Yesterday was the “Best day ever… so far for good reason but I need to start from the beginning.
Three days ago I met up with a couple that I was buying a small table from. The sale originated on FB Marketplace while I was searching for book shelves along with anything else that would help us get our “Storage Store” up and running.
We met in the parking lot of a local business and proceeded with the deal on the table along with some friendly conversation about buying and selling and then it happened. The question I get asked quite frequently which is “Do you use cannabis?”
Of course my answer is always yes to that question since I am a card carrying medical cannabis user.
From there the conversation was all about our personal experiences with the new cannabis laws and the state run dispensaries when suddenly the gentleman asked me if I was getting my meds delivered to my front door.
I knew there was a way to get delivery if you lived in or close to one of the big cities but since we live in the far western tip of Maryland I always figured there was no way to get this service.
It turns out I should have checked into the possibilities back then because there really is a way to get your cannabis delivered if you live anywhere in Maryland except the Eastern Shore and some parts of southern Maryland.
So today I am sitting here waiting for a confirmation call or text letting me know my order is on its way to my front door. O HAPPY DAY!!!
It is time for everyone to embrace cannabis for the medicine that it really is and the fact that I can have it delivered to my door is proof we are headed in the right direction.

In the Spring, my wife, Paula Cas wrote a post about my battle with chronic pain, pain clinics, and opioid use. Catch-22 Is Alive And Well.
Just wanted to post a short update about how things have been going since then.
After a lot of research, trial and error, I have come up with non-Opioid, no prescription treatment for my chronic pain that works for all but my worst pain days … Rainy days or extreme cold.
A high THC strain of Medical Cannabis usually with the colors purple or blue in the name in flower or dab form. I also found a website with high quality hemp based CBD Oil products, 750mg twice a day most days and 1500mg twice a day on bad days, that has been great help for pain and sleep. The final product in my new pain management program is from a company where my wife is involved. Plexus Worldwide offers a product called Nerve and Plexus Ease which has done wonders for my neuropathy.**
I have once again put the back surgeon on hold while I continue t0 do all I can to keep surgery, braces, canes and wheelchairs at bay as long as possible.**

The body gets stiff
You get cramps in your legs
Corns on your feet
As big as hen eggs
Gas on your stomach
Elimination is poor
Take Ex Lax at night
And then your not sure
You soak in the tub
Or your body will smell
It’s like I said folks
Old age is Hell
Your teeth start decaying
Your eyesight is poor
Hair falling out
All over the floor
Sex life is short
It’s a thing of the past
Don’t kid yourself friend
Even that doesn’t last
Can’t go to parties
Don’t dance anymore
Just to put things mildly
You’re a helluva bore
Liquor is out
Can’t take a chance
Your bladder is weak
Might pee in your pants
Nothing to plan for
Nothing to expect
Just the mailman comes
With your Security check
Now be sure your affairs are in order
And your will is made out right
Or on the way to the graveyard
There will be a helluva fight
You look pretty good
You look fairly well
Thank God your alive
Old age is HELL !
What you DON”T know about antibiotics is killing you.
How many people do you know who have never taken an antibiotic in their lifetime ? Probably not very many. The fact is a large majority of people in this country and around the world have been prescribed an antibiotic at one point or another.
Would you have been willing to take that pill or injection if someone told you beforehand that there was a good chance your entire body make up would be changed ?
The lady who wrote the story I’m sharing is an incredible person with an inner strength that can only be understood by myself and others who are living with the physical effects of this problem.
If your body seems to be breaking down quicker than normal then you will want to check Amy’s post out because she has shared a wealth of information on the subject.

The plaintiffs, including an Iraq War veteran, a child with a seizure disorder and an ex-NFL player, claimed that the CSA’s classification of cannabis as a Schedule I substance is so “irrational” that it violates the U.S. Constitution.
