    Does marijuana help you?

    why I use


    I've been a medical red card holder for several years in Denver. When I have debilitating migraine headaches, I have vaporized pot or eaten an indica laced edible for pain management. Despite the negative stereotypes about people who use pot that still are around, e.g. 'burnout', 'gateway drug', I for one, do not fall into those categories. I have no criminal record, have been in a white collar profession for almost thirty years, and have never used anything else. That stereotype of the 70s 'burn out' is long gone....the people you least suspect of using it are exactly the ones using it.
