When you are watching someone in pain or suffering, there is a natural urge to try and help that person.
For me, that has never been more the case than dealing with my mom.
But ironically, I’ve found that my mother is much more comfortable dealing with dementia thanks to medical marijuana. That’s right, the very thing that she was convinced was the bogeyman when I was younger, is now providing deep relief. My mother is at the end of her life and dealing with dementia. This incapacitates her to a large degree. But we are fortunate enough to have help at home that looks after her care. Still, I hated seeing that terror in my mother’s eyes. I ended up getting some medical marijuana information while I was attending a support group. This was a group of people who were also dealing with or had dealt with a parent in mom’s condition. And while the cannabis products don’t and won’t change her condition, they improve it. I got through the cannabis regulations in order to get access to the cannabis dispensary. There, I get the cannabis gummies that help my mother so much. The cannabis gummies really keep her relaxed and when she’s thrown deep into confusion from the dementia, she’s no longer terrified. I can’t tell you what a blessing that is. So I am still completely stunned that so many people in this country can enjoy medical marijuana benefits like this because it’s not legal. This seems completely absurd to me and I will continue to advocate for changes in the laws. All people of legal age should have access to a cannabis dispensary.
