clarity than the other legal stuff like alcohol and nicotine...

But let me stop ranting.... sorry!

I can't roll a joint for the life of me. I have a pipe but it serves me fine... although I would rather be suing a vaporizer but I can't afford one yet. Are there any for less than $75?

I am seriously interested in living in a State that has decriminalized mj, so if this sunny state don't do something to decriminalize it soon, I will have to consider other options. Asheville sounds wonderful, I didn't realize it was decriminalized in N.C.!

Anyway, have a wonderful summer mommas!

i just talked to my best friend yesterday and she's having such a hard time. she's been really sick for over a year, found out she has some kind of stomach disorder (don't know what it's called because i didn't want to pull info that she didn't want to discuss- i know it's genetic). but most of her problems started to surface after she stopped smoking mj about 2 years ago, she was fine up until that point. her hubby is in the navy and cannot have anything illegal in the house and if she or he is caught it can mean some major problems. she's going to do everything without her husband knowing and if she starts to feel better, she's going to let him know she's been medicating with mj. she wants to go back to smoking because she really thinks it will help her medicate, she doesn't like all the perceptions she's on and has been experiencing some side effect. i'm working with DH's friend to get her some mj because she can't risk asking around. this has been just a crazy week trying to get a deal for her, they both live on the other side of the country in 2 different states and it's just a ridicules situation because of paranoia on her part.

the only plus side is that they may end up getting transferred to san diego within the next year and she can get a card. only question here is, any one a military with a med card? if so, what possible problems can this cause? any one a military family that did not get a med card but is in a state that provides them because of military status? any thoughts?
post #31 of 319
Wow, that's terrible...my thoughts and prayers go out to your friend
Keep us updated on how it works out...too bad you don't live close to her so she can just come to your place to smoke, huh

That's just another reason it should be legal!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Never mind that heroin, cocaine, and methamphetamine all have valid and known medical value and are occasionally even used as such despite their (just as valid and just as known) drawbacks. Marijuana has LOADS of known and largely accepted value as a medicine and none of the drawbacks of the alternatives (e.g. antiemetics, antiinflammatories, antipsychotics, antidepressants, etc).

I can imagine it being quite difficult having a mj lifestyle in a military family, the risk is that much greater. mama2rio, how is the husbands stance on mj,although its risky for him, is he willing to risk it to help his wife? I wouldnt keep it a secret though, those things tend to blow up.

maminnatural, i found it hard to find a vap for less than $75, i checked craigslist and kijiji and no luck. I think id try to look for a used volcano

I thought I would share my favourite place/ activity to go/do with my herb, then we could all share.

I love, love going for a nature walk and smoking a spliff. I love being outside and hearing the birds and feeling the sunshine and breeze, notice its soooo much more special and enjoyable after or during a J? I like to go for a walk, babe falls asleep then we venture down a walking trail surrounded by meadows and forests. No traffic sounds or other people, just me and baby out on a walk. I feel so peaceful and truly happy inside. It seems to all intune itself and i feel so lovely and natural, enjoying a herb and being out in nature, its like thats exactly how life is supposed to be.

i really feel bad for her situation. i don't really know her hubby. we went to college together and then moved far away from each other, but still really good friends. i asked her his stance on things. she says she doesn't even think he's ever even tried mj, but isn't one of those "drugs are bad" type people, i guess he's a to each their own kind of stance. she just wants to see if smoking is going to make her any better, and if it does, then she'll tell. . i will update as situation continues for her. i just hope for some kind of recovery without meds that make her feel aches and so fourth to begin with. the whole situation just right out sucks and, well, no use preaching this here.

Love seeing this thread pop up on the front page when you log in! We are a cannabis loving mom and pop on Vancouver Island and I just wanted to say hello!
So happy to see a discussion board like this one. My husband is a medical user and an activist in the Vancouver/Vancouver Island area. He is a lawyer who helps med patients who are getting screwed around by Health Canada and the cops. I am so proud of all the work he does.
Happy Summer Cannabis!

vanislandmama, we are thrilled to have you join us! Your DH is doing great work, you should be proud! I haven't kept up on the Marc Emery news for a couple of weeks, do you know what's been going on? I was hearing lots of things on FB but not recently, just wondered if you knew...

I just wanted to comment on this real quick, DH complained a lot about my smoking even when I confined myself to the bathroom with the fan on BUT, I was ever so blessed to be gifted with a vape recently, and he still says he can smell it. Now I think that to a point, he's right, because even though the herb doesn't 'burn', it does get heated up. We disagree on how much it smells and what it smells like but I can tell you this - it's not as hard to 'clear' the air when I vape, and probably if I turned it down a bit it wouldn't smell so much. But he's just too damn picky, IMO And no, there's no stinky smell on your clothes or breath, so that's a good thing. Just my
