When I was a teenager, I was hit by an automobile when crossing the street.
I had the walk sign and there were legit few cars on the road, but halfway across the street, an automobile came cruising out of nowhere and slammed over me.
It was dusk at the time and the sun was just going down. The driver of this automobile kept going after he knocked me to the ground. I couldn’t transfer either one of our legs. A passing driver saw the accident and wrote down the license plate number of the offending driver that left the scene of the accident. That driver also called the police and the ambulance. When the ambulance arrived, they helped me on to a gurney. I went to the ER and they did a bunch of x-rays. Both of our legs were broken. I had three surgeries and a couple of rods and pins placed in our legs. After the accident, I had a ton of pain in both of our legs. The dentists prescribed pain medications. It did not take long for me to get hooked on the pain pills and after a while I was eating opioids every day like they were Tic Tacs. After a year, I wound up checking myself into rehab. That’s when I discovered medical marijuana, however medical marijuana honestly helps manage the pain and the addiction to pills. Medical marijuana is already legal in this state, but our insurance company won’t cover any of the cost. The insurance company will happily cover the dangerous pain pills that will make me addicted again, but they won’t help me pay for medical marijuana at all.
