When talking about marijuana the other day, I told a sitting legislator that I would grow my own or buy from the black market before I would go to a pharmacy to get my medicine.
Why would I say such a thing?

Many patients who choose cannabis have already gone through the gauntlet of drugs and other treatments and have finally found something that works.
