      I heard the pill did not produce a 'high' like ingesting the plant because some of the psychoactive elements, yes there are more than just THC in the marijuana plant, have been removed.

      Tried 2 drops of a medical MJ tincture last year. It was made for the physical effect which i felt for a while but my brain kicked in saying 'hey where is the high?' and i realized i did not want to go down that road each time i took the medication.

      Medical marijuana is just another option for people with severe SCI pain. I have some SCI pain but I know people that have much worse pain than I do, I can see it on their face so I do what I can to cope and watch what I eat and my stress level and take time out when I have to.

      Yes the pain sometimes takes my breath away and I get angry or hunch over and people go 'are you alright?' but this life is short and I often look at life as if from my death bed and ask myself how I would feel then about how I am living my life today.

          I can't smoke or eat pot either. Especially eat it... I get way too high for way too long. I get paranoid on it. I've taken just two hits (it was the real good stuff I used to grow in my 4x6 closet!) and been frozen at this keyboard for about two hours before I could muster up enough lucidity to make it into my bed without falling. Then get the covers over my head and worry about everything under the sun or moon. And I only smoked it after getting drunk... I would never smoke the stuff straight... it would be much worse. Maybe the weaker pot wouldn't be too bad but I think there are 2 kinds of people... or types of brains. Those who can smoke pot and relax with it and those like me who go bonkers on it. There's no choice in the matter. You can either handle pot or not. Now I rhyme all the time, see what I mean, isn't it keen...

          Hope you're feeling better soon.

          Bob.
          Worst thing ever-especially for a novice-is to smoke while drunk. Seasoned professionals can barely swing it.

            I'm puzzled by this statement. Conservative backward thinking?? How so? I am absolutely happy as hell I live in Iowa with a spinal cord injury. Friendliest people in the world live here and hardly any crime and some of the best schools in the nation. My kids can play outside with no worries all day long and its very accessible. They don't seem so backward thinking at the U or I when go up there for some therapy. Very progressive!!

            Okay, I rolled into that one. I was slamming Iowa for its conservative almost backward way of thinking about many things. In particular, I was attacking the idea that if you just believe, have enough faith and try hard enough you can beat a sci.

            I apologize for my skimming the article and not discerning all that I should have. Sincerely

              Yes, there are many good things in and about IA. I was on an undesirable job assignment and just wasn't happy to be there. The people were very nice too. Sorry to offend you

                  Marinol did nothing for my pains. I don't recall it causing any problems side effect-wise.

                    Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow."

                      Never said anything about doing either before getting behind the wheel. A novice pot smoker shouldn't toke after drinking... it usually makes them sick. Sorry if that's how you got hurt but don't put words in my mouth.
