$10 worth of marijuana cost me $1827

I am a 26 year old female who had a major stroke at 21.. Thankfully I am for the most part okay, however I have constant muscle spasms on my left side of my body. So far I have been prescribed baclofen which is a mild muscle relaxer. I am so afraid of all of the side effects that the pharmacist pointed out to me and i’ve tried marijuana which seems to help better than the drug prescribed.

Recently I got put on probation due to a traffic violation which resulted to a possession charge for having $10 worth of marijuana.  It is now going to cost me $1827 when all is said and done. I would love to see some bills pass that could help my life get a little easier.
