qualifying patient to apply to the Department of Health or other entity as set

Ready To Legalize Marijuana
It is so helpful in so many ways.
I have suffered from lower back pain for close to 20 years now and I have been on any and every prescribed pain medicine in that time frame. The only thing that has ever given me any significant relief is marijuana. I have not smoked for 12 plus years now because of the law, but think it is crazy that something that is natural and has proven time and time again to work is illegal. Please give me and millions of other Kentuckians relief.
I have suffered with fibromyalgia for going on a year in October 2016 have tried different medication and nothing has worked for me to help aliviate the constant pain I'm in all the time all day everyday
