I can honestly say that marijuana has helped with my type one diabetes. I have doctors orders to eat three meals a day and a snack just about two hours after I eat. All I do is eat and I’m never hungry. I’ve never had an appetite, even as a child. I’m just not a big eater, as you can imagine, this makes eating three meals plus snacks difficult to eat. Marijuana makes it easy for me eat and I actually enjoy the food rather than feeling like I’m about to throw up or have my stomach hurt because I tried to eat all of my food. Marijuana even helps with stomach pains, I’ve had stomach pains for years now and I can say that Marijuana truly does help. Its not just for hippies or dropouts. We have the evidence and research. Please stop being so ignorant and give this beautiful plant a chance.
