Marijuana is a Life Saver for Glaucoma Patients

Using the services of medical marijuana in Marlton NJ has been an absolute lifesaver for me. I come from a long line of glaucoma sufferers and marijuana has long been known to provide real relief for those suffering from this debilitating condition. I find it surprising that it took this long to allow people to get their hands on marijuana to help with this condition because we’ve known for decades that the substances in this drug helps those suffering from glaucoma. I remember reading about people getting joints from the government back when I was a kid and that was decades ago.

Why did it take so long? Because too many people still believe in that Reefer Madness movie nonsense that the government helped put out back in the 1930s. Back when Prohibition was a thing, the government didn’t want people turning to marijuana in order to get high so they unleashed a propaganda campaign to convince people that you would literally go insane if you smoked weed. It’s ridiculous, and it’s even more ridiculous that people still believe in this nonsense. Heck, I’ve drank and smoked and I can tell you alcohol is far worse for you than marijuana.

Some states are getting hip to the medical uses of weed, and that’s the case in New Jersey even though the governor is on the weed makes you crazy train. I was able to get my doctor to release my medical records so that I could obtain marijuana for medical purposes. It’s been great for me. I’ve been able to skip some of my prescription medications because the marijuana works much better. Will it cure the condition and prevent me from going blind? Doubtful, but it definitely decreases the pain and will likely put off the final stages of the disease for years to come.
