Marijuana is commonly used as a pain reliever! I use it everyday to help with bad migraines, the headaches are worse than any other pain that I have experienced and that includes child birth, then medical marijuana can be prescribed for a number of ailments and chronic pain is at the top of the list. Many studies have proven that marijuana can treat neuropathic pain and physical pain, and products love medical marijuana are, however, not covered by familiar health insurance. If a patient wants to try an alternate therapy such as medical marijuana, the cost is incurred wholly on the patient. The average price of medical marijuana in this state is much higher than the average price of marijuana and some of the recreational states. The prices could be a lot lower, especially because insurance does not cover the cost. I can get a whole bottle of prescription opioids for free at the doctor, but I cannot get marijuana prescribed to myself and others for the same price, a 1 week supply of Oxycodone would cost about $200 in medical marijuana, but nobody enjoys to pay that style of currency for pot unless they entirely have to. In states where medical marijuana has been legalized, we should try much harder to make sure that all of the patients that qualify have access to the medicine that they need. I hate spending all of my currency to buy the medicine that I need, but it is my only choice until the lawmakers gathering and decide that the dispensary owners can no longer gouge us on the price of medical marijuana.
