"Have had 2 failed back surgeries within the last year, upcoming L-5 fusion, signs of arthritis already, nerve damage. I’m on all the normal meds for conditions like this and my health and mood is so up and down I’d like to be just cannabis. Is it likely this will happen for me and how long till it will happen? My buddy is epileptic and has already been getting his is a couple different forms."
It sounds like you have issues with chronic pain and arthritis and you would most definetely benefit from cannabis and likely qualify in Florida. One law is already in place in Florida that allows for low-THC cannabis and also cannabis for terminally ill patients. I would look here
and maybe contact your local NORML chapter or other patient advocates.
