I am a Veteran and a former Federal Law Enforcement Officer with the Federal Bureau of Prisons for 10 years until I sustained a work related injury that has destroyed my life. I suffer from chronic pain and depression among other things. I have been taking narcotic pain medicine for so many years now I can’t remember how long it has been. Having access to medicinal marijuana would change my life for the better however I can’t afford to purchase it myself. 1 ounce of medicinal grade marijuana can cost around $300 dollars and would last about a month. I implore you to approve this measure so that I can have something other than narcotics to control my pain and depression and I could possibly get on with my life. Thank you.
