I have suffered from IBS for 7 years now. I have been on numerous medicines that have failed to treat my symptoms. I go to work and come home and go to bed and stay there until i have to go back to work. Over the course of the last 7 years i have tried marijuana and it seems to be the most beneficial for me. I am currently in my bed crying as i write to you to plead that medical marijuana be decriminalized in Ga. so I can maintain some sort of productive life. Sincerely, Literally life or death.
