Anyone here? What state & how difficult to get the go ahead? And do you trust local authorities? I don't begin to claim any understanding or comparison with what sufferers of hard core medical problems have to deal with. But we all have our reasons for use. Even those of us without "legit" needs (not legit as defined by mmj laws) usually have reasons intently more valid than "duh, I jus wanna get f'ed up, bro." A guy I've known for awhile just told me he has an mmj recommendation (I'm in one of the 12 states that allows it). Didn't go into details on how he got it, but I've known him awhile and I'm certain his "need" is no more dire than my own (that is, an improved quality of life due to less stress, more regular sleeping patterns; and a means of slowing and controlling a fast-moving mind). So, shamelessly, I'm curious about the possibility of obtaining such a coveted recommendation, without walking into a doctor's office and making up some bullshit story (because I'm not like that). Even with such legal backing I'm concerned it wouldn't help. Lots of stories of folks with legit mmj needs due to serious medical conditions getting thrown in jail anyway... It really is a crying fucking shame. I really do wonder what the U.S. government is protecting here. Cotton industry? Oil? What? Every government report on mj is full of lies anyone who uses or knows those who do will see right through. Tens of millions violate the law anyway.
